It is a rematch some 13 years in the making, and one that will look almost identical to the first: the New England Patriots versus the Philadelphia Eagles. Since that Super Bowl, the Patriots have been back in the big game a bazillion several times, winning some and losing some, but this will mark the Eagles first Super Bowl (and only the second in their history) since 2005.
We continue our series of excerpts of Albert’s lesson plans for students from Chapter II of A Color Notation, the 1905 book that introduces the Munsell color order system using the three dimensions of color, HUE, VALUE, and CHROMA to define and differentiate color.
