A teacher believing a student is more intelligent than they really are could change the interaction between this student and the teacher in many ways. This student could see the teacher having faith in them and perhaps seeing something in them that they don’t see in themselves. It could cause the student to have higher self esteem by this teacher thinking positively about them. This could be detrimental to the student because other students could consider the extra attention they’re getting from the teacher as favoring, in turn could cause other students to bully them accusing the student to be a teacher’s pet.

This theory is used in law enforcement with subjects that are have mental delirium or excessive excitability. If a subject is being hostile because they believe that crowd control is needed due to Elvis’ concert that’s about to begin, then law enforcement officers are able to “play along” with the subject in order to get them to do what needs to be done. This could be beneficial by the subject cooperating without anyone getting hurt, including them. This could be detrimental because if at any point the subject realizes what the law enforcement officer is doing, they may be under the impression that they’re being mocked or made fun of. This could easily cause the subject to become even more hostile than they were initially.

...The Pythagorean Theorem was one of the earliest theorems known to ancient civilizations. This famous theorem is named for the Greek mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras. Pythagoras founded the Pythagorean School of Mathematics in Cortona, a Greek seaport in Southern Italy. He is credited with many contributions to mathematics although some of them may have actually been the work of his students.
The Pythagorean Theorem is...

Pythagorean Theorem
In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem or Pythagoras' theorem is a relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle (right-angled triangle). In terms of areas, it states:
In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two...

...Historical Account:
Pythagoras, the namesake and supposed discoverer of the Pythagorean Theorem, was born on the Greek island of Samos in the early in the late 6th century. Not much is known about his early years of life, however, we do know that Pythagoras traveled through Egypt in the attempt to learn more about mathematics.
Besides his famous theorem, Pythagoras gained fame for founding a group, the Brotherhood of Pythagoreans, which was dedicated solely...

...theoremsThe Sylow Theorems
Here is my version of the proof of the Sylow theorems. It is the result of
taking the proof in Gallian and trying to make it as digestible as possible. In
particular, I tried to break the long proof into bite-sized pieces. The main
goal here is to convey an overview of how the ingredients fit together, so I'll
skip lightly over some of the details.
The prerequisites are basically all of the group theory that came before the...

...BINOMIAL THEOREM :
AKSHAY MISHRA
XI A , K V 2 , GWALIOR
In elementary algebra, the binomial theorem describes the algebraic expansion of powers of a binomial. According to the theorem, it is possible to expand the power (x + y)n into a sum involving terms of the form axbyc, where the coefficient of each term is a positive integer, and the sum of the exponents of x and y in each term is n. For example: The coefficients appearing in the binomial...

...The Coase Theorem
In “The Problem of Social Cost,” Ronald Coase introduced a different way of thinking about externalities, private property rights and government intervention. The student will briefly discuss how the Coase Theorem, as it would later become known, provides an alternative to government regulation and provision of services and the importance of private property in his theorem.
In his book The Economics of Welfare, Arthur C. Pigou,...

...Negative Externalities and the Coase Theorem
As Adam Smith explained, selfishness leads markets to produce whatever people want. To get rich, you have to sell what the public wants to buy. Voluntary exchange will only take place if both parties perceive that they are better off. Positive externalities result in beneficial outcomes for others, whereas negative externalities impose costs on others. The Coase Theorem is most easily explained via an example
This...

...Thevenin Theorem
It provides a mathematical technique for replacing for a given network, as viewed from two output terminals by a single voltage source with a series resistance. It makes the solution of complicated networks (particularly, electronic networks) quite quick and easy.
The Thevenin’s theorem, as applied to d.c. circuits, may be stated as under:
The current flowing through a load resistance RL connected across any two terminals A and B of a...
