Sustainability Problems

The MTH/209 Week Five Learning Team assignment requires each team to select a scenario and explain how algebraic concepts underlie sustainable environmental, business, or human health practices.

Concept of Sustainability

Sustainability may broadly be defined as the ability of any system to sustain itself. Sustainability principles can apply to many areas, including human health, finances, and the environment. The following are details about how sustainability may be applied to environmental science, business, and human health practices for the purposes of this assignment:

• Health practices focus on the ability of a human body to sustain itself. Such things as the intake of food versus the output of energy are part of this equilibrium. Current medical knowledge and practices of the health care industry also play into the equilibrium and health of people’s bodies. The word sustainability could be used as another word for equilibrium.

If you choose this scenario, here is a list of problems from the text that address health sustainability. You can refer to this list for ideas for your presentation. Vary your selections so that each problem addresses a different math concept.

...say whether I was able to learn how to be a better teacher and what the teacher did that I could possibly use in the future. While analyzing and going through the process of this assignment it is helping realize how to become a better teacher as well. I would also like to get more comfortable and experience on using this template of the paper. Memories Of A Teacher My teacher, Mr. G, used many different instructional techniques and approaches to his lessons. Mr. G had taught me math for three years in a row, so I think that I have a good grasp on his approaches to the lessons that he would teach. He would assign many homework assignments, as well as in-class assignments, which helped me and other students understand and get practice with the lesson that we were learning. I think that with math having a lot of homework is a good thing. In my mind, the only way to learn how to do math is plenty of practice. The more you practice, the easier it will be. Mr. G would also have the students do some math problems on the chalk board or smart board to show the class and go over the corrections with the whole class so that everyone would understand the problem. Playing “racing” games also helped and added fun to the class. With the “racing” games, the students would get into groups and have to take turns doing problems on the chalk board and see who could get the correct answer first. It added fun and a little friendly competition to the class. It also helped the students want to......

...relates to mathematics. Doctors have to know how to use the metric system when weighing or taking the height of patients. They mainly have to know pounds and kilograms. Doctors write many prescriptions everyday so they have to know what to give to patients mainly depending on their weight. For example, when prescribing an antibiotic called amoxicillin it is 45mg/kg twice a day so if a child weighs twenty two pounds they will take 225mg of amoxicillin twice a day for however many days the doctor thinks it is necessary. Doctors also have to know how to use math to determine how much of an IV to give the patient. Knowing the body mass index formula helps them to determine if their patients are overweight or underweight so that they can help them and give them directions on how to solve that. There are many people who think of becoming a doctor but do not realize that hardships it takes to get there and all the hard work they have to go through in the process. “There are some who do have a strong determination of entering the medical field, but after knowing about the studies, practicalities, and responsibilities in the medical field, they prefer to take their step...

...Diana Garza 1-16-12 Reflection The ideas Stein presents on problem saving and just math in general are that everyone has a different way of saving their own math problems. For explains when you’re doing a math problem you submit all kinds of different numbers into a data or formula till something works or maybe it’s impossible to come up with a solution. For math in general he talks about how math is so big and its due in large measure to the wide variety of situations how it can sit for a long time without being unexamined. Waiting for someone comes along to find a totally unexpected use for it. Just like has work he couldn’t figure it out and someone else found a use for it and now everyone uses it for their banking account. For myself this made me think about how math isn’t always going to have a solution. To any math problem I come across have to come with a clear mind and ready to understand it carefully. If I don’t understand or having hard time taking a small break will help a lot. The guidelines for problem solving will help me a lot to take it step by step instead of trying to do it all at once. Just like the introduction said the impossible takes forever. The things that surprised me are that I didn’t realize how much math can be used in music and how someone who was trying to find something else came to the discovery that he find toe. What may people were trying to find before Feynmsn....

...geometry, your opinion may vary. This class introduces a lot of new topics, which can be challenging, and take lots of practice outside of school if you do not pay attention or do your math homework. I strongly advise you to do your math homework everyday, not for just a grade, but it also helps you when it comes time for quizzes and tests. She rarely checks homework, but when she does, she will not tell you. It is also a great review for tests and quizzes. Ms.Hull’s tests and quizzes are not the easiest things you will take. The quizzes take new concepts and apply to the quiz. Also, her tests are usually always hard. It is a good idea to practice new concepts and review old ones from previous units, so you can get a good grade on the tests. I also advise you to be organized throughout the year. Organization is the key to success especially in math class. Tool kits are an extremely helpful resource to use. There are going to be a lot of conjectures and theorems that will be new, and it would be hard to just memorize them. My overall geometry year was not exactly the way I hoped it would turn out. It was extremely had, and it moves at a very quick pace, so keeping up was hard for me personally. If I could have done something differently, it would have been practicing math more often. Each concept was hard, and I did not have anytime to review it, because I have a lot of honors classes which require a lot of work too. The key to being successful in this course is to......

...marriages, where the responsibility of choosing the right person is up to the parents. During an arranged marriage when the two unknown individuals come together, they don't have any expectations from each other since they both really don’t know each other and what each is capable of doing. So since they really don’t know each other getting to know and understand each other can take a long period of time, during this period they must learn to compromise and accept each other as they are. The difference in a love marriage is there are higher expectations from both the man and women. Since the two already know each other and know what each other are capable of so circumstances and responsibilities can change after marriage. Many couples find it hard to adapt to the changing situation and expect things to go as smoothly as it was before marriage. This is one of the main reasons that divorces occur in loved marriages because more is expected out of each other and some people aren’t willing to give it more. Even though, surviving an arranged marriage is tougher then love marriages, the two individuals can easily get through tough times if they have real faith and love in each other, if the two are well aware about the qualities and love of each other they have. Which can easily predict and control the behavior for future situations that may occur. In arranged marriages these advantages of knowing each other’s qualities and true feelings are missing, most of the times when they......

...charged high fees for the showing of films in theaters (Warner & Jennings 1965). The patent caused the Warner bros to sell their theaters and focus solely on the making of films and distributing (Cass Warner Sperling, 2008). The company grew to become one of the biggest and most influential motion picture studios in the world. 2.2 Introduction to theme A leader possesses multiple attributes either when dealing with a multinational company or a small managing company however there is one characteristic which described all of the brothers; being goal oriented regardless of the method of getting there. As there are four brothers, this report will discuss the personal attributes, functions and relationships of mainly Jack Warner and Sam Warner as they were the key figures. The reason for these themes is due to the fact that they have encountered a lot of obstacles, such as anti-Semitism, heavy competition and tension among each other, which they have solved in their own very personal aggressive manner which other leaders might have solved differently. Family businesses can either work extremely well or cause a lot of friction, therefore the report will commence with the startup of the company and conclude with their ultimate downfall as a family business and yet extremely successful multinational company. 2.3 Personal Attributes, Function & Relationship linked to The Warner Bros. 2.3.1 Functions There were three big studios active that had a monopoly in the motion......

...This article is about the study of topics, such as quantity and structure. For other uses, see Mathematics (disambiguation). "Math" redirects here. For other uses, see Math (disambiguation). Euclid (holding calipers), Greek mathematician, 3rd century BC, as imagined by Raphael in this detail from The School of Athens.[1] Mathematics is the study of topics such as quantity (numbers),[2] structure,[3] space,[2] and change.[4][5][6] There is a range of views among mathematicians and philosophers as to the exact scope and definition of mathematics.[7][8] Mathematicians seek out patterns[9][10] and use them to formulate new conjectures. Mathematicians resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proof. When mathematical structures are good models of real phenomena, then mathematical reasoning can provide insight or predictions about nature. Through the use of abstraction and logic, mathematics developed from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Practical mathematics has been a human activity for as far back as written records exist. The research required to solve mathematical problems can take years or even centuries of sustained inquiry. Rigorous arguments first appeared in Greek mathematics, most notably in Euclid's Elements. Since the pioneering work of Giuseppe Peano (1858–1932), David Hilbert (1862–1943), and others on axiomatic systems in the late 19th century, it has become......

Bros Before Hos

...“Bros before Hos” Kimmel exposes many believes in which society tries to establish how boys have to behave during their childhood and youth to prove that they are masculine during their adult life’s in his “Bros Before Hos” article. He states that boys have been raised to abide by certain codes, for example, “Boys don’t cry” or “Taking it like a man” to be fully functional male adults. He also states that when men try to deter from the “code” they are automatically labeled as weak or turning their backs on their own kind. Although I agree with many of the points he makes, I will have to disagree when he implies that not much has changed in the aspect of men standing up for themselves or being themselves in fear of being out casted. I do agree 100% with his opinion when he states that the weak men need to speak up because that is the only way the male aggressors will stop being bullies and society would be a better place as a whole because as long as the silence remains unbroken nothing will ever change. Way before a boy is born they are already being molded to be men. As early as being in their mothers’ womb males are being taught to be masculine. Fathers are dreaming of their boys being athletes’ way before they are born. Baby showers don’t have hints of pink, instead, it is filled with blue and anything “male” related because pink represent femininity and weakness. Personally, I can’t comprehend why society choses blue to be the male dominant color. I would have......

...can see how to split up the original equation into its factor pair, this is the quickest and allows you to solve the problem in one step. Week 9 capstone part 1 Has the content in this course allowed you to think of math as a useful tool? If so, how? What concepts investigated in this course can apply to your personal and professional life? In the course, I have learned about polynomials, rational expressions, radical equations, and quadratic equations. Quadratic equations seem to have the most real life applications -- in things such as ticket sales, bike repairs, and modeling. Rational expressions are also important, if I know how long it takes me to clean my sons room, and know how long it takes him to clean his own room. I can use rational expressions to determine how long it will take the two of us working together to clean his room. The Math lab site was useful in some ways, since it allowed me to check my answers to the problems immediately. However, especially in math 117, it was too sensitive to formatting of the equations and answers. I sometimes put an answer into the math lab that I knew was right, but it marked it wrong because of the math lab expecting slightly different formatting Week 9 capstone part 2 I really didn't use center for math excellence because i found that MML was more convenient for me. I think that MML reassures you that you’re doing the problem correctly. MML is extra support because it carefully walks you through the problem visually......

...and solve problems in everyday life”. In my everyday life I have to keep the balance in my check book, pay bills, take care of kids, run my house, cook, clean etc. With cooking I am using math, measuring how much food to make for four people (I still haven’t mastered that one). With bills I am using math, how much each company gets, to how much money I have to spare (which these days is not much). In my everyday life I do use some form of a math. It might not be how I was taught, but I have learned to adapt to my surroundings and do math how I know it be used, the basic ways, none of that fancy stuff. For my weakest ability I would say I fall into “Confidence with Mathematics”. Math has never been one of my favorite subjects to learn. It is like my brain knows I have to learn it, but it puts up a wall and doesn’t allow the information to stay in there. The handout “The Case for Quantitative Literacy” states I should be at ease with applying quantitative methods, and comfortable with quantitative ideas. To be honest this class scares the crap out of me, and I am worried I won’t do well in this class. The handout also says confidence is the opposite of “Math Anxiety”, well I can assure you I have plenty of anxiety right now with this class. I have never been a confident person with math, I guess I doubt my abilities, because once I get over my fears and anxiety I do fine. I just have to mentally get myself there and usually it’s towards the end of the class. There are......

Hard Work

...Aldana, Andres Mr. Savard English 28 July 16, 2014 Hard Work Learning was never an easy thing for me do growing up. It was as if my head was stuck in the clouds, dreaming of anything and everything and when someone said something to me it went in one ear and out the other. I found myself in bad times, by being afraid of my own work Throughout the years I learned what being a student was about by the influence of my peers, I had to start fresh by gained learning experiences that helped me in education. My style of learning is inspired by the coaches and teachers who helped me shape who I am today. Growing up was something that I remember best especially third grade, I think this when I had my first reality check also. I didn’t know what was going on at the time the teacher use of high vocabulary seemed like another language so I never did pay any attention. Soon I found myself in a few parent conferences. Soon after the conferences I was being held back. It was like someone was telling me I was not good enough to be with the same crowd. Walking down the halls of the school I thought that everyone was staring and laughing at me and the once easily spoken child was a speechless shell of a human being. It wasn’t until one of my old teachers noticed that I didn’t talk as much as I used to, she came over and asked me what was wrong so I told her, what happened and how I felt. She then put her hand on my shoulder and then told me something I would never......
