Shapes of geometry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers Beth McKenna and David Edmonds explore kaleidoscope geometry with designs reflected in two or three mirrors. Various special triangles are used to generate semiregular and demiregular tessellations, stellar polygons, and solids
Shapes of geometry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers Beth McKenna and David Edmonds investigate many aspects of tessellations, including regular, semiregular, and demiregular, as well as Islamic mosaics. Transformational geometry is viewed by presenting Escher's tessellations and showing how to create them
Shapes of geometry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers Beth McKenna and David Edmonds encourage students to use an intuitive approach in developing a geometric system. They present the elements of a mathematical system, develop a four-point geometry, and demonstrate five postulates by building a model. Students are urged to propose theorems based on their observations
Big ideas in social science by David Edmonds( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are human beings less violent than before? Why do we adopt certain moral and political judgements? Why is the gap between rich and poor getting bigger? How do we decide which criminal policies are effective? What is the Population Challenge for the 21st Century? What is social science? In Big Ideas in Social Science, David Edmonds and Nigel Warburton put these and more of our society’s burning questions to 18 of the world’s leading social scientists including Steven Pinker, Ann Oakley, Lawrence Sherman, Kate Pickett, Robert J. Shiller and Doreen Massey. The result is a collection of thought-provoking discussions that span the fields of sociology, politics, economics, criminology, geography and many more."--Publisher's description
Shapes of geometry( Visual )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers Beth McKenna and David Edmonds discuss the Klein bottle; Leonhard Euler and the Koenigsburg Bridge problem, leading to the topics of networks and Euler's theorem; and the application of Euler's theorem to the Platonic solids
Shapes of geometry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers Beth McKenna and David Edmonds explore two different geometries, Lobatchevskian and Riemannian, differentiating these from Euclidean geometry. Through the use of spherical and hyperbolic models, the properties of lines and figures are investigated
