For this assignment we are to research two recently elected judges in our county or state. I have chosen Judge James K. Roberson and Judge David Thomas Lambeth, Jr. both judges are current District Courts Judges for the Judicial District 15A for Alamance County, North Carolina. “The required education to become a District Court Judge you must have a bachelor’s degree followed by a degree of Juris Doctor (J.D.).” (http://education-portal.com/articles/District-Court_Judge, 2013) “Years of experience as a practicing attorney make it possible for the prospective District Court Judge to be considered for appointment.” (http://judgepedia.org, 2013) The judges must also meet the requirements from the N.C. State Bar Association as they are outlined below. According to the North Carolina Bar Association the requirements for an attorney being admitted to the N.C. Bar, they have to first comply with the rules of the Bar Association as well as with the state. As education needed to be accepted to the N.C. Bar each applicant “must have satisfactorily completed the academic work required for admission to a law school approved by the Council of the N.C. State Bar.” (www.ncble.org, 2013) In order to becoming licensed by the Board to practice law in the State of North Carolina, a general applicant shall:

...Week four assignment MAT221: introduction to algebra Thurman Solana July 7, 2013 Below we will go through a few equations for this week’s assignment. I will show my knowledge of how to properly find the correct answers to each problem. As well as showing my knowledge of the words: Like terms FOIL Descending Order Dividend and Divisor. Compound semiannually On page 304 problem #90 states “P dollars is invested at annual interest rates r for one year. If the interest rate is compounded semiannually then the polynomial p(1+r2) represents the value of investment after one year. Rewrite the problem without the equation.”(Algebra) For the first equation p will stand for 200 and r will stand for 10%. First I need to turn the interest rate into a decimal. 10%=0.1. Now I can rewrite the equation.2001+0.122. Now that I have my equation written out I can start to solve. I start by dividing 0.1 by 2 to get 0.05. Now I can rewrite 2001+0.052. First I add the 1 and 0.05 giving me 1.05 to square. Any number times itself is called squaring. So now we square (1.05)*(1.05)=(1.1025). Again we rewrite our equation 200*1.1025=220.5. Now we can remove the parentheses leaving us with an answer of 220.5. The answer for this first part of 2001+0.0122=220.5. Second Part On this second part let p stand for 5670 and r will stand for 3.5%. Again I start by turning my percentage into a decimal 3.5%=0.035. Now that we have our decimal we can write out our equation......

...Logical Concepts an overview What is logic? • Logic is the science of reasoning, • which is to say: the academic discipline that investigates reasoning. What is reasoning? • reasoning is inferring (deducing) • to infer is to draw conclusions (output) from a premise or set of premises (input). An Example of Reasoning You see smoke And you infer That there is fire (input) (deduce) (output) Another example of Reasoning You count 19 people in a group; which originally had 20 people in it; and you infer that someone is missing (input) (input) (deduce) (output) The Basic Idea Logic evaluates reasoning in terms of arguments. What is an argument? • The word “argument” can mean many different things depending on the context. • But for the purposes of logic, the term “argument” means something very specific: What is an argument? • an argument is a collection of statements, one of which is designated as the conclusion, and the remainder of which are designated as the premises. • Important note: premises are always intended to provide support or evidence for the conclusion, but they don't always succeed. (It’s still an argument either way.) What is a statement? • A statement is a declarative sentence, • i.e., a sentence that is capable of being true or false. • For example: The door is closed. • Other kinds of sentence are not capable of being true or false: • Interrogative sentences are inquiries for information: Is the......

...Part one of the video opens up by telling viewers that Aristotle is credited with formalizing logic as a discipline. Viewers are directed to the aspect of what arguments are in the area of logic. Arguments are not heated exchanges or personal assaults, but however they are a group of statements. Statements are sentences capable of being true or false. An example of a statement is saying, “All cats are vicious animals.” The next topic that is brought up in part one of the video is the subject of inference. Inference is the reasoning process of an argument. Inference can be explicit (using premise and/or conclusion indicator words) and implicit (the reader has to catch the inference). Finally the video concludes with the point that there are four non-inferences commonly mistaken for arguments these are: advice, assertion, reports, and explanations. Part two of the formal logic video is the topic of inference. As stated in the early video inference is the reasoning process of an argument. Viewers are now introduced with the topic of deductive and inductive arguments. A deductive argument means that there is no possibility of the conclusion being false when the premises are true. Inductive arguments mean that the premises merely make the conclusion likely (conclusion “goes beyond” the premises). Lastly inductive forms are arguments based on signs, prediction, and generalization just to name a few. Part three of the video talks about validity, strength, soundness, and......

...1.2.1.AK Combinational Logic Design Introduction Combinational and sequential logic are the fundamental building blocks of digital electronics. Combinational logic, which is sometimes referred to as "combinatorial logic”, is characterized by its output being a function of the current input value. A variety of different logic gates can be used to implement combinational logic circuits. Many of these gates will be studied in future units of this course. In this introductory unit, we will limit our designs to AND, OR, and INVERTER gates for the sake of simplicity. In this activity you will use the Circuit Design Software (CDS) to build and test your first combinational logic circuits. Equipment * Circuit Design Software (CDS) Procedure Now it’s time for you to implement your first AOI combinational logic circuit. The circuit that we will use for this purpose is a Car Safety Buzzer design.The design specifications are as follows: The buzzer is on whenever the door is open or when the key is in the ignition and the seat belt is not buckled. 1. Create a table that describes these design specification in terms of “highs” (1) and “lows” (0). This is when the sensor or indicator is active or not active. Seat Belt | 0 = SEAT BELT NOT BUCKLED | | 1 = SEAT BELT BUCKLED | Key | 0 = KEY NOT IN THE IGNITION | | 1 = KEY IN THE IGNITION | Door | 0 = DOOR IS NOT OPEN | | 1 = DOOR IS OPEN | Buzzer | 0 = BUZZER is OFF | | 1 = BUZZER is ON | 2.......

...What is Algebra? Algebra is a branch of mathematics that uses mathematical statements to describe relationships between things that vary over time. These variables include things like the relationship between supply of an object and its price. When we use a mathematical statement to describe a relationship, we often use letters to represent the quantity that varies, sisnce it is not a fixed amount. These letters and symbols are referred to as variables. (See the Appendix One for a brief review of constants and variables.) The mathematical statements that describe relationships are expressed using algebraic terms, expressions, or equations (mathematical statements containing letters or symbols to represent numbers). Before we use algebra to find information about these kinds of relationships, it is important to first cover some basic terminology. In this unit we will first define terms, expressions, and equations. In the remaining units in this book we will review how to work with algebraic expressions, solve equations, and how to construct algebraic equations that describe a relationship. We will also introduce the notation used in algebra as we move through this unit. History of algebra The history of algebra began in ancient Egypt and Babylon, where people learned to solve linear (ax = b) and quadratic (ax2 + bx = c) equations, as well as indeterminate equations such as x2 + y2 = z2, whereby several unknowns are involved. The ancient Babylonians solved......

... Logic Application After evaluating the game of “Guess your Card”, I assume that my cards could only be 4, 5, and 9. I came up with this logic by starting with Andy. I add all three numbers together from each player. Andy has the cards of 1, 3, and 7 with a sum of 11. Belle has the cards 3, 4, and 7 with a sum of 14, and Carol has the cards 4, 6 and 8 with a sum of 18. Since each player have a different sum I took the players with the highest sum which is Belle and Carol to see which player cards would add up with my cards. Next, Belle draw the question card, “of the five odd numbers”, how many different odd numbers do you see? She answer all of them. Only because the only odd numbers she see is from Andy and Carol which are 1, 3, and 7. That's how I came up with the numbers of 5 and 9. I then, add together 5 and 9 which is 14, let's not forget in the beginning I said the sums must add up to either 14 or 18. Since 5+9=14, and the smallest card is 1 so my cards must add up to more than 14. The sum of my cards must be 18. In order for me to find out what is my final card I must subtract 18 from 9 and 5 which gives me 4. You can also see why Andy knew what cards he had. He realize that the only odd numbers Belle could see from Carol and myself were 5 and 9, but yet she claim she could see all five odd numbers. So the remaining three: 1, 3 and 7 must have come from Andy himself. That's how he figure out what he had. The logic of......

...History of algebra The history of algebra began in ancient Egypt and Babylon, where people learned to solve linear (ax = b) and quadratic (ax2 + bx = c) equations, as well as indeterminate equations such as x2 + y2 = z2, whereby several unknowns are involved. The ancient Babylonians solved arbitrary quadratic equations by essentially the same procedures taught today. They also could solve some indeterminate equations. The Alexandrian mathematicians Hero of Alexandria and Diophantus continued the traditions of Egypt and Babylon, but Diophantus's book Arithmetica is on a much higher level and gives many surprising solutions to difficult indeterminate equations. This ancient knowledge of solutions of equations in turn found a home early in the Islamic world, where it was known as the "science of restoration and balancing." (The Arabic word for restoration, al-jabru,is the root of the word algebra.) In the 9th century, the Arab mathematician al-Khwarizmi wrote one of the first Arabic algebras, a systematic exposé of the basic theory of equations, with both examples and proofs. By the end of the 9th century, the Egyptian mathematician Abu Kamil had stated and proved the basic laws and identities of algebra and solved such complicated problems as finding x, y, and z such that x + y + z = 10, x2 + y2 = z2, and xz = y2. Ancient civilizations wrote out algebraic expressions using only occasional abbreviations, but by medieval times Islamic mathematicians were able to talk about......
