"First Circle in a Square" : image by Mike DeHaan
Once again we present a series of home-made images to establish copyright prior to publication as "The Circled Square Math Problem Claims Pi Equals Four".

Observant readers have noticed the grey areas in this image. I should have done that in the first picture, before making a copy and adding other details.

Perhaps this preview article might be considered a photoessay.

However, there might not be enough text to count as an essay.

"Begin Collapsing the Square toward the Circle" : image by Mike DeHaan
Here we begin to collapse the square towards the circle.

"Oh, the humanity!", as the square continues collapsing toward the circle.

This is the final image in that series.

In DeHaan Services, "One Math Problem for Pi when a Square Becomes a Circle" adds a link to a list of Canadian universities offering mathematics degrees, as well as notes for teachers and students and teachers to shop online for bargain textbooks, teaching supplements or reference materials. One example is Pearson Prentice Hall, justly famous for the "PH school math textbook" line, for various grades.

Actually I'm more comfortable making images of spreadsheets than of geometric patterns.

One Square Writing Tip about Planning a Series of Images

My square writing tip for today deals with constructing a sequence of images.

Let's start with my mistake. As I made the third or fourth image of the circle inside the square, I realized that the area between the circle and the square should have been grey.

I had filled the whole square with yellow. But that area really needed to be different.

Surprisingly, the Microsoft Paint program couldn't fill the area with the new colour. I had to add the grey colour with rectangles and thick lines...to each image.

I'm not sure whether this was a longer task than going back to the first image and re-building the others from it. However, it was painful and tedious.

My writing tip is to plan your series of images. Review the first image "critically", and also the second.

Carpenters say "measure twice and cut once". I'm not sure what artists say, but my advice is to plan and review before building a series of images.

That may be a square writing tip, but it could save you from working in circles.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
