TITLE RESOURCE TYPE DISCIPLINE SOURCE
Cracking Kepler's sphere-packing problem
(PreK-K - Continuing Education) Reference - Article/Document
(12 - College Senior)
Computer Science NEEDS
The familiar piles of neatly stacked oranges at a supermarket represent a practical solution to the problem of packing spheres as tightly as possible. Now, a mathematician has proved that no other arrangement of identical spheres  ... more
Computational Geometry in C
(PreK-K - Continuing Education) Reference - Textbook
(College Freshman - College Senior)
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
Computer Science NEEDS
Book Description: "This is the newly revised and expanded edition of the popular introduction to the design and implementation of geometry algorithms arising in areas such as computer graphics, robotics, and engineering design. T  ... more
Bi-Convex Lenses Teaching - Tutorial
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This tutorial explores magnification by a simple bi-convex lens. It shows an object an its projected image through a bi-convex lens. It also explains how the distance of the image is calculated using the lens equation.  ... more
The Variable Lens Teaching - Simulation
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This tutorial explores the effect of lens shape on the interaction of a lens with light. Each side of the "window" is adjustable to produce a concave or convex surface. This applet also considers refraction, convergence, and dive  ... more
Refractive Index Effects on Convex Lenses Teaching - Simulation
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This tutorial examines how variations in the refractive index of both lens materials and imaging media affect the focal point of a bi-convex lens. The user can also vary the lens index and the medium index.  ... more
Lens Shape: Effect on Lens Action Flash Tutorial Teaching - Simulation
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This tutorial explores the effect of lens shape on the interaction of a lens with light. Each side of the "window" is adjustable to produce a concave or convex surface. This demonstration also considers refraction, convergence, a  ... more
Thin Lens (Physics) Teaching - Simulation
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This site demonstrates the optics of converging/diverging lenses and concave/convex mirrors. The user is allowed to move the object around, move the lens/mirror around, change the object's height, change the type of lens/mirror,  ... more
Plano Convex Lenses (Object Facing Flat Surface) Teaching - Tutorial
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This tutorial explores magnification by a simple plano-convex lens when the object faces the flat surface of the lens. The user can vary the position of the object. A brief explanation showing how the image distance is calculate  ... more
Convex Hull Algorithms
(PreK-K - Continuing Education) Teaching - Simulation
(College Freshman - Professional Development)
Computer Science NEEDS
An applet that demonstrates some algorithms for computing the convex hull of points in three dimensions. See the points from different viewpoints; see how the Incremental algorithm constructs the hull, face by face; while it's pla  ... more
Plano Convex Lenses (Object Facing Curved Surface) Teaching - Tutorial
(PreK-K - Continuing Education)
NEEDS
This tutorial explores magnification by a simple plano-convex lens where the object faces the curved surface of the lens. A brief explanation is included using the lens equation.  ... more
