A more human approach to processing raw data could change the way that computers deal with information, according to academics at The University of Nottingham. Researchers in the School of Computer Science at the University's Malaysia Campus are exploring "Ëœgranular computing' "” a computer paradigm that looks at groups or sets of information, called information granules, rather than the high level of detail at which data is currently processed. By looking at data in this...

By JANESE HEAVIN Amy Surdin uses math every day in her accounting job to balance payroll and help restaurants do sales tax returns. But even with her hands-on skills, she couldn't help her sixth- grade son with his school homework. "I cannot understand why they can't do long multiplication or division to get answers," she said. "This works, and drawing out boxes of blocks or estimating generally then narrowing down the answer do not seem to be good means of mathematics." Surdin was...

By JANESE HEAVIN A document outlining what students should be learning in Columbia's elementary math classes is headed to the Board of Education this week, but some are urging members to delay approving those objectives. "I'm concerned they're rushing this through," parent Michelle Pruitt said. "Why not wait a month or three weeks until the October board meeting?" The "learning objectives" is a list of skills students should master at each grade level, including what students should be...
