18 September 14

Today marks the birthdays of mathematician Adrien-Marie Legendre (1752) and physicist Jean Bernard Léon Foucault (1819). The swirling paisleys on my tie are reminders of Legendre's famous  polynomials and Foucault's investigations into the effects of earth's rotation on swinging pendulums. And today Mallie Jayden Elizabeth Kleppinger had lots of fun with pendulum swinging under our large willow tree!
