Car of the future : engineering for the environment( Visual )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tom Magliozzi and brother Ray take a light-hearted but shrewd look at America's four-wheeled future. As "Click and Clack" they explore everything from a glitzy Detroit auto show to the earnest homebuilders of Boston's AltWheels Festival, from a hydrogen-powered bus fleet in Iceland to a green think tank in Colorado. They check out hybrids that plug into a household outlet and an electronic sports car that goes 0-to-60 in 4 seconds. Tom and Ray meet experts in biofuels and lithium batteries, mixing sharp observation, slapstick, and probing interviews. With soaring prices at the pump and worries about the global greenhouse, it's no laughing matter. But the car guys turn an expert, comic eye on the promise and pitfalls of tomorrow's auto tech."--Container

Forms part of a series that looks at interesting, real-life applications of mathematics. Looks at the role of mathematics in creating realistic special effects for movies and theme parks. Explores dimensional concepts, such as methods for interpreting three-dimensional forms on a two-dimensional surface. Examines the role of perspective in art and drawing and looks at the emerging worlds of virtual reality
The numbers game( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forms part of a series that looks at interesting, real-life applications of mathematics. This programs looks at the role of mathematics in understanding movement in sport and improving the performance of athletes. The focus is on the role of data gathering and analysis in this process. The program looks at examples such as how a tennis ball behaves when it hits a racket, how sports scientists analyze a running style, and the role of motion in figure skating jumps. Research that analyzes elite athletes' mental states to learn how they deal with stress while performing is discussed

Forms part of a series that looks at interesting, real-life applications of mathematics. This program looks at the role of mathematics in exploring the Earth and mapping and navigating its surface. Viewers see how aerial photographs, ground exploration, and trigonometry were used in the 1930s to map a mountainous part of the Yukon Territory. The process of mapping the sea floor and the stars is discussed, as well as the development of global positioning systems (GPS)
Mission to planet Earth by United States( Visual )

Now the technology developed to explore other planets is being used to monitor this living system. How will satellites merged with powerful computers help peer into the future to help predict global temperature and changes in the cycles of life? Join scientists as they chart a course for a healthy planet and reveal our world in ways that were never possible before

The shape of space by Jeffrey R Weeks( Visual )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the use of computer graphics and non-technical language, author Jeffrey Weeks explains the idea of topology, an area of mathematics important for theorizing about the shape of the universe. A glimpse of non-Euclidean geometry is provided by showing how a two-dimensional space a "fundamental domain", may be considered to be the surface of a torus, with properties different from those of a different plane. The analogy is extended by showing a cube as a fundamental domain. Also included is an interview with Jeffrey Weeks
