This chapter provides a series of exercises associated with self-defining continuous fields where the entity is an attribute that is continuous across space and thus is in some sense self-defining. The relations are those involving distance and magnitude and there are a number of associated spatial concepts such as the first order primitive we call height, and second order notions of continuity, gradient and trend.

In this chapter we develop student’s appreciation of the 'first order' basic spatial concepts of location, scale, adjacency, distance, and projection as well as the variety of ways by which they can be 'measured' in different ‘spaces.

The Traveling Salesman Problem is one of the most intensively studied problems in computational mathematics. These pages are devoted to the history, applications, and current research of this challenge of finding the shortest route visiting each member of a collection of locations and returning to your starting point.

This poster was developed to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Voyager 1 and 2 launch. The learning objectives of the activity Voyager 1 and 2: Where Are You is to help students appreciate the great distances between the planets and their comparable sizes, view the solar system in three dimensions in a useful scale, and visualize the paths of the Voyager spacecraft and their distances and positions.
