Vinh Lee AP English July 19 2016 In Virginia Woolf’s excerpt from “Moments of Being,” she describes her adolescent years from her childhood when she would spend her summers in Cornwall, England. She uses many different kinds of language to convey and improve her memories as a child. In the excerpt she uses imagery and tone to help convey her memories with her family. Virginia Woolf uses specific events at the lake to explain her time with her father and how he gave her advice on being passionate and understanding of others. Her use of different languages, tone, imagery, and personal experience give readers an analysis on Virginia Woolf significant years of her past in which she accounts to the every lasting moment she had with her father. Virginia Woolf childhood past has helped her grow into a mature adult at a young age in which she conveys to the readers about how giving up your passion can help you grow as a person. Virginia Woolf uses imagery in her writing to give readers a better picture of what she was experiencing. It deepens the levels of complexity in her writing which makes each reader use all of their senses. “There was a little leaping tug; up through the water at length came the white twisting fish: and was slapped on the floor” is an example of her use of imagery because she is describing what it feels like to catch a fish. She was excited from catching the fish when they were taken out of the water and started flopping on the deck. Another use of imagery…
The Commander In the beginning of the book, Offred notices the Commander standing right outside what she now refers to as “her” room. He has his back to her and is peering intently inside of the room. Offred instantly feels that her privacy is being violated just as he is violating the rules stating that he is not to be there (49). That was the first time that Offred encountered the Commander. The Commander’s motivation was to see who the new woman was that moved into the previous mistress's…
The Untouchables is an American gangster film produced in 1987. The movie is set in 1930 during the prohibition era. Al Capone, a Chicago crime boss, has the entire city in the palm of his hand and supplies illegal alcohol. He has strong relations with the government officials and the police force, influencing them greatly enough to not investigate his illegal practices. One strong member of the Treasury Department, Eliot Ness, believes it is his duty to uphold the law and bring Capone to…
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…
Computers have all but replaced humans for doing complex calculations. But computers handle numbers much differently than humans do. At this point, the majority of people use base-10 for their math. The base of a number system refers to the number of number symbols used in that system. In base 10 the numbers used are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. Humans use this system because it shortens numbers. Humans have 10 fingers so it is logical that base-10 counting systems developed naturally. But…
2014 pp. 90 identifies that a major cause of student’s difficulties in mathematics has been how they understand and process numbers. The teacher then writes on the board 723- 246. The class is asked to copy and complete the above exercise in their books. The teacher then asked a student the answer. The student says “four hundred and seventy-seven”. The teacher interrupts the student: “That is not the way you have been taught to do it” The students haven’t discussed to reason on the answer…

Instruct What student misconceptions have you encountered related to fraction, decimal, and percentage concepts? How do you help students understand the notion of equivalence among fractions or prepare them for this understanding? One misconception I have encountered with fraction is that students have a misunderstanding of what the denominator and numerator…
A student will start to develop their place value knowledge once they are confident using number names, classifying objects, identifying patterns and as they begin to develop their counting skills. From Year 1, the Australian Curriculum expects students to count collections to 100 by partitioning numbers using place value (ACARA, 2016). This means students need to learn about grouping in tens and that two-digit numbers are made up of tens and ones. Booker, Bond, Barrow and Swan (2014, p. 87)…
I. Introduction I became interested creating and applying methodologies for mathematics education because the entry-level mathematics students often encounter difficulties in understanding magnitudes of large numbers. I shall begin my case study from some experiments that how accurately the children could estimate the numbers magnitudes by various aspects of a stimulus. Thus far, my research has followed two lines of inquiry. The first line of study is to identify children’s different…
last lesson taught to students’ in order to meet our standard. We will focus our lesson on breaking apart word problems that contain fractions and whole numbers. This will help students understand the correct order to write equations, and the correct way to dissect a word problem. We will be using our lesson as an extension of previous lessons, while also incorporating word problems. Massachusetts Curriculum Framework Standard(s): 7.) Apply and extend previous understandings of division to…
