Does not compute; how validity concerns often undermine even the most basic conclusions drawn from students’ scores on today’s ultra high-stakes tests. Leigh Ann Emrick University of Georgia Does not compute; how validity concerns often undermine even the most basic...
The history of computers in education has been variously characterized as an "accidental revolution" or "unthinking man and his thinking machines." Others have said that the computer revolution has changed the adage that "necessity is the mother of invention" to "in a computer world, invention is the...
boolean expressions, subroutines and functions, loops, threads, locks, and other abstract computer science concepts, with a focus on usability over optimal program efficiency. Unlike low-level assembly languages, high-level languages have few, if any, language elements that translate directly into a machine's...
Black-Scholes model price to the current market price and solve iteratively for the remaining unknown variance. No closed-form solution is available to compute the implied variance, so a numerical search pro- cedure such as the Newton-Raphson search or linear least-squares regression must be used. Issues...
Assessing Open Compute from a Business Perspective ABSTRACT The Open Compute(OCP) movement, which began when Facebook decided to design its own hardware as it scaled up its massive online infrastructure, applies the principles of Open Source software to hardware. As the Open Compute specifications...

Chapter 2 Optimal Control Optimal control is the standard method for solving dynamic optimization problems, when those problems are expressed in continuous time. It was developed by inter alia a bunch of Russian mathematicians among whom the central character was Pontryagin. American economists, Dorfman...

much as possible. We will call this path the optimal postman tour. Considering a weighted digraph, optimal refers to the path with a minimum total edge-weight. In the best case, the graph has even degrees and therefore any traversal of the graph is an optimal postman tour. For every other case, edges must...
1. Referring to Exhibit 1, compute the annual percentage change in net income per common share-diluted for 1998–1999, 1999–2000, and 2000–2001. (Year 1998) 3,180 x .24 = 763.20 763.20-1,017.42/763.20=.33 or 33% increase (Year 1999) 3,282 x .31 = 1,017.42 Year 1998–1999 = 33% increase ...

This report summarizes findings from an analysis of optimal output and pricing for baguettes for Rob’s Select Markets. You provided me with data from the previous 20 weeks in four different categories: quantity produced, variable cost, price, and total sales. Using this data, I created a multiplicative...
Decisions, Decisions… Decisions! I work as an Accounts Receivable Manager in a nursing home. On a daily basis I make decisions that are primarily programmed. Programmed because the same issues come up over and over again. In fact, I actually developed a rulebook for my staff and I to employ on certain...
