As Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. With that being said, it is proven fact that smaller classroom sizes are the most beneficial to our children and their education. According to the National Education Association, students who are placed in smaller classes early in their school careers are likely to sustain educational success. Students participate in classes. They feel more comfortable asking and answering questions. They build relationships and camaraderie and feel part of the group; therefore, students don’t want to miss out. Surveys show that students who are part of smaller classes receive better grades then students in larger classes. Most importantly, there are fewer dropouts and fewer students repeating grades. Reduced class sizes provide an opportunity for educators to do more at the classroom level. They open doors that allow teachers to be more effective. Teachers can introduce more material and the curriculum can provide students with depth and a variety of learning. They can change their teaching style, cover material faster, and provide hands-on activities and projects. Teachers can also provide quick feedback to students in smaller classrooms. In smaller classrooms, there is much less frustration and anxiety for both the teacher and the student. This creates a comfortable environment and positive attitudes. Teachers are also much more equipped to manage the smaller class sizes and cope with behavioral issues more effectively. Parents also feel more comfortable volunteering at schools with smaller enrollment. Parents claim that these schools have more of a family-like environment rather than a building full of strangers. They feel it is comforting to know that their children are good hands while in school. The benefits of having a child in a smaller…

In this experiment I studied many parts of evolution by studying small populations of finches (a seed eating songbird that typically has a stout bill and colorful plumage) on Darwin and Wallace Island. I also followed their changes over the next 100 years. Changes included beak size, population numbers, heritability, clutch size, etc. Evolution is all about change. For me to completely understand how evolution works I needed to see it in action…
that the system can match with its own rate of replacement or maintenance.
How does MSY work?
b. At low population size the rate of population growth will increase because the environmental resistance factors are low.
c. The rate of population growth will increase until environmental resistance factors begin to limit population size. This point is MSY.
d. As the population size becomes larger than the MSY, the rate of population growth decreases, because the environment cannot sustain the numbers…
The Small Study Group
I remember I am in a small study group one time to study math notes with my classmates before the exam. We have four girls in the small study group, and we are all from the same math professor’s class. As for the definition of the small group communication, I think the reason that four of us gather together is we hope to review for our math exam better with the helps from each group member. In order to accomplish our task, there are some obvious features about small group…
Crash! A severe thunderstorm warning was issued 10 minutes ago. Hail the of size golf balls are smashing on top of your car. Do you keep going or stop and wait for that unexpected tornado to hit?
Good afternoon, teacher and fellow students. I'm here to talk to you about tornados. A tornado is a very violent windstorm, a monstrous, spinning, dark funnel hanging from a thundercloud. The funnel consists of whirling winds at the speed of 300 miles per hour or faster. It is however difficult to measure…
Based on the documentary 'Super Size Me', the main issue that is revolving around the entire film is 'Obesity'. Apparently, the film does not only concentrate on discussing that particular topic; it also manipulates the symbolic, audio and technical codes by using the conventions of animation, dialogue and close-up shots. This smart technique is mainly used in changing our beliefs towards the main problem and to also convince us to support the director's point of view, in this case,…

“Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.”
I was born in Nigeria, Africa, one of the most populated countries in the world with such a small geographical size. I didn’t move to the U.S until I was around 5, so I am still able to remember how life was in Nigeria, and also importantly how the education system was. School life back home was good. Morning assembly, classes, lunch, more classes and finally the long walk home…

2. Find the sample size needed for a confidence interval for the population proportion; margin of error = .005, confidence level = .98.
3. Create a 90% confidence interval for population mean; sample mean = 2.21, population standard deviation = 0.72, sample size = 32.
4. Test the claim that the population mean is not 65 at the 5% significance level. A sample of 114 had a mean of 68 and standard deviation 13.
5. Find the sample size needed for a confidence interval for the population…
Does children's shoe sizes get bigger as they get older?
I will be doing an experiment to investigate whether it is true or not that children's shoes sizes really increase as they get older. In order for me to prove this, I need to collect some data and to start with, I have to create a simple and short questionnaire and I will ask some of my friends and family who has children and could help me with this experiment by completing the questionnaire. My objective is to find out…
