The Wampus cat comes from American folklore as a variation of a fierce cougar. It also is compared to the Ewah of Cherokee mythology. In the myth a woman covers herself with the skin of a cougar and spies on the men of the tribe. While the men are telling sacred stories around a fire, she is caught and turned into a half-woman, half-cat by the tribe’s medicine man. The Wampus cat supposedly still haunts the forests of east Tennessee. Other legends state the Wampus cat is the spirit of...
Algebra, from the Arabic al-jebr, meaning “reunion of broken parts”, is one of the wide-ranging parts of mathematics, combined with number theory, geometry, and analysis. Algebra can basically be considered as doing computations much like that of arithmetic with non-numerical mathematical objects. Initially, these objects were variables that represented either numbers that weren’t yet known or unspecified numbers, permitting one to state and prove properties that are true no matter...
Geometry is a branch of mathematics that is concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the geometry field is called a geometer. Geometry arose independently in numerous early cultures as a body of practical knowledge concerning areas, lengths, and volumes, with elements of a formal mathematical science emerging in the West as early as Thales. By the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into an axiomatic form by...
Trigonometry, from the Greek trigonon, meaning triangle, and metron, meaning measure, is a branch of mathematics that studies the relationships involving lengths and angles of triangles. The field came about during the 3rd century BC from applications of geometry to astronomical studies. The 3rd century astronomers first noted that the lengths of the sides of a right triangle and the angles between those sides have fixed relationships: that is, if at least the length of one of those sides...
