The first order of business today was Algebra. I learned about graphing rational functions. Basically, a rational function is an equation of the form f(x) = p(x) / q(x), where p(x) and q(x) are polynomial functions, and q(x) /= 0. This seems pretty complex, but a rational function can be something as simple as C = 150/s.

 

Next up, Marine Biology. I learned about shallow subtidal communities. Good thing to know about them, they contain a lot of infaunal species, owing to the fact that the seafloor is blanketed with soft sediments.

 

Finally, English. We come to the conclusion of looking at ultimate reality in world religions, and frankly, thank god. I’ve been on the subject for a long time. So, what’s my conclusion? World religions on the topic of reality have very different views, a lot of which don’t work together. Some have absolute, all powerful gods. Some have limited, fallible gods. The nature of the world differs as well, with some interpretations saying that it was made, while others say it was transformed from some prior state of being.

It’s a very complicated issue, to say the least.
