EduGains Math has released the April 2015 issue of the newsletter Math in Motion. It includes an announcement regarding an online site OntarioMathEdResources.ca that brings together into one place “the comprehensive collection of resources developed or licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education to support student learning in mathematics”. And, the newsletter says that it will become available as a free app sometime in the Spring 2015.
Totally check this out!
The Grand Rapids Community College Mathematics Department is very pleased to announce that it will host two Mathematics Seminars in April, both to be presented by current GRCC students.
Our first talk: Wednesday, April 15, 3:30-4:30 PM in 102 Cook.
Gregory Metzner will discuss applications of Trigonometry related to his experience while serving in the United States Marine Corps. The title and abstract of his talk are below.
This talk will focus on using trigonometry to locate positions on a map, and should appeal to anyone with an interest in real-world applications of mathematics. Familiarity with basic trigonometry would be useful, but of course everyone is welcome!
Pop and cookies will be served at 3:15 PM.
Trigonometry in the Marine Corps
As a high school student, I did not appreciate math. Upon entering the “real world”, I learned that math is integral and used everywhere, and I found that…

PART 2 – APPENDIX ON A MASS-OSCILLATION MODE FOR CONDENSER COOLING WATER CIRCUITS
This handbook aims to describe the basic physical reality of the subject transients, as well as to make available the equations used for the numerical simulation of the time evolution of the main parameters of interest of a user-defined transient. Standard procedures of time-domain numerical integration can then be used to obtain the desired computer-generated simulations. The latter can be a useful tool for engineering forecasts of the expected behavior of industrial circuits, with particular focus on the cooling water circuits of the vapor condensers of large thermoelectric generating units.
The document herein presented is a synthesis of the joint research carried out by a Working Group of the International Association for Hydraulic Research (IAHR) during about 20 years of activity.
