Dual Credit System and the not-so conscious mind Imagine this in an university. An Australian university attaches the same grade to a group of homogenous students. Imagine this is happening to two students. A dual credit system is the one where two students get the same grade in a class for working on the same tutorials, projects and assignments.

Two persons at the same post can have the same emotional gradient, so that they form a homogenuos team. I…

Saddle Point versus Equilibrium Point with respect to marginal utility curve There is an interesting theory in calculus. It is the saddle point and equilibrium point. There is a concept of local and global minima. Lets us take an example of a function. f(x) = x^3 – 2x^2 – 3x + 5 In this case, the curve has a non-linear function which can fall and rise in the Y-Value versus the X-base. There can be more than two places where the curve dips than any other place- this is termed as local minimum. If the curve dips at a greater…
