That’s how employers describe UW-Stout graduates. Our innovative, career-focused degrees combine applied learning and the liberal arts.
A student is doing an experiment timing a marble rolling down a 45 degree incline plane (see Figure 1 below). A second student says "I'll bet I can get it to roll to the bottom in less time by using two incline planes like this." (see Figure 2 below). The first student says "Yes your marble will roll faster during the first section, but it also has further to roll. My single plane is the shortest distance between the top and the bottom, therefore my marble will reach the bottom first". Who is right?
