Flatland is a fascinating novel taking place in the fictional two-dimensional world of the same name. The readers are guided through this new world by a square-shaped narrator who uses the first few chapters to explain the nature of Flatland, and the last few chapters to explain how he found out about the three-dimensional world.

Besides just being an interesting narrative about basic mathematical principles, the novel also brings up important questions about class, ignorance, and ethics. The narrative tests reader’s
While I was reading Flatland it was very confusing at first but as I kept reading it it started to make a little more sense. I think the country of Flatland is more complex and unique than what we most of the time perceive it as. The author explained it in a way most people wouldn’t really think of explaining it. I think there is a lot more to the country of Flatland than most people could even understand.
In the past few hundred years, many mathematicians have developed and discovered many different forms of geometry. Euclidean geometry is probably considered the most understood and well-known form of geometry and is taught widespread among school systems today. However, many non-Euclidean geometries including Spherical, Hyperbolic, and Fractal geometry also play an important role in the world of mathematics as well. As if four forms of geometry were not enough, there is also another branch of geometry that plays a big role in real world mathematics application: Taxicab geometry. In my opinion, Taxicab geometry is probably the least popular form of geometry.

‘What does the Hermann Grid tell us about visual processing?’ The Hermann Grid Illusion The optical illusion known as the Hermann Grid (see Figure 1.1), and credited to Hermann (1870), is composed of pale grey dots that appear at the intersections of white horizontal and vertical lines forming a grid on a dark (preferably black) background. These dots disappear when an attempt is made to look directly at the intersections.

Hot Air Balloon Analysis In the duration of this project there were many factors that needed to be kept into consideration. The most important was the laws of gas, because the hot air balloon needed to be be constructed enough to withstand the air and have enough room for the hot air particles to move making the balloon have a successful flight. Due to the hot air particles move as a faster rate making then collide to each other which causes the balloon to have enough energy to take flight. While actually launching the ballon I began to see the balloon that did take flight and those who did not.
Why is Hair Removal Essential? Aside from restorative reasons, there can be other convincing reasons why individuals need to evacuate hair; for instance therapeutic reasons. This is required when because of some hormonal lopsidedness ladies begin growing hair at spots where they shouldn't, e.g., facial hair. Additionally, before surgery a patient's hair requires evacuation so as to decrease odds of disease. This is finished by a basic brief strategy like shaving.
Life is hard but we’ve got to be living. To escape from the harsh reality we are living, we search for our happiness, or for what makes us happy even if it was fake, because we don’t care if what we are living or doing is real, or original all we care about is that it achieves our claim, and the problem is that we believe that it is real not fake at all, because that is what we see or what we want to see. Originality is not important anymore especially these days, since the machine has the ability to duplicate anything and remove its originality and since it is giving us all our needs, who cares if it’s originality, and since it is giving us all our needs, who cares if it’s original or not, we don’t even think about it all we think about is
