I teach information technology (IT) courses including programming courses. One of the programming languages I teach is C, and one of the first constructs the students need learn is the if-else construct, which is a selection-type programming structure. Selections allow the program to branch in different directions based on a condition, which usually has to […]
This lesson is about how basic critical thinking works, and how important it is when discussing issues that are controversial or personal or are otherwise disposed to unnecessarily heated discussions.

This document/blog provides information about decision making, specifically selections, e.g., if or if-else constructs, used in C-based programming languages. It explains the logical (true/false) decision making process, and has examples of flow charts, code, output, and truth tables. It discusses conditional statements, branching, if and if-else constructs, comparative operators, e.g., <, >, <=, >=, etc., […]
During the early Middle Ages agricultural production soared as the 3-Field System was emplaced. The 3-Fieldy System was far more efficient than traditional crop rotation as it allowed for the cultivation of 66% of the land instead of only 50% and allowed for two growing seasons instead of one. Not only did this system increase […]
