This article presents a view of this issue that is often overlooked – that the policies universities adopt relative to math requirements can be seen as civil rights issues. As a Latino college math professor who started his training at Cal State Northridge, this is an important issue for me. In fact, I spent three years as an employee of the Carnegie Foundation and worked on both Statway and Quantway in a variety of ways. For the last four years, I’ve been back at work as a full time professor of math, and have been working hard with colleagues at my own college to totally re-invent our curriculum so that non-STEM students have quality, rigorous, and shortened pathways to complete their associate degrees.

I’m not alone! All over the country, hundreds (probably thousands) of math faculty are working very hard on this challenging issue. A lot of the hard, time-consuming work on Statway and initiatives like it has been done by math professors who actually do believe our non-STEM majors are perfectly suited for “meaningful civic engagement” and absolutely deserve a college education and degree.

This entire article frames the issue as one of policy at CSU. Then, only at the end, the author implies that “many” math professors are a big part of the problem. And that may be true to some degree – some math faculty hold on to beliefs that get in the way of clearing obstacles for students to complete their education, as do many other faculty, factors, and policies.

But the article also states that across the country, students who are “given the chance to enroll directly in college statistics, or take a remedial course on quantitative reasoning skills better aligned with statistics” are “succeeding at far higher rates than those forced to take algebra courses.”

Who do you think is giving them this chance? It doesn’t appear out of nowhere. Many administrators, curriculum writers, non-profits and, yes, math faculty, have done the hard work to make these options available to students. I think it’s important to keep in mind that “many” math professors are on the front lines of addressing this issue by working on and with initiatives like Statway, creating and testing new curriculum, learning new and more effective pedagogical practices, engaging with four-year institutions to ease transfer options, etc. Indeed, “many” are doing their part. Taking a snarky swipe at math educators at the end, without providing a balanced picture of their work to remedy this situation, doesn’t make much sense. Nor does it seem particularly productive.

I was at a restaurant some time ago. The waitress accidentally charged 10% tax on the bill instead of 8%. And she had lost the pre-tax cost of the dinner. No one knew how to figure out the correct amount for the bill. It was a question in basic algebra but no one knew how to come up with the correct amount for the bill. Finally it was brought … Read More

I was at a restaurant some time ago. The waitress accidentally charged 10% tax on the bill instead of 8%. And she had lost the pre-tax cost of the dinner. No one knew how to figure out the correct amount for the bill. It was a question in basic algebra but no one knew how to come up with the correct amount for the bill. Finally it was brought to the attention of the restaurant manager and he figured it out. It is foolish to say that basic mathematical skills are not part of everyday life. Moreover, this article makes it sound like requiring knowledge of low-level high school mathematics is an indictment against people who are not mathematically savvy.

There is a reason to know basic high school mathematics. The higher level courses like college algebra, calculus, statistics, freshman physics, freshman chemistry all rely on the basic mathematical skills from high school mathematics. If students wish greater insight into the world and the universe we live in, they will not achieve it without such basic mathematics. Such students can make it through these courses with a great deal of anxiety but they won’t have actually learned anything – they will not have any greater insight. These courses will be painful and will serve only as a right of passage – not as a path to any kind of insight or enlightenment.

It is emotionally painful to see many students pay tens of thousands of dollars a year in tuition, not to actually learn anything. Education is not supposed to be a survival contest. It is to bring about a deeper understanding of oneself, the world and the universe we live in. Of course it is to learn necessary technical skills for one’s career. Education has to keep a balance between pragmatism and world view. It is wrong to think of education solely as a means to make money. Trade schools exist for that. They serve a purpose – as important as any. If the individual wants only that, then this option exists. But that is a distinct purpose and different from that of a college or university.

Even the natural sciences – biology in particular – are becoming more mathematical, as the growing fields of biophysics, bio-mathematics and bio-statistics are making increasingly greater contributions to the field. The long unsolved protein folding problem is now understood having applied statistical mechanics to the entropy and free energy of the proteins. Mathematics continues to make important contributions to fields of study and to society in ways that were previously not envisioned.

Carl Sagan pointed out that our economy is becoming completely dependent on technology but society is becoming more technologically ignorant. He argued that such a schism could ultimately be catastrophic.

On top of this, many colleges have tutoring centers where the student can get one on one help. These centers can review the class notes with the student, can review homework with the student and most importantly provide a channel for communication and personal attention. Many centers provide feedback to the professors so that they are aware of the efforts of the students.

As with everything in life, this is a question of responsibility and accountability. There is cause and effect. If a student neglects education from early on, there will be a deleterious outcome later.

And regarding the concepts of responsibility and accountability, this article is blaming the “institution” and the “collection of math professors” for the indolence of the individual. There are two ways to make it at anything. One is to be blessed with natural talent, the other is through hard work. This article condones displacing responsibility for the individual and transforming into blame of the institution. And the reader will hopefully notice the hypocrisy in marginalizing an entire sect of society (the professor or the math professor). You cannot get justice nor an efficient system by continually displacing responsibility from one group while blaming another. This is a classic case of playing victim to avoid responsibility. Playing victim has nothing to do with justice. It is always about gaining power.

To paint this topic with such broad strokes is a deception, a play at sophistry and manipulation.

Let’s understand that advanced math has been used as a gatekeeper by numerous departments in the academy when each respective department/field should have field-oriented assessments that evaluate students’ abilities when enrolled in the major itself. It’s about understanding disciplinary literacy as tied to each field or subfield. The community colleges seem to get it. Perhaps one day the same will be true for those in the UC or CSU system.

Hasn't anyone taken the time to think that maybe it's just on the student? I'm currently a fourth year at UCSB and a transfer student, and I started off in trigonometry, and that was a tough class. But guess what: I worked harder than I thought I could and I passed. There are so many resources out there for students to succeed including detailed solutions for students to look at.

> > Virtually Ourselves

Virtual reality technology (VR) has become increasingly adept at enabling subjects to feel present in virtual worlds. Arguably, the heart of this phenomenon is the experience of oneself as a virtual body within the virtual world perceived. Unconstrained by the bounds of physical reality, VR thus presents the promise of otherwise impossible forms of self-conscious experience, thus stretching our current understanding of the limits of our self-conscious experience.

This CFS workshop will bring together philosophers, psychologists, VR researchers and VR artists to explore the relationship between illusory experience in VR and contemporary psychological and philosophical conceptions of self-consciousness.

The workshop will include presentations and demonstrations by:

Other confirmed participants include:

research project.

Immersive virtual reality (IVR) has been successfully exploited in the study of body ownership illusions - a topic that contributes to the question of how the human brain represents the body (1). This is made possible because with a head-tracked wide field of view head-mounted display, and other tracking and stimulation equipment, it is possible to visually substitute a person’s real body by a virtual body (VB), that is coincident in space with the real body, moves synchronously with it, and where visuotactile synchronisation is possible with respect to seen events on the VB and the corresponding stimuli felt on the real one (2). Such a process of virtual embodiment typically gives rise to the perceptual illusion of ownership and the illusion agency with respect to the virtual body (3). Here we explore how IVR may be used to transform the self providing examples ranging from racial bias (4-6), psychological problems (7, 8) and illusory agency (9).

Virtual reality (VR) is a highly effective tool for manipulating the visual body, the contents of the visual world and actions within it. At the same time, the scientific study of perception and action in virtual environments has clear implications for the design specifications of VR software and technology. I will present a series of studies designed to compare the ways in which various display technologies and simulated contents influence subjects’ ability to judge the size and shape of their bodies and perform highly determinate self-location judgements.

Even in a graduate-level class like this one, we made lots of simplifying assumptions. This was the header text that appeared at the top of our problem sets:

For this assignment (and generally in this class) you may disregard measure-theoretic niceties about conditioning on measure-zero sets. Of course, you can feel free to write up the problem rigorously if you want, and I am happy to field questions or chat about how we could make the treatment fully rigorous (Piazza is a great forum for that kind of question as long as you can pose it without spoilers!)

Well, I shouldn’t say I was disappointed, since I was more relieved if anything. If I had to formalize everything with measure theory, I think I would get bogged down with trying to understand measure this, measure that, the integral is with respect to X measure, etc.

Even with the “measure-theoretically naive” simplification, I had to spend lots of time working on the problem sets. In general, I could usually get about 50-80 percent of a problem set done by myself, but for the remainder of it, I needed to consult with other students, the GSI, or the professor. Since problem sets were usually released Thursday afternoons and due the following Thursday, I made sure to set aside either Saturday or Sunday as a day where I worked solely on the problem set, which allowed me to get huge chunks of it done and LaTeX-ed up right away.

The bad news is that it wasn’t easy to find student collaborators. I had collaborators for some (but not all of) the problem sets, and we stopped meeting later in the semester. Man, I wish I were more popular. I also attended a few office hours, and it could sometimes be hard to understand the professor or the GSI if there were a lot of other students there. The GSI office hours were a major problem, since another class had office hours in the same room . Think of overlapping voices from two different subjects. Yeah, it’s not the best setting for the acoustics and I could not understand or follow what people were discussing apart from scraps of information I could get from the chalkboard. The good news is that the GSI, apart from obviously knowing the material very well, was generous with partial credit and created solutions to all the problem sets, which were really helpful to me when I prepared for the three-hour final exam.

The day of the final was pretty hectic for me. I had to gave a talk at EnllerviiD Women Lace Up Lifestyle Fashion Sneakers Casual Athletic Running Sports Walking Shoes 701 Brown iEcngpy
in San Francisco that morning, then almost immediately board BART to get back to Berkeley by 1:00PM to take the exam. (The exam was originally scheduled at 8:00AM Nike Jordan Mens New School Coral Rose/Black hwRu02
(!!) but Professor Fithian kindly allowed me to take it at 1:00PM.) I did not have any time to change clothes, so for the first time in my life, I took an exam wearing business attire .

Business attire or not, the exam was tough. Professor Fithian made it four broad questions, each with multiple parts in it. I tried doing all four, and probably did half of all four correct, roughly. We were allowed a one-sided, one-page cheat sheet, and I crammed mine in with A LOT of information, but I almost never used it during the exam. This is typical, by the way. Most of the time, simply creating the cheat sheet actually serves as my studying. As I was also preoccupied with research, I only spent a day and a half studying for the final.

How does this option work? Using a credit card, the delivery driver purchases an $990 one-time-use refundable delivery ticket at the Box Office of the event. The delivery driver than has six (6) hours to deliver their goods and return to the Box Office with their ticket and credit card to have the cost of the ticket refunded.

Who is this option good for? This option is good for groups who only need a single delivery made.

What are the limitations of this option? Delivery tickets cannot be purchased in advance of the event, so drivers will be required to pull over, park in the Will Call lot, get out and purchase a ticket from the Box Office. Drivers must use their own credit cards for the purchase—tickets cannot be paid for in cash or paid for by the delivery recipient. If the delivery driver does not return to the Box Office within six(6) hours, the cost of the ticket is forfeit and they will not receive a refund. A delivery driver may only buy one delivery ticket, so it is not an option for anyone needing multiple deliveries.

How does this option work? Our Outside Services Program is intended to help support projects by facilitating access to the event site by larger-scale service providers. Approved Providers are required to provide BRC with proof of insurance and a copy of their business license. BRC will confirm with BLM that the Provider has submitted all necessary paperwork to obtain a BLM SRP for the event and is eligible to apply with OSS. PLEASE NOTE: BRC is NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW Service Providers for the Outside Services Program in 2018 . Returning Service providers must renew their SRP with the BLM by May 1st. Applicants invited to continue their participation in the Outside Services program will be required to sign a contract with Burning Man agreeing to the terms of their participation and limitations of the program. Drivers with Outside Services credentials are able to make deliveries on playa via the delivery gate 6am until 6pm each day on or after their authorized delivery start date as specified in their contract.

PLEASE NOTE: BRC is NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW Service Providers for the Outside Services Program in 2018

What are the limitations of this option? In addition to signing a contract with us and abiding by its terms, companies must be able to provide copies of their business license and insurance. Additionally, providers are required to secure their own Special Recreation Permit (SRP) from the BLM. New Service Providers must have their SRP application in no later than 180 days prior to the event start date (March 1st). Returning Service providers must renew their SRP within 120 days (May 1st). You need to call before submitting or renewing your permit application: BLM Winnemucca District Office, 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd. | Winnemucca NV 89445 | Phone: 775-623-1500 BLM SRP Application webpage . Any deliveries of potable water or prepared food are required to furnish a Nevada State Health Certificate. Any deliveries of fuel must comply with the FUEL DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS .
