    Synthesis 

    Which topic/s in class made an impact to you? Why?

    • Matrices. A lot of topics revolved around this and it had a lot of practical applications in the field of Computer Science.

    If you can summarize this course in one word or sentence, what would it be?

    • Mathakit sa ulo. Kidding. If I were to summarize this course in a sentence, it would be: mathututo ka talaga, hindi lang ng Math kundi pati ng applications nya in real life. I just love how sir taught CS 130 because it made me appreciate the Mathematical concepts we learn in class. We were shown not only the concepts and practices in this class but also how it is related to solving real-world problems.

    What would be your parting message to the class

    • Thank you Sir Paul for making the topics relatively easier to learn and thank you for making the class fun and insightful.
    • Thank you ebribadi u dabest. Kapit lang. I believe in you.
    • HORAY!

    Molecool 

    There are molecular structures that have symmetry. Once certain transformation in three-dimensional space is carried out (symmetry operations), the molecules will look indistinguishable from its initial orientation. These operations may be performed along a line, a plane or a point (symmetry elements).

    Reflection (σ) – Symmetric in the plane

    Rotation (Cn) – Symmetric along an n-fold symmetry axis

    Inversion (i) – Symmetric through the inversion center

    Improper Rotation (Sn) – Symmetric through an improper axis ; Rotate 360/n degrees and reflect through the plane perpendicular to the axis

    Symmetry of molecules is helpful in group theory and this has some applications in chemistry. Isn’t it interesting to see that even small particles like these have symmetry?

    Hello, it’s me 

    What’s your name?
    Hello! My name is Lois Alexis Velasco. You may call me Lois (Lo-wis).

    What were your thoughts when you enrolled in this course?
    “I need to review past math lessons; baka nakalimutan ko na.”
    “Sana pumasa ako. Kailangan ko mag-aral nang mabuti. :))”
    “Si Sir Paul yung prof. Yey! =)”

    How comfortable are you with math?
    I’m a bit comfortable with math (but I’m not that good with calculus). I find math REALLY interesting and useful. As long as the topics were explained well (and it makes sense to me), I’d probably be fine with it. :))

    What’s your dominant feeling right now?
    Sleepy~~
