Definition Of Math

First Definition:

 

The application of the study of numbers, quantity or space either as an abstract concept, or a field of study in real life, such as physics or engineering.

 

Second Definition:

 

The application of a set of man-made logical rules in the form of patterns to either fit as an abstract concept (either through a system, space or change)  or to contribute to a field of study in real life (through sciences or analytical purposes).

 

Where I Use It Most In:

Either in statistics or biomathematics, due to my study of biology and geography.

 

 

What Is Art TOK Grade 11

First Definition:

 

Art by common definition is the study or activity of creative wisdom and the produce of that wisdom. However, I also believe that art is a concept, it is the concept of how to express the wisdom into the form of aesthetics. It is a social construct as well, as its literal meaning and audience interpretation is important in shaping the formation of this produce.

It is a social construct as well, as its  audience interpretation is important in shaping the formation of this produce, as the bridge between audience and art is what defines art between plain object.

 

 

TOK Radar+Significance Of Research Question

Questions And Points On TOK Radar:

 

How does over skepticism affect how the world is perceived?

Is the scientific method truly the best way to help understand and research on the natural world?

What are the fundamental flaws of epistemology?

 

Significance:

“Is it inevitable that the historical development of the natural sciences has lead to us to our current understanding of the world?”

It is important to answer this question because it helps understand the importance and the role science has on the world and society, and hence allow us to make an informed judgement on what to do with science being in or lives. It also helps us view science from a new perspective.

 

Link Between RLS And KQ:

The link between the two are probably the words historical development and natural sciences. The shift from Miasma theory to Gene theory was based on a deeper understanding of the natural sciences. The shift was also caused by the historical development of our knowledge of science and it did shape a much better understanding of the world.

 

 

Ernest Tang Grade 11 Theory Of Knowledge Natural Science Defenition Sum Up Activity

Sum-Up Defenition Of Natural Sciences:

 

The study of the physical sciences that processes observed knowledge and the knowledge of physical things, such as biology, physics and chemistry, however, it doesn’t include social, abstract or theoretical sciences.

1.How has your definition or scope of Natural Sciences changed?

I understand the limitations of Natural Sciences and its function. I previously thought every single question could be considered a natural science question but now I understand many questions are not answerable fully by a Natural Science perspective.

2.What territories does the Natural Sciences try to map?

The Natural Sciences are fields of studies and understandings that aims to understands the natural world. It has certain fixed rules about the way the world functions but unlike other fields of studies, such as applied or social science, it does not have theories based on the knowledge itself.

3.What kind of “problems” is this “map” trying to solve?

The problems that it solves are the problems caused by the physical world. Other problems such as social problems, are not problems that this “map” is trying to solve.

4.What kinds of questions does the Natural Science provides answers to?

The questions Natural Sciences are to answer the problems that it has the ability to solve, those are questions that aim to understand how the world works and how things function.

What are the key aims of TOK?

The key aims of TOK is to act as a way to help students become aware of the interpretative nature of knowledge, including personal ideological biases – whether these biases are retained, revised or rejected. This will be achieved in a classroom environment with lectures, debates and other activities.

What is the map metaphor? (explanation on next slide)

Using Hong Kong MTR map as a metaphor to wether its a good scale and wether it provides the truth as to the metaphor of wether natural sciences provide absolute truth or is it a broken down version to make us understand the truth. In other words, this means the map is a simplification of the actual HK MTR geographical landscape but it allows us to understand it better, just like how knowledge does the same to complex issues.

Quote From Presentation To Describe Even More In Depth:

A useful metaphor for examining knowledge in TOK is a map. A map is a representation, or picture, of the world. It is necessarily simplified—indeed its power derives from this fact. Items not relevant to the particular purpose of the map are omitted. For example, one would not expect to see every tree and bush faithfully represented on a street map designed to aid navigation around a city—just the basic street plan will do. A city street map, however, is quite a different thing to a building plan of a house or the picture of a continent in an  atlas. So knowledge intended to explain one aspect of the world, say, its physical nature, might look really quite different to knowledge that is designed to explain, for example, the way human beings interact.

The power of maps is precisely this, that they are simplifications that allow us to gain understanding of the complexities of the world. From this point of view, perhaps maps are designed to solve certain problems, so the power of the map is, in part, derived from its ability to be applied to the kinds of questions that an AOK, or a specific discipline is trying to ‘solve’.

What are the strengths to knowledge being a simplification of the world?

The strengths of knowledge being a simplification of the world is that it allows people to understand the truth in a simple manner. It is important that it is simple because we are limited in our ability to perceive the truth. An example is the MTR map. It does not provide every detail of the geographical landscape of Hong Kong but it allows people to understand it better than if it would be one.

What are the weakness to knowledge being a simplification of the world?

It isn’t the truth and many fail to understand that it isn’t the truth and hence treat the simplification as the truth. Such example is the Water Cycle, it only explains natures’ contribution to the water cycle and not other human factors, hence most people learning that think nature is the only one in control of the water cycle and make reckless decisions due to that ignorance.

Will we ever have a full understanding of the real world?

We will never, wether it is simplified or not because there will always be mysteries to the questions we answer, hence continuing the cycle for the quest of knowledge and since infinite knowledge could never be reached, we will never reach a full understanding of the real world. Also, even if we manage to unravel all mysteries, everyone will perceive something in a different manner, hence creating a paradox where no matter what is done, there will be mysteries.
