  • Thin Red Line
    750 words
    I recently watched The Thin Red Line. Not the new, 1998 version however; accidentally picked up the 1964 black and white picture. The story line and plot going on in the movie is very hard to understand, and I read very different from the book The Thin Red Line, but I got the main gist of it. The main character in the movie is a very young solider and the sergeant of the company they are in. The movie starts off on a naval ship and the sergeant is yelling at the solider because he needs to finis...
  • Divisible Into An Infinite Number Of Points
    831 words
    There is only one being, continuous, material, and motionless. Let's take a moment to examine a number line. 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 It's pretty simple to understand. The line represents a distance, and the'|' characters symbolize different points on the line-the exact points are differentiated by the number below them. Any number line is understood to have contain points which aren't necessarily designated by a number. For example, on the above number line we know that between ...
  • Stephanie's Teacher
    341 words
    When I arrived at the Mountain View Elementary school today, I never imagined it would be my most challenging day yet. Stephanie was indeed a very special young girl, but in more ways than one. Stephanie's teacher had informed me that the little girl was diagnosed with a learning disability, and although she was in the 3rd grade, she worked on a kindergarten level. My task for the day was helping Stephanie with two digit subtraction. I tried every way imaginable to get this child to understand, ...
  • Lower Extreme Of Your Data
    458 words
    A box and whisker plot looks complicated, but it's really not. I used my veggie data to create the one illustrated below. Follow the steps below to make your own box and whisker plot. Take your data that is in order from least to greatest. (Like you used in the mean, mode, median, range and stem and leaf pages.) My numbers: 1, 5, 7, 8, 8, 14, 17. Next, divide them up (while in order) into half. For example: 1, 5, 7, 8 and 8, 8, 14, 17. (Notice, that I had an odd number of data, 7, that can't be ...
  • Equations In Greek Algebra
    1,212 words
    Overview The word algebra came from an Arabic expression, al-jar wa'l muqabala, which was the title of the first Arabic text on algebra. Al-Khwarizmi wrote the book in the ninth century A.D. According to Al-Khwarizmi, algebra was " the art of reducing and solving equations" (van der Waerden 70). From the very beginning of its introduction, algebra was influenced by geometry. For example, the Babylonians view unknown quantities as lengths and widths and their products as areas. The product of two...
  • Experimenter Spread Out The Yellow Counters
    2,037 words
    Abstract This investigation explores whether the children have developed their perception skills by classifying them as non conservers or conservers. Using counters in one row which are brought closer together to form a cluster it shows that in a five year old the visual impression of a long row of counters overrides the numeral equality that was obvious when the counters appeared in matching rows - non conservers (1). For seven year olds numerical equality is more significant than visual impres...
  • Visible Spectra Lines Of Gaseous Atoms
    1,050 words
    Abstract Spectroscopy is a leading technique in studying internal constitution, structure, and isotope shift of atoms, ions, and molecules. Atoms and ions usually do emit light when exposed to high amounts of heat which makes such spectra lines visible under spectroscope, clearly showing differences between various energy levels present in an atom. The aim of the experiment was to document spectroscope design and how such can be used to observe visible spectra lines of gaseous atoms namely the n...
  • Traditional Ballad Stanza
    569 words
    Has the ancient tradition of ballads fallen prey to today's modern society? One might think so. The truth, however, is the opposite. Ballads have thrived throughout many centuries and have influenced many types of music. Punk, Ska, and Hardcore bands such as Operation Ivy, Less Than Jake, H 2 O and All have capitalized on ballads as a form of lyrical expression. One such song, ? Numbered Days? , a Mighty Mighty Bosstones song, written and composed by Dicky Barrett and Nate Albert, is a prime exa...
