Get intimate with your nervous system and increase your capacity for pleasure! This workshop is open to people of all genders and sexual orientations.

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

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: Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules

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: 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.
