12 Dividing decimal numbers by moving the decimal point Doing division when decimal numbers are involved is the same as doing divisions involving whole numbers, with a few extra steps to take care of the decimal point. Either the number you are dividing into or the number you are dividing by, or both of them, may be a whole number or a decimal number. So, for example, you might want to do the following divisions:

Intelligent Agents for Distance Learning
Distance learning involves a lot of work of human assistants. These assistants need to be connected for answering student doubts and questions. Intelligent agents can do part of this repetitive work because they can observe students interacting with educational courses, detect learning troubles of these students, and then suggest them some way for overcoming those troubles. However, a design problem appears with this promised possibility: how to connect educational applications with these agents

1.011 Project Evaluation (MIT)
1.011 examines methodologies for evaluating civil engineering projects, which typically are large-scale, long-lived projects involving many economic, financial, social, and environmental factors. Topics covered include: basic techniques of engineering economics including net present value analysis, life-cycle costing, benefit-cost analysis, and other approaches to project evaluation; resource and cost estimation procedures appropriate for large-scale infrastructure systems; and incorporating ser
The Pulse of Scientific Freedom in the Age of Biotech Industry
A conversation with: Arpad Pusztai, John Losey, Tyrone Hayes, and Ignacio Chapela. Introduced by Michael Pollan. Moderated by Mark Dowie.
