Progression It is a term that comes from the Latin word progressĭo. The concept is used to name the Advance or the developing Of something. The notion can be linked to the verb pursue , which consists in maintaining or prolonging what has already begun.
For example: "If we manage to maintain the growth rate, the progression indicates that we will exceed one million pesos in sales during this period", "It is still early to announce the winner, but a progression of the current results would place the official candidate as the winner in these elections", "The team's progression was interrupted after the captain's injury".
A progression can be associated with progress or one sequence . If a journalist plans to analyze the progression of heritage of a public official, he will take into account his wealth at a certain time and compare it with the assets he treasures at a later time. If the official declared to have an estate of one million pesos in 2011 and then he declared to have two million in 2012 , the progression will demonstrate a capital increase of 100% in a year.
In the same way, we cannot ignore the existence of what is known as thematic progression. It refers to the process or system through which the content of a text is distributed and organized throughout it. Hence, it serves to support and make clear what textual cohesion is.
Different authors, throughout history, have analyzed and studied this type of progression, with B. Combettes being one of the most important in this regard. Specifically, of his work carried out in this regard, he highlighted the fact that he considered that there were three classes of it:
-Linear progression, which means that the row or part of it that establishes a proposition becomes the subject of the following, that is, it consists of a concatenation of themes.
-Constant theme progression. It is about the same topic being presented through several rems throughout the text.
-Progression of derivative topics. Specifically, it comes to determine that there is a hypertema that can be broken down, in turn, into several different themes or subtopics.
The concept of progression is also used in mathematics to name the succession of terms or numbers linked by a certain law. A arithmetic progression , in this sense, it is formed by those numbers whose difference, between successive numbers within the sequence, is constant. This means that the sequence “2, 4, 6, 8” an arithmetic progression whose constant is 2 .
Similarly, a geometric progression is a sequence whose successive elements are obtained from the multiplication from the previous one for a constant term. “10, 40, 160, 640” it is a geometric progression that has the 4 as constant
Within the world of cinema, we find several productions that have used the term that concerns us in their titles. Among those, “Progression” stands out, with an English title but with the same meaning as that, which was released in 2009 and revolves around what are adventure sports and really dangerous disciplines.
