Mathematics...and therefore, it is important to realize as what is it that is integrated or summed up. It is essentially the product of the dependent variable (y) and infinitesimally small increment in the independent variable or ?x which is continuously summed up. If we know from which point to which point this summation is to be done, then we get a definite answer and this integral is known as definite integral. **Mathematically** it is expressed by indicating the limits or boundaries of integration as shown below. This is a definite integral with integration being carried out between ‘a’ and ‘b’ (a < b) for y, which is a function of x. This definite integral gives many useful parameters like area under curve, area of a curved surface,...

Childrens Literature...?Live, Learn and Pass it on Abraham Lincoln once said, “The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read. “ It is true that whether you are a kid or an adult, books would offer you a window of knowledge, imagination, wisdom and learning, much more you could attain from any life being.

Mathematics...of these variations have led to a **Mathematics** Subject Classification 11P05 entitled “Waring’s Problem and variants.”
The Goldbach Conjecture
In 1742, Goldbach suggested that every integer greater than 2 could be written as the sum of 3 primes. However, Goldbach considered the number 1 to be prime, Euler reformulated Goldbach’s statement to propose that: all even integers greater than 2 can be written as the sum of 2 primes, and this is now known as the Goldbach Conjecture. This paper explores the progress that has been made towards the proof of this conjecture to date.
The above statement is the strong/even/binary conjecture. The weak/odd/tertiary conjecture is an implication of the above, and is as follows: all odd...

Misconceptions in Science...the voids, changing the density of the overall structure. The cardboard would become waterlogged and sink.
A marble would sink because the density of the marble relative to the amount of displaced water would be too great. The surface area of the marble and the surface tension of the water would not create a ratio conducive to buoyancy.
An orange is able to float because the orange rind is a low-density material. The makeup of an orange rind provides buoyancy for the orange. It is interesting to note that if an orange is pealed from the rind and placed in a bucket of water, it will not flood because the removal of the orange rind has altered the overall density of the object.
One common **misconception**...

Mathematics...1. An instance in my daily life where I rely on the skills of rounding and estimating is when I do the grocery shopping. In order to get a fair estimate of what my bill is up to, I roughly calculate the value of each shopping item by rounding to the closest whole number. An occupation such as a shop teller would need to have sound multiplication and division skills because their job requires them to give and receive the right amount of change.
2. The concept of negative numbers is harder to grasp because there cannot be anything less than nothing, which is what zero is. An example of where it is important to understand integers in the financial world is with banking (Glydon). If someone spends more than they have available... An instance in...
