Hands-on Trigonometry Proofs Hands-on Trigonometry Proofs
by Tessellations
This set contains four separate "proofs" of trigonometry relations, with examples of a Pythagorean identity, a sum formula, a double-angle formula, and two sum-to-product formulas. Demonstration of each relation is accomplished by physically rearranging the pieces to establish equalities of areas or lengths. These are not rigorous mathematical proofs, but rather visual common-sense proofs. As such, they help make these abstract relationships real and believable. By actually handling the pieces, students engage their minds to a greater degree than they would by merely looking at the proofs on paper. The color instructions describe how each proof is demonstrated, and four reproducible worksheets reinforce the material. Contains 20 magnetic foam pieces. Grades 7-12.

Hardness Collection with Test Kit Hardness Collection with Test Kit
by Hubbard Scientific
The determination of the hardness of a mineral can be an important step toward its identification. Hardness is the resistance which the smooth surface of a mineral offers to being scratched. A diamond is the hardest of all substances and can only be scratched by another diamond. Over a century ago, Friedrich Mohs made up a scale of hardness which is referred to as Moh's scale. It does not imply an exact hardness, but is set up so that any mineral can scratch all those beneath it in the scale, or can be scratched by those above it. This kit includes all the minerals in the Moh's scale of hardness, except the diamond. Talc is the softest, so it is given the number 1. Diamond is the hardest, so it is given the number 10 (a diamond is not included with this kit). Quartz is often used as a division in the scale and all those above 7 are called hard minerals. The minerals in this kit are these: 1. Talc 2. Gypsum 3. Calcite 4. Fluorite 5. Apatite 6. Feldspar 7. Quartz 8. Beryl 9. Corundum

The staff at EHO try very hard to answer all our mail. We have had many of our responses to email returned as undeliverable. We also delete unread a great deal of spam. If your email message header sounds like it is spam, it will be deleted. "You Should See This!" or "Have I got something great for you" are examples of subject lines that would be deleted unread. If you use 'EHO' in the subject line it will not be deleted unread. If you have not received an answer to your question, please resend your email. We usually have a delay of 1 to 2 weeks in answering email because of the number of requests we get. Those wishing to request links to our site should read our linking page before writing us. All our resources are posted online. We do not mail information to postal addresses.
