* Scientific notation is a way of writing very large and very small numbers in a compact form. * A number written in scientific notation is written in the form: a x 10b

WRITING A NUMBER IN SCIENTIFIC NOTATION
* Shift the decimal point so that there is one digit before the decimal point. * Multiply by a power of 10, equal to the number of places the decimal point has been moved. * The power of 10 is positive if the decimal point is moved to the left and negative if the decimal point is moved to the right.

ENGINEERING NOTATION

* Engineering notation is similar to the scientific notation. In engineering notation the po0wers of ten are always multiples of 3. * A number written in engineering notation is written in the form: a x 10b

Where: a is a number greater than 1 and less than 999
B is an integer multiple of three

WRITING A NUMBER IN ENGINEERING NOTATION

* Shift the decimal point in “gropus of three” until the number before the decimal point is betqween 0 and 99. * Multiply by a power of 10 that is equal to the number of places the decimal point has been moved. * The power of 10 is positive if the decimal poiint is moved to the left and negative if the decimal point is moved to the right.

SI PREFIXES

* SIprefixes are shorthand way of writing enineering notation for si numbers.

...Component Diagram Notations
The component diagram's main purpose is to show the structural relationships between the components of a system. In addition, component diagrams are useful communication tools for various groups. In creating a component diagram, there are different notations that can be used to show the different relationship of each component within the system. The component diagram notation set now makes it one of the easiest UML diagrams to draw:
* COMPONENT
A component can be shown as a rectangle with a keyword <<component>>, component name, and the visual stereotype or component icon.
* INTERFACE
A component defines its behaviour in terms of provided and required interfaces. An interface is the definition of a collection of one one or moore. It provides only the operations but not the implementation. Normally, an interface may be shown using a rectangle symbol with a reyword <<interface>>. An interface ca be used as a provided interface(a) or required interface(b):
A provided interface characterize services that the component offers to its environment. And it is modeled using a ball, labelled with the name, attached by a solid line to the component.. It is also known as a lollipop interface. While a required interface characterize services that the component expects from its environment. It is modeled modeled using a socket, labelled with the name, attached by a solid...

HOLIDAYS’ HOMEWORK, 2013
Dear Parent(s),
Summer Vacations are at our doorsteps. Holidays are a well deserved opportunity to relax and rewind by indulging in activities that are pleasurable and at the same time educative.
It is also a time to explore the exciting city of Delhi, visit places of interest and gather information about the magnificent monuments. Holidays’ Homework has been designed to fire the imagination of students while exciting them to explore, discover and reinvent. It is desirable that students work independently and seek assistance as and when required.
A few suggestions to be kept in mind.
Spend quality time with your children. Take them to see places of interest in Delhi. Remember to make notes and click photographs of the places you visit. Help your children to become independent by giving them responsibilities. Involve them in small household activities. Inculcate in them good manners, healthy habits and respect for elders. Help to imbibe the feelings of empathy, affection and tolerance in your children. Give them a chance to look after you and their younger brothers and sisters. Converse with your children in English. ‘Reading maketh a full man ’. Encourage your child to read well. Ensure that the choice of books he/she reads is purposeful while being entertaining. Let your child take classes in performing arts. Help your children improve their handwriting by making them write...

Maximum time allowed is 20 minutes.
See the sample test file
Instructions:
Provide grep commands according to the following criteria, working with a file called
'input'. With the exception of question #12, all questions are worth 2 marks.
1. Display all lines that are exactly 5 characters long:

grep “^.\{n\}$” input (Must ‘escape’ { and } with \) or use egrep instead of grep –E
2. Display all lines that have at least one letter 'o' in them, upper- or lower-case:
grep –i “o” input or grep “[oO]” input
3. Display all lines with string 'or' followed by an 'ate' anywhere after that:
grep “or.*ate” input
4. Show all lines that do not start with a lower-case letter:
grep “^[^a-z]” input grep –v “^[a-z]” will show blank lines as well
5. Display all lines that do not have two letters 'r' following each other:
grep –v “rr” input
6. Count all blank lines:
grep –c “^$” input

grep “,[0-9]$” input
8. Show all lines that contain an asterisk (*):
grep “\*” input
9. Display lines that contain a phone number (for example: 647-555-1234):
grep –E “[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{4}” input (if you use grep...

...international competition of choral singing of the Concorso Polifnico which was created by Guido d'Arezzo.
2. What cultural artifacts were handed down through generations in our family?
-Dad’s answer: We do not have any cultural artifacts that have been handed down.
-Research: Although we do not have an actual artifact that has been passed down, our family can be musical. Guido d’Arezzo, one of our great ancestors, was a music theorist of the medieval era. He is regarded as the inventor of modern musical notation when he was thirty-four. He came up with a method for teaching the singers to learn chants in a short time, and quickly became famous throughout north Italy. However, he attracted the hostility of the other monks at the abbey, prompting him to move to Arezzo, a town which had no abbey, but which did have a large group of cathedral singers, who’s training Bishop Tedald invited him to conduct. While at Arezzo, he developed new techniques for teaching, such as staff notation and the use of the "ut–re–mi–fa–so–la" (do–re–mi–fa–so–la). The ut–re–mi-fa-so-la syllables are taken from the initial syllables of each of the first six half-lines of the first stanza of the hymn Ut queant laxis.
3. What was home life like growing up?
-Dad’s answer: Schooling was a lot stricter. While going to a Catholic school, the teachers were allowed to hit the children on the hands with rulers when they were being disobedient. When my dad was a child, the...

...POSTFIX NOTATION
Postfix also known as Reverse Polish Notation (or RPN), is a notational system where the operation/function follows the arguments. For example, "1 2 add" would be postfix notation for adding the numbers 1 and 2.
Most programming languages use either prefix notation ("add(1, 2)" or "(add 1 2)") or infix notation ("1 add 2" or "1 + 2"). Prefix and infix are more familiar to most people, as they are the standard notations used for arithmetic and algebra.
Why then should we use postfix notation when in actual fact it seems difficult to understand?
Postfix is useful, especially for programming, because it clearly shows the order in which operations are performed, and because it disambiguates operator groupings. For example, the following postfix expression: 1 2 + 3 * 6 + 2 3 + /
means "take 1 and 2, add them, take 3 and multiply, take 6 and add, take 2 and 3, add them, and divide". In contrast, the equivalent expression in Infix Notation is:
(((1 + 2) * 3) + 6) / (2 + 3)
This may seem more familiar, but note the need for parentheses to control the order of evaluation. The prefix notation would be: (/ (+ (* (+ 1 2) 3) 6) (+ 2 3)) which can be read "inside-out" to evaluate the expression.
In postfix notation which is also called Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) the operator follows the two operands,...

...The Effect of Alcohol and Caffeine on the Water Flea: Daphnia Magna
Kristoffer Osuntuyi
Daphnia Magna Abstract:
In this experiment I will find the base heart rate of each water flea. The base heart rate is the control in my experiment. The variables in the experiment are alcohol and caffeine. After finding the control of the first flea I will surround it with alcohol. The second flea will go through the same process as the first flea did, except the variable will be caffeine. The purpose of these two experiments is to see how surrounding one water flea with alcohol and another with caffeine affects each water flea’s heart rate. I believe the Daphnia Magnus (two different water fleas) will go through a similar experience and similar side effects of having alcohol and caffeine in their bodies as humans do. In this experiment a drop of 2%, 4%, and 6% of alcohol will be administered to the first Daphnia Magna. The second Daphnia Magna will have a drop of 1%, 1.5%, and 2% of caffeine administered.
Daphnia Magna have a single compound eye, two branched antennae, and they look almost kidney-shaped. They also have a carapace, which is the upper section of the water flea’s external shell. The water flea has leaf-like limbs, in which they produce a current of water and filter food and oxygen to the mouth and its gills. According to some of my research, talking to my father, the Daphnia has a relatively low percentage of body fat; this may affect them the most when...

...effective, easily accessible and ever current education to all ages and social backgrounds, regardless of time and geography.
The advent of computer has brought so many ideas and innovations to every human. This has really helped many businesses to grow and improve up to standard. 2000 years back when the birth of computer came to existence, many scholars has really tried to develop their own computer system, being a calculator or analytical machines. Examples of these scholars include Charles Babbage who is known as the father of computer, Blaise Pascal who developed pascal programming language, Ada Augusta, etc. And Thomas Colmal who was a calculator inventor which is the case study of this project, ie this was based on how a standard and scientific calculators can be developed with the use of the object-oriented programming language, Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 by name.
1.1 HISTORY OF COMPUTER
The history of computers starts out about some 2000 years ago, at the birth of the abacus, a wooden rack holding two horizontal wires with beads strung on them. When these beads are moved around, according to programming rules memorized by the users, all regular arithmetic problems can be done. Another important invention around the same time was the Astrolabe, which was being used then for navigation.
Blaise Pascal is usually credited for building the first digital computer in 1642. it added numbers with dials and was made to help his father, a tax collector....
