The 2014 Tax Brackets Introduction Every year, the IRS adjusts more than forty tax provisions for inflation. This is done to prevent what is called “bracket creep.” This is the phenomenon by which people are pushed into higher income tax brackets or have reduced value from credits or deductions due to inflation instead of any increase in real income. Core Math Tools Home Use by Teachers and Students Core Math Tools can be saved on a computer or USB drive, making it possible to use without Internet access. Files can be saved and reloaded by students and teachers. Its portability allows easy access for students, teachers and parents outside the classroom.
Introductory Statistics Practice Quiz Before you begin a statistics course, you may want to get an idea of what you know and what you need to learn. The test will answer some of these questions for you. The test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions covering the topics in this book. Although 50 questions can't cover every concept, skill, or shortcut taught in this book, your performance on the test will give you a good indication of your strengths and weaknesses. Keep in mind, the test does not test all the skills taught in this statistics book.
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom (FAITC) Brief Description Students will trace the production of sugar from the field (sugar canes) to the granulated sugar (grains of sugar) in writing and with a flow chart, exploring this topic on the Internet. Students will solve real-world mathematics problems involving measurements and real-world data. Hands-on Multiplication with Legos (A 3-D Graph!) This Lego activity is a great way to introduce the concept of multiplication to 2nd and 3rd graders in a very hands-on way. Math doesn’t feel like work when you’re building with Legos! And the best part of this activity is that you are actually introducing your child to grouping, multiplication, division, and the commutative property all at the same time. I would highly recommend this activity if your child is an especially visual or tactile learner, or if you think your child does not “get” the concept of multiplication after being taught it in a more traditional way. I first saw this idea on The Map is Not the Territory.
When Work Is Punished: The Tragedy Of America's Welfare State Exactly two years ago, some of the more politically biased progressive media outlets (who are quite adept at creating and taking down their own strawmen arguments, if not quite as adept at using an abacus, let alone a calculator) took offense at our article "In Entitlement America, The Head Of A Household Of Four Making Minimum Wage Has More Disposable Income Than A Family Making $60,000 A Year." In it we merely explained what has become the painful reality in America: for increasingly more it is now more lucrative - in the form of actual disposable income - to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work. This is graphically, and very painfully confirmed, in the below chart from Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (a state best known for its broke capital Harrisburg). But perhaps the scariest chart in the entire presentation is the following summarizing the unsustainable welfare burden on current taxpayers:
Online tools - maths online One of many scientific calculators on the web. It accepts brackets, functions like sin, cos, tan, exp, log, sqrt, pow, asin, acos, atan, gamma, the constants E und PI. On the calculator's web page you find a detailed description. In a cooperation between the author and maths online in the beginning of 2000, the calculator's functionality has been extended. (The above version is loaded from the maths online website. One-Sample T-Test It is perhaps easiest to demonstrate the ideas and methods of the one-sample t-test by working through an example. To reiterate, the one-sample t-test compares the mean score of a sample to a known value, usually the population mean (the average for the outcome of some population of interest). The basic idea of the test is a comparison of the average of the sample (observed average) and the population (expected average), with an adjustment for the number of cases in the sample and the standard deviation of the average.
