...ADD and its imitators Lekisha Wright is a happy six-year-old little girl who started school with great enthusiasm. At school, her teacher seated her in the last row of twenty children. After two weeks of school, the teacher remarked that Lekisha was not paying attention and could not fallow directions so she decided to make the mother come for a conference. The teacher suggested the mother to take Lekisha to a doctor and see if she has ADD. Fortunately, the doctor checked first Lekisha ‘s hearing and vision and sure enough the child had a moderate hearing loss in both ears. After a treatment, Lekisha’s hearing returned to normal. (Julian Stuart Haber) The American Psychiatric Association express in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that 3%-7% of school-aged children have ADD. The department of healt and human service states that the rates of ADHD diagnosis increased by 5.5% per year from 2003 to 2007. According to Julian Stuart Habers researched, 15% of children diagnose with ADD receive medical treatment and those can drain the learning, thinking and working ability. As we can see through those facts, more and more children are diagnosed with ADD, more and more children are being treated medically. But how many of them do really have ADD? How many of them are being misdiagnosed? A study at a center for child behavior and development in St. Louis stated that more then 30% of the children diagnosed with ADD did not meet the diagnostic criteria......

...ADD was first identified and studied in the early 1900's, although it wasn't called ADD back then. After World War I, researchers noted that children who had contracted encephalitis displayed a high incidence of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and conduct disorders. And in the 1940's, some soldiers who had experienced brain injuries were found to have behavioral disorders.1 It seemed clear that brain damage could cause hyperactivity. Other forms of brain insult have since been identified as causes of hyperactivity, including exposure to lead and other environmental toxins, as well as fetal exposure to drugs and alcohol. Once brain damage was identified as a cause of hyperactivity in certain patients, researchers assumed that all hyperactivity was caused by brain damage, even when no brain damage could be identified. That's why ADD was once called "minimal brain dysfunction." This is an important point to understand. It is because of this early association of brain injury and hyperactivity that ADD traits are still assumed by many to reflect a brain disorder. Researchers made a giant leap in logic: Because brain injury can lead to hyperactivity, they believed that all hyperactivity was caused by brain injury. We now know this is not true. In fact, hyperactivity is also associated with giftedness, but obviously we cannot say that all hyperactive children are gifted any more than we can say all hyperactive children have suffered brain injury. More recent studies......

Better still, I got to know about the importance of applying these moral values into our daily lives. The first moral value is to cooperate with other people. The strategies and solutions of the questions in this project work were discussed among me and a group of friends. This makes things easier and saved a lot of time. The management of time is also important to complete this project work. Other than this assignment, I have homework, extra co curricular activities and tuition classes to attend. Thus a good management of time is essential for me to complete this given task and not to disrupt my daily activities. Perseverance has taught me to be steady and persistent in doing something. In spite of many difficulties I faced throughout the whole procedure I learned that giving up is just not right solution. Obstacles and discouragement should be endured the course of action should be held on with unyielding determination to see obtain sweet fruit of success. I had also learned to appreciate the beauty of mathematics. Waxing eloquently on the basic importance of Mathematics in human life, Roger Bacon (1214-1294), an English Franciscan friar, philosopher,......

...ADD and Learning ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder is a learning disorder that can be in many different forms and affect many different people. ADD can also be described as ADHD which is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. ADD and ADHD are basically the same thing, the only difference is mainly terminology. The media has used ADD more commonly when describing the disorder. However, as stated above ADD and ADHD are one in the same. (ADDA) One of the most common symptoms of ADD is distract-ability. This can mean that the person can be easily taken away from a task that they are currently doing very easily. Anything seems to distract the person. So the person goes from one task to the next without finishing the one that they were previously working on. ADD sufferers may also be very impulsive. Impulsiveness is often characterized by be tempted to do things on emotions without thinking something through. Another major symptom of ADD is hyperactivity. Hyperactivity is characterized as being abnormally active. The person is constantly moving and tends to have problems sitting still.(ADDA) The DSM-IV states that some other more common specific symptoms of ADD include not paying close attention to details and making careless mistakes. The person can also seem to not be listening when being spoken to and cannot pay attention to a certain task for more than a short amount of time. The person may seem to be excessively moving around. For instance they can......

...Sara Feliciano I have chosen to write my topic paper on ADD/ADHD. There is a lot of controversy surrounding this topic, the treatments that are used as well as the side effects. I found several of the other topics interesting as well but I have had personal experience with ADD/ADHD and think it would be beneficial for myself to learn more on this topic. When I was younger I was diagnosed with ADD. I was put on a daily dose of Adderall. I had reactions to this medication that I considered very bad, though could have been a lot worse. The side effect that most concerned me was that my heart rate had sped up significantly and I was constantly scared that something would seriously happen to me. I also had a minor side effect where I would constantly chew and had to have gum or I was chewing the insides of my mouth. I only took the medication for a short time because of how badly it bothered me but later I found out that there are different types of medications and I was put on the wrong one. I should have been put on the non-stimulant form rather than the stimulant. My brother was also diagnosed with ADHD when he was younger. He was also put on medications though I don’t think he was put on the same one as I. He had a different reaction, one that if I understand correctly is quite common. He completely changed while he was on it. He would do nothing. He would just sit and stare. He did have an easier time completing and focusing on schoolwork but he was not......

...MATH 55 SOLUTION SET—SOLUTION SET #5 Note. Any typos or errors in this solution set should be reported to the GSI at isammis@math.berkeley.edu 4.1.8. How many diﬀerent three-letter initials with none of the letters repeated can people have. Solution. One has 26 choices for the ﬁrst initial, 25 for the second, and 24 for the third, for a total of (26)(25)(24) possible initials. 4.1.18. How many positive integers less than 1000 (a) are divisible by 7? (b) are divisible by 7 but not by 11? (c) are divisible by both 7 and 11? (d) are divisible by either 7 or 11? (e) are divisible by exactly one of 7 or 11? (f ) are divisible by neither 7 nor 11? (g) have distinct digits? (h) have distinct digits and are even? Solution. (a) Every 7th number is divisible by 7. Since 1000 = (7)(142) + 6, there are 142 multiples of seven less than 1000. (b) Every 77th number is divisible by 77. Since 1000 = (77)(12) + 76, there are 12 multiples of 77 less than 1000. We don’t want to count these, so there are 142 − 12 = 130 multiples of 7 but not 11 less than 1000. (c) We just ﬁgured this out to get (b)—there are 12. (d) Since 1000 = (11)(90) + 10, there are 90 multiples of 11 less than 1000. Now, if we add the 142 multiples of 7 to this, we get 232, but in doing this we’ve counted each multiple of 77 twice. We can correct for this by subtracting oﬀ the 12 items that we’ve counted twice. Thus, there are 232-12=220 positive integers less than 1000 divisible by 7 or 11. (e) If we want to exclude the......

...ADD is situational: in the same individual its expression may vary greatly from one circumstance to another. There are certain classes, for example, in which the ADD child may perform remarkably well, while in others she is scattered, unproductive, and perhaps disruptive. Teachers may conclude that the child is wilfully deciding when, or when not, to buckle down and work diligently. Many children with ADD are subjected to overt disapproval and public shaming in the classroom for behaviours they do not consciously choose. These children are not purposively inattentive or disobedient. There are emotional and neurophysiological forces at play that do the actual deciding for them. We shall examine them in due course. The second nearly ubiquitous characteristic of ADD is impulsiveness of word or deed, with poorly-controlled emotional reactivity. The adult or child with ADD can barely restrain himself from interrupting others, finds it a torture awaiting his turn in all manner of activities, and will often act or speak impulsively as if aforethought had never been invented. The consequences are predictably negative. One is forever trying to shut the barn door after the horse has bolted. "I want to control myself," a 33-year old man said at his first visit to my office, "but my mind won’t let me." The impulsiveness may express itself as impulse buying, the purchase of unneeded items on a sudden whim without regard for cost or consequence. "Impulse buying?", another man exclaimed......

...Compilation of Different Math Verbal Problems Number Problems: 1. Consecutive. The sum of two consecutive integers is 15. Find the numbers. Solution: I will represent the first number by "n". Then the second number has to be "n + 1". Their sum is then: n + (n + 1) = 15 2n + 1 = 15 2n = 14 n = The exercise did not ask me for the value of the variable n; it asked for the identity of two numbers. So my answer is not "n = 7"; the actual answer is: "The numbers are 7 and 8." 2. Consecutive Odd. The lengths of the sides of a triangle are consecutive odd numbers. What is the length of the longest side if the perimeter is 45? Solution: Let x = length of shortest side x + 2 = length of medium side x + 4 = length of longest side Plug in the values from the question and from a sketch. 45 = x + x + 2 + x + 4 Combine like terms 45 = 3x + 6 Isolate variable x 3x = 45 – 6 3x = 39 x =13 Check your answer 13 + 13 + 2 + 13 + 4 = 45 3. Consecutive Even. The product of two consecutive negative even integers is 24. Find the numbers. Solution: (n)(n + 2) = 24 n2 + 2n = 24 n2 + 2n – 24 = 0 (n + 6)(n – 4) = 0 Then the solutions are n = –6 and n = 4. Since the numbers I am looking for are negative, I can ignore the "4" and take n = –6. Then the next number is n + 2 = –4, and the answer is The numbers are –6 and –4. ...

...additional mathematics internal assessment [pic][pic] Title: To determine if the reaction time of an athlete is greater than the reaction time of a non athlete. Name of Candidate: Shamoy Cole Center #: 100033 Candidate #: 1000331331 Territory: Jamaica Teacher: Mr. Jarrett Acknowledgement I must first thank God the Lord God for blessing me with the knowledge, wisdom, strength and understanding in completing my Internal Assessment. I would also like to thank my teacher Mr. Leemore Jarrett who has been committed in his efforts to competently prepare me for this Mathematics examination. Last but not least, I would like to thank all my volunteers for their kindness in donating the time and require data that were fundamental in completing this assignment. Thanks to you all!!! Introduction This is a simple experiment to determine if the reaction time of an athlete is greater than the reaction time of a non athlete. This test uses the known properties of gravity to determine how long it takes a person to respond to the dropping of an object by measuring how far the object can fall before being caught. In this experiment the stimulus is visual (the dropping of a ruler) and the evidence of reaction is the catching of the ruler. The conclusion to be drawn will be done through careful analysis of simple statistical values to be completed from data collected. Research......
