Here we need only note that positive and negative emotions act as behavioral reinforcements. The pain caused by biting your tongue teaches you to chew carefully and avoid tissue damage. Bad tastes and bad smells reinforce the aversion to ingesting unhealthy foods. The pleasure caused by engaging in sex encourages procreation. The enjoyment of playing with our children, encourages parental investment and nurturing. Positive emotions encourage us to seek out states that increase our adaptive fitness. Negative emotions encourage us to avoid maladaptive states.

Recall that an expected stimulus is more accurately perceived when it is predictable. Accurate predictions help an organism to prepare to sidestep dangers and take advantage of opportunities. Since accurate predictions are of real benefit to an organism, it would be reasonable for psychological rewards and punishments to arise in response solely to the accuracy of the expectation. Following a snow storm, for example, I might predict that I will slip and fall on the sidewalk. In the event that I actually fall, the outcome will feel unpleasant, but the experience will be mixed with a certain satisfaction at having correctly anticipated the outcome. This fourth type of expection-related emotion might be dubbed the prediction response .

Psychological evidence in support of a prediction response is found in the work of Mandler (1975). The response is considered so important in the extant literature on expectation, that it is commonly referred to as the primary affect related to emotion (Olson, Roese Zanna, 1996).

Confirmation of expected outcomes generally induces a positive emotional response even if the expected outcome is bad. It is as though brains know not to shoot the messenger: accurate expectations are to be valued (and rewarded) even when the news is not good. That is, a person might experience a positive prediction response and a negative outcome response at the same time.

In summary, we have distinguished four different types of expectation-related emotions. Each type serves a different biological function. The purpose of imaginative responses is to motivate an organism to behave in ways that may maximize future benefits. The purpose of the tension response is to tailor arousal and attention to match the level of uncertainty and importance of the outcome. The purpose of the outcome response is the often-noted goal of all emotions: to provide positive and negative reinforcements related to the biological value of different states. The purpose of the prediction response is to provide positive or negative reinforcements related to forming accurate expectations. All of these goals are biologically valuable.

Informally, we might characterize the "feeling" components to these responses by posing four questions:

As noted earlier, predicting a future event actually entails two predictions: the what and the when . The predictability of the what and when can be entirely independent. In musical rhythms, for example, listeners can form a strong expectation that some sound will happen at a particular moment, even though they have little inkling of what sound will occur. In other circumstances, the listener will have a good idea of what to expect, but will be left wondering when the sound will happen.

Ahhh, the subtle racism of lowered expectations. I’m sorry but education is designed, or should be, to create the most prepared students possible. Universities should not be diploma factories or tools for social engineering. Identity politics should have no no bearing on these matters. The truth is, not everyone should get a degree and it’s also not inherently true that degrees should be handed out equally among all groups in proportion to their population or even enrollment. Sometimes it is best for the student to actually pursue other opportunities and not being able to pass Algebra 2 seems like a very good indication that this is the case and a relatively harmless way to weed out people who will likely fail before they go into too much debt. There is NO indication that these people who fail Algebra 2 would otherwise go on to graduate. Lowering standards so that everyone can pass is a good way to make diplomas even less valuable.

The dumbing down of America continues. This is why the rest of the world is excelling and we are falling behind. Math is hard, it’s supposed to be push-ups for the brain. There is a huge difference between people who understand math and those who don’t . Why stop at math, let’s ban foreign languages and reading and any other challenges free liberal arts degrees for everyone. Read some of the biographies of our founding fathers and memorable leaders sometime. Today’s average liberal arts college graduate couldn’t hold a candle to the scholars of times past.

They couldn’t perform to standard and were placed in remedial classes. if they don’t want to go through that process, show up at college with some real skills instead of a worthless high school diploma that you received through social promotion,

If students can’t pass a high school level course, why are they in college?

The picture at the top of the article is calculus……..

The same argument could be used for almost every college course. I have not been asked to write a thesis sentence since freshman English. I have not needed to know anything about world history, political science, geology, etc. Why not let everyone choose what they want to do for the rest of their life when they are 12 years old and then just teach them what they need for that profession? Because that is not … Read More

The same argument could be used for almost every college course. I have not been asked to write a thesis sentence since freshman English. I have not needed to know anything about world history, political science, geology, etc. Why not let everyone choose what they want to do for the rest of their life when they are 12 years old and then just teach them what they need for that profession? Because that is not the purpose of an education and very few people stay in the same field for their entire life. An education, especially a college education, provides a basis for learning throughout your entire life. The problem that the author poses at the end of the article should be solvable by an 8th grader. Why would you not expect a college student to solve it?

I would suggest that most degrees that don’t need an understanding of “intermediate algebra” aren’t worth the money required to obtain them. These students would be much better off becoming tradesmen (carpenters, plumbers, etc) although even they need to know basic mathematics. No wonder people expect to earn a living wage at a fast food restaurant. If they won’t put in the effort to do something that may be hard for them (algebra) why should anyone hire them for a meaningful job. I wouldn’t.

I see: The way to bridge the equity gap in math skills is to tell CSU students there is no gap, and that they don’t need algebra in the real world, then push them headfirst into the gap. That will make things equal.

Algebra is not intended to be used outside the classroom unless you are a STEM major. Algebra is intended to change the student’s thought process, in order to think in an abstract manner, which is antithetical to common sense.

Algebra is the foundation of basically everything after arithmetic.

Show me a statistics class that doesn’t contain any algebra and I’ll show you a statistics class that is nowhere near as “rigorous” as the author claims it to be.

The article is correct in that the polynomial solving techniques from intermediate algebra have no association with statistics. But that does not mean that every student is prepared for a college level statistics course. At our college, we teach pre-statistics that includes topics such as number sense, writing intervals in various forms and set operations to properly prepare students. Equation solving is restricted to determining a cut-off scores. Having said that, students also need to … Read More

6 Ways to Identify Your Most Profitable Customers

As we mentioned on Monday, if you already have some clients, it can be beneficial to find the most common characteristics across the most profitable of these. You can start to create a picture of who your ideal customer is.

Customers are not all equal. It is important for every small business to identify its most profitable customers. But not for the reasons you may think. Figuring out how profitable your customers are, can help you grow every facet of your company. You want to discover who your most profitable customers are. These won’t necessarily be the ones who spend most money either! Some of your customers who spend most money won’t be profitable, as they may have negotiated heavy discounts or might require more customer support. The most profitable can sometimes be the customers who spread the word about your company and act a little like brand ambassadors. Salesforce have their MVP ( Most Valuable Player ) program, where they reward contributors within the Salesforce community for their expertise, leadership and most importantly for Salesforce, their advocacy.

So how can you get started? The following are a list of six of the most important ways to identify your most profitable customers, those that drive value, and don’t detract at the same time.

You should get to know your ten best customers as soon as possible. Perform an analysis of your customer base, and find out who is providing you with the most profits. Once this discovery is made, it is important you don’t become complacent. By continually focusing on the same ten customers you may miss the point where they lose profitability and a new ten emerge. Therefore, it is important to continuously reassess your customer base. That way you can have an up to date ‘A list’of clients!

You can now manage your sales pipeline within your CRM to predict future revenue. It is possible to see which customers are your most profitable and loyal.

It makes sense for small companies to chase after the big accounts, in order to get big contracts with long duration. However, a company should analyse their numbers and find out where their real revenue is coming from. If the most profitable sector is indeed these large clients, then these should continue to be the target. However, in many cases, a larger number of smaller clients drives business and produces continuous revenue. Once identified, you can align your strategy to focus on these smaller clients, to maximize revenue. Of course, it can still be important to go after the big fish.
