In mathematics , a conic section or simply conic is a curve obtained as the intersection of the surface of a cone with a plane. The three types of conic section are the hyperbola , the parabola , and the ellipse ; the circle is a special case of the ellipse, though historically it was sometimes called a fourth type. The ancient Greek mathematicians studied conic sections, culminating around BC with Apollonius of Perga 's systematic work on their properties.
The Basic Library List Committee suggests that undergraduate mathematics libraries consider this book for acquisition. This is a specialized math history book that looks at the growth of axiomatics. It starts out even before there were axioms, with some approximate geometric formulas developed by the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians, and follows how things got gradually more formal and rigorous up through the foundational crises and the development of mathematical logic in the early twentieth century. The intended use is probably as a textbook for an elective course for upper-division undergraduate math majors, or possibly for pre-service teachers. The book includes a lot of detailed technical information, but does not develop much mathematics per se and does not require previous knowledge. The present volume is a Dover reprint of the third edition from PWS-Kent; the earlier editions were in and
In particular, he is recognized for his discovery of an original method of finding the greatest and the smallest ordinates of curved lines, which is analogous to that of differential calculus , then unknown, and his research into number theory. He made notable contributions to analytic geometry , probability , and optics. He is best known for his Fermat's principle for light propagation and his Fermat's Last Theorem in number theory , which he described in a note at the margin of a copy of Diophantus ' Arithmetica. Fermat was born in in Beaumont-de-Lomagne , France—the late 15th-century mansion where Fermat was born is now a museum. He was from Gascony , where his father, Dominique Fermat, was a wealthy leather merchant and served three one-year terms as one of the four consuls of Beaumont-de-Lomagne.
A Course in Modern Geometries pp Cite as. Eventually, however, this encounter should not only produce a deeper understanding of Euclidean geometry, but it should also offer convincing support for the necessity of carefully reasoned proofs for results that may have once seemed obvious. These individual experiences mirror the difficulties mathematicians encountered historically in the development of non-Euclidean geometry. An acquaintance with this history and an appreciation for the mathematical and intellectual importance of Euclidean geometry is essential for an understanding of the profound impact of this development on mathematical and philosophical thought. Thus, the study of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry as mathematical systems can be greatly enhanced by parallel readings in the history of geometry. Since the mathematics of the ancient Greeks was primarily geometry, such readings provide an introduction to the history of mathematics in general.

The significant thing, from the point of view of our present study, is that the ancient Greeks found in deductive reasoning the vital element of the modern.

Art and Science After School Program Kelly Gracia and Julie Chang developed a six-week middle school program to teach students about both concepts in art and evolution. This is an introduction to the chemistry of carbon compounds. The lecture emphasizes structure and bonding, reaction mechanisms, synthesis, stereochemistry, and applications to biological chemistry.
