    Confidence interval - Coop Report, Need Help

    I basically have all my stats together, and I am near the end I just need someone to tell me if my approach makes sense. From my planned data I got a standard deviation. This was a low number due to my large sample size 2062, and thus was good for predicting a mean for a similar region. (My...

    H.S. Senior Year Blues (HELP!)

    I don't know much about school in the states. All I would say is don't get to caught up on prestige... of course within limits, obviously you would go to Harvard or MIT. Once you get into undergrad you realize to a certain degree they are all very similar, and the institution where you study...

    Engineer - Partial Differential Equations

    OK thanks, I am going to try and take this course. I am really interested in the mathematical demanding aspect of engineering. I just need to figure out how to squeeze it in. That's the problem with engineering. Thanks all for the input.

    No, definitely do not lie. What you have to realize is these people will not hire you, not because of you abilities, but the fact that you may not be trustworthy. If you lie on you application that is another strike against you. Plus you don't fill out applications when you apply for real...

    Hey all, I want to download a program so I can type an add mathematical formulas, extract them as images and use them in a presentation. I download MiKTeX but am EXTREMELY confused with all these pakages etc, I don't even know how to open the program so I can start typing. I found some math...

    Confidence interval - Coop Report, Need Help

    Wow, this is going to work unbelievably well. Thanks a million for all the help, I just needed a bit of direction. Now would the df apply to the 15 regions? Or would it apply to the total number of read points? John.

    Confidence interval - Coop Report, Need Help

    Alright perfect, this is starting to shape up. By t-test you mean student t distribution correct? What is the correct way of taking my data for planned routes and weighting it to calculate the standard deviations. Some regions have 260 reads and some have a little as 30. I need to weight the...

    Engineer - Partial Differential Equations

    Actually I have taken one fluid dynamics course already, don't remember much PDE, only regular DE. Maybe that is left for the second part of the course. Basically my University doesn't think I need it, that's why I don't have the course, but like you guys I am thinking it is important. Maybe...

    Physics Topic Rejected - Help!

    ON a side note you might need to look into modeling and similtitude if you plan on applying it on a large scale. It is not too difficult of a concept from the early stages of it that I have studied.

    Engineer - Partial Differential Equations

    Mechanical Engineering with an Automotive Option, however I am leaning towards a Materials Option instead. BTW I have taken a numerical analysis course in which we started some very basic FEA methods. I found it interesting... I know special functions touches this subject somewhat. Is...

    Programs Becoming Software Engineer/Network Administrator with 2 minor felonies

    OK after a quick search not so easy in the US. The president or in some cases governer must grant a pardon. But it is possible if you put some work into it, you have a strong case and would be stupid not to do everything in your power to get this behind you.

    Pardon Services Hint... I know in Canada we have something called pardon services. A few years after your felony you can approach this government branch and get a pardon, basically they will erase it from your record. Especially since you are getting educated and are on track to a good life I...

    Confidence interval - Coop Report, Need Help

    I forgot to add, that I have driven every single route planned during, and I do have data for these routes. My lack of data is in the unplanned driving of routes. Maybe that could add another element to this? Is there a way I could get a standard deviation by looking at the seperate 15...

    Confidence interval - Coop Report, Need Help

    Hi, thanks for the reply. So far I have only taken 1 introductory stats course, so I am not familiar with what you have posted. Though if it is a possible solution to my problem I can learn it. I am on my last week so I do not have time to drive these routes, maybe I could assemble another...

    Engineer - Partial Differential Equations

    Hi, my engineering degree does not require a partial differential course. However, one of my calculus professors suggested it may be important when applying for a masters. I was thinking of taking this course and maybe special functions.... would it really be useful? It would be a lot of...

    Doctorate in engineering?

    A Ph.D in engineering won't limit you to teaching; this is a myth. Do a job search for engineering jobs, there is plenty of demand for Applied Sciences Ph.D. for high level engineering jobs. Do not write it off as such, I am saying this because I am undergrad mech. eng. and I want to certainly...

    Stop thinking it looks bad, it doesn't. It is just that your time, energy and money could be better spent on a graduate degree. Decide what you want, take electives in your interests.

    Confidence interval - Coop Report, Need Help

    Hi, I am an 3rd engineering student working on my coop report. My job was to design routes for survey work, and come up with figures of potential time savings if this was to be done on a grand scale. The sites are divided into 15 regions (by geography) but are not in any particular order...
