Zoomable Number LineI am partway through developing Zoomable Number Line "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20111022 14:10:15
Re: Zoomable Number LineHi MIF; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20111022 19:00:51
Re: Zoomable Number Linehi MathsIsFun, You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #4 20111022 21:56:42
Re: Zoomable Number LineThanks guys. Yes, after a while there is simply no space to put digits, they overlap badly. Maybe I just let them overlap, and provide a "reset" button.

Re: Zoomable Number LineGood thoughts, maybe by taking the log of the scale I can determine the appropriate number of digits and the space they take up. Will work on it.

Re: Zoomable Number LineWhoa! I was just being funny with the crack about the .999999999... and needing more digits. I love digits and love seeing them but what was your original idea when you started on this one? Implement that! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Zoomable Number LineBut bobbym; I liked the idea. Now let me see ... I should check with you first. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #10 20111023 16:27:42

Re: Zoomable Number LineCool! Nice looking garden, too. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20111027 07:43:13
Re: Zoomable Number LineJust an update to let you know I am still working on this as time permits. I am trying to move some of the calculations to Full Precision as the rounding errors look really bad, but that is not as easy as it may sound.

Re: Zoomable Number LineFull of rustic charm ... and it looks like it has been there forever! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #15 20111101 18:34:13
Re: Zoomable Number LineUpdate: New version. Still a little buggy, but improved: Zoomable Number Line "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #16 20111101 19:36:02

Re: Zoomable Number LineFor a reason, I cannot unzoom it. In the heart of the night, when it's dark in the lights; I heard the loudest voice  a gun shot on the floor. #18 20111101 19:48:20
Re: Zoomable Number LineHold the shift key. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #19 20111101 19:55:35
Re: Zoomable Number Line
Now that works. In the heart of the night, when it's dark in the lights; I heard the loudest voice  a gun shot on the floor. #20 20111101 20:07:23

Re: Zoomable Number LineNice. Shiny. Looks like garden shed, but inside it is a fullyfledged stateoftheart game theater. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #22 20111105 03:41:00
Re: Zoomable Number Linethats cool mathisfun Love is the key to life #23 20111105 16:23:33
Re: Zoomable Number LineThank you ... still working on improvements (when time permits) "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #25 20111116 11:09:45
