All are welcome, refreshments will be served.
Understanding Visualization Tools
- In this course, students will investigate the ways in which visualization effects learning in different disciplines by creating interface tools for JMU’s video wall, a 72-node visualization system. In preparation they will examine how these systems are used in other teaching and research settings, and study the variety of visual needs across the disciplines.
IVS Colloquia (Wednesdays at 12):
February 18- Edwin O'Shea (Math and Statistics)
- Is Seeing Believing in Geometry?: An Illustrated edition of Euclid's Elements
- Euclid's Elements has long served as the model for reason, a tour de force from ancient times of the tension between visual belief and rigorous proof. Oliver Byrne's 1847 edition of Elements is a most extraordinary and visually arresting edition that sought to ease this epistemological tension. In this talk I will discuss Byrne's edition's unique place in understanding and enjoying Euclid.
