This paper summarises a report (Brown, Jones & Taylor, 2003) to the UK Qualifications and Curriculum Authority of the work of one geometry group. The group was charged with developing and reporting on teaching ideas that focus on the development of geometrical reasoning at the secondary school level. The group was encouraged to explore what is possible both(More)
The Tangle toy [Zaw15, Zaw85] is a topological manipulation toy that can be twisted and turned in a variety of different ways, producing different geometric configurations. Some of these configurations lie in 3D space while others may be flattened into planar shapes. The toy consists of several curved, quarter-circle pieces fit together at rotational/twist(More)
In this article, we address these shortcomings by detailing the gains achieved in the U.S. Combined Forces Command (CFC). Our experience suggests additional benefits can be gained from Y2K costs—which exceeded $3 trillion worldwide [2]—by using the experiences of Y2K testing to develop a method to improve an organization’s information technology systems.(More)
Remote tropical oceanic islands are of high conservation priority, and they are exemplified by range-restricted species with small global populations. Spatial and temporal patterns in rainfall and plant productivity may be important in driving dynamics of these species. Yet, little is known about environmental influences on population dynamics for most(More)
