ON TEACHING OF THE SLIDE RULE ON TEACHING OF THE SLIDE RULE Graesser, R. F. logarithm. The unit of distance on any scale is called its modulus. Thus the modulus of the C scale is the entire length of that scale. Granted that calculators have superseded slide rules, logarithms aren't even taught that widely anymore (I got them in high school in the late 's, but that was presented as an "optional advanced" topic then.) However, there are web/smartphone applications that simulate functioning slide rules, so you might consider looking for those instead. The first place where the Slide Rule has a real application in Plane Geometry is in the study of proportion and similar figures in Books III, IV and V. After the proposition is taken up in the class in the usual way, the numbers for the various known lines in a . Students may still like pouring over books, and research authors may still prefer to see their names in print. The challenge for those who produce innovative educational e-tools is to make them not just exciting, but relevant and enhancing for learning and teaching. Only then will any vestiges of digital illiteracy go the way of the slide rule.

Thompson's original slide rule book was also updated in a second edition ("The Standard Manual of the Slide Rule") that many collectors feel is the standard slide rule reference text. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the revised edition, but even this early work has a lot going for it.

This slide rule has been manufactured after a comprehensive study of the functional requirements involved and forms part of a new range designed for maximum efficiency.

An outstanding design feature of this range is the introduction of end caps for holding the two stocks rigidly in. Research problem 1.

The slide rule, also known colloquially in the United States as a slipstick, is a mechanical analog computer. As graphical analog calculators, slide rules are closely related to nomograms, but the former are used for general calculations, whereas the latter are used for application-specific computations.

Slide Rule Books, Manuals and Publications ; Meilensteine der Rechentechnik by Herbert Bruderer is a new publication (in German) giving an in-depth history of mathematics and computer science including descriptions of many historical devices used for calculations.

An extensive review is given by the Mathematical Association of America. T, Similar to the S scale. is in the interval, is in may be a similar scale of in the interval in which case subscripts may be used to distinguish the scales.

Complete introduction to the operation of the slide rule, and problem solving techniques. Based on a POST Versalog rule. Includes sample problems and answers, log and trig operations, explanation of all scales.

The book supplied by POST with this type of rule. Very Good book for self-teaching or instruction. Recommended for any higher-end POST. The book is divided into two parts, Part I, The Basic Slide Rule Principle: Typical Examples and Exercises (Chapterspp.); and Part II, Applications of the Slide Rule to Various Fields (Chapters36 pp.) Judging from the Table of Contents and the example problems included in the text, its purpose seems to be to teach the theory and use of the slide rule to a wide audience Reviews: 2.

In his second book, Joint Slide Rules: Sectors, 2-foot 2-fold and similar slide rules, expert Peter M. Hopp examines the joint rule, completing an important but neglected part of slide rule history. The book is a comprehensive account of joint rules and contains detailed information on over two hundred joint slide rule makers from around the world.

There are sections for Hemmi Normal Slide Rules, the Electro Slide Rule with Log Log Scale, and the Improved Slide Rule. The leaflet also contains an illustration of reading graduations on the scales, an explanation of Hemmi's construction techniques, and various technical problems that could be solved with slide rules.

Additionally, The slide rule does not tell you where the decimal point is located in the answer. To do a calculation with a slide rule you reduce all numbers to scientific notation with digits then use the slide rule to perform the basic operations.

In a separate calculation you find the order of magnitude by combining the powers of The Slide Rule: A Computing Device That Put A Man On The Moon: NPR Ed Before the smartphone, the laptop and the pocket calculator, there was a.

This book is about teaching with problems and the problems in teaching. By taking a close look at the actions of a single teacher, teaching a single subject to a whole class over an entire academic year, I attempt to identify the problems that must be addressed in the work of teaching.

Compute 8x8 = 64 on your slide rule: Move the index opposite 8 on the D-scale. Place a paper-clip hairline over 8 on the C-scale. Find 64 under the hairline on the D-scale.

Make up and solve multiplication problems, choosing numbers on your slide rule. Inexpensive slide rules have been available in this country for over thirty years, and their makers claim that for accuracy and utility they are equal to the more expensive varieties which have been manufactured for a much longer period.

The first "Unique" slide rule, the 10" log-log model, was produced at a popular price for students. skill in using the log-log slide rule.1 The ability to use a log-log slide rule effectively depends upon the possession of certain mathematical understandings, skills in handling various problems, and considerable practice.

in its use. Thus, the teachinz of a course in the use of the log-log slide rule becomes methodologically complex.

A slide rule is a mechanical device that uses the alignment of numeric values marked on sliding scales to perform mathematical calculations. For the past years, the calculations performed on slide rules have made possible such feats as designing.

The logarithmic slide rule is a compact device for rapidly performing calculations with limited accuracy. The invention of logarithms in by the Scottish mathematician John Napier and the computation and publication of tables of logarithms made it possible to effect multiplication and division by the simpler operations of addition and subtraction.

William Oughtred, (born March 5,Eton, Buckinghamshire, England—died JAlbury, Surrey), English mathematician and Anglican minister who invented the earliest form of the slide rule, two identical linear or circular logarithmic scales held together and adjusted by hand.

Improvements involving the familiar inner sliding rule came later. Steve Seale's collection of slide rules, slide rule books, and book reviews.

Versalog Slide Rule No. This slide rule is a genuine classic and deservedly so, with one of the best scale layouts ever devised for professional technical work. The construction is bamboo, a wonderfully stable, mildly lubricious material.

This set is unused and immaculate (the box is a little worn). The Classic Text suffers from lack of illustrations I suppose most of us crusty old dinosaurs learned slide rule use from this book.

This edition has no illustrations so I was prone to the same mistakes I made the first time I learned it. If this is your first time, be prepared for some extra frustration as you go through the exercises. /5(1). "And, because you never knew when there was gonna be a hot math problem, I wore my slide rule on my belt.

"My first two years, freshman and sophomore, was perent slide rule," he said. The Problem: Traditional grade books provide a very limited picture of a student’s progress, and students have no ownership of tracking their growth.

The Solution: Have students keep a record of their own progress in a “transparent” space—a Google doc, for example—where the student, teacher, and parents can view it any time. How to Solve General Chemistry Problems is a self-teaching text which helps students solve problems found in most general chemistry textbooks.

Its sequence of chapters is arranged to coincide closely with the sequence in most popular general chemistry textbooks. The aim is to make it easier for today’s student to use this problem solving tool as a supplement to any general chemistry app.

What is the significance of the Breitling circular slide rule. Breitling, a Swiss watch company, released their pilots slide rule and their pilots wristwatch in Specifically adapted for flight calculations, the Breitling Navitimer model calculated airspeed, rate of elevation or descent, flight time, distance, and fuel consumption for pilots.

Oughtred's name is remembered in the Oughtred Society, a group formed in the United States in for slide rule collectors; this author is a long time member of that society, which produces an interesting biannual journal mainly devoted to analogue computing devices and holds meetings and slide rule.
