The first method relies on the representation of some sequences as matrices, after which the program for calculating the sequence's members will have asymptotics equivalent to the exponentiation algorithm's time complexity and be O(log (n)). The second strategy is to improve the existing code in order to significantly shorten program runtime. For scientists who create code for scientific inquiries and deal with matrix multiplication operations, understanding this approach is crucial. The author's challenge is presented and solved using the third strategy, which is based on minimizing temporal complexity by looking for regularities.</p> Oleksandr Mitsa, Yurii Horoshko, Serhii Vapnichnyi Copyright (c) 2022 Oleksandr Mitsa, Yurii Horoshko, Serhii Vapnichnyi Fri, 30 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0300 Generalization of the issues with implementing inclusive education in Ukraine empirical findings from sociological research experience <p>The focus of the paper is on the ongoing issues with the inclusion approach in the educational system. The authors make an effort to study legal documents governing inclusive education, the accessibility of medical and educational facilities, and the willingness of the teaching profession to engage with students who have special educational requirements. the empirical foundation created by a variety of empirical data gathered through traditional document analysis, parent and teacher interviews, and other means. The examination of the research's findings enables us to draw the conclusion that informants are well aware of the challenges facing inclusive education in the present. They are linked to the majority of school buildings' lack of architectural accessibility, teachers' inadequate professional preparation, experience interacting with kids who have various types and degrees of diseases, and the society's inadequate level of readiness to understand the concept of integration.</p> Iryna Hrabovets, Liudmyla Kalashnikova, Liudmyla Chernous Copyright (c) 2022 Iryna Hrabovets, Liudmyla Kalashnikova, Liudmyla Chernous Fri, 30 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0300 Supervision as a form of inclusive education retraining and school community professional advancement <p>Using the example of Kryvyi Rih, we present the supervision model used to promote the education reform in Ukraine and the retraining of the school's major players. Through a sociopolitical and educational description of the current situation in Kryvyi Rih, empirical study has introduced a model of retraining. Due to this, 124 key stakeholders from 20 inclusive schools underwent testing to help plan the implementation of the monitoring model (teachers, tutors, staff, psychologists and parents from 7 districts of Kryvyi Rih were invited to participate). In this study, we provide an alternative strategy for interagency supervisory groups and communication, with an emphasis on the model supervision retraining of inclusive education specialists. Four stages make up the supervision process: case report, exchange, conceptualization, and summary. In the paper, we suggest a modification of an unstructured interview by a specialist who specifies the context of training supervision in order to facilitate successful work. The psycho-educational support team in inclusive education was able to propose the supervision program thanks to the analysis of the organizational, methodological, and information retraining system and the execution of the pilot project of supervisory groups: I. Providing team members with the necessary training to work with the objectives of each child development plan; II. Using case preparation tools; III. Analyzing environmental elements; and IV.

Their use in simulating artificial neural networks is systematically reviewed. The authors distinguish between fundamental methods for addressing the issue of network computer simulation training in the spreadsheet environment, joint application of spreadsheets and tools for neural network simulation, application of third-party add-ins to spreadsheets, development of macros using embedded languages of spreadsheets, use of standard spreadsheet add-ins for non-linear optimization, creation of neural networks in the spreadsheet environment without add-ins, and On the article, methods for creating neural network models in Google Sheets, a cloud-based spreadsheet, are discussed. The classification of multidimensional data presented in R. A. Fisher's "The Use of Multiple Measurements in Taxonomic Problems" served as the model's primary inspiration. Discussed are various idiosyncrasies of data selection as well as Edgar Anderson's participation in the 1920s and 1930s data preparation and collection. The approach of multi-dimensional data display in the form of an ideograph, created by Anderson and regarded as one of the first effective methods of data visualization, is discussed here.</p> Serhiy Semerikov, Illia Teplytskyi, Yuliia Yechkalo, Oksana Markova, Vladimir Soloviev, Arnold Kiv Copyright (c) 2022 Serhiy Semerikov, Illia Teplytskyi, Yuliia Yechkalo, Oksana Markova, Vladimir Soloviev, Arnold Kiv Fri, 30 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0300 Assessment of school plant planning: A case of ICT schools’ SWOT analysis in the Funtua Metropolis <p>This research examines the existing ICT schools' effectiveness and the feasibility of planting a well-established, curriculum-based, and practical-oriented ICT school in Funtua through SWOT analysis. Descriptive research of the survey-type design was used in the study. The population for this study involved all the proprietors/proprietresses, students, and teachers of the existing 10 ICT/Computer schools. A random sampling method was adopted in selecting the samples targeted. The targeted population samples were 35 students, 15 teachers, and ten proprietors from 6 existing ICT/Computer Schools and prospective students (or residents) in Funtua Metropolis, Katsina State, Nigeria. A self-designed research instrument was used to collect data for the study. Data collected were subjected to analysis. The research questions suggesting the respondents’ opinions were evaluated via their mean and standard deviation. The responses/opinion mean less than 3.5 were rejected while others were accepted. The F-test method was used to test the null hypotheses. These findings reveal that the motives of people enrolling in ICT schools were to acquire knowledge and feel it is essential. The rating level of computer literacy was good, while the students’ performance in the existing schools was average. The residents’ level of Computer/ICT literacy was confirmed to be poor, and the performance of existing schools’ students was confirmed to be significantly low. The existing schools were confirmed not to be considerably attracting people. Instead, they discourage people from patronizing them for knowledge’s sake. It was confirmed that there is a significant chance that new schools would gain people’s attraction in the metropolis. Moreover, it was confirmed that there are no significant threats that a new school stands to confront in its process of planting and operation, which implies proprietors do not have much to worry about as a threat in the community.</p> Toyese Oyegoke Copyright (c) 1970 Toyese OYEGOKE Fri, 30 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0300
