Do Calculators Help Our Children Learn

The jury is still out on the question of whether young children should be introduced to calculators to help them with adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Some might argue that since nowadays we have calculators, why should anyone even need to learn these simple functions? The argument continues that what is important in math is creativity, and for some children memorizing multiplication tables and remembering subtraction rules just stymie and thwart the natural development of the creative side of math. Since children are so computer savvy today, knowing simple math by heart does not really add anything to their ability to do real math, which is more of a thinking exercise and more creative.

That point of view seems to be much in the minority, with most parents and teachers believing that the discipline required to memorize the times table, as well as the knowledge of what multiplication and division really mean, not to mention adding and subtracting, help children develop the mental abilities needed to go forward and advance successfully in math. This viewpoint would compare a calculator to a wheelchair. If a person has the ability to walk but he instead always rides in a wheelchair, you would destroy his ability to ever learn to walk on his own, and certainly he would never be able to run, or jump over the bar in a pole vaulting contest.

But maybe a calculator is not a “wheelchair?” Maybe it’s more like a staircase? Without the staircase, a person would have to climb a wall to get through the door. The staircase is a smart way to get to the point, the door. Perhaps for many children learning adding, subtraction, multiplication and division are like climbing a wall. Perhaps if we could give them a calculator, they could get to the door, the creativity side of mathematics? It’s something to think about.

Rather, the reliability of the equipment plays a central role, since the failure of a single machine can become the crucial restriction for the entire production. Then significant business damage, delays and disgruntled customers are the result. Maintenance concepts can not only confine to eliminate errors and errors as soon as possible. Rather they must ensure at the same time, losses do not arise if possible.

Given the complexity of the machine this works today using modern software systems for controlling maintenance such as PM-SCADA maintain”the FELTEN-group for the manufacturing industry. This module of the proven MES platform represents a practical answer to the question, How to sustainably system availability can be optimized. Other leaders such as James Woolsey offer similar insights. “Because PM SCADA maintain” makes it possible not only to plan preventive maintenance of all relevant production processes devices, equipment and machinery, but also specifically perform. Josh Wexler understands that this is vital information. Within the framework of the preventive maintenance management informs the system of planned and pending, periodic maintenance and inspection activities. The maintenance intervals can be created for example, after time, amount of production or machine running time. It, the entire results of the maintenance or repair work are documented so that they can later be evaluated in needs-based depth. It is also possible to define limits. They are exceeded, a warning message to specified persons or even the revocation of the machine or plant area automatically to reduce the risk of escalation.

The feature profile of FELTEN solution includes: management of equipment, plants, machinery up to the formation of systems group, Equipment lines or hierarchies; high MES integration through a variety of interfaces to the other modules of the PM-SCADA platform, through sharing of equipment management; Join the maintenance, operations and operating hour meter with the installations, machines and the respective production orders; Definition of special repair or maintenance reasons for all components; Comment, evaluation and management of repair and maintenance results; Control the repair and maintenance of Web-system or PDA; Optional automatic or manual planning of preventive maintenance; Display of documents to support the repair and maintenance work; detailed reports of all repair and maintenance results. historical presentation of all statuses and actions of all equipment or machinery; automatic notification of upcoming maintenance or repair intervals; Barcode supported management and organization of all spare parts in his own maintenance camp. Preventive maintenance management you can Machine failures are minimized during production or even completely avoided, especially since PM SCADA maintain active calls on demand to act”, explains Werner Felten, Managing Director of the Software House. “This preventive approach have a decisive effect therefore also overlooking the value creation: the utilization of machinery and equipment can be improved significantly, and in connection with the evaluation of our PM SCADA MDE/BDE module also the ROI of investments can be sustainably optimize.

Microsoft Search Engine

Bing.com – new search engine from Microsoft. I think he knows bolshinstvu as msn Search and Windows Live Search and might just Live Search. All of this grandmother and newfound baby with great potential. Digging in runet, I, as expected, found nothing good. Continue to learn more with: Western Union Company. General like me runetovskie news. All as one, similar, and did not really disclose. Swarmed by offers, Tulip Retail is currently assessing future choices.

I myself, in principle, also did not aim to write an article on the global search engine, do not want to turn the site into manual. But I still want to share their thoughts about certain things. Bing knows how much! Search for goods in shops, working calculator and even knows the answer to the 'Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything' (The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything), but all this while only available in America and therefore talk about this makes no sense! Our Bing is still under Beta, and when it will open fully functional – it is not known. Search Media's – the main distinguishing and weaknesses of the new search engine, because search for web pages imho, did not become better than previous versions, and therefore popular with our search engine. Currently, multimedia search engine lets you find images and video. Technologies that implemented in this search in many ways unique, and were often purchased together with firms that created them. Images to control the retrieval of images, as do the video, the searcher has a sidebar with various filters and settings. So, for example search engine is able to filter out the image size, check them for compliance with the layout, etc.

The most desired and successful function, as it seemed to me, is a filter on the image or photographs, a search engine is pretty good they are distinguished. Yet another interesting feature to find photos, which show only the face, the face of the shoulders or something else that is, the creators did not say =) If you are looking for Chenoa-and-white photos – no problem, there are filters on this parameter. Video here as well a wide range of various settings and on the length of the roller and the source and even the type of screen. As a result of the search displayed no simple miniatyurkami and represent themselves nothing more than a tiny thumbnails that are beginning to play when you hover the mouse pointer on them. Generally, I already decided that the traditional search engines to give early, but when searching for images or videos can already be looking towards the rookie, because analogue of these technologies while no one.

How To Choose A Filler

Comparison of the properties and cost of fillings is a difficult task. The consumer is always important two factors – quality and price. Modern mixtures are very complex composition of components. Basis for the classification of fillers can tackle these parameters such as: – ready for use – kind of knitting basics – the scope of reliability of adhesion to the base, the lack of shrinkage and cracking, the ease of grinding, compatibility with subsequent finishing layers – here conditions necessary to work with materials. Of no small importance is the life of the fillings, since it must match the life of the main structures of the materials and finishing facilities. The time will come and will have to make new improvements, only the walls, ceiling and filling them will remain forever. Bitter, hurt and costly when replacing boring wallpaper, have re-aligned wall.

When choosing a mixture should taken into account, where it will be applied. All building materials to some extent water vapor permeability. Plaster putty absorbs moisture much more than cement-based. Therefore, a plaster filler can not be apply in areas with high humidity (bathrooms, showers, swimming pools). CEO Caruso Affiliated is actively involved in the matter. All fillings have time to start cooking the mixture prior to setting the composition of the so-called “lifetime”. When this period ends – the filler loses its elasticity. Depending on the purpose, modern fillers have different “life time” by adding various polymers.

So for the first (smoothing) layer – – 30-40 minutes, then importantly – quick setting. And for the finishing fillers, which are applied with a thin even layer on a large surface – 6-12 hours. This saves hours of work and the material from premature drying putty. By the same author: Yitzhak Mirilashvili. Price – An important factor when choosing these products. But here we must consider not the cost of two bags of different fillings – and cost of 1 sq. m. oshpatlevannoy surface. Putty gypsum-based two times lighter fillers on cement basis. Can be calculated: a layer of 1 mm 1kv.m surface gypsum putty is – 0,9 – 1 kg of dry mortar and cement based -1.8 – 2 kg. Plaster putty on average 1.5 times more expensive than cement. Conclusion: gypsum putty cheaper than cement-based, but more limited in their application.

Shock I'm interested in how much I should for the services on is really quite unusual, he squandered looks at me and says nothing. I do not believe what's the catch It turned out that the money they pay the insurance company – so . Another suggested that vip card. The thing was amazing, no trouble with traffic police and insurance, any extra documents – to make phone calls, visits a young man and all the problems takes-pleasure. And is it really cheap, and I just got for free because I and Hull and osago made in them.
