I have been an instructor at the University of Phoenix in computer science
since 2002. I follow the "Socratic Method" of asking questions that help the students reach the concept on their own rather than spoon-feeding the information.
I hold a Math
Teaching Certificate for the state of New Jersey.
I have been working with software since 1964. My first job with computers was on the IBM 1401, which got its name because the first model had 1400 bytes of memory. Although the equipment was the size of a few large refrigerators, it had less processing capacity then the keyboard of a modern PC.
After graduation, I worked on what was probably the first computerized job network. The computer
was located in Bedford Stuyvesant and communicated with offices throughout New York City via 100 baud modems. The computer installation was also a training facility. Some politicians questioned the wisdom of putting a computer in an "unsafe neighborhood"; however, the facility was never robbed or vandalized. A nearby Government office had their guard dog stolen.
After the cutback in scientific programming
in 1971, I learned Cobol
in a hurry and switched to banking
and insurance. Except for a project computerizing gas-pumps, I did not get back into scientific software until I joined Telos in 1984. I have worked at Telos on automated electronic diagnostic equipment as well as communications. Telos, as part of their education program, subsidized my tuition for my MS in computer science
I have been living in Freehold, NJ (home of Bruce Springsteen) for the past 40 years. Fortunately, it has been renovated since the song, "nothing but the dead and dying," was written.

"Two-thirds of those who think seeding is a good idea have published papers about seeding reefs."
That means that 1/3 of those who think seeding is a good idea have not published papers about seeding reefs. There are six...
The time to drive from Denver to Boulder at 30 MPH takes D/30 hours, where D is the distance.
Similarly, the drive from Boulder to Denver at 45 MPH takes D/45 hours.
The round trip, therefore takes
D/30 + D/45 hours.
The LCD is 90, so we will...
Factoring is one method fro solving "y2+5y-6=0".
Another method is the quadratic formula:
y= -b ± √[b²-4ac]
In this equation, a=1; b=5; c=6 so
y= ½(-5 ± √[25 + 24] = ½(-5 ± 7)
So y = either...
