Celebrating Chinese New Year 2020

Today, January 25, 2020 (Saturday) is Chinese New Year, the very first day of a new lunar year. This new year ushers in the Year of the Rat, the first of the 12 zodiac signs in the Chinese calender. This year it is a Metal Rat.

I would like to wish everyone celebrating this auspicious occasion a Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year, as it is normally referred to here in this part of the world. Elsewhere it is also referred to as the Lunar New Year Festival or more commonly known as the Spring Festival in China.

  5. The best method to observe how a tool works is by taking a look at a real example. The tools below can help you learn the way to use the trapezoidal rule. Paid tools aren't simple to afford and many users particularly students can't manage heavy amounts of money. Besides that, there aren't any particular applications you should have on your computer or smartphone to use this tool.
