SAN JOSE, Calif. _ 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 the University of California-Berkeley and...

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...

To: TECHNOLOGY EDITORS Contact: Dan Keedy of Michigan Virtual University, _+1-517-664- 5460, dkeedy@mivu.org LANSING, Mich., July 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Whens the last time your middle school student was working on a math or science assignment until late in the evening -- in the summer? Or said I learned and learned so when I took the post-test I knew everything, as one student said last summer? That level of involvement and skill acquisition are becoming the norm for students...

U.S. physicists say the odd behavior of a molecule in an experimental silicon chip may lead to the possibility of achieving quantum computing in semiconductors. Purdue University researchers say they've created a hybrid molecule in which its quantum state can be intentionally manipulated -- a required step in the building of quantum computers. Up to now large-scale quantum computing has been a dream, said Professor Gerhard Klimeck, who is also associate director for technology for the...

By Ackerman, Robert K The crystal ball is cloudy when it comes to the nature of future chips. Scientists are racing against the clock to develop a means of defeating an enemy that threatens to stop computer technology progress dead in its tracks. The threat is not terrorism; it is Moore's Law, as complementary metal oxide semiconductors are nearing their size and performance limits as defined by the laws of physics. Many computer experts have been predicting since the last millennium that...

When a tiny, quantum-scale, hypothetical balloon is popped in a vacuum, do the particles inside spread out all over the place as predicted by classical mechanics?The question is deceptively complex, since quantum particles do not look or act like air molecules in a real balloon. Matter at the infinitesimally small quantum scale is both a wave and a particle, and its location cannot be fixed precisely because measurement alters the system.Now, theoretical physicists at the University of...

COLUMBUS , Ohio -- Most teachers believe that students learn better when abstract concepts are taught using concrete materials or examples -- but a new study suggests they may be wrong. Researchers found that when college students were taught an artificial form of mathematics and physics, they learned it better when it was presented using simple, abstract symbols "“ such as plain stars and raindrops -- rather than more visually engaging and concrete 3-D objects that moved...

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...
