My book was geared toward a 3rd grade level. According to the TEKS 3rd grade geometry and measurement: the student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional geometric figures to develop generalizations about their properties.

The first math problem in the book is one of probability. What are the “odds” that 3 children can get two bedrooms clean in 1 hour? This would be an experimental probability problem because I am conducting an “experiment”. However, I’ve conducted this experiment more than once in the past and it has turned out unfavorable. But for the sake of the book, let’s say that the odds of 3 children, getting 2 rooms clean in 1 hour is 3:2. TEKS 111.5. Grade 3, 5A states, The student is expected to use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution.

I used a pie chart to solve the next statistics problem. There are 6 articles of clothing on the floor and 3 pairs of shoes (which count as one article each). So total, there are 10 articles of clothing. How many are shirts, how many shorts, and how many shoes? There are 3 shirts, 3 shorts and 3 pairs of shoes, and 1 hat. What percentage of each article of clothing that is on the floor? 30% of the clothing is shirts, 30% is shorts, 30% is shoes, and 10% is the hat! TEKS 111.5 Grade 3, 5D states: The student is expected to communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate.

The next problem deals with lines of symmetry. The girls have twin sized beds equal distance apart. If there beds are made exactly alike, could you draw a line of symmetry? Where would the line of symmetry be drawn? Right down the middle of the lamp sitting...

...different weight ranges, which limit their use. Because of variability of these tables, BMI has become the measurement of choice for many doctors and researchers. BMI is calculated using a mathematical formula that accounts for a person’s height and weight. BMI is equal to a person’s weight in kilograms (kg) divided by height in meters squared (BMI=).
Aim
The aim of this project work is to investigate the relationship between height, weight and BMI with students’ health condition. The purpose of this campaign is to create awareness among students about obesity or underweight related to health problems. We should select an appropriate balanced diet to avoid from being a victim to such illness. Nutritional guidelines play an important role in helping us to make informed choices about our nutrient intake. The foods that constitute a balanced diet should contain the major nutrients which include carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, as well as vitamins, minerals, water and dietary fibre. A balanced diet is essential for the healthy growth and development of the body.
The objectives of carrying out this project work are:
1 To collect data on the heights and weights of students.
2 To calculate BMI of each students.
3 To represent data using various methods.
4 To relate students’ knowledge with the data obtained.
5 To suggest ways to practice healthy lifestyle.
The methods of research are as follows:
1 To obtain the height, weight and BMI...

ANALYSIS
Physics has a lot of topics to cover. In the previous experiments, we discussed Forces, Kinematics, and Motions. In this experiment, the focus is all about Friction. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction like fluid friction which describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other; dry friction which resists relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact and is subdivided into static friction between non-moving surfaces, and kinetic friction between moving surfaces; lubricated friction which is a case of fluid friction where a fluid separates two solid surfaces; skin friction which is a component of drag, the force resisting the motion of a fluid across the surface of a body; internal friction is the force resisting motion between the elements making up a solid material while it undergoes deformation and sliding friction.
When surfaces in contact move relative to each other, the friction between the two surfaces converts kinetic energy into heat. This property can have dramatic consequences, as illustrated by the use of friction created by rubbing pieces of wood together to start a fire. Kinetic energy is converted to heat whenever motion with friction occurs, for example when a viscous fluid is stirred. Another important consequence of many types of friction can be wear,...

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also be communicated to the offeree before it is being accepted. In addition, the acceptance has to be unqualified, unconditional and made by a positive act. In the case of Beauty and Stylish, a positive act refers to the signing of the contract. All terms of the offer must be accepted without any changes and cannot be subjected to any condition, taking effect only upon fulfillment of that condition. When Beauty and Stylish enter into the agreement, they must intend to bind and bound legally to each other by their agreement. This is the intention to create legal relations between two parties. In the meanwhile, this contract must possess consideration. A contract must therefore be a two-sided affair, with each side providing or promising to provide something of value in exchange for what the other is to provide.
Every contract, whether oral or written, contain terms. The terms of a contract set out the rights and duties of the parties. Terms are the promises and undertakings given by each...

Introduction
Circles are geometric figures whose points all lie the same distance from a given point, the circle's center. They are not polygons, because they are not made up of segments. Points that lie in the same line, like those in a segment, are never equidistant (an equal distance) from a single point. A circle is a simple shape of Euclidean geometry consisting of those points in a plane which are the same distance from a given point called the centre. The common distance of the points of a circle from its center is called its radius. Circles are simple closed curves which divide the plane into two regions, an interior and an exterior. In everyday use, the term "circle" may be used interchangeably to refer to either the boundary of the figure (known as the perimeter) or to...

Four Decades of the Defence of
Australia: Reflections on Australian
Defence Policy over the Past 40 Years
Hugh White
The serious academic study of Australian defence policy can be said to have
begun with the publication of a book by the SDSC’s founder, Tom Millar, in
1965. The dust jacket of that book, Australia’s Defence, posed the following
question: ‘Can Australia Defend Itself?’ Millar thus placed the defence of Australia
at the centre of his (and the SDSC’s) work from the outset. Much of the SDSC’s
effort over the intervening 40 years, and I would venture to say most of what
has been of value in that effort, has been directed toward questions about the
defence of the continent. This has also been the case for most of the work by
Australian defence policymakers over the same period. In this chapter I want
to reflect on that work by exploring how the idea of the ‘defence of Australia’
has evolved over that time, and especially how its role in policy has changed,
from the mid-1960s up to and including the most recent comprehensive statement
of defence policy, Defence 2000: Our Future Defence Force.
This is no dry academic question. The key question for Australian defence
policy today is how we balance priority for the defence of Australia against
priority for the defence of wider strategic interests. The starting point for that
debate is the policies of the 1970s and 1980s, which placed major emphasis on
the defence of the continent....
