Horror in ancient Greece and Rome[ edit ] Athenodorus The genre of horror has ancient origins with roots in folklore and religious traditions, focusing on death, the afterlife, evil, the demonic and the principle of the thing embodied in the person. European horror fiction became established through works by the Ancient Greeks and Ancient Romans.
Dimensional analysis also known as the factor-label method or unit-factor method is by far the most useful math trick you'll ever learn.
Maybe you've learned some algebra, but will you use it? For many people the answer is, "not after the final exam. What this is all about is just conversion—converting one thing to another.
This is something you will have occasion to do in real life. This is seriously useful stuff. This trick is about applied math, not about numbers in the abstract. We're talking about measurable stuff, stuff you can count.
Anything you measure will have a number with some sort of "unit of measure" the dimension attached. A unit could be miles, gallons, miles per second, peas per pod, or pizza slices per person. Example 1 How many seconds are in a day? If you have no idea what the answer is or how to come up with an answer, that's fine—you're not supposed to know.
What you are going to do is break the problem down into several small problems that you can solve.
Here's your first problem: Ask yourself, "What units of measure do I want to know or have in the answer? Math is a sort of shorthand language for writing about numbers of things.
If you can rephrase what you want to know using the word "per," which means "divided by," then that's a step in the right direction, so rephrase "seconds in a day" to "seconds per day. Ask, "What do I know? You know that there are 60 seconds in a minute.
You also know that in 1 minute there are 60 seconds. These are two ways of saying the same thing. You know that there are 24 hours in a day and in one day there are 24 hours.
If you could now connect "hours" and "minutes" together you would have a sort of bridge that would connect "seconds" to "days" seconds to minutes to hours to days.
The connection you need, of course, is that there are 60 minutes in an hour and in one hour there are 60 minutes. When you have this kind of connection between units, then you know enough to solve the problem--but first translate what you know into math terms that you can use when solving the problem.
If in doubt, write it out: All you need to do now is pick from these statements the ones that you actually need for this problem, so Ask, "From all the factors I know, what do I need to know?Stimulate your child’s analytical and memorization skills with Vocabulary, Spelling, Poetry ph-vs.com text puts an emphasis on the origin of vocabulary words; word analysis through the study of prefixes, roots, and suffixes; word analogies; synonyms and antonyms; and classic poetry.
How timely a posting! I am leading (dragging) my 7th and 8th graders through a poetry unit in which they are writing the poems.
(We did study some and analyze them, although it is a different ball game from the AP Lit course that I taught when I taught high school). Poetry (the term derives from a variant of the Greek term, poiesis, "making") is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning..
Poetry has a long history, dating back to prehistorical times with the creation of hunting poetry in. This explains the overall structure of the Course, including its purpose and aims and information on the skills, knowledge and understanding that will be developed.
“Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toenails twinkle, makes you know that you want to do this or that. Oliver Wendel Holmes Middle School and Holmes International Humanities Magnet is located in Northridge, California.
