GATE 2012....

GATE 2012 has become all the more interesting now - GATE 2012 score can now be used for two purposes:1 For PG study admission in more than 300 engineering colleges in India. 2. For getting that lucrative job in IOCL and other public sectors companies. Prior to GATE 2009, there were 85 questions for 150 marks. In GATE 2009, there were 60 questions for 100 marks. Since from GATE 2010, there are now 65 questions for 100 marks. books for GATE Computer Science according to your area of weakness: 1.Higher Engineering Mathematics by B.S.

Attention deficit in kids

A study says Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder among children is increasing .Symptoms of ADHD include restless feeling, often fidgeting with hands or feet, running, climbing, or leaving a seat, blurting out answers before hearing the whole question, and having difficulty waiting in line .ADHD can cause significant interference in a child's academics and interpersonal relations.A of factors that may contribute to ADHD including genetics, diet and social and physical environments.The survey was conducted in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur and Lucknow.

Mathematics Teaching

For the countless kids who sit through math class and wonder about the usefulness of algebra, geometry or calculus.Historically most "appealing" jobs haven't required mathematics ; rather, at most, only an ability to use calculators (old) and computers, internet (new). As a result, most kids see math as a giant bag of forgettable information used only to challenge them academically.In the wake of the Japanese earthquake or with all the recent flooding in parts of Canada, having effective evacuation plans are prepared by modelling..mathematical modelling is nothing new. The ancient Egyptians used geometry to model the world as they knew it and to predict when the Nile River would flood. At the height of the H1N1, or swine flu, outbreak in 2009, researchers from Toronto's St. Michael's Hospital used air traffic pattern data to accurately predict how the virus would spread around the's important that the mathematics community showcase the role we are playing and use this to excite kids and the public on the power of mathematics.
