  1. Connections Definition: a link, an association or relationship, coherence,

  2. Also . . . • Coherence • Relation to something else • A person, esp. one of influence or importance, with whom one is associated, as by kinship or common interest

  3. Reference or relation to something else • A means or channel of communication

  4. Connection (mathematics) • In differential geometry, a connection (also connexion) or covariant derivative is a way of specifying a derivative of a vector field along another vector field on a manifold. That is an application to tangent bundles; there are more general connections, used in differential geometry and other fields of mathematics to formulate intrinsic differential equations .

  5. Connection Machine • The Connection Machine was a series of supercomputers that grew out of Danny Hillis's research in the early 1980s at MIT on alternatives to the traditional von Neumann architecture of computation. • The CM-1, developed at MIT, was a "massively parallel" hypercube arrangement of thousands of very simple processors, each with their own RAM.

  6. Hillis and Sheryl Handler founded Thinking Machines in Waltham, Massachusetts and assembled a team to develop the CM-2, which depending on the configuration had as many as 65,536 processors.

  7. Dial-up Access Connection • Dial-up access is an inexpensive but relatively slow form of internet access in which the client uses a modem to dial the internet service provider's node, a dialup server type such as the PPP and TCP/IPprotocols to establish a modem-to-modem link, which is then routed to the internet. It is now legacy technology in the advent of widely available broadband internet access in the Western World.

  8. Delta Connection • Delta Connection is the name under which five regional airlines operate routes for mainline carrier, Delta Air Lines. • SkyWest, Atlantic Southeast Airlines, Comair, Chautauqua Airlines, and the American Eagle codeshare flights out of Los Angeles International Airport operate under this name. • On November 2, 2004Atlantic Coast Airlines ended service as a Delta Connection Carrier. Atlantic Coast Airlines reinvented itself as a low fare carrier called Independence Air based at Washington Dulles Airport.

  9. Love Connection • Love Connection was an American game showtelevision series which debuted on September 12, 1983. Its first run last episode aired in 1994 and the show re-appeared in 1998 until 1999. The first run host was Chuck Woolery who was later replaced by Pat Bullard.

  10. Connection (song) • Connection is one a popular single released by the britpop group Elastica. It was originally released in 1994 as a single and the album version wasn't released until 1995 on the self-titled debut.

  11. The Rainbow Connection • Written by Kenneth (Kenny) Asher and originally performed by Kermit the Frog in The Muppet Movie in 1979The Rainbow Connection has been covered by mainstream artists such as Kenny Loggins, The Dixie Chicks, Justin Timberlake and many others.

  12. Kenny Ascher received Oscar nominations both for the entire song score for the movie and for this unlikely radio hit which Kermit sings with all the dreamy wistfulness of a short, green Judy Garland.

  13. Actually, Rainbow Connection serves the same purpose in this film that Over the Rainbow serves in The Wizard of Oz, with nearly equal effectiveness: an opening establishment of the characters' driving urge for something more in life.

  14. The lyrics of the song are as follows:Why are there so manySongs about rainbowsAnd what's on the other side?Rainbows are visionsBut only illusionsAnd rainbows have nothing to hideSo we've been told and some choose toBelieve itBut I know they're wrong, wait and see

  15. Someday we'll find itThe Rainbow ConnectionThe lovers, the dreamers and meWho said that every wishWould be heard and answeredWhen wished on the morning star?Somebody thought of thatAnd someone believed itAnd look what it's done so far

  16. What's so amazingThat keeps us stargazingAnd what do we think we might see?Someday we'll find itThat Rainbow ConnectionThe lovers, the dreamers and meAll of us under its spellWe know that it's probably magic...

  17. Have you been half asleepAnd have you heard voices?I've heard them calling my nameIs this the sweet sound that calledThe young sailors?The voice might be one and the sameI've heard it too many times to ignore itThere's something that I'm supposed to be

  18. Someday we'll find it The Rainbow Connection The lovers, the dreamers and me

  19. Connection Puzzle • In a connection puzzle the emphasis is on combining a given set of pieces in a certain way. • Note that mechanical puzzles are excluded here; they are listed separately. However, some connection puzzles can be seen as simulated mechanical puzzles.

  20. Examples of Connection Puzzles • Connect Dots • Flim • Laser • Laser II • Laser III • Loop

  21. Metaphorically speaking . . . Katrina and Rita have created for teachers a Connection Puzzle!!

  22. And the question is . . . • In the midst of all the “disconnection,” how do we re-establish all those valuable connections?
