He contributed hugely to the understanding of mathematics and geometry, especially in shapes. He is regarded very highly and is known as many things when it comes to geometry I really enjoyed doing this project on Euclid and learned a lot about geometry and where it all started from. Although I don’t fully understand most of Euclid’s work or his theories I enjoyed learning that he is the one that started it all and without his book ‘elements’ and later editions there would not be a lot of mathematical proofs and statements, especially in geometry. I did not know much about the history of geometry or even who Euclid was so I felt I learned a lot on the history of mathematics as a whole and where a huge part
I think Mike Rose was successful in being persuasive when he wrote this. I think he was successful because he not only states the jobs that require extra learning in the essay but he uses his own connection. He put his mother in the essay and talks about her work life and he puts in his uncle’s work life and talks about his transition to a higher position and the problems he had. In conclusion, there really isn’t a big difference between blue collar job and white collar jobs. One of the big differences is education level of the work.
"Some Lessons From the Assembly Line" review In the article "Some Lessons From the Assembly Line" by Andrew Braaksma (2005). Braaksma is trying to reach the audience of college students and blue-collar workers. With his personal experience he shows how his friends who attend college and haven 't worked long hours don 't understand why he is happy to be back at school, they don 't understand what it is like to work long hard hours all day long and not be paid accordingly. "There are few things as cocksure as a college student who has never been out in the real world, and people my age always seem to overestimate the value of their time and knowledge. After a particularly exhausting string of 12-hour days at a plastics factory, I remember being shocked at how small my check seemed" Braaksma (2005).
General Thomas P. Stafford was a pretty outstanding astronaut and man. He always worked hard and tried his best. The hard work paid off when he received his doctorate of laws, one of science, another for aeronautical engineering, and another in communications and humanities. This shows that Stafford was pretty well rounded in the subjects and that he was dedicated. These facts interested me because of two things.
Just like Will Allen went through a lot of obstacles in his life at the end he got where he wanted to be and it was all worth it. Through out the book he shows determination to be someone in life and he got it with patience. He wanted to prove everyone wrong and he wanted to prove that he could make his farm be successful and become a successful farm owner. What I have learned and will take away from this book is that life will be challenging but if you are willing to go through obstacles and fall a few times it will be worth it at the end. This book teaches you that no matter where you are from or what race you are if you are willing to change your life and do what’s best for your community and your family then nobody or anything should get in your
Victor 's excitement and thirst for knowledge does not intend to bring negativity to the world. When Victor was first creating the monster, he did not know what was to come from his studies; he just wanted to be able to prove that life could be restored through an inanimate object. In addition, the monster is the one to leave Victor 's apartment on his own and because of this he developes his own state of mind. The monster 's pessimistic way of thinking and manslaughter behaviours are not Victor 's responsibility because of the fact that Victor is his creator. Victor did not give birth to the monster and give him the intuition to kill but instead he gives him the beautiful girft of life.
Even at the age of 18, Dr. Martian Luther King was extremely passionate about the things around him. From this essay, I can conclude that even back then Dr.King was a honest yet straight-froward man. The audience for this paper looks like it was design for the next generation in mind. Not just students, but to broaden
He was not paid by any company to write the paper, he just wanted to publish his newest idea. He did have a concern of wanting to advance the field, but when talking exclusively about computer science that would not create
Although the sheep had been traveling with the young boy before the beginning of the journey, Santiago begins to truly take notice of the importance in the lessons he learned from his flock. “There had been a time when he thought that his sheep could teach him everything he needed to know about the world. But they could never have taught him Arabic.” He noticed and realized the dependence he had on his sheep and then found how much he could learn with outside involvement and contact.“There are probably other things in the world that the sheep can 't teach me, thought the boy as he regarded the old merchant. All they ever do, really, is look for food and water. And maybe it wasn 't that they were teaching me, but that I was learning from them.” Santiago then learns to live on without his sheep and decides to sell them to truly develop his own independence.
