If you were in high school now, do you think using GIFs and animations would help you understand scientific and mathematical concepts? Well, most likely since we’re usually hard-wired to be visual creatures.
So if you’re looking back at all those things you wish you understood better in high school or college, this set of GIFs will blow your mind with how easily they can explain a concept!
1. The Reuleaux Triangle
Spheres aren’t the only shapes with constant width. These convex planar shapes have widths that are the same regardless of the orientation of the curve.
2. This is how you drill a square hole.
With a Reuleaux triangle-shaped drill!
3. The ratio of Pi to a circle.
4. How to make Pascal’s triangle.
These are used to find combinations.
5. The Miura fold.
It’s how you can fold a flat surface into a smaller size by using tessellated parallelograms.
If you throw something, anything, up into the air, it will arc up and come down again in the shape of a parabola.
A radian is the standard unit of angular measure. The radian multiplied by Pi times two gives you 360 degrees.
8. Matrix transposition.
It’s formed by turning all the rows of the matrix into columns and vice versa.
9. Sierpinski Triangle.
Love fractals? This is a kind of fractal that can be reproducible at any magnification or reduction. It’s basically infinite!
10. This is how you can convert a cartesian (rectangular) to polar coordinates.
Can’t see a practical use? Imagine how maps are made into globes.
11. All polygons have an exterior angle that adds up to 360 degrees.
So even if they’re octagons (8), dodecagons (12), or centagon (100), the angles still all add up to 360.
12. A hyperboloid is made up of straight lines.
13. And this is what that looks like in real life.
14. This is how white blood cells work.
They hunt down and devour all the bacteria they can detect.
15. Earth breathing.
This is the earth’s cycle of ice and vegetation throughout the year. It looks like it’s exhaling and inhaling.
16. Smoke can burn too.
Flammable matter in the form of soot and other materials are in smoke, and they can burn.
17. Flammable gas within a contained environment.
This is quantum levitation through the use of magnetism.
19. Falling slinky.
This is how slinkies, no matter the material, fall.
20. Heavier and lighter gas.
We all know that not all gas have the same density, and here’s proof!
