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, computer science, physics, engineering, economics, and social sciences to solve management problems. In operations research, problems are broken down into basic components and then solved in defined steps by mathematical testing. Mathematics is certainly…
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…
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…
In the article Superman to the Rescue: Simulating Physical Invulnerability Attenuates Exclusion-Related Interpersonal Biases (Ackerman, Bargh, & Huan, 2013) Julie Huan, Joshua Ackerman, and John Bargh set up a number of studies including a pre-test, study one, study two, and study three to demonstrate the relation between physical invulnerability simulation and positive or negative reactions to being excluded in social situations. They also consider how the reactions of exclusion can change when…
INTRODUCTION Students of all levels of education experience math anxiety. Math researchers define math anxiety as a ‘feeling of tension and anxiety that interferes with the manipulation of numbers and the solving of mathematical problems in ordinary life and academic situations’ (Finlayson, 2014). The purpose of this paper is to examine how math anxiety impacts children? Also what we can do as School Psychologists to prevent and help manage math anxiety in children. This paper will go over the…
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…
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…
technically challenging tool. It takes time because the optimization results requires a lengthy post-processing work. According to (cite) “it is important to realize that, discreet or continuous, topology optimization is only a conceptual tool and requires post-processing of the optimized geometry.” Otherwise, it may result in the following layout that make no practical scene such as the previous chair example. The chair example show the capability of this method in cutting the cost and the…
a feature of a proficient team. Furthermore, the research posits there is a positive relationship between network cohesion and level of knowledge transfer. Furthermore, this study uses methods similar to those in my proposed methodological design. Namely, the study uses sociometric methods to characterize network features (network range, tie strength, and network cohesion). Jackson’s paper is a literature review of social networks; Jackson describes, summarizes, and evaluates the existing…
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’…
