• Ancient Greek Mathematics

    Introduction to ancient greek mathematics :

    Ancient greeks are regarded as one of the major discoverer of “Geometry”. The greeks were not intrested in numbers much. So they showed their interest in geometry which led to major discoveries. The notable achievements of the greek mathematicians were observed mainly in the period of 6th century BC to 4th century AD.

    The word “Mathematics” was termed by pythagoreans (the followers of pythagoras) from the greek word “mathema” meaning ” subject of instructions”.

    Major discoveries in ancient greek mathematics

    Some of the major discoveries made by the ancient greek mathematicians are as follows :

    The concept of theorems and postulates was introduced by the ancient greek mathematicians. Euclid’s elements were introduced. One of the most important discovery was theory of conic sections during Hellinistic period. Archimede’s principle was introduced during this period. Some major contributions were also made in the field of astronomy. Other achievements were also made


  • Environmental Science And Its’ Components

    These days there is there is a lot buzz about the world going green and preserving the environment. Well, I think that all of you might be reading something or the other about “environment and ecology” in newspaper, magazines or over the internet. So, let me throw light on this topic.

    Environmental Science is the scientific study of the ways in which biological, physical and chemical components of the environment interact and the relations between them. Environmental science and ecology are overlapped but different science disciplines.

    Environmental science and ecology are overlapped but different science disciplines. Ecology is the study of the interactions of living organisms with their environments, including relationship with other organisms. Environmental science is multidisciplinary in nature and provides a broad area of study of environmental systems integrating both biological and physical concepts with an interdisciplinary approach.

    Components of Environmental Science:

    Atmospheric Sciences examine the phenomenology of the Earth’s gaseous outer


  • Ergonomic Science Of Work Physiology & Work Demands

    Work physiology is the science that studies how the human body responds to the physical stress of work or activity demands. These physiological responses are important in maintaining homeostasis in the body during work activities and reducing the adverse effects of physiological fatigue due to work. Homeostasis is defined as the maintenance of a constant or changing environment. In practical terms, it refers to the relatively constant internal environment of the human body during both stressed and relaxed conditions, due to many regulating anatomical and physiological systems. These organ systems and physiological responses regulate cellular metabolism, energy production, cellular waste product removal, voluntary muscle control, and the flow of blood and oxygen to working muscles. An understanding of the role of major organ systems in the human body during work activities and the relationships between work intensity and recovery intervals is essential to the science of ergonomics.

  • Does Age Affect How Well You See Optical Illusions Science Fair Project

    Optical illusions are a byproduct of the human mind trying to make sense out of complex patterns. The brain uses what it knows about the world in order to interpret images and patterns. In doing this it sometimes adds to or deletes elements from the actual image to make it make more sense. In this science fair project students will be exploring how age impacts a persons ability to see an optical illusion.

    Hypothesis

    The hypothesis for this science fair project is that the older you are the more likely you are to see an optical illusion. The dependent variable in this hypothesis is the ability to see an optical illusion and the independent variable is the age of the test subject.

    Supplies You Will Need

    To complete this science fair project students will need a variety of printed optical illusions that range from simple to complex. They will also need three to four


  • Mathematics and Computer Science

    Computations and calculations may build an exciting career

    Learning computers and its applications might be a favorite option for everyone, but what about mathematics? For most of the students, mathematics is a dreadful dream that scares them with some calculations, proofs, geometric diagrams etc. But it is a fact that each and every scientific or engineering discipline is built on mathematical principles and theorem.

    Renowned English mathematician Issac Barrow quoted, Mathematics the unshaken foundation of sciences and the plentiful foundation of advantage to human affairs. Understanding the root mathematical concepts means you can learn most of the subjects easily. One of the perfect examples is application of mathematics in computer science.

    Computer instructions are written and coded with different types of programming languages which translate to machine languages. So those instructions or designs known as algorithm are based on some mathematical theories. If you have sound knowledge in mathematical theorems, it would be
