...The first pocket calculator came onto the market in 1971 (the Bowmar 901B), more commonly known as The Bowmar Brain. It cost a massive $240, but within a decade the prices of similar pocket calculators had fallen to a mere $10. During this time the technology involved progressed enormously: Scientific calculators started to emerge with more and more functions. Programmable pocket calculators came on to the market, capable of storing programmes and instructions. As the years went by, calculators had more and more features and were capable of a great deal. The Ethernet was a step forward from the Arpanet. It was developed in the early 1970s as a method of transferring data over Local Area Networks (LANs). Its emergence is usually attributed to Robert Metcalfe, who wrote a paper with his assistant David Boggs entitled ‘Ethernet: Distributed Packet-Switching for Local Computer Networks'. The next advancement was the creation of the internet. A major step forward in 1986 was the NSFNet (National Science Foundation Network), created as the backbone of a university network. Even in the 1990s, people had to sign an agreement with them in order to access large parts of the public internet. Tim Berners-Lee (whose parents were both mathematicians on the Manchester Mark 1 project) is the man responsible for the creation of the World Wide Web (WWW). He saw the potential of hypertext coupled with the internet and in August 1991 he created the first ever website, which has been......

...Science and Technology Consider: * Science and its impact on society * Scientific developments & effect on man; environment etc. * The Sciences VS the Humanities * Science & Religion Definitions: * Science - study of nature and the knowledge we gain through observations and experiments * Scientific discovery - finding out about something about the existing workings of nature that was not known before * Technology - application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes (e.g. antibiotics and their uses) * Invention - newly created product/process Science today causes as many problems as it solves. * Horrible pervasions of science * E.g. Invention of poison gas (holocaust), war against Japan ended with the atomic bomb * Even when science is intended to benefit humans, unintended consequences could occur. * E.g. Rachel carson's silent spring (1963) awakened the world to the dangers of pollution * How science in the service of business can produce catastrophic results ; pesticides for farms -> Are we blinded by profit so much so we don't do not care about the environment? * *air pollution is the biggest cause of human deaths today Science, money and value * Science is very much subservient to business interest today -> values of those who seek fame and fortune creep into science: profit often determines the direction of science, influencing the choice of problem investigated by......

...We recommend that Scientific Technology Company implement several immediate cost-cutting measures in order to improve their short-term financial position allowing the company to remain competitive in the current marketplace as well as to ensure future viability in the ATE and VLSI industries. We recommend that Scientific Technology Company immediately shut down its Arizona manufacturing plant. The shutdown and sell off of the fixed assets from the Arizona plant will provide the company with a cash infusion of approximately $21 million. We advise Scientific Technology Company to use this cash infusion to pay towards the $25 million the company has in long-term debt. We also recommend that Scientific Technology Company sell off the $28.33 million in inventories from the Arizona plant. This sell off would bring the company’s Inventories as a % of COGS to 55.45%, which is closer to Scientific Technology’s competitors 48-50% range. The company’s Total Assets as a % of Sales would decrease to 84.88% if these recommendations are implemented. The approximately $50 million dollar savings would decrease COGS to a projected $71 million in 1985 or 24% of sales. These changes would produce an estimated 21.21% return on total assets, an increase from the estimated 16.94% had the Arizona plant remained open. These changes would change 1985 projected EPS from $1.45 to 3.41. With these proposed changes, we also recommend that Scientific Technology Company improve its accounts......

Teaching Science, Mathematics, and Technology

...TEACHING SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, AND TECHNOLOGY Teaching Should Be Consistent With the Nature of Scientific Inquiry Science, mathematics, and technology are defined as much by what they do and how they do it as they are by the results they achieve. To understand them as ways of thinking and doing, as well as bodies of knowledge, requires that students have some experience with the kinds of thought and action that are typical of those fields. Teachers, therefore, should do the following: Start With Questions About Nature Sound teaching usually begins with questions and phenomena that are interesting and familiar to students, not with abstractions or phenomena outside their range of perception, understanding, or knowledge. Students need to get acquainted with the things around them—including devices, organisms, materials, shapes, and numbers—and to observe them, collect them, handle them, describe them, become puzzled by them, ask questions about them, argue about them, and then to try to find answers to their questions. Engage Students Actively Students need to have many and varied opportunities for collecting, sorting and cataloging; observing, note taking and sketching; interviewing, polling, and surveying; and using hand lenses, microscopes, thermometers, cameras, and other common instruments. They should dissect; measure, count, graph, and compute; explore the chemical properties of common substances; plant and cultivate; and systematically observe the......

...Science Technology company case After reviewing the financial forecast from Science Technology Company and Semiconductor industry market situation, I concluded that 30% annual growth is not feasible, optimistic growth forecast is 15% .Because world semiconductor shipment kept growing, but not just semiconductor market but electronic products market was also dominated large market by Japanese manufacturers. If the company carried on with the same profit/cost structure, the company’s ROA would be 5% more or less in next 5 years, EPS would be 0.44 – 0.97 and stock price would goes down to less $10 – less $20. I can assume that there is no additional stock issuance. As of 1984, the ROA is 5.6%, EPS 0.57 and stock price $13-$37. 1.

...The first lecture was about Science and Technology and he started off by saying that science came from society for the needs of the people meaning that everything Science and Technology invented or discovered is for the needs of society. Science and Technology both have their similarities and differences. One similarity of Science and Technology is that they were both created for knowledge while one difference would be in their usage. Science is for the understanding of the natural world and technology is the action of saving the natural world. Society however is the main predecessor of both science and technology because it is society that controls and guides the forms of science and technology. To conclude, Science and Technology are not necessarily related in the sense that they can be independent from one another and develop separately. Society is the determining factor for their possible connections and science and technology have become so intertwined that they have become related. The next lecture was on The Biography of Science and the video “The Story of Science – What is Out There?” was used as reference. This was basically about how early scientists or philosophers used their technology or invented technology to expand science and help society. The documentary mainly focused on philosophers being curious about what is outside the earth and its atmosphere and building telescopes to expand the vision of the naked eye. They studied the planets and how the planets......

...Science and Technology Essay 4 (250 words) Science and technology has become a debated topic in the society. On one hand, it is necessary for the modern life where other countries are continuously developing in the field of science and technology. It becomes very necessary for other countries too to grow in the same way to be strong and well developed like other countries for the future safety and security. It is science and technology which helps other weak countries to develop and be strong. We have to take support of science and technology forever to improve the way of life for the betterment of mankind. If we do not take the help of technologies such as computer, internet, electricity, etc we cannot be economically strong in the future and would be backward forever even we cannot survive in such a competitive and technological world. Advancement in the field of medical, agriculture, education, economy, sports, games, jobs, tourism, etc are the examples of science and technology. All such advancements show us that how both are equally beneficial for our life. We can see a clear difference in our life style while matching the ancient and modern way of life. High level of scientific and technological advancement in the field of medicine has made easy the treatment of various lethal diseases which was earlier not possible. It has helped a lot to the doctors to find effective ways to cure diseases through medicine or operations as well as research vaccines to cure diseases......
