    "Uy, huling 'bye, sir' ko na pala ito…" 

    I said that after the last meeting but Sir replied with “hala, magkikita pa ulit tayo di pa ito ang last day.”

    Weeks after, the “this is not yet the last day” day turned out to be the last for real.
    Pizza is gone for good. HAHAHAHAHA JUST KIDDING (mas nasad pa over pizza joke lang sir hehe)

    RREF had the most impact para sa akin. I think I won’t be able to forget it for at least the next academic year hahahahaha I spent a lot of time, a lot of paper, and a lot of patience while practicing it. *reminisces* aaah good old times…

    All in all, I think CS 130 was the “subject na pwede ka mag feeling confident pagpasok sa class dahil alam mong hindi ka papasok sa pressure cooker kundi sa isang happy place” hahahaha

    To Sir,
    Thank you very much po! You give me confidence even if I am just starting to learn or to get a feel of a concept in ways like group works, ice breakers, other fun activities, Running Man!!! Hahaha

    On a more serious note, CS 130 was hard but I appreciate your effort po of helping us understand topics kahit hindi nagdadive ng malalim on each one. I like how you are hands on, thank you for that, Sir – kayo lang yung hands on na hindi nakakapressure but nakaka encourage pa nga na prof ko so far. Sir nood ka lang ng Running Man para happy lagi char hahahaha pantanggal streeess ganern.

    To my classmates,
    Thank you for attending classes with me, for talking to me and answering my questions kahit hindi naman tayo formally friends, for having fun on activities with me, for understanding me and my side comments na napapalakas minsan (baka naingayan na kayo hahahahuhu)… let’s be friends! 😀

    Thankful ako for this course. I hope, and I know, na hindi lang ako ang nag enjoy sa class! Woohoo!!!

    CS 130 1617B 🙂

    P.S. random pictures taken sa class hahaha yas pabida jk hahaha sir gusto ko lang po makita niyo self niyo kapag nagtuturo tulad ng pagcapture niyo ng exam moments namin, char

    P.P.S. Sir, nawa po ay checkan ninyo ang aking mga journal entry huhu thank you po :’D

    Let's La-plus or La-minus Road Bumps! 

    “Traffic engineering is the application of Laplace Transform to the quantification of speed control in the modelling of road bumps with hollow rectangular shape.”

    The main use of road bumps in a road network is to calm speedy vehicles in a physical form. It’s main goal is to break the speed of vehicles in order to prevent over-speeding, and accidents as well. The geometry of road bumps are classified according to their shapes. For the study that I used as my reference, the method they made models the vehicle as the classical one-degree-of-freedom system whose base follows the road profile, approximated by Laplace Transform. Then, a traditional vibration analysis is carried out and the isolation factor is calculated.

    Try to read my reference from researchgate.net to learn more 😀 (hahahahuhu feel ko di ko maexplain ng maayos yung technical part pero ayun nga, ginagamit nila Laplace transform para makita yung effective distance between two road bumps, and para rin makatulong in controlling the speed of vehicles, reduce noise pollution due to vehicle movement and sudden break application, and maintain minimum impact on the vehicles).

    hehe :>

    No Mathe-mat-ics Required 

    What’s amazing is that even without advanced knowledge with mathematics, and without drawing plans on paper, weavers are able to create complex geometric designs by hand. These complex geometric designs depicts advanced levels of geometry and algebra using a combination of a weaving and counting technique.

    Different finite designs and repeating patterns occurring in different Philippine ethnic communities are being studied today through the analysis of their symmetry groups and colored symmetrical structures.

    Repeated patterns are basic discrete design elements and these symmetrical patterns (called a motif) are not only seen in mats, blankets, etc., it can be seen in our very own sablay!

    A simple example of some of the symmetries in sablay: see those blue diamonds?  They are moving along a line. This kind of symmetry is called “translation” – a shift of the motif by a given distance in a line.

    a/n: ang sayaaaa kaso di ko na kaya i-name yung ibang weave patterns/ symmetries sa sablay :(((

    “King – Man + Woman = ?” 

           A word vector is a continuous word representation wherein the vector’s weight is distributed across various elements. So, instead of having a one-to-one mapping between a vector element and a word, the representation of a word is spread across all of the elements in the vector, and each element in the vector contributes to the definition of many words. These vectors somehow represent the “meaning” of a word.


           These vectors are good in answering analogies like man:woman as uncle:____ (aunt) by using a simple vector offset method based on cosine distance. With this, we can answer “King – Man + Woman = ?” question and arrive at the result “Queen”.  This shows that using a word offset technique where simple algebraic operations are performed on the word vectors results in a vector that is closest to the vector representation of the word “Queen”. 

    Vectors for King, Man, Queen, & Woman:

    The result of the vector composition King – Man + Woman = ?

           Word vectors with such semantic relationships could be used to improve many existing Natural Language Processing applications, such as machine translation, information retrieval and question answering systems, and may enable other future applications yet to be invented.


    The amazing power of word vectors

    a/n: ang cool niya hehe :>

    I am Eunice Angel Dela Cruz Cruz 😀

    When I enrolled for this course, I just thought, “hhmmm mahal na mahal yata ako ng math, ayaw akong pakawalan.” (and as if naman we’d part ways any sooner hehe)

    I don’t remember myself hating math, in fact, I think I am very open and excited when it’s math time. I remember how the challenge of solving math problems (kind of) trigger the “competitive” me. Until the 1st half of my high school life, I think it was good. But it just became more and more challenging (and my math teacher/s were just way too intimidating for me that I can’t ask them for help #shytype hahaha jk) that even though my competitiveness is triggered, it was overpowered by anxiety and nervousness that sometimes, I just can’t get over with.

    But truly, I do not hate math, I still find it interesting. I just need the right motivation and understanding as to where I’d be able to use all the things that math offers.

    I am at ease, as of the moment. But… I think once this week ends, I’d be eaten by panic and I won’t be as happy as I am right now because I won’t be able to do things that are not related to academics (a.k.a. no time for my hobbies). #haggardsemforever :< #verypessimistic hahahaha
