Vehicles have become one of the most popular transportations for people to go to school or work. Therefore, the parking problem becomes the biggest issue for most universities and public areas.
Vancouver Island University has four campuses, which located in Nanaimo, Parksville-Qualicum, Cowichan, and Powell River. The problem also happens at Nanaimo campus because most students are driving their own cars come to school, however, the parking spaces of Nanaimo campus is not efficiency. This report is intended to improve the function of parking spaces at Vancouver Island University through better engineering. The main work will be managed and supervised by Smart Space Inc., which is a professional company of building or designing parking lots, in particular, Yami Al Shria, Xiaohan Li, and Yuting Li. The report will present the processes and details of enhancing the productivity of parking, and redesigning the new security system.
The company has many experiences of redesigning universities’parking spaces. The project team believes the new intelligent multiple-level parking spaces will improve the students experience in their future study lives, and the students are also able to save time to find a space.
Background of This Report
According to our research, VIU has about 18,000 full time and part time students (viu.ca, 2014). Many of these students drive their own cars to get to school every day. VIU has enough spaces at Lot F and Lot J to M, but due to their locations is far away from the main building such as Bldg. 255,250 and 315, thus, most students are willing to park their cars in Lot N, where nearby the library, Bldg. 255,250 and 356. Moreover, some students have night classes, and the Lot N nearby the li...

- The average person spends at least twelve years of their life in school listening to a teacher lecturing. Imagine how effective each persons schooling would be if the teachers understood how to cater to different intelligences. Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligence comes into play at this point. Gardner theorizes that there are around eight or nine different intelligences and each intelligence needs to be exercised in order to be refined. The goal should be to become balanced and proficient in as many intelligences as possible.... [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences, Intelligence]

- The theory behind multiple intelligence is that people display intelligence across a broad spectrum of areas: these areas are also completly independent of each other. (Grison, Sarah, Todd F. Heatherton, and Michael S. Gazzaniga. "Chapter 8." Psychology in Your Life. New York: W.W.Norton &,inc, 2015. 289+. Print.) It was proposed by Psycologist Howard Gardner of Harvard university. He was oppossed to the theory of general intelligence which states that if you do well in one field, such as math, you will do well in anouther: like English or Science....

- The multiple intelligence theory is based on eight different intelligences which reflect a person 's intellectual ability. This model of intelligence challenges other theories such as the General Intelligence Theory created by Charles Spearman. Spearman’s theory focuses on a person 's ability to perform efficiently while being tested as well as their general cognitive capability. The MI theory differs due to the fact that it explores how test scores are not necessarily accurate representations of the amount of knowledge a person possesses because it has been demonstrated through this theory and experimental research that human beings are not necessarily less intellectually capable if they do...

- There are many thoughts and theories when it comes to learning styles. The Theory of Multiple Intelligences is one such idea that could potentially assist adult learners if fully understood and accurately utilized. It is important to note that the many theories out there about learning styles and multiple intelligences are just that, theories. That is to say, the very nature of the Theory of Multiple Intelligences cannot be fully tested and therefore cannot be proclaimed as a full proof teaching guide (McGreal, 2013)....

- The Eight Multiple Intelligences When we think about intelligent, the first thing comes to our mind is a smart person. A person how has a higher score than other people in school. A person how has a high score in the intelligent tests, such as IQ test and GAT test. However, Harvard Professor Howard Gardner believes that intelligence is not about a high grade on the IQ test. In his 1993 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, he found that all people skills can be defined into eight different areas.... [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences]

- Introduction My initial reaction to the self-assessment was that it seemed a little simplistic. Knowing that it was only 24 questions, it didn 't feel sufficient enough to be able to accurately determine the level and areas of intelligence that one would process. One aspect that I did find interesting was the ever-changing criteria between the four pages of questions. While one focused and how often the participant engaged in certain activities, another focused of the enjoyment gained from different activities, while yet another was based on how likely one was to engage in said activity....

- Yellow Parking vs White Parking Just the other day, I arrived at school fifteen minutes before my first class started, but was late as a result of trying to find a parking spot. I drove around the two parking lots that were in the same area as my building, twice, hoping I would get lucky; unfortunately, I was not. I was deciding whether I should park in one of the faculty spots due to there were many of them available, but I did not want to risk getting a ticket from the school. I ended up parking at Burger King across the street, hoping I would not be involved in a car accident while crossing.... [tags: Parking, Parking space, Parking lot, University]

- Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence Raed Aljahane MSA 502 The theory advanced by Howard Gardner referred to as Multiple Intelligences, suggests that there are varying degrees of intelligence that an individual possess. Gardner proposed that there are seven forms of intelligence: linguistic, musical, logical-mathematical, spatial, body-kinaesthetic, intrapersonal and interpersonal. This theory proposes that teaching and learning should be based on an individual’s different and unique form of intelligence, (Armstrong, 2009)....

- Multiple Intelligence Toni Ann Irvine Columbia College Multiple intelligence Howard Gardner’s theory contains eight main multiple intelligence. As the years have progressed there have taken one out and is left with the main seven. These seven are: Linguistic, Mathematical, Spatial, bodily, Musical, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal. These are found in everyone; however, each person will excel in one or two. Once teachers can determine what intelligence the students will exceed on and teach to their strengths the student will learn much more.... [tags: Theory of multiple intelligences, Intelligence]

- Everyone have seen one of those parking meter on the side of the street. They might not look insignificant throughout everyday life, but it sure took up quite a bit consideration in urban planning. What is the right price for curb parking. If the price of the curb parking is too high, there will be too many vacant pace because no one wants to park there. Nearby business lose potential customers because the price of curb parking is too high. If the price of the curb parking is too low, there will be no vacant space....
