Why Do We Use Mathematical Theorems?

March 17, 2012 at 12:31 am, by

For our final milestone in disease class, we wrote a paper based on why do we use mathematical theorems to understand diseases. We had to give two reasons why this Equation, R= L/A, help us understand diseases and how it can help solve the united nations millennium development goals. The equation R= L /A is Read More…

Why do we use mathematical theorems for disease?

For my disease class, I performed a rap presentation that depicts why we use use math to help solve diseases. I also used this rap to help explain how these theorems connect to the U.S Government’s 8 millenium development goals. These goals include topics such as child mortality, hunger, and disease. Please look at my Read More…

For our final presentation in the disease class, our goal was to recap on what we have done through the past trimester.  Below is my report on what I’ve done. The goal of our disease class is to bring math and science together to understand more about diseases and how they work.  In the first trimester Read More…

Why models help understand diseases?

March 13, 2012 at 7:51 pm, by

In my disease class, we studied an equation which was R=L/A.  R is the basic reproduction number, L is  average life span of population, and A is average age of infection. A connection between the equation is as R gets smaller the number of A is increasing or the amount of L gets smaller. As Read More…

How can mathematical problems help solve the millennium goals?

Below is my report and presentation for my disease class regarding how the mathematical problem, (R=L/A) can help the United Nations millennium goals. In 2,000 the United Nations agreed to achieve eight goals in the world from killing diseases to lowering the mortality rate for kids. There are way ways to do these goals and one way Read More…

Why do we use math to model diseases?

In my disease class, we were working to discover why we use the math equation R=L/A to solve diseases. Here is my prezi presentation below to explain why.   R=L/A on Prezi

Wiki Leaks Vs The Banks

March 13, 2012 at 5:31 pm, by

For our Forbidden books class Milestone 3 we worked with a Wiki Leaks case. My case was the Banking Blockade. The one word that explains my case is perseverance.
