### From Rhombus to Internet(The Geometrical History of the ancient World)

2000
Have you heard about AA Alphabet? Have you heard about the HTML from Mezin? Did you know that 20000 years ago there was a Geometrical Revolution? Did you know that the angle, the rhombus and the spirals are older than the agriculture, the pottery and the kings? The history of the Rhombus is more spectacular than the history of kings and wars. But did you know that the kings appeared 3200 years BC and the Rhombus - c. 12000 years BC? Did you know that the Geometrical Homeland of the Man is the South East Europe? o.K. Did you know that the plants are healing today in the same way they were healing the Geometrical Man? Do you know how tasty is an apricot taken from your own garden? Do you know how sweet is a teacher when he's not a judge? Do you know that the Internet will change fundamentally the education? o.K. Welcome to our site and surf the answers.

### Math Applications For Science

2000
Love science, but afraid of the math you encounter? Have you ever had problems reading a graph or converting between different units? If so you've come to the right site. This web site will help you learn the math you will need to succeed in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

### Maths Universe

2000
A self-teaching project suitable for everybody who wants to learn more about Maths, speacially Calculus. This site has been designed in an interactive way, in order to improve and increase your knowledge. Since Caulculus is one of the most importante branches of mathematics, and one of the most used "techniques" for solving common problems, this site has been developed in order to have applications for it. Mathematics are part of our daily life, you use numbers, geometrics figures, variables, etc, and we bet that you haven't realized about that. You count money, you draw any kind of object made primarly of geometric figures, you make hypotesis about your grades and calculations about them. You see? Maths are everywhere!!! Our well known friends, the X, Y, Z variables, will go all the way together us and will explain step by step every process. Interactive exams, online help, examples, excercises, graphics everything sou you can learn more about it. Calculus of one varibale will be revised in this project. Just like we say: "... The greatest men are not who fight other men in battle, but those who fight the ignorance... "

2000
Our entry provides basic information about geometry. We have a glossary and activities related to geometric concepts. We also briefly discuss the history and uses of geometry.

### Quikie Math:The Geometry Experience

2000
This is a geometry site containing shortcuts and quick ways to help students gain a better understanding of geometry. This website will contain histories, lessons,problems, games,shortcuts, and more. It is a easy and fun experience for all ages to learn about the wonderful world of geometry.

### The Golden Ratio

2000
When people think of math, do they think of beauty? Do they think of things like pinecones and sunflowers? What does Leonardo da Vinci have to do with this? What do the Greeks, Romans, and people of the Renaissance have in common? They all a mathematics concept in common: the Golden Ratio. The most irrational number in the world is a basis for many things: math, art, architecture, biology, and this site explains how.

### Geometry

1999
Our entry was designed to be educational and fun. The entry title is called Geometry. This site is a course and reference in the study of basic geometry. Some interaction with the user was involved with quizes and the style graphics used. The site is made user-friendly by the maneuverability from one page to another. The entry overall was made to be pleasant to the eye, so learning geometry can be an educational and fun.

### Geometry for All

1999
Do you think high school geometry is only about completing two-column proofs? Whether you are a student taking geometry now, a student that has already had geometry, or a teacher, if you said yes to the first question, then you are in the majority. This web page has been designed to showcase a few geometry activities that demonstrate that geometry can be so much more-more related to real life, more hands-on, and more fun! The activities can be used by students themselves to help them understand geometry better or can be used by a teacher with the entire class. These activities have been tried and tested in actual classrooms and found to be very interesting, student engaging, and beneficial in helping students understand the concepts and make much needed connections to the real world. These sample activities are a part of a larger project. Our Think Quest coach, Lisa Willian, is developing a CD of geometry activities to help students throughout the state of Kentucky to understand geometry better. The Christa McAuliffe Fellowship funded this project. This web page was created to both share activities as well as give other students and teachers an opportunity to share with our team on this important geometry project. It has been a valuable learning experience for our team as we learned how to make a web page, program the graphics, etc. needed to create our Think Quest entry.

### Origami
