I still have a couple of 3-inch diameter circular slide rules around the house. <BR/><BR/>I remember my dad teaching me how to use log tables when I was about a 5th grader. You might remember why the log tables were used in preference to a slide rule, but it is mute point today, with Excel and solar powered calculators with 13 significant figures. <BR/><BR/>I like to play a mind game with boy scouts by asking them about the square root of 16, then 9, 4, 1, 0, so far so good, -1, oops, insert long lecture, -4, -9, and -16. I once played it to perfection, convincing the bright young scout that we had just contrived imaginary numbers, so I asked him to ask his dad what is the square root of -16. His dad, a Boeing engineer, knew the correct answer, which blew the kid away. It was sweet!Legacy Userhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12901836484686104161noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-17068888.post-1150928341962141362006-06-21T15:19:00.000-07:002006-06-21T15:19:00.000-07:00Maybe ... although my boys like to steal my graphi...Maybe ... although my boys like to steal my graphing calculator and write insulting messages to each other!<BR/><BR/>Then I showed one of them how to switch to polar coordinates and play with sine and cosine functions. He had a lot of fun, and every now and then I still find my calculator with an interesting new "picture" on it.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
