You have some players and coaches press the line more than others. You want to get as close to the cliff's edge, but don't fall over. And if you fall over the cliff, there's consequences, you face discipline. The Patriots paid a fine and forfeited a first-round draft choice after the excesses of Spygate, which came during the season.
If they are ultimately found culpable in Deflategate — and the NFL said its investigation is expected to take weeks — penalties could be harsher this time around. History plays into that, too. Videotaping an opponent's signals is illegal, but trying to steal them in some other ways isn't. If you can get an edge but not compromise the integrity, hey, you're going to try to get an edge. ESPN analyst Marty Hurney, former general manager of the Carolina Panthers, says he believes most teams trying to get an edge take care to stay inside the rules.
Every GM and coach, your job is to win as many games as you can within the rules. And sometimes if you break a rule, you address it and try to make sure that doesn't happen again. Every team knows what the rules are and where the line is. Nobody's perfect in this league. It does happen. You address that. Miami Dolphins cornerback Bent Grimes figures air pressure and videotaped signals have little to do with winning games anyway. I see why somebody would be upset about it.
But if you're just asking me, I don't think it makes that much of a difference. When Warner was quarterbacking the Rams in their "Greatest Show on Turf" era, he ran a play worthy of an Oscar, backing away from center and unsnapping his chin strap as he trudged toward the sideline, as if ready to call a timeout. That lulled the San Francisco 49ers defense just as running back Marshall Faulk took a direct snap and ran for a first down that led to a touchdown a few days before Christmas in It's within the legal boundaries of things, but I still wrestle with that.
Warner did think about that play when the Patriots ran the unusual formation that flummoxed the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round. It's legal and all of that," he says. Warner plays pickup basketball these days.
Geophysicists also use a logarithmic scale. An earthquake that measures a 7 on the Richter scale clocks in at 10 7 for seismic energy while an earthquake measuring an 8 represents 10 8 for seismic energy. This means the second earthquake is 10 times more powerful than the first.
Sometimes scientists must use exceptionally large or small numbers. Scientific notation relies on exponents to write these numbers in a simpler way. For example, the large number 21, is 2. This literally means 2. To translate scientific notation into standard notation, you should move the decimal to the right the number of places indicated by the exponent.
In the same way, the small number. When the exponent is negative, you should move the decimal to the left to find the number in standard notation. One of the most common real world applications of exponents involves taking measurements and calculating multi-dimensional quantities. Area is the measure of space in two dimensions length x width , so you always measure it in square units like square feet or square meters.
For instance, when you calculate the area of a garden bed using feet, you should provide the solution in square feet or ft 2 using an exponent. Similarly, volume is the measure of space in three dimensions length x width x height , so you always measure it in cubic units like cubic feet or cubic meters. For example, if you wanted to calculate the volume of a greenhouse, you would provide the answer in cubic feet or ft 3 using an exponent.
While the concept of exponents can seem tricky at first, it is simple to see examples of exponents in the world around you.
Students often misinterpret negative exponent notation and if this is cleared up, in the beginning, a lot of frustration and time can be saved. There are often a lot of misconceptions about understanding and teaching negative exponents. Before we begin looking at the solutions, let's take a look at the common problems. Students love to create or rework rules for negative exponents. Be aware that you may find negative signs in the strangest of places.
Just take the reciprocal can be a real answer later, but first students must understand the why. Why does this work and how can I know this rule? We have all seen students get done with the homework super quick, but then bomb the test. Students, to retain these rules, must have an understanding of why and how they work in a way that works for them.
Most students will want to see several different ways of looking at this concept. But one thing is for sure, if we can connect this learning for them between the examples, they will develop a solid understanding of the concepts with negative exponents. I like to give the students this table and ask some questions. What do exponents mean? What is happening?
Can this pattern continue? Are we still multiplying? I like to do this a few times, to allow all of the students to have a chance to see the patterns. I like the idea of giving the students something they can picture to work within their minds.
For example, thinking of cake, as we go into the negative exponents we get a fractional part of the cake, we do not get a negative cake. And while seeing the pattern does help, they also need to understand the rules. At this time we are ready to put it all together. Depending on your class and their level of understanding, you may need to review the exponential rules. Specifically, they need a good understanding of the product rule and the quotient rule.
I find it best to plug in positive numbers and explore the possibilities. The students will begin to come up with "shortcuts. It builds on the exponent rules. I would stop talking at the arrow and see where the students take the conversation. I bet it would give you a lot of insight into their understanding. This video moves very fast, but for your students that are intrigued, this video will motivate and challenge them.
The negative exponents begin around minute 7, but you need the whole video to understand the vocabulary. I can see this working for some and not so much for others, but I enjoyed it, and I hope you get some additional ideas from it as I did. I suggest watching this to be sure it is a good fit for your class. While it may take more time up front to ensure that students understand this concept, in the long run, it will save you time. The ability to see patterns and complete the calculations without help will be priceless.
I used to hate the Monday after the Super Bowl. The kids were tired, I was tired, and it felt like a horrible situation of force-feeding information to the unwilling. So I began looking for a lesson that would keep them engaged. And I found it! Now, many of you know I am a huge fan of the lessons at Yummy Math. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
