• ## Quartic Function: What To Do With The Sports Car

In 1540, a man by the name of Lodovico Ferrari, please be aware that I don’t think his name has anything to do with the sports car, was an Italian mathematician known for discovering the solutions to quartic functions. A quartic function is a function of the form ax^4 + bx^3 +cx^2 +dx+e, where a is a nonzero, which is defined by a polynomial raised to the fourth degree, called quartic polynomial. We will probably go more in depth about these quartic polynomials soon in class. My quartic…

• ## Final Concentration Of Eosin Essay

Results: At the start of the experiment, the initial flow rate was established as 20 ml min-1. This means that there is a steady flow of fluid or blood in your body (in this case, water) at a rate of 20ml min-1. In order to find the final concentration of the Eosin (2,5 mg ml-1) in the “blood” after 60 minutes a calibration curve had to be created by making up seven different solutions of eosin (11,25 μg ml-1) and water to compare it against their absorbance that was calculated in a…

• ## Trend Line Analysis

Have you ever looked at your math paper and questioned why do I have to make a trend line? Is making a trend line really necessary? Well, trend lines allow the user to see a more defined trend of the data. Also, the creation of a trend line allows a correlation between the two subjects to be viewed easier. Trend lines help people accurately determine future outcomes that can come in handy if there is a problem. This is possible because trend lines make it easier to find the slope intercept…

• ## Disadvantages Of Episodic Future Thinking

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) involves brain atrophy in areas of the core network (i.e. prefrontal, parietal and temporal cortices; McKee et al., 2006). These regions have been implicated in episodic memory (EM), memories for events related to one’s personal past (Buckner et al., 2005), and mental simulation for the future (Addis, Wong, & Schacter, 2007; Hassabis, Kumaran, & Maguire, 2007). Episodic future thinking (EFT) refers to the ability to envision oneself in a future or imagined scene that one…

• ## Reflection On Slice Fractions

In preparation for fractions number talk what I observed was very beneficial for students at the carpet it allowed students to discuss and share with one another. I liked the fact that after a student share students had to give a particular cue saying if they agreed with peer. I thought that was awesome. I also like how she went over what to expect during learning at table and how students will share. So some type of feedback was to be expected even if student did not still quite understand. As…

• ## Spiral Model Of Risk Management

The spiral model, a methodology that maximizes risk management to reduce risk to its lowest form. It is also more appropriate for handling complex requirements that are needed for the information system. Because of its iterative process, it is easy to adjust to ongoing requirements that the client may want without any issues arising. This is best suited for companies that are medium to large of size, as most of these system projects run from medium to high risk. Although this can be a very…

• ## Trial And Incongruency Effect

Introduction Ullsperger, Bylsma, and Botvinick (2005) investigated a phenomenon called conflict adaptation, which refers to the pattern in which the difference in response times between incongruent and congruent trials in a basic flanker task is smaller when the current trial follows an incongruent trial. At the time of their study, there was a debate in the field concerning what drives this effect. A previous study by Botvinick, Nystrom, Fissell, Carter, and Cohen (1999) argued that this…

• ## The Role Of Bilingualism In Language Development

Early acquisition of vocabulary, and the development of linguistic and communicative competence have been largely associated with the input children get from their environment. The social world, home environment, and routines children are exposed to provide the input they need in order to become competent speakers. Even when the child is in utero, the spoken language outside of the womb affects children’s sensitivity to certain sounds. Consistent with this idea, there is evidence showing that…
