    Gifted Simulation Analysis

    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 logic” (Parks, 2009, p. 262). By evaluating the simulation, does it take information that gifted students understand already to a different level that might challenge them in many different aspects? If it doesn’t, and is just a computer activity that they could do without much critical thinking, then is it really worth putting into the curriculum? The other criteria that I would use to evaluate the suitability of the simulation is the ability to differentiate. Part of differentiation is making sure that the students have flexible pacing and the resources are used at varied levels of complexity (Tomlinson, 2013, p. 295). This is important because if a student is not able to go at their own pace, then it defeats the purpose of using the simulation because they could further the simulation by going faster than someone who might need more time. It also enables a teacher to make sure that everyone gets the same information but at their own level since there are various levels of…

    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…

    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…

    The Philadelphia 76ers trend is upward sloped, and attendance increased as the Sixers win percentage went up. From 1994 to 2013 for the most part there wasn’t much divergence from the line of best fit expect for in the years 2001 and 2003. In the year 2001 the divergence is extreme; based on the line of best fit, one would expect approximately 80 % attendance for a 52% win rate, however this was not the case. In 2001 the attendance was at the Sixers highest between the years of 1994-2013 at…

    Today, I am interviewing my very close friend Nathan Hayes (male, 14). He is struggling with a slow disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). We both do competitive fighting and he travels with me and the competition team at Focus Martial Arts & Fitness. He first found out he was going blind when he was 10 years old. He just said “Oh, just another obstacle.” and continued living a normal life. He Made a ‘Bucket List’ where he wrote a list of things he wanted to do and see before he goes blind,…

    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…

    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…
