Engineering Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics Degree Objective: Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics Mathematics and violin are the only two things could make me feel peaceful. I don’t want to say how much I love mathematics or how hard I have worked in order for the university to offer me the admission. It is a little hectic to exaggerate a discipline you aim to research. How about just say something about myself and my understanding of mathematics? Mathematics seems ambiguous to many people around me. Kids who are good at learning or practicing mathematical problems are usually regarded as smart, gifted or even genius. Unfortunately,…

My childhood memories regarding learning mathematics has been for the most part positive from 6th grade onwards. From 1st grade to 5th grade I was not conscientious so at times math tests produced anxiety but math was, at the same time, easier and simpler back then. I recall being the fastest person to state the multiplication tables in 4th grade. During 6th to 8th grade, although I was not necessarily the smartest, I landed at the top of the class in advance math since I was very hard working.…
There are three main branches of study under the umbrella of mathematics including, operational research, statistics and mathematics itself. Operational research (OR) is also known as management science and focuses on the analysis of decision-making processes - especially in large companies or the military. Well-known areas include the analysis of voting systems or game theory. Statistics is driven by real-world problems, mostly issues that can’t be broken down into simpler parts and…
Business Math was first put into practice by industry leaders, George Dantzig and Harold Kuhn, in the 1950’s. Business Mathematics is important in everyday life because not only does it help companies and organizations record and manage business related operations but it is also helpful for companies and organizations to make data driven decisions that ultimately relate to logistics, supply chains and warehousing. Business math differs from other types of math’s because it consists of more…
It is true that mathematics subject is totally different from other general subjects .In all over the world subject mathematics perceived as a core in educational systems..it will be better to say that mathematics is a science and used in daily life . Mathematical achievements can be monitored by teachers learning process and by science and education department .The aim of mathematics subject to develop a constructive approach and student must have the ability to construct their own internal…
rejected based on careful experimentation. His experimentations culminated in the development of the hypothesis that white light is composed of all the colors, and that what we see is the reflection of some of those colors. The data he gathered from his experiments supported this hypothesis, and he communicated his results in the treatise Opticks (NewtonMSS). Newton 's use of data gleaned via observation to support his findings was revolutionary and represents one of the greatest leaps in the…
According to U.S. Department of Education, eighty-one percent of Asian-Americans and seventy-one percent of Caucasian students do not attend high schools that offer a complete education in mathematics (US Department of Education). Studies show that students are not pursuing the STEM education because they are not introduced to applied math and science programs at an early stage in life. When a STEM program is introduced in elementary school, children gain interest in STEM education at a faster…
grades that she entered high school at 10 years old. This was unusual during Johnson’s time, for most African-Americans’ education stopped after the eighth grade.Katherine Johnson graduated high school at fourteen and proceeded to graduate West Virginia State College at eighteen. In college one of Johnson’s math professors, Dr. William W. Schiefflin Claytor, pushed her to pursue a career in mathematics. He made sure that Johnson took as many math classes that she needed and even created a…
Practice in Mathematics and Natural Sciences With respect to two areas of knowledge, consider the claim “Without application in the world, the value of knowledge is greatly diminished." Knowledge is a treasure; without it, we would not be where we are. The only reason why the human race has lasted so long is because of the application of knowledge. What is knowledge? Knowledge is the accumulation of ideas and concepts in someone’s mind. Knowledge can be taught or can come from within. What is…
