ideals for themselves. Religion, in many cases three main components within itself. First and the most obvious, the history of an individual religion, it’s culture and concepts which are explored within it. Second, the rules or mechanics of religion. Lastly, faith being the core of religion, due to the requirement of it for someone to believe what the individual’s religion is formed around. To show that faith isn’t only required for religiousness, math, seen as a universal truth which itself cannot be proven wrong is ironically derived from faith. Axioms which are the basis of all math cannot be proven right, however we all accept math as true and useful within the world. Euclid’s The Elements provide the postulates which make up all Euclidian geometry, these cannot be quite proven however it is quite hard to argue with; It is possible to draw a straight line between two points. (Fitzpatrick) This is just the first postulate or axiom proposed by Euclid. The fifth postulate which is more questionable says: if a straight line falls across two other straight lines and the internal angles on the same side whose sum is less than two right angles if extended these lines will eventually meet. (Fitzpatrick) Euclid knew this postulate was more questionable, and only elucidated it four times throughout The Elements, evaluating all of his proofs until getting to a point where he could not progress without it. Those who find something like the fifth postulate more questionable or didn’t…
Over time, the Greek civilization has had many different and unique inventions. However, Greek Geometry was one of the most crucial inventions ever discovered. Geometry helped to find out precise measurements, construct advanced architecture, and become the leading civilization in mathematics. The invention was discovered by a mathematician named Euclid. He had many math theorems of his own, and later wrote his own book. The Elements contained all the works from previous Greek mathematicians,…
In this paper, the author has explained how mathematics can be taught to software engineering students. It is important for software engineering student to know mathematical foundation and techniques to solve problems. Mainly the foundation contained logic and discrete mathematics and techniques that author explained are specification and reasoning. The specification is a process in which informally given concepts are transformed into mathematical model and theory. The reasoning is the process…
Are there any languages in which we don’t use words? I can there are languages like that, I consider math and music to be languages, while logic can be also be considered language but it doesn’t apply to all 3 rules of language. The reason why math and music are a language because it applies to the 3 rules of language. Language is rule governed, intended, and open-ended. What is language? Language is when words, information, or emotions are exchanged. That is why logic is considered to be…
city of New Kensington, we must understand what they are and what we can learn from them through observation. Cultural landscapes are defined as the places we, humans, live. A cultural landscape is the cultural properties that represent the combined works of nature and man. Other definitions include a geographic area, including both cultural and natural resources and the wildlife or domestic animals there, associated with a historic event, activity, or person or exhibiting other cultural or…
Axiom of choice was formulated by Zermelo in 1904 and is known as Zermelo’s axiom of choice. This axiom stated that we can choose a member from each set in a collection of nonempty disjoint sets, C (Schechter, 2009). Additionally, according to Janes (2008), there exists a set X which consisting of one element taken from each set belonging to Y given that any nonempty set Y members are pairwise disjoint sets. Taking a role as a basic assumption used in many parts of mathematics as stated by…
One of the most exciting parts of Wellesley College is the marriage between liberal arts and sciences. I want to be in a place where my curiosity will be nurtured, challenged, become mine. A place where I can debate nature vs. nurture, the paradox of the American dream, and the axioms of life. I believe Wellesley College is the place for me is because almost everyday, I find myself spiraling down a internet wormhole.-from wanting to learn more about the cardiovascular system or the story of…
In the past 20 years technology has advanced very far and has taken over many parts of human lives. The large use of technology have made real human interactions more rare as it is now possible to talk to anyone at anytime with the use of social media and SMS. The artist Pawel Kuczynski uses the painting Islands to portray the western american culture as isolated individuals due to their addiction to social technology. Through an examination of the audience and purpose, the use of satire and…
Section 1.) Introduction-Keynes’s axiom of Non -additivity Consider the following assessment made by Keynes in the A Treatise on Probability in chapter 26 concerning the use of mathematics in the social sciences and liberal arts (Keynes’s terms these moral sciences) : “The hope, which sustained many investigators in the course of the Nineteenth century, of gradually bringing the moral sciences under the sway of mathematical reasoning, steadily recedes—if we mean, as they meant, by…
As a robot engineer, my mechanism is programmed to achieve the high expectations of the owner through objective list theory. The rival engineer’s theory is hedonism, they believe this theory will help to civilize our world. In my persuasion process I will use examples from the film, “Life on the Axiom from Wall-E”. This will provide the truth that my product is well improved and can achieve greater things for a perfect life. Objective list will allow the owner of my apparatus to use the tools…
