Proponents of physical education often contend their case with these and other similar arguments, but upon closer examination of the physical education system, its true use and effectiveness are highly questionable. Those who argue that physical education is integral to the nation’s health must reexamine the nation in which we live, a nation in which more than one-third of adults are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Pennsylvanian legislation has mandated physical education since 1999, but since 1999, the adult obesity rate has risen by 11%. Regardless of the proponents’ claims, physical education is not having its intended effect on public health. (Note: I am not trying to suggest that physical education is deleterious to public health. I am just showing that physical education has done a negligible job promoting health). Furthermore, physical education consumes an entire class period of a student’s day, a class period which could be spent learning one of many highly important, pertinent 21st century subjects that the Common Core has inexplicably ignored: micro and macro economics, U.S.

I am investigating the impact of math in the various parts of baseball. I have collected data from the various aspects of baseball such as hitting statistics and pitching statistics that are from the MLB. With this collection of data that I have, I used a number of mathematical processes to analyze this data and get to the final statistic. Such as the pitcher's statistics of how many runs they allowed in a certain amount of innings and applying the mathematical formulas to figure out the end statistic which is their ERA and that tells us overall how good that pitcher is performing. Some of this data is shown in graphs throughout the paper and another big formula used in baseball is the projectile motion formula used to calculate how far home runs travel. In the end these calculations will prove how math is so important to baseball and how these formulas contribute to that by figuring out the end statistics of various parts of important baseball data such as hitting and
Social media can greatly affect anyone, no matter the age. With the research provided there is an accurate assumption that social media can have a negative and positive effect on the youthful. Schools have allowed kids to do homework with electronic devices even though some teachers agree that social media has a heavy impact on students. Social media can be a positive outlet for those who practice it correctly and can increase many skills. There are many positives and negatives when using technology that parental guidance is required. Even though, social media is supposed to be primarily the instrument for a connection and communication with others, p...
I will collect quantitative data through a survey administered to all teachers at Bethel Middle School. In quantitative data analysis, a researcher analyzed the data collected using statistics in order to break down the data into smaller segments that aim to answer the research questions. Researchers also interpret the data in light of what past research noted and past predictions or assumptions they, and others, have made (Creswell, 2015).
The goal of research is to create action leading to implementation or further research. The other goal of research is to inform or expand on a previous idea or concept. By using the methodology of formal research, collecting information and evaluating current trends in data can aid in creating programs, or a plan to resolve a problem, or provide an answer. Research can take an existing theory and either target a specific issues or reimagine the entire concept in order to expand upon it. Conducting a research project can result in the creation of a new theory that informs the academic community and the public of new information for application or review. Research can generate interest in past or current
Communication plays an important role and becomes an essential part in our daily lives. Today we have taken communication to new level as social media and social networking. They have had a tremendous impacts on the word, on our culture and in business as well. Social media websites are some of the most popular on the internet, such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. They are the places where people can interact with others easily and expose themselves to strangers. Our generation and the younger ones have more opportunities to grow up with the new development of technology that will shape the way they live of communicating and sharing ideas. The social media causes some problems that lead to less social interaction and negatively affect students academic, but it also brings benefit to people that creates new social connections to bring people from all over the world to be closer.
In today’s society, having a good education ensures a stable and prosperous future. Much pressure is inflicted upon students in order to have excellent grades, thus resulting in less time for extracurricular activities, such as sport. However, does consistent physical activity ensure an improved academic performance among peers at Marianopolis? Research has shown that being involved in fitness does improve grades. People who, in school, do not participate in extracurricular affairs tend to obtain lower grades than people who participate in sports. This subject is particularly interesting for students. It encourages them to practice more sports so that their grades could go up. Indeed, we believe that physical activity does in fact have a positive consequence on academic performance. In fact, research studies show a lot of correlation between physical activity and good grades at school. To that effect, a very interesting study by Professor Eric DeMeulenaere proves that students who participate in an extracurricular activity such as sports increase his or her chance for greater academic success. It has also been proven, that confidence plays a significant part in student’s academic standing. According to DeMeulenaere (2010), confidence can greatly encourage teenagers to participate in a sports team. Therefore, their academic performance will rise. This is relevant to our study because we are also interested in the happiness and confidence of Marianopolis students. Similarly, a study by several researchers demonstrates the positive effect PE classes could have on grades. Again, physical activity leads to greater self-esteem during school. (Sollerhed 2005). Another study completed in 2005 demonstrated a strong correlation between fit...
In the last 30 years we have seen a really increase on published articles that examine the relationship between physical activity, physical fitness, and academic performance among children. The number is truly astounding there were over 120 articles published on this topic in 2010 alone. These studies have started to show us that physical activity can have both an immediate and long-term benefits on academic performance. The reason why I bring this up is because we are now in a culture and in
Individuals should understand that the use or nonuse of social media has negative and positive effects on their lives whether they recognize them or not. Students who excessively use social networking applications can be negatively affected because they are spending too much time on these applications rather than paying attention in class, completing homework, studying, s...
The popularity of social media is rapidly increasing in the last few decades. This may be due to the students of colleges and universities as well as youth is widely used for global access. Social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook have become a craze for everyone nowadays. In these cases, some students are more concerned about social media or social networks than on teaching by lecturers and will cause affected their academic performance.
