This is the 30th week of school and the 5rd week of the  4th and FINAL 9-weeks grading period.

 

A reminder that if any student is absent, they are expected to watch the video of that day’s lecture, found in the shared google folder, so that they are up to speed when they return. 

SPRING FLING WEEK

It is also Spring Fling week on campus with dress-up days and class competitions each day, culminating with Thursday night’s Fun Night.  (See details below). Prom is on Saturday (see below for details)

MATH BIO:

Gaspard-Gustave de Coriolis (1792 – 1843) was a French mathematician, mechanical engineer and scientist.  He is best known for his work on the supplementary forces that are detected in a rotating frame of reference, and one of those forces nowadays bears his name, the Coriolis Effect.  Coriolis was the first to coin the term "work" for the transfer of energy by a force acting through a distance.

 

MATH FACT:

In physics, the Coriolis effect is an apparent deflection of moving objects when they are viewed from a rotating reference frame. For example, consider two children on opposite sides of a spinning carousel, who are throwing a ball to each other (see picture below). From the children's point of view, this ball's path is curved sideways by the Coriolis effect.  From the thrower's perspective, the deflection is to the right with anticlockwise carousel rotation (viewed from above).  Deflection is to the left with clockwise rotation.

    

 

Perhaps the most commonly encountered rotating reference frame is the Earth.  Moving objects on the surface of the Earth experience a Coriolis force, and appear to veer to the right in the northern hemisphere, and to the left in the southern.  Exactly on the equator, motion east or west, remains (precariously) along the line of the equator.  Initial motion of a pendulum in any other direction will lead to a motion in a loop.  Movements of air in the atmosphere and water in the ocean are notable examples of this behavior: rather than flowing directly from areas of high pressure to low pressure, as they would on a non-rotating planet, winds and currents tend to flow to the right of this direction north of the equator, and to the left of this direction south of the equator.  This effect is responsible for the rotation of large cyclones and mistakenly attributed to the direction of spin on the water when a toilet flushes.

 

 

MATH QUOTE

“You know what it takes to make a shot at that range? Everything comes into play that far. Humidity elevation, temp, winds, spin-drift. There's a 6-10 second flight time so you have to shoot it where the targets going to be. Even the coriolis effect, the spin of the earth comes into play.”—Bobby Lee Swagger (Mark Wahlberg) in “The Shooter”

 

LIMERICK:

On a merry-go-round in the night,
Coriolis was shaken with fright.
Despite how he walked,
'Twas like he was stalked,
By some fiend always pushing him right.

 

 

 

Have a great week,

Mathematics is not a careful march down a well-cleared highway, but a journey into a strange wilderness, where the explorers often get lost. Rigour should be a signal to the historian that the maps have been made, and the real explorers have gone elsewhere.--W.S. Anglin
