Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules

Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules by Ruby Suarez, Sonoma State University

The C5.0 decision tree algorithm and rule learners are two machine learning methods that also make complex decisions from sets of simple choices. Decision tree learners are powerful classifiers, which utilize a tree structure to model the relationship among the features and potential outcomes. Decision trees are built using a technique called recursive partitioning, also known as divide and conquer which splits the data into subsets which then split into even smaller subsets until the algorithm determines the data within the subsets are sufficiently homogenous.

Enjoy tea and cookies at the Math and Statistics Lecture Series every Wednesday at 4PM.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Re-presentation and Multiple Representations

Re-presentation and Multiple Representations by Kevin Moore, University of Georgia

In this talk, using the function concept, I clarify potential issues with “using multiple representations” as typically framed. I describe how these issues can explain the mixed results typically found with using multiple representations. In doing so, I draw on my research group’s work to illustrate a productive approach to “using multiple representations” that relies less on the type or number of representations and more on the act of re-presenting covariational relationships.   

Enjoy tea and cookies at the Math and Statistics Lecture Series every Wednesday at 4PM.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: The Cow Problem of Narayana Pandita

The Cow Problem of Narayana Pandita, a Fibonacci-like Problem from Fourteenth Century India by Dean Gooch, Santa Rosa Junior College

The Cow Problem of Narayana Pandita involves the growth of a cow population over twenty years. These cows are able to have their own female calves in the fourth year of their life. I will investigate the series solution used to solve this problem by fourteenth century Indian mathematicians and look into finding a recurrence relation to solve this problem. Extensions of this problem will also be examined.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Lion

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon, Saroo is selected to be adopted by the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving, prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love that he has always had with all his loved ones in both worlds.

Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Don Romesburg, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Hidden Figures

As America stood on the brink of a Second World War, the push for aeronautical advancement grew ever greater, spurring an insatiable demand for mathematicians. Women were the solution. Ushered into the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in 1935 to shoulder the burden of number crunching, they acted as human computers, freeing the engineers of hand calculations in the decades before the digital age. Sharp and successful, the female population at Langley skyrocketed.

Many of these “computers” are finally getting their due, but conspicuously missing from this story of female achievement are the efforts contributed by courageous, African-American women. Called the West Computers, after the area to which they were relegated, they helped blaze a trail for mathematicians and engineers of all races and genders to follow. Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Sara Kassis, Adjunct Professor of Engineering

Science and the Director for Women In Tech.
