Ever Changing Technology

In the world of today, technology is advancing continuously, and if you are ill equipment with the resources or the knowledge to use those resources you can become over whelmed, and feel left in the dark.

In my experiences with technology, I have been lucky. I have gained knowledge over my life on how to use technology, and have acquired the skills necessary to have knowledge of the world around me. However, there is still millions of information that I have yet to gather, and the knowledge that I do know is continuously changing with the advances in technology.

For example in my Math 232 class, we’re learning about statistics. Just recently I had to complete a statistics project were data was collect on the Kentucky Performance Result of Cats Testing in the areas of reading and math. In this project we had to construct different types of representations of the data, for example, a box and whisker plot, stem and leaf plot, histogram, along with many other representations. But, we also had to include a double bar graph and a circle graph of data that we were to collect on the internet and construction in Excel. This was a new thing for me to learn, I was used to construction this types of graphs by hand with pencil and paper. But as technology advances, and makes life easier the way of doing tasks changes as well. After using the Excel program to construct my data, I realized that this was a lot easier, and efficient way to show a clean cut representation of the data. Not only did I expand my knowledge of technology, but I found an easier, faster way to complete a task.

All in all technology is proving itself to be a useful piece of equipment to use that is better than the old fashioned way of completing activities. From the sewing machine that make sewing by hand a thing of the pass, to research on the human body, technology has served society in many different ways.
