College Math Math Problem...**Math** Problem a) I constructed the first linear function based on the municipal solid waste data for 1970 and 1997 and the second linear function based on the data for 1980 and 1997. A dependent variable is the annual production of municipal solid waste in million tons. An independent variable is the number of years after 1960.
Based on the municipal solid waste data from the graph, I received such numbers for independent and dependent variables for the models.

Introduction
The task of improving students' achievement in mathematics was clearly determined as one of the national priorities in the field of education (Goals 2000: Educate America Act). Such attention to this subject is probably due to the traditional perception of mathematics as the most important doorkeeper to a variety of educational and occupational opportunities (Maccini & Gagnon, 2000). This perception remains dominant these days with increasing numbers of educational institutions including additional **math**...

Math...Derivatives of sine functions Investigate the derivative of the function Figure Graph of function and for Figure shows the graph of function (red curve) and it derivative (gradient) (green curve). From graph it can be seen that the gradient of the function behaves similarly as original function, however it shifts left side by (or shift right side by).
= or
From above, it is obvious that the graphs of the sine and it derivative cosine functions are sinusoids of different phases1. The derivative is also a sine function with a phase-shift of (or).
Conjecture: The graphs of the sine function, and its derivative cosine function, are sinusoids of different phases i.e. the derivative is also a sine function with a phase-shift... of sine...

A. What kind of correlation do you expect to find between annual income and amount spent on car? Will it be positive or negative? Will it be a strong relationship? Base your answer on your personal guess as well as by looking through the data.
The two variables, annual income and amount spent on car are expected to have a positive correlation. The main reason is that when the income is higher, people tend to spend more on their cars. Moreover, the relationship between the two variables is expected to be strong.
Based on the data given, it is evident that the annual income and the amount spent on car are directly proportional to one... XXXXX Number:...

Math and the paraprofessional teaching fractions...**Maths** and the paraprofessional **teaching** fraction xxxxx School: xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx Due xxxxxx Introduction In fractions, models are used because of a number of reasons. However, the most important is that it helps to give the concept of fraction as a number (Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, 2009). Different models are used to make a clear understanding of the concept among the students. As few young ones are unable to grasp a certain concept or idea, therefore through other means, the concept can be embedded in their minds in a better way. Hence, they can have a long-term understanding of fractions.
In order to develop deep understanding of fractions, there are some concrete...

Math...Question/Answers Explain **Teaching** of Numeration, introduction to Arithmetic, , Auto Education, Sensitive Periods and Absorbent mind The basics of concepts such as numeration or counting are already known to children at the age of three. For example, three buttons, two cups and one more plate. Montessori education develops introductory concepts of arithmetic, such as understanding of numbers in relation to each other, and to other concepts such as shape and size of objects.
Auto-Education refers to the child’s ability to construct ideas and concepts on his own by refining his senses through observation. For example, skip-counting and base ten operations are learned through constructing objects and observing them in...
