POW Write Up; Just Count the Pegs
Problem Statement:
For the POW: Just Count the Pegs, I had to try and find the best formula possible for finding the area of any polygon on a geoboard. There are 3 different formulas you have to find. The first two are formulas that will combine together and help you find the best or “superformula”. In order to find the first two, you will make in and out tables. You will find the pattern and then come up with a formula for it. For the first part, you have to find a formula that works for polygons with one peg in the interior. For the second one you have to find the formula for the area of polygons with exactly four pegs on the boundary. Using both of these, you then find a formula that will work for any polygon. Process:

I started off by figuring out Freddie and Sally’s formulas. I had to find these two first in order to find the “superformula.” In | Out|
3| .5 |
4| 1|
5| 1.5 |
I completed Freddie’s first. Freddie’s was the easiest to find because it was a technique I had used, without really knowing it. I started out by drawing a simple in and out table. In or x was the number of pegs on the boundary of the polygon. The out or y was the area of the figure. Then I made multiple polygons on geoboard paper. I counted the pegs and calculated the area and added them to my in/out table. I used the numbers 3-5 in my table. I then looked at my table for a while and tried to find patterns in it. At first I thought it could possibly be something as simple as x plus 1 = y. Then I saw 3 was .5 and new that wouldn’t work. So I started looking at other patterns and tried out many things. Finally I came up with x/2-1=Y. I tried this for all 5 numbers and it worked for every single one of them. So, that was Freddie’s formula. In| Out|

0| 1|
1| 2|
2| 3|

Sarah’s formula was a lot more difficult for me because I was confused by what I...

...Justcount the Pegs
Freddie Short has a new shortcut to find the area of any polygon on the geoboard that has no pegs on the interior. His formula is like a rule for an In-Out in which the In is the number of pegs on the boundary and out is the area of the figure.
Sally Shorter has a shortcut for any geoboard polygon with exactly four pegs on the boundary. All you have to tell her is how many...

...POW 8
Problem Statement-
For this POW, our task was to find the best formula for finding the area of any polygon that is formed on a geoboard. In order to do this, there are two formulas given to help you. One tells how to get the area of a polygon based on the number of pegs on the boundary. This works as an In-Out table, where In is the amount of pegs on the boundary, and Out is the area. The other formula tells how to get the...

...Problem Statement
My task was to find 3 equations, that would give me an answer, if I had certain information. The first was to find one that if you knew that there were four pegs on the boundary, and none on the interior, you could get the area. The second was if you knew that there were 4 pegs on the boundary, and you knew how many were on the interior, you could get the area. And last, if you had the number on the interior, and the number on the boundary, you...

...Bang! Bang! Pow! Pow!
"Gun Control Laws Will Not Save Lives" by Stephen E. Wright, was written in 2010. Wright is a blogger/author who is continually writing about current events or issues. He is also known for his book, Off Road: A Uniquely American Novel about God, Guns, and Big Trucks…and Family. In his article, Wright discusses seven different "common sense gun laws" promoted by anti-gun groups. He analyzes each suggestion one at a time and then proceeds...

...1) What is an Entity Manager?
1) It is the service object that manages entity life-cycle instances.
2) It is a set of entity instances.
3) It is a unique value used by the persistence provider.
4) It is a value that is used to map the entity instance to the corresponding table row in the database.
Solution : 1

...POW 15 Growth of rat populations Problem Statement This problem is composed of the growth of a rat population over the course of one year from 2 rats. Four assumptions for this problem were made: Each new liter is composed of 6 rats; 3 males, 3 females. The original pair give birth to 6 rats on the first day and then ever 40 days after. There is a 120 day "gestation" period before a newborn rat can reproduce. After this gestation period the rats will give birth every 40 days....

...were the hardest years. I studied Chinese, Use of English, Chinese History, Geography and Economics in AL.
In the summer before the AL exam, make-up classes and tests were full of my schedule. I have to say that it was so tired. The pressure was just pushing me away from the books and notes; I didn’t want to face it. I still used all my effort and time to prepare for the tests at school; finally, there was no extra time for me to seriously follow my AL study plan. The mock...
