    the Endogenous Growth Theory. The Endogenous Growth Theory sought to explain the source of technology. This was a key driver in economic growth. Before Kenneth suggested this theory it was assumed that it happened outside of the economic system., economic activities, and economic models. From Arrow’s research they were able to figure out that the technical change was caused by economic actors. Thus the technical change belong in the model. From this it provided economic reason for firms to innovate. The last big thing Arrow did before his retirement was his studies with the problems caused by Asymmetric information. The issue with Asymmetric information was a loophole that gave the seller/producer more information that the consumer. From this came manny regulations such as warranties and third party authentication. Kenneth decided to tackle one of the major giants in this sandal. Kenneth analysed this issue with the medical care system. His research helped break many of the violations that were being carried out during that…

  • The Effects Of Colonialism In Joseph Achebe's Things Fall Apart

    Comes up to the missionary saying that “he would not do any harm to him if he were to just go back to his house and leave us alone… but this shrine which he built must be destroyed. We shall no longer allow it in our midst. I t has bred untold abominations and we have to come to put an end to it.” (Achebe, 176) This is showing that the people judged and disliked the white men pretty much because of the past and what has happened. In though Mr. Brown seem to start to build some…

  • Mathematical Proof Analysis

    Mathematical proof is a method used in both primary and secondary schools at varying levels. Children should be able to justify and give reasons for a conjecture they have produced in order to validate a mathematical proof. There are various techniques that can be used to illustrate the nature of proof in schools. Mathematical proof is defined as a thorough and believable argument to support the truth of a prediction in maths, which turns the assumptions into valid conclusions (Haylock and…

  • Interactional View And Genderlect Styles

    As we delve deeper into our theories on interpersonal communication, we begin to learn more about ourselves and how to interact with the people around us. Whether they are in our lives on a personal, professional or combined capacity. This week I have decided to look at the theories of Interactional View and Genderlect Styles (Griffin, 2015). When we study Interactional View, a theory developed by Paul Watzlawick, we can see how communication has shaped us into the people we are today.…

  • Tom Stoppard's Representation Of Gender In Arcadia

    standard practices during the time period because he prefers pleasure from sex from unconventional methods over loyal monogamy. Septimus is academically tutoring Thomasina, but is also teaching her sex in a unique manner considering their time period. This introduces Thomasina’s desire for knowledge, but also how sex and mathematics can be a societal battle. Septimus then immediate contrasts sex to math in order to portray how even though they seem like binary oppositions, they are immensely…

  • Proof In VCE Mathematics Study

    that one of the central goals of school mathematics, notably at the upper secondary level, is the development of proof concepts (Coe & Ruthven, 1994). The incorporation of algebraic proofs in Victorian Mathematics education also refutes the criticism that the focus on algebraic proofs theme is sporadic at the secondary school level (Pedemonte, 2008). Many different methods of proof are stated in both the VCE Mathematics Study Design 2016-2018 and some VCE Mathematics textbooks: Specialist…

  • Methane-To-Methanol Reaction Report

    A. Defining Reaction Mechanisms and Catalyst Structure The methane-to-methanol reactions that we aimed to evaluate consist of four critical steps starting from the initial reactants (CH4, NH4+, oxo): C-H activation followed by a hydrogen atom abstraction (HAA) from CH4 to form some combination of the hydrogenated complex, ammonium or ammonia, and a methyl radical; a radical rebound (RR) to form a methanol adduct and ammonium; methanol dissociation from the metal; and catalysis regeneration via…

  • The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Experiment

    action at a distance would describe all the uncertainties of quantum physics and would help us understand the unknowns of quantum mechanics. There have been varies experiments that support the claims of action at a distance and those who disagree and look to disprove this concept. One of the experiments that disproves the argument is the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiment in short known as the EPR experiment. The correlation in this experiment mainly suggest that there are no influences between…

  • Summary: A Stroll Through Calculus

    These things don't exist in math. Math is full of "rules" that don't have exceptions. Things such as the Pythagorean Theorem will always work for right triangles. There will never be a right triangle where a^2 + b^2 does not = c^2. This is what I like about math. Math is a subject that I think would never Let me down ; It has no contradictions. It's something that's reliable and useful. I've learned that without math, life would be a cycle of events without reason. If I ever wonder why when I…

  • The Pythagorean Theorem: Euclidean Geometry

    Pythagorean Theorem The Pythagorean Theorem also known as Pythagoras’s theorem is a relation in Euclidean geometry that are the tree sides of a right triangle. It’s the sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse. The equation use for it is A squared plus B squared equals C squared.The Theorem relates the lengths of the three sides of any right triangle. The theorem is named after the ancient Greek. There is evidence that indicates that…
