Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)Two cute little animations I just made: Using Ruler and Drafting Triangle (Language Note: US=Triangle, UK=Set Square) "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20051204 21:42:39
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)I like it. I especially like that you're using MathsIsFun merchandise. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20051204 21:55:44
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)Good job! Very neat. #4 20051204 22:40:05
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)
You managed to decipher the text? Correct! I drafted both the Ruler and Triangle/Square. I even took the trouble to mark them in inches and cm. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20051207 21:08:32
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)The protractor got jealous! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20051208 01:36:18
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)Very nice. I made up a puzzle from it, too. Try to fit the protractor into the orange shape, so that it doesn't touch the orange lines at all. It's quite easy, but still, I made it up and I am proud of this achievement. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20051208 07:30:56
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)LOL! ... maybe I should create a line of "fit the protratactor into the polygon" puzzles! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20051208 09:36:03
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)Rod, you are getting very good at this, I love it all! School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #9 20051208 16:37:38
Re: Using Ruler and Triangle (SetSquare)Thanks, Rora. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
