How can I best learn new vocabulary items? What aids are there and what pitfalls should be avoided? How does a beginner learn to use a lexicon?

  • ἡ κυρτὴ ἐπιφάνεια ἀντικεῖται τῆς κοίλης ἐπιφανείας (ἐξωτερικὴ ἀντὶ ἐσωτερικῆς)
  • ἡ ἀκμὴ τοῦ κώνου - ἡ γεωμετρικὴ γραμμὴ ὁρίζεται ὑπὸ τοῦ περιμέτρου τῆς κυκλικῆς βάσεως τοῦ κώνου καὶ τῆς κορυφῆς αὐτοῦ
  • τὸ ὕψος τοῦ κώνου - ἡ ἀπὸ τοῦ τῆς βάσεως κέντρου πρὸς τὴν κορυφὴν ἀπόστασίς ἐστιν
  • ἡ μὲν διάμετρος διπλασιάζει τῆς ἀκτῖνος, ἡ δὲ ἀκτὶς διχάζει τὴν διάμετρον.
  • τὸ ἐμβαδόν = π.(ἀκτίς).(ἀκτίς) + π.(ἀκτίς).(ἀκμή)
  • τὸ ὄγκος = τὸ τρίτον τοῦ π.(ἀκτίς).(ἀκτίς).(ὕψος)
  • ὁ ἄξων τοῦ κώνου - τὸ εὐθυγραμμικὸν τμῆμα ὁρίζεται ὑπὸ τοῦ κέντρου τῆς κυκλικῆς βάσεως τοῦ κώνου καὶ τῆς κορυφῆς αὐτοῦ.
