Teachers, Curriculum Designers and Social Studies

For a while now both teachers and developers of curriculum have realized that their lies a lot of similarities between standards that are part of social studies and standards that are part of education methods that are found in elementary schools. This is precisely the reason why teachers as well as curriculum developers are finding it easier to make social studies subjects such as civics, geography and economics topics and designs as part of the school syllabus.

Teachers and course developers are using the social studies standards to create awareness among their students about other standards in subjects like economics and geography.

What it takes to be a good tutor?

Teaching is not that easy as it looks like and takes a lot of effort on the part of the tutor to become a successful professional. Good tutors are popular and respected anywhere they go and are capable of easily motivating students towards studies and their respective interests. A good tutor can be recognized at a glance and a conversation would be enough to testify the fact. The demand for good tutors is quite healthy around the country as students need the guidance and assistance of a tutor from initial stages of their academic career only.

So, what it takes to be a good tutor is the question now! Before answering that it is better to break a myth that tutors are not necessarily of very high qualification and supreme intelligence. Tutoring is a an activity or profession of relative competence, that is, even if you are a high school student or a graduate student you can always teach few students junior to you as long as you have your knowledge and concepts sound and correct added up with good communication and explanation skills. All that is needed of a tutor is to clarify the concepts that students may find a bit hard initially and clear the doubts and obstacles they face while learning a particular subject or topic.

Basic Properties of Triangles

Basic Properties of Triangles

Triangles have many useful properties that allow us to calculate many things easily. Some of the most basic and common properties will be discussed here.

First off, let us discuss how to calculate the area of a triangle if you do not know its height. If all you have are the lengths of the sides A, B and C, there is still a way to calculate it. It is given by

sqrt(Sx(S-A)(S-B)(S-C)). Where S = A+B+C/2 or Perimeter/2.

A triangle has the property that the largest angle is opposite to the largest side, and vice versa. Also, it is not possible to construct a triangle if the sum of any two of its sides is not greater than the third side. Thus, for three sides X, Y and Z, they can form a triangle if and only if X+Y>Z, Y+Z>X and X+Z>Y.

Aspects of Information Science

Aspects of Information Science

Information science is the science of collecting, classifying, storing, changing and displaying of data. It uses the concepts of databases and database management systems to organize data. It is not a science directly related to computer science; in fact it draws from many disciplines such as library science, mathematics, statistics and management. It merely developed to using computers as a tool, and the focus is on how they can be effectively utilized for data management than on how they work.
Information science started out as small libraries consisting of a limited collection of books. It expanded through the years as the technology developed; it progressed to using punch cards to store information and finally to computers – mini and super computers for large amount of data and manipulation.
