University of Tennessee at Martin
–
The University of Tennessee at Martin, located in Martin, Tennessee, in the United States, is one of the five campuses of the University of Tennessee system. Prior to the acquisition of Lambuth University in Jackson by University of Memphis in 2011, UTM operates a large experimental farm and several satellite centers in West Tennessee. Although UT Martin dates from 1927, it is not the first educational institution to use the current site, in 1900, Ada Gardner Brooks donated a site on what was then the outskirts of Martin to the Tennessee Baptist Convention for the purposes of opening a school. The school opened as the Hall-Moody Institute, named for two locally prominent Baptist ministers and it originally offered 13 years of study, from elementary grades to the equivalent of the first years of collegiate work. The institute changed its name to Hall-Moody Normal School in 1917, five years later, Hall-Moody changed its name again to Hall-Moody Junior College. Due to declining enrollment and financial difficulties in the mid-1920s, Hall-Moody Junior College was in danger of closing, in 1927, the Tennessee Baptist Convention made the decision to consolidate Hall-Moody with a similar institution, Union University, in nearby Jackson. University of Tennessee president Harcourt Morgan agreed to accept the proposition on the condition that the Martin community would acquire the property as well as space for expansion, the City of Martin and Weakley County sold bonds to purchase the campus and some surrounding land. On February 10,1927, Senate Bill Number 301 established the University of Tennessee Junior College in Martin, on March 29, it was officially approved by Governor Austin Peay. However, an influx of returning servicemen ushered in rapid growth both in enrollment and educational offerings, in 1951, with the addition of four-year fields of study leading to a bachelors degree, it was redesignated the University of Tennessee Martin Branch. In 1961, it was the first campus in the University of Tennessee system to begin racial desegregation of undergraduates, until 1967, it was treated as an off-site department of the main campus in Knoxville. As such, its presiding officer was known first as an executive officer, in 1967, it was granted equal status with the main campus in Knoxville under its current name, and its presiding officer was granted the title of chancellor. The school grew greatly from the post-World War II era, largely under the influence of the G. I, Bill of Rights, through the 1960s under the leadership of Paul Meek, who led the school from 1934 to 1967. It was noted that the school had almost as many entering freshmen in 1969 as it had students in 1961. C. Porter Claxton Paul Meek Archie R. Dykes Larry T. McGehee Charles E. Smith Margaret N.

Carver, Jr. There is an active ROTC program and a school of nursing, the school is among the top providers of candidates to the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. There is a graduate school, with most graduate degrees being conferred in education. The university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges. During the tenure of Dr. Robert Smith, UT Martin successfuly met the challenge and was removed from probation and he was also granted the honorary title chancellor emeritus

Cubic function
–
In algebra, a cubic function is a function of the form f = a x 3 + b x 2 + c x + d, where a is nonzero. Setting f =0 produces an equation of the form. The solutions of this equation are called roots of the polynomial f, If all of the coefficients a, b, c, and d of the cubic equation are real numbers then there will be at least one real root. All of the roots of the equation can be found algebraically. The roots can also be found trigonometrically, alternatively, numerical approximations of the roots can be found using root-finding algorithms like Newtons method. The coefficients do not need to be complex numbers, much of what is covered below is valid for coefficients of any field with characteristic 0 or greater than 3. The solutions of the cubic equation do not necessarily belong to the field as the coefficients. For example, some cubic equations with rational coefficients have roots that are complex numbers. Cubic equations were known to the ancient Babylonians, Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Babylonian cuneiform tablets have been found with tables for calculating cubes and cube roots. The Babylonians could have used the tables to solve cubic equations, the problem of doubling the cube involves the simplest and oldest studied cubic equation, and one for which the ancient Egyptians did not believe a solution existed. Methods for solving cubic equations appear in The Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art, in the 3rd century, the Greek mathematician Diophantus found integer or rational solutions for some bivariate cubic equations. In the 11th century, the Persian poet-mathematician, Omar Khayyám, in an early paper, he discovered that a cubic equation can have more than one solution and stated that it cannot be solved using compass and straightedge constructions. He also found a geometric solution, in the 12th century, the Indian mathematician Bhaskara II attempted the solution of cubic equations without general success. However, he gave one example of an equation, x3 + 12x = 6x2 +35. He used what would later be known as the Ruffini-Horner method to approximate the root of a cubic equation. He also developed the concepts of a function and the maxima and minima of curves in order to solve cubic equations which may not have positive solutions. He understood the importance of the discriminant of the equation to find algebraic solutions to certain types of cubic equations. Leonardo de Pisa, also known as Fibonacci, was able to approximate the positive solution to the cubic equation x3 + 2x2 + 10x =20
