## Core Math Investigation

- Core Math Investigation 1) When x is more than 0 and increases (e.g. from 5 to 6), y increases at a much faster rate and becomes very big. When x increases when it is less then 0 (e.g. from –10 to –9), y increases very slowly. 2) (i) The value of a affects the value of x proportionally. For example we can compare the equations y = 1 + 2x and y = 5 + 2x. In the second equation, the value of a has been change to 5. As we can see from the results in Tables 1 and 2, all the values of y for y = 5 + 2x are greater by 4, when x is the same....   [tags: Papers]

## My Interest in Science, Math and Computers

- "Belief is the natural attitude of a thwarted mind" This quotation is from a rather outspoken mathematician named Scott Buchanan, who has studied the style of human thought right along with its mathematical accomplishments. It is meant to describe our style of thinking when approaching mathematics. Yet it seems to me that it has a larger meaning: that it applies to the human style of thought when approaching any problem. Buchanan is telling us that when we are confronted with a problem and a possible solution and we cannot find our way to the solution, we have a tendency to believe in the solution out of pure frustration, or perhaps just wishful thinking....   [tags: college admissions essay]

The ZPD is defined as "the distance between the actual developmental level as determined by independent problem solving and the level of potential development as determined through problem solving under adult guidance, or in collaboration with more capable peers" (Vygotsky, 1978, p86). The premise of this theory is that students through assistance can boost their understanding of a skill and gain mastery by first observing, receiving guidance and finally independent practice....   [tags: ZPD, Vygotsky, education, learning, student]

Synchronising nonverbal behaviour from different modalities is an important step for simulating face-to-face-interaction where all nonverbal cues are available. Such synchronisation also serves as an effective basis for building multimodal interfaces especially if these have to be deployed for multiparty communication. It is argued that common spatial reference frames are helpful in coordinating different points of attention and facilitating work by serving as the springboard for joint attention among members of the team....   [tags: Math]

## Introduction to Study Positive Expected Value

- Introduction to study positive expected value: In this topic we will discuss about study positive expected value for discrete random variable and some exam questions. Expected value is the fundamental thought in probability, in a sense more general than probability itself. The expected value of a real-valued possibility variable offers a compute of the center of the distribution of the variable. More significantly, by taking the expected value of various functions of a common random variable, we can calculate a lot of interesting features of its distribution, including spread and correlation....   [tags: Math]

## Study of Anxiety and Automation

- Automation`s implications on anxiety`s effects in solving complicated tasks Abstract The study of anxiety and automation took a great extent in the twentieth century giving basis to different theories and opinions. Current study is based on differences between anxious and non- anxious subjects on their performance in solving simple and complex tasks before and after a learning phase and automation. Current study wants to draw attention to the fact that automation diminishes the impact of anxiety on performance, especially in solving complex tasks by reducing the level of attention and the depth of conscious processing and by avoiding the sub activation of the units in the working memory...   [tags: Math]

## The Evolution of Differential Calculus

- Differential calculus is a subfield of Calculus that focuses on derivates, which are used to describe rates of change that are not constants. The term ‘differential’ comes from the process known as differentiation, which is the process of finding the derivative of a curve. Differential calculus is a major topic covered in calculus. According to Interactive Mathematics, “We use the derivative to determine the maximum and minimum values of particular functions (e.g. cost, strength, amount of material used in a building, profit, loss, etc.).” Not only are derivatives used to determine how to maximize or minimize functions, but they are also used in determining how two related variables are chan...   [tags: Math]
