# A New Concept of Learning How To Code

For the past couple of days I have spent my time working on final exams for the children to make sure that they are learning the concepts they need to know for the upcoming year! Of course, final exams are not until June and the hardest part is putting them together in one file.

In the midst, of doing this I have found something that peaks my interest. Learning how to code. It is an interesting thing to learn and eventually the children will learn how to do these concepts that I am learning right now.

It was interesting that if you put the wrong type of symbol in the JavaScript that you could not accomplish the goal intended. Of course, by finishing the first lesson I was able to make my name bounce like bubbles and return back into the original shape.

var myName = “Tammy Hopkinson MBA”;

var red = [0, 100, 63];
var orange = [40, 100, 60];
var green = [75, 100, 40];
var blue = [196, 77, 55];
var purple = [280, 50, 60];
var letterColors = [red, orange, green, blue, purple];

drawName(myName, letterColors);

if(10 < 3)
{
bubbleShape = ‘square’;
}
else
{
bubbleShape = ‘circle’;
}

bounceBubbles();

Now, it is something that I would love to learn more about and this means that I will have to divide my time even more than I am now. It is awesome to learn new things and experience something new.

There will be future endeavor’s that I will embark on with this new learning experience, and I will keep learning the new concepts so that when the children are starting to learn this I will be able to teach them by learning myself.

# Time Value of Money

Why is the time value of money concept important? In what quantitative decisions might the time value of money be used?

In business the time value of money is very important because it allows business’s to determine how much an investment will increase in value over a determined amount of time. The way that the stock market, and how the government is going these days many people are putting their money that they earn into 401k’s or IRA’s which over a period of time will calculate the value of their investment. There is a variety of investment tools that are out there to help people with investing their money in any time of investment. Many people choose the high interest rate that normally pays off in the long run if the investment is not touched. Many people have decisions to make regarding different positions within their life. Student loans, and financing a home use the time value of money. The interest rates have dropped since the financial meltdown. Many students have ended up with the lower interest rates. You have to have a clear understanding of the time value of money are able to better analyze the risks that are involved with the investments, and can make the money work for them instead of against them. This is something that I wish I understood a little better so that I can make the money work better for me instead of against me. Most companies use the time value of money to compare their investment alternatives in regards to profits, and earnings. These companies also use time value of money with leases, annuities, savings, mortgages, and loans. In order to make the right decisions for the company time value of money should be the top priority for any business to make solid financial decisions.

# How do you apply the time value of money concept to make decisions in your personal life?

You know that within the field that I am in right now I use time value of money everyday. When I go to work I make a goal for me to reach each shift on how much tips I want to make that day. It all depends on the type of service that I give to my customer’s. If I do not treat my customer’s like they are number one on my checklist, and make sure that they have everything that they possibly need for their meal I will not make any money. If I do not walk around with a smile on my face this is going to hurt my pocket as well. People do not want to come in and see their server in a bad mood or not smiling. Many people want to see an outgoing person with a great personality, and they want to make sure that their food comes out the way that the customer wants it. If I do not make the goal that I have set out then I have not provided the right service to these customer’s. The weekends are totally different because the goals are set a little higher in order for me to make the budget that I have set out. The way that I use time value of money within this daily agenda through the week my goal is to make \$40.00 per shift. On the weekends I set a goal of \$60.00 per shift and normally you will go over the goal. We use time value of money in everything that we do in our daily lives to set goals for our children’s education, or buying a new car, buying a house, and anything else that we do. There are many ways to use the time value of money in quantitative reasoning in business by weighing the pros and cons of everything that you do now and in the future. Even when I have my own business I will set much higher goals on the amount of money that I want to earn within that day.

# Simultaneous equations

Simultaneous equations are a set of equations containing multiple variables. What are two examples of how simultaneous equations are used in business? What are some of the different ways you can satisfy these equations?

When we think about simultaneous equations we find that they are not used just to find the points on any type of given graph that is given to you by your algebra teacher but we can also use the same type of equations within the business world as well as in the classroom. A visualization of the graph is helpful to find the information that is needed and to work the equation out. This will allow the business to see the growth, shrinkage, depletion, losses, and other various business methods that will occur within the company on a regular basis. A company or business might use these types of graphs to see how well a product is doing compared to other products on the same product line. Flow charts and pie graphs help the business to see what is doing the best and what products are not doing anything at all.

Company’s will use this information to forecast scenarios to make sure that the company is going to be a success with those types of products. Keeping track of the trends within the business world is a timely task but it has to be done in order to keep up with the growing trends with the business world today. Information can be another simultaneous equation within the business world because the company can predict what the product or service trends are within the global, local, or any other type of specific market. A company that I worked for would use the sales from last year and try and make it over those sales this year. Sometimes this would work out and sometimes it would not because you do not know how many customer’s are going to come into your establishment today but it is a goal for the business to try and beat and increase sales on any given day. Like all business’s they use these equations to predict the amount of sales that they would be doing.
