As of 2014, 38 percent of suicide cases were related or caused by social media. Scientist further investigated this correlation and found out that 50 billion of contents are shared monthly using social media. Many of us question this outrageous catastrophe, but to truly understand the immense power behind social media, details must be acquired. Identifying the details of social media, social media is a relatively new phenomenon that has lingered this world for the past decade. With the fusing of technology, internet-based applications have allowed the sharing of messages, thoughts, and details at the speed of light. The dawning of the new age has come, where social media is an extension of our body, exhibiting our everyday lifestyle. In Malcolm Gladwell’s essay “Small change”, he described the many viewpoints on the impacts of modern technologies such as social identity, communication dynamics, and even the effect of social media on activism. He clarifies social media by drafting a comparison of events from the various ages we dwelled. I will be discussing how Gladwell disrupts the flow of his writing with wrongful conjunctions of supporting details, thus, confusing his crowd and the unfair comparison of his supporting detail. However, Gladwell creatively described the meaning of weak and strong ties corresponding to activism by applying historic happenings to support his ideas. In “Small Changes,” Malcolm Gladwell describes the correlation of social media to social,…
Input also known as resources could be human or financial resources as well as other necessary input to support the program. Activities are those events that produce the output. The output consists of the products and services available for the customers. The customers are the users of the products/services produced at the output level. The outcomes are benefits or changes resulting from activities and output. When it is closely related to the output, it is called short-term outcome. The further…
One of the main criteria I would use to evaluate the suitability of a specific simulation is whether or not the simulation involves higher order thinking. One of the traits that “differentiates gifted students from their age peers is their exceptional capacity to perceive information and use it productively” (Parks, 2009, p. 261). As a teacher, we are “challenged to select or design instruction to teach reasoning processes that are abstract, sometimes requiring a technical understanding of…
with the Logo turtle on screen in sixth grade was my first exposure to computer science. I was immediately fascinated by the idea of approximating a smooth circle with a regular polygon of, say, 360 sides. Staring at the “circle” on screen, I could not quite digest the fact that it was something produced in a fundamentally different way compared to the one I could draw with a pair of compasses, though neither of which was ever close to being the perfect, mathematical circle that probably does…
Safwan Waheed Advanced Academic Writing “Recently, 2.4 children are born each second!” (Cite) Well, we have limited resources on our planet, so how can we articulate the anticipated problem of overpopulation? People, no matter of their number, need sustenance such as food, accommodation, and education .But interestingly underdeveloped countries have a large increasing rate in their population than developed countries while underdevelopedcountries have no mastery of their natural resources. In…
Mathematical models are used to organize large amounts of data to evaluate and consider for any decision. The first sentence of our book states this direction. "The underlying theme of management science, also called operations research is finding the best method for solving some problems…" (1) Operations Research enables planners to make choices in areas that is useful in the management of organizations. Operations Research combines a number of mathematical systems using, statistics,…
This took arduous mathematical modeling and computation through the MATLAB software. I contributed in implementing the chassis and motor design my utilizing AutoCAD. Another important project I’ve worked on was a three-element Windkessel Model, used to represent a pulsatile flow in the arterial system of the heart through a MATLAB simulation: a healthy unobstructed model and one in which hypertension caused a defect in the parameters used in the mathematical model to simulate the portrayed…
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…
This paper by Granovetter looks at the correlation between the level of network overlap and network strength. Namely, the paper looks to answer the following question: Is the degree of overlap of two individuals’ social networks correlated with the strength of their tie to one another? Furthermore, Granovetter provides a socioeconomic perspective on the implications of social tie strength- looking at tie strength and job acquisition. Granovetter interviewed a random sample of 54 individuals from…
misinterpret the questions. According to Bergqvist’s study, students think that the meaning of “prove” and “show” are significantly different, where “show” is supposed to be less rigorous and less difficult. Therefore, the verb “prove” should be used when proof is required (Bergqvist, 2005) Some worked examples of proof in the VCE textbooks show the rule or working steps rather than instruct the proper explanation of to how and why those proof strategies are used to support students’…
