By Natalie Angier You are shopping in a busy supermarket and you're ready to pay up and go home. You perform a quick visual sweep of the checkout options and immediately start ramming your cart through traffic toward an appealingly unpeopled line halfway across the store. As you wait in line and start reading nutrition labels, you can't help but calculate that the 529 calories contained in a single slice of your Key lime cheesecake amounts to one-fourth of your recommended daily caloric...

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...

By JANESE HEAVIN Columbia Public Schools' chief academic officer said the district is ready to compromise with the community when it comes to elementary math. But Sally Beth Lyon, who oversees district curricula, stopped short of saying concepts-based math would be replaced by a more traditional program. "We're going to figure out how to get something done so we can all move forward," she told the Tribune. "We're still at the table and will discuss the best way to move forward and include...

By Andrea Bennett Staff Writer ONTARIO - Upland resident Mat Holton, 40, started as the superintendent of Chaffey Joint Union High School District in July, after former Superintendent Barry Cadwallader retired. The father of three graduated from the district himself when Upland High School was still a part of it. Holton has been busily preparing for the new school year, which is just around the corner, and he shared a bit about himself, his thoughts on education and his plans for...

By LIBBY QUAID WASHINGTON -- Sixteen years after Barbie dolls declared, "Math class is tough!", girls are proving that when it comes to math they are just as tough as boys. In the largest study of its kind, girls measured up to boys in every grade, from second through 11th. The research was released Thursday in the journal Science. Parents and teachers persist in thinking that boys are simply better at math, said Janet Hyde, the University of Wisconsin- Madison researcher who led...

By Lori Higgins, Detroit Free Press Jul. 28--The math teacher walked back and forth in the middle of the U-shaped group of tables, often leaning down to talk to students who needed help or sending students to the front of the room to demonstrate their work for others. "Fractions are one of the most important parts of math that can help you do well in middle school and high school," Deborah Loewenberg Ball told the two dozen students seated before her as they embarked on a lesson about...

From wire reports The notion that boys are better at math simply doesn't add up, according to a study to be published today in the journal Science. An analysis of standardized test scores from more than 7.2 million U.S. students in grades two through 11 found no difference in math scores for girls and boys, contradicting a pervasive belief that most females aren't hard-wired for careers in science and technology. The study also undermined the assumption - espoused by former Harvard...

By Lisa M. Krieger San Jose Mercury News SAN JOSE, Calif. (MCT) -- A new study puts to rest one of the most widespread myths about boys' and girls' aptitude in math. After analyzing 7 million test scores, researchers found no difference. The findings demonstrate great strides since the 1970s when major studies showed pronounced differences in the scores of males and females. By the 1980s, younger students were matched -- but girls fell behind when they hit adolescence. Study authors at...

CHICAGO _ Desiree Epps-Davis, 14, says she struggles every day to convince some teachers at her Chicago public school that she is just as good at math as the boys in her class. Now, a major new study has proved her right. Researchers comparing the math scores of seven million students nationwide from 2005 to last year found that girls and boys do equally well on math tests they have taken between the second and 11th grades. While previous studies have come to a similar conclusion, a new...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
