## LISTEN: Stellar IEB results for north Durban schools

Reddam House Umhlanga student, Yusuf Essop obtained an impressive 99 per cent for Mathematics. He was joined by Yizhuo Li (five distinctions) and Taylor Campbell (six distinctions). THE Independent Examinations Board (IEB) pass rate (98.92 per cent) has gone up from last year, said the board’s CEO Anne Oberholzer. A total of 11 514 full-time …

## Eigenvalues of the Adjoint of a Linear Map

In the following proposition we will see that the eigenvalues of \$T^*\$ are the complex conjugate eigenvalues of \$T\$. Proposition 1: Let \$V\$ be a finite-dimensional nonzero inner product spaces. Then \$lambda\$ is an eigenvalue of \$T\$ if and only if \$overline{lambda}\$ is an eigenvalue of \$T^*\$. Proof: We will prove the contrapositives to proposition …

## 74% Indian teachers bank on homework to assess students

BENGALURU: Despite several efforts by the government and schools to lessen the burden of homework, over 74.3% of Indian teachers still use “home assignments” as a top tool to assess students in every lesson, says the latest National Achievement Survey report for Classes 3, 5, and 8. Only 24.3% of teachers depend on project-based or …

## The Conjugate Transpose of a Matrix

We are about to look at an important theorem which will give us a relationship between a matrix that represents the linear transformation \$T\$ and a matrix that represents the adjoint of \$T\$, \$T^*\$. Before we look at this though, we will need to get a brief definition out of the way in defining a …

## Putting Science and Mathematics development at the top – KuenselOnline

Science and Mathematics are our future. Their development will play a critical role in shaping our nation’s success. It is in this backdrop that the education ministry’s decision to establish a premier school for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the country is highly appreciated. Mathematics and Science were never very popular among Bhutanese students and …

## The Matrix of the Adjoint of a Linear Map

Recall from the The Conjugate Transpose of a Matrix page that if \$A\$ is an \$m times n\$ matrix then the conjugate transpose of \$A\$ is the matrix obtained by taking the complex conjugate of each entry in \$A\$ and then transposing \$A\$. Now let \$V\$ and \$W\$ be finite-dimensional nonzero inner product spaces. Let …

Tawseef Ahmed thokar, a scholar turned Militant from Chursoo area of Awantipora in South Kashmir joined militant outfit Hizb ul Mujahideen on 14 May …

## Self-Adjoint Linear Operators – The Math

fT[[toc]] Recall that if \$V\$ and \$W\$ are finite-dimensional nonzero inner product space and if \$T in mathcal L(V, W)\$ them the adjoint of \$T\$ denoted \$T^*\$ is the linear map \$T^* : W to V\$ is defined by considering the linear function \$varphi : V to mathbb{F}\$ defined by \$varphi (v) = \$ and …

## St John’s College celebrates its matric results – The Citizen

The matric class of 2018 at St John’s College produced excellent results, the Johannesburg-based private school said on Thursday. “This has been a truly exceptional year,” headmaster Paul Edey said. “More than 40 percent of the St John’s class of 2018 achieved an academic average of at least 80 percent. Seventy-one percent of St John’s …
