There are a myriad of reasons for the vast diversity in the ages of students attending college. The advantages of attending school with younger students are they are tech savvy savants, they see the world from a different perspective and were born in the internet era which effects how they connect with other people and the world around them in a manner that is quite different from what I have previously experienced. Many younger students have no idea what a card catalog or the Dewey Decimal System is but have advanced skills such as the ability to code, make web pages and do graphic design which is an advantage to them because they were born into the internet age. When I was in high school if you wanted information you had to look in a book,…
Long before Melvile Dewey came around and implemented his decimal system, personal library collections typically were curated and and managed to some degree by men. Considering that the form of public libraries that gave rise to the ones we have today, did not come into existence until the mid to late 19th century, it is surprising that women were allowed into these institutions. However, even from the birth of the field of librarianship, women had to assert their right to be there. In order to…
being at the back is along a bank of windows providing a lot of natural light for children to read by and even then if it is dark the lighting within the library is more than adequate for reading. The shelves in the children’s section are all at a level that any child can reach the books which makes it very easy for children to find the book that they want. As to the books there is a large variety of children’s book available to pick from. They are sorted by the Dewey decimal system in the…
60 was used for basic math and 360 was used for circles The Sumerians also gave us the decimal system. The Hindu’s gave us the Arabic Numeral System which gave mankind counting numbers. With the extension of numbers, math took off. The Hebrew’s gave us another numeral system but this one went into the hundreds. The Babylonians gave us the digit 0 and then we had a a completed number system for that time. Agriculture was a ginormous element when civilization was first coming together and it has…
hexagrams, in which yin and yang are represented by broken and solid lines (Perkins Jr.) Babylonians had a two-symbol system, but this system had a symbol for ones and a symbol for tens, so in the end this system depended on tens. Two symbol systems extend back, but Leibniz was the first one to see power in basic operations done in binary. Simple patterns begin to stand out. “And all these operations are so easy that there would never be any need to guess or try out anything, as has to be…
interesting, they said “I know how to work this out, you look at the first two numbers and then you look at the last numbers”. The child placed 2900 before 2092 when asked to place the numbers in order from smallest to largest. This misconception shows that the child’s understanding of place value, particularly with larger numbers is confused as they believed the ‘92’ was larger than the ‘00’ but they did not consider the numbers in the hundreds and thousands places. The child also wrote…
Ryan- Hello and welcome to X+Y math news at 9:30!!!! Our top story - during a fight, 5 and 6 divided. The whole problem is negative 5/6k=12. to help find what k= our mathematicians have done the following steps. To solve this problem first they found the multiplicative inverse of -⅚ which is -6/5. next they changed 12 into a fraction which is 12/1 then finally they along with cross cancel. Finally they found the answer which is k=-72/5!!!!! As well as another problem has showed up in…
The importance in learning that fractions are in fact divisional problems and be directly compared to against a decimal number. It is at this stage that there is many opportunities to demonstrate the relationship between fractions and decimals. Educators are able to introduce the idea by working with smaller numbers asking to share three items between four people evenly. The students are required to find that they need to look at the three objects as parts of a whole so that it can be divided…
It accepts an M-ary value that specifies a predefined symbol map with the number of distinct symbol map values to use as symbols. samples per symbol specifies an even, positive number of samples dedicated to each symbol. Multiply this value by the symbol rate to determine the sample rate. The default value is 16. symbol values specifies an array of symbol values with an order that corresponds to the symbol map. The number of QAM states in the array must be 2N, where N is the number of bits per…
Conclusion The hypothesis for the best angle to shoot a paintball to achieve the farthest distance possible was rejected.The data from the experiment that supports this conclusion is, the distance of the paintball that was shot from a 35 degree angle traveled, on average, 126.56 meters. This distance is 2.84 meters greater than the average distance of the paintball shot at 30 degrees. The average distance of the paintballs shot at 35 degrees was also, 15.31 meters larger than the average…
