Human Sciences — Interpretation of Knowledge

What problems confront human scientists when trying to explain/interpret their data? The predominant problem that confronts human scientists when trying to explain or interpret their data is the different perspectives that are presented as well as different interpretations of data within the field of human sciences. Additionally, it is difficult to assess the validity of every argument, therefore human scientists find it challenging to construct a consensual conclusion for specific data. Furthermore, data is interchangeable, there is no constant trend or tendency, therefore human scientists find it difficult to conclude to a certain inference. What do the various explanations for the decrease in…

Inventions in Mathematical Nomenclature

How may the math nomenclature (system) that you use affect your understandings of maths? Every mathematical nomenclature system is different from one another, therefore each individual who uses these systems will absorb and receive a differing understanding on a mathematical principle. Some systems are able to be more beneficial compared to others, as each strategy has its own way of expressing information. Our perception on the ‘best’ math nomenclature system is clouded by our person experience. For example, the Mayans believed that their mathematical system was the best one, however, looking at it now, it seems that their system was very…

Mathematical Axioms

What are Mathematical Axioms? Mathematical axioms are mathematical theories that are constructed without any physical evidence or proof behind the statement. The field of mathematics is heavily dependent on mathematical axioms to develop and research information that can benefit us in some way. It is difficult to prove mathematical axioms as there is no real evidence to prove if it is reliable or not. Axioms also known as postulates are foundational elements that cannot be proven to be true, but are utilised to help justify other concepts. What is Mathematical Proof? Mathematical proof is either physical or theoretical evidence to help…

WOK’S in Dali

This image exhibits the cycle of ways of knowing utilised in analysing and interpreting art. In analysing Dali’s art, the first way of knowing used is sense perception, in order to observe and identify the different elements that are presented within the picture. The next way of knowing used is intuition because you use the elements retracted from the sense perception process and attempt to create conclusions or inferences on what those aspects could possibly represent. After intuition, the next way of knowing is reason. Attempting to justify and rationalise our conclusions or claims made about what the art’s intention is and what it means.

ART — Methodology

1. What is the Methodology behind the Lightsaber as a piece of Art? The lightsaber was inspired by defensive tools utilised in previous films, the director intended it to be an equipment for defence instead of offence, therefore decided to keep the design simple yet with technological advancements. The lightsaber was also a product of inspiration and imagination from the director, as he combined the old structure of fighting tools with the new special technological features. George Lucas had a romanticised idea on what the ideal ‘Jedi’ would appear like, he used his personal knowledge and individual preferences and implemented it…

ARTS — Scope & Application

Definition of Arts: Art is an abstract concept that primarily encompasses the elements of human creativity and social life, such as languages, literature and history. Arts can be separated into 3 main categories, one revolving around skill, whilst the other considers the thought process/intention and the soul. Art is normally the usage and application of creative skills and imagination, to which is put into both tangible and intangible objects. There is no definite definition of art, however, ‘good’ art is often generalised through an individual’s appeal to it, and whether it fulfils a certain purpose or criteria.

EXPERIENCE WEEK 2K17 — CAMBODIA

1. What is the highlight of your trip? Personally, I think the highlight of this trip was the ‘Tuk Tuk’ rides as well as having the opportunity to interact and socialise with others who are not necessarily in my grade. Another highlight of the trip was the trips to the night markets, despite the fact that the time for the night markets were fairly short, the amount of products that I was able to find was amazing, and also at a very good price. 2. What did you learn from this trip? I was able to learn about Cambodian culture and…

WOK’s, Language and Concept — Natural Sciences

Production of Knowledge: The three main ways of knowing in order to assist with the process of the production of knowledge is imagination, reason and faith. These three ways of knowing work together as a network to help us be able to develop new information and create it. Imagination is used in the production of knowledge as it requires provides inspiration to which sparks a thinking of an idea in order to think about a new concept. Reason is used to justify the statement being claimed or the scientific conclusion. Faith is used to give hope or trust into the statement being claimed…

Historical Development in Natural Sciences

What were five key events in the Historical Development of the Natural Science? 1. Trial and error method conducted by the preliterate society This methodology was the origin of many scientific discoveries known to this day.  2. Aristotle’s practical and theoretical natural philosophy This methodology was the starting point that triggered many individual’s curiosity about the natural world. It was the beginning of using logic and evidential substance to produce a scientific claim.   3. Invention of the Microscope Allowed scientists to observe certain aspects of different objects that can’t be reached within the human eye. 4. Discovery of Quantum physics A more theoretical…

Natural Sciences — Scientific Methodology

The quote written by Carl Sagan helps us further understand the concept and structure of the scientific method as it explains the fact that we should accept different perspective that challenge the scientific method as well as having an understanding that not all information produced from the scientific method is 100% reliable. It also provides a sense where we should be open to new ideas and also new concepts being developed through different individuals who carry other observations, but to also be aware that the scientific method should have a balance of contradictory attitudes. One being very open, the other…
