Writing in Mathematics Seminar - Mathematics is different from some other disciplines such as art and music in that it builds upon itself. It has traditionally been based on a series of axioms and theorems derived from these axioms, from which more theorems can be derived. Therefore, when an essay asks us to eliminate a concept fundamental to mathematics, it is difficult to make a choice since each concept has its merits and is necessary for understanding concepts that build upon it. This essay, although not feasible to implement in the real world, accomplishes the goals of a Writing in Mathematics seminar, which are to encourage students to think creatively about mathematics, increase the students’ skills in writing effective arguments, and show the students that there is far more to mathematics than what was taught in high school....   [tags: higher Education, math, higher learning] 830 words

Industrial Revolution Seminar Questions - 1) What caused the Industrial Revolution. There are multiple reasons that the Industrial Revolution started. It was mostly made possible by a revolution in agriculture, which improved farm productivity. New types of soil, the development of crop rotating, and the invention of new devices, such as the seed drill, all served to increase the quantity and quality of farm produce. This meant that there were less famines, and that women would have stronger babies, so population skyrocketed. Population explosion from both declining death rates and the enclosure movement, in which rich landowners kicked farmers off their land, resulted in more people migrating to the cities to find jobs....   [tags: Industrial Revolution, questions,] 1306 words

How to Solve the Foreclosure Crisis - How to Solve the Foreclosure Crisis Upon considering the foreclosure crisis I decided upon a solution based on my own personal experience. My husband and I paid off thousands upon thousands of dollars of debt, sacrificed vacations and other luxuries in order to obtain the financial standing to purchase our home. Shortly after purchasing our home in 2002 our situation changed drastically and so did our lives. In November 2003 I was down-sized from my employment of six years. Due to a medical condition I was unable to return to work for two and a half years, which eventually led to the foreclosure of the home for which we had worked so hard....   [tags: Economics] 1045 words

There are several possible reasons why such increases might occur. It may take time to get from the central queue to the next available server.

Double Standard in Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe - The Double Standard in Robinson Crusoe   As I read the excerpts from Robinson Crusoe I was quite affected by the double standard that was evident on the part of our "hero." This theme of the double standard is one that is realized in most antiquated texts. In explanation, whatever action the white European male performs is exceptionable behavior, but if another character, like a woman or a non-European does the same thing it becomes unexceptionable. An obvious example is Mr. Crusoe whose chosen profession was slave trader turned slave, a condition that was not an attractive lifestyle for him, but was fine for those who did not fit into his racial grouping....   [tags: Defoe Robinson Crusoe Essays] 414 words

Global Warming Merits Widespread Moral Outrage - Global Warming Disaster Merits Widespread Moral Outrage   Global warming will take its toll of human life to the tune of hundreds of thousands every year. According to John Broome--the Chair of Moral Philosophy at Oxford--these unfortunate victims of society's next big challenge will die by three main causes: heat waves, expansion of tropical diseases to temperate latitudes, and increased flooding. And yet many of my fellow EEB (ecology and evolutionary biology) grad students felt that the direct loss of life was a pittance in comparison with the indirect effects of global warming, such as the loss of ecosystem services caused by the devastation of the natural world and the social turmoil associated with the inundation of the many millions of homes by the rising oceans....   [tags: Climate Change, Greenhouse Gases] 1030 words

Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights     Often in literature, the fictional written word mimics or mirrors the non-fictional actions of the time. These reflections may be social, historical, biographical, or a combination of these. Through setting, characters, and story line, an author can recreate in linear form on paper some of the abstract concepts and ideas from the world s/he is living in. In the case of Emily Bronte, her novel Wuthering Heights very closely mirrors her own life and the lives of her family members.   Bronte's own life emerges on the pages of this novel through the setting, characters, and story line of Wuthering Heights....   [tags: Wuthering Heights Essays Emily Bronte]
