Geometric TranslationJust finished a little page on "translation" (not words but shapes!) here: Geometric Translation "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20051018 00:32:19
Re: Geometric TranslationIt's cool. Are you making one for transformations, etc? Friends are angels who lift our feet when our own wings have trouble remembering how to fly #3 20051018 07:35:51
Re: Geometric TranslationYep. I haven't decided on whether to do Rotation or Reflection next. Whichever is easier "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20051018 16:44:47
Re: Geometric TranslationThere both easy ten get harder. depends what you find easier. Friends are angels who lift our feet when our own wings have trouble remembering how to fly #5 20051019 01:29:43
Re: Geometric TranslationEnlargement doesn't like you anymore as you left him out and hurt his feelings. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #6 20051019 02:11:54
Re: Geometric TranslationLooks good. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #7 20051019 07:41:01
Re: Geometric TranslationJuntos: Cuadro! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20051019 22:13:05
Re: Geometric TranslationOkay, another multimedia feast, I have just done Geometric Reflection "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20051019 22:48:02
Re: Geometric TranslationLooks good to me. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #10 20051020 17:24:34
Re: Geometric TranslationYou could also say that it has to do with symmetry, if you wanted. I like it though! #11 20051020 19:43:22
Re: Geometric TranslationOh yeah ... symmetry ... hmmm, could probably have a whole page or two on that. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20051021 15:53:51
Re: Geometric TranslationAnd now I have done Rotation. I couldn't think of much to say, so I made two animations. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #13 20051022 13:44:37
Re: Geometric TranslationGreat! Not at all confusing! Character is who you are when no one is looking. #14 20051022 20:24:18
Re: Geometric TranslationThank you kind sir. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #15 20051023 11:26:53
Re: Geometric TranslationIs the wiki meant to be about teaching concepts of maths...because I was wondering if all of your explanatory pages should go/be linked to in the wiki? Eg. if in the wiki we created a page called 'congruent', and had links to those pages you have created. Or is the wiki for something else? #16 20051023 16:38:59
Re: Geometric TranslationThanks for mentioning the Wiki. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
