Week Three: Absolute Value

“The absolute value of a real number is defined as the principal square root of the square of number.” Which means the absolute value of a real number is the square root of a squared number. The absolute value of  a number is its distance from zero (0) on a number line. This ignores the “+” […]

DNA and Protein Synthesis

DNA is made up of molecules called nucleotides. Each nucleotide contains a phosphate group, a sugar group and a nitrogen base. The four types of nitrogen bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C). The order of these bases is what determines DNA’s instructions, or genetic code. DNA has two purines and

Words to live by

You can’t spell CHAllenGE without Change I really like this quote mostly because its so true, a lot of the time when I am given a task for example homework and I have a lot sometimes I tend to give up. But then I think about how I want to go into medicine in the […]

  What is a neuron? A neuron is a basic unit of the brain, it is a specialized cell designed to pass on information to other nerve cells, muscle cells, or gland cells. Most neurons have a cell body, an axon, dendrites and a Merlyn Sheath. Axons transfer and carry signals to other neurons and […]

1.I had some trouble with finding the vertex 2.  y = 3×2 + x – 2 3. To find the vertex, I look at the coefficients a, b, and c. The formula for the vertex gives me: h = –b/2a = –(1)/2(3) = –1/6 Then I can find k by evaluating y at h = –1/6: k […]
