The component of the market model approach developed by Labys (1973) is the basic structure models in the analysis of agricultural commodity markets .the model according Labys (1973) suggests that for a particular commodity, four equations supply, demand, price and stock (commonly used as an identity to reveal the market clearing condition) are used simultaneously. However as noted by Abdel Hameed et al. (2009) more complex structures of the market behaviour have been developed from

## My Reflection Of Teaching Secondary School Mathematics

863 Words | 4 PagesThe course Teaching Secondary School Mathematics was very interesting and informative. As I reflect on this course I recognize that it has brought a lot of information into perspective. My classmates and I, at first, found this very tedious but we gradually got a sense of appreciation for the wealth of knowledge we gained from this experience. Among some of the points emphasised were how to write unit plans and lesson plans implementing the 5E’s. It was reiterated that these plans were to be student-centred

## Quadratic Equation Research Paper

1026 Words | 5 PagesQuadratic Equations: Introduction: Quadratic equation is a polynomial equation of the 2nd degree. The word ‘quadratic’ comes from the Latin word quadratus which represent the word ‘square’. Quadratic equation is an equation which can be written in the form of ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a and b are coefficients of x2 and x respectively and c is a constant. The coefficient of x2 cannot be zero and the expression ax2 + bx + c is called as ‘quadratic expression’. For example, 4x2 + 5x + 2 = 0 is a quadratic

## The Brachistochrone Problem

944 Words | 4 Pagesof T using the Euler-Lagrange equation is the problem under calculus of variations. Let suppose M is defined by an integral in the form: M=∫_x1^x2▒L(x,y,y^' )dx (13) Here, M is called the functional and has a constant extreme value if the Euler-Lagrange equation is satisfied. The Euler-Lagrange equation is: ∂L/∂y-d/dx (∂L/(∂y^' ))=0 (14) *Note: The derivation of the Euler-Lagrange equation will not be a part of this exploration. So, to solve Euler-Lagrange equation, we might substitute the value

## Oxalic Acid And Permanganate

744 Words | 3 PagesIn this experiment, a reaction of oxalic acid and permanganate was used to determine the rate law and rate constant of that reaction. The rate law is an equation that uses the concentrations, the orders of the reaction and the rate constant to calculate the rate. The reaction consisted of water and oxalic acid being added to a Pyrex tube. After a few seconds of stirring that solution, permanganate was added and a timer was used to calculate how long it would take for the solution to go from dark
