    models and recommend the more suitable ones. 6.1 Signalized Intersection Models Three queue-delay models for signalized intersection were described in the previous section namely the deterministic model, shock-wave delay model and the steady-state stochastic model. F. Dion et al. (2004) presents a comparison of the different models for signalized intersections. The paper followed a simple example of an intersection to develop the comparison. A single-lane approach with a 60 s cycle length and 30 s effective

    My favorite AP Calculus AB topic is solving limits. This is because limits are fairly simple to solve. AP Calculus AB was extremely difficult for me, so I was happy to find a topic that was somewhat easy for me to understand. I know that a limit is the value that a function or sequence approaches as the input or index approaches some x-value. To solve most limits, I had to use six basic properties of limits: the sum rule, the difference rule, the product rule, the constant multiple rule, the quotient

    The major topics explored in Calculus C are largely defined by derivatives of vector-valued and parametrically defined functions, integration by partial fractions, improper integrals, series convergence (Taylor and Maclaurin), L’Hopitals Rule, and numerous applications. All of the following topics require a solid foundation in not only Calculus A but also Calculus B. Vector-valued functions include mathematical functions of one or more variables whose range is defined as a set of both multidimensional

    and what I learned as well as my career. I was placed in Sharpstown International School, in which I was with Mr. O 'Heron. He taught both Pre-calculus and Calculus classes. Those two classes are for seniors and there may have been a few juniors in the pre-calculus class. There are in total four classes that I observed, one calculus and the rest pre-calculus. Activities Throughout the field, I barely engaged in any different activities, mainly observe the students. Though they did ask a few questions

    It was December and near the end of the first semester of my senior year. I sat next to my close friend Adrian as I helped him understand the last few AP Calculus lessons. The time had reached 4:30 P.M., and we’d been sitting together in Mr. Brink’s room after school for almost two hours. Mr. Brink sat at his desk while Adrian and I were at a different table. Only the three of us remained in the room. Eventually, Adrian started to pack up. I gave him a hug as he left, then sat back down. As I looked

    Prior to taking Pre – Calculus I had taken College Algebra which has helped me tremendously with the objectives of Pre – Calculus. I learned basic algebra skills that helped me advance in solving the objectives needed for the advancement of the course. I am currently working for a construction framing business in which some math skills are required. I plan on obtaining a major in structural engineering and a minor in mechanical. The College Algebra class thought me how to add, subtract, divide

    receiving stickers and praise notes in elementary school to non-stop studying for an algebra test, I’ve always expected an A on my assignments. But then came junior year of high school. I had signed up for one of my school’s most demanding courses, AP Calculus AB. On the first day of class, the teacher explained the depth of the material we would be learning, telling us that it would cover a wide range of math, and showed us a brief introduction to it. He also mentioned that it was a course where we would
