Title: Solving And Checking Equations
Details: Words: 219, Pages: 1... use the distributive property to take away the
parentheses. When you use the distributive property, your equation will be 14x
88x+24=3x+31. Then you have to combine like terms. Now that you've combined,
your equation will be 6x+16=3x+31. The next step is to subtract 3x from both
sides. Now your equation will be 3x+16=31. The next step is to subtract 16
from both sides. Your equation has been reduced to 3x=15. The last step is to
divide both sides by 3 and your answer is x=5. There are also many steps needed
to check a problem. First, you rewrite the problem. Under that you write the
problem substituting all the x's with 5. Next, you evaluate the problem ...

Title: What Psychology Is To Me
Details: Words: 441, Pages: 2... This is just one of the many examples
that illustrate this point, and that makes developing a working definition of
the term psychology extremely difficult to attain.
The range of topics that are considered psychology is very surprising to
a newcomer in the field. Everything from determining which parts of the brain
are responsible for controlling certain senses to analyzing the influence of
society on behavior and development is considered “psychology”. So it is
obvious that my original definition was extremely limited, but it has now been
vastly broadened.
In addition to recognizing the broad range of topics that psychology
covers, I also realized t ...

graphics, and compress digital images. Fractals are about us, and our existence,
and they are present in every mathematical law that governs the universe. Thus,
fractal geometry can be applied to a diverse palette of subjects in life, and
science  the physical, the abstract, and the natural.
We were all astounded by the sudden revelation that the output of a
very simple, twoline generating formula does not have to be a dry and
cold abstraction. When the output was what is now called a fractal,
no one called it artificial... Fractals suddenly broadened the realm
in which und ...

Title: Uniforms In School

reducing tardiness in school that I know is a problem in my first period class.
The enforcement of uniforms will relieve the tension between the new
students and the students that are already there. The uniforms will expedite
the process of making new friends for the new student since the uniforms will
help the new student feel a sense of "belonging". This helps the majority of
the school becoming friends with each other. This obviously helps the class
and also the school as a whole, as there will be less fights and controversy
between students.
Uniforms will build a sense of unity within the school. The stu ...

Title: Schools Uniforms

not make fun of the students who do not know how to dress up or student who
just wear weird clothing. Some students who may feel this really upsetting
because they want to look different everyday except wearing the same
uniform everyday.
School is a place where kids come to learn and educate themselves.
So, there is no use for students to come to school wearing brand clothing
or some other weird style. Students should concentrate on their studies
more then looking who is wearing what kind of clothing. Wearing unifoms
will make them take pride in themselves because the uniforms itself
encourge the students to join the school and makes it a safe environment. ...

they understand. This is the core principle of Outcomes Based Education (OBE).

Title: The Neccessity Of School Attendance
Details: Words: 667, Pages: 3... decides when students have to go to school? WHo decides when students shouldn't have to go to school? This is a question in which I personally have a lot of difficulty with. Why does the board of education and the federal government get to decide when and where students should attend. Why don't the students get some sort of say on those issues? I felllike I should be able to have a vote on when we should get our breaks and when school should start and end. In the real world you are able to make a decision like that. I feel like there should be more consideration given to the students and than maybe there would be not as many problems in the school systems ...

Title: Schools: Comparison Between Canada And Taiwan Schools
Details: Words: 659, Pages: 3... averages are low,
they can still go to universities that don't require high averages. Therefore,
many students can easily study in this highest level of education. However, all
