Roman Domination In Complementary Prisms, Alawi I. Alhashim 2017 East Tennessee State University

Roman Domination In Complementary Prisms, Alawi I. Alhashim

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The complementary prism GG of a graph G is formed from the disjoint union of G and its complement G by adding the edges of a perfect match- ing between the corresponding vertices of G and G. A Roman dominating function on a graph G = (V,E) is a labeling f : V(G) → {0,1,2} such that every vertex with label 0 is adjacent to a vertex with label 2. The Roman domination number γR(G) of G is the minimum f(V ) = Σv∈V f(v) over all such functions of G. We study the Roman domination number ...

Best Practices In Co-Teaching Mathematics, Teacher Efficacy, And Teacher And Student Perceptions, Nanna M. Rexroat-Frazier

SMTC Plan B Papers

Students that qualify for special education services, with a learning disability in math, may receive these services through a variety of formats. Co-teaching is an instructional teaching model that provides an opportunity for students to receive instruction in the least restrictive environment (LRE). An extensive literature review was completed in order to identify best practices and effective co-teaching practices in mathematics classrooms. A clearly defined purpose for co-teaching and selecting co-teaching partners is key to the success of co-teaching. Also, student and teacher perceptions impact the implementation of co-teaching. The effectiveness of co-teaching is further impacted by co-teaching practices, along ...


Knowing Growing Showing Literature Review, Tony Dreise, Troy Meston 2017 Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)

Knowing Growing Showing Literature Review, Tony Dreise, Troy Meston

Indigenous Education

Throughout the world, young people are having to learn about consumer and financial literacy, especially in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis which hurt many families and communities, including young people. This global challenge naturally extends to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in Australia who are particularly vulnerable to financial stress and consumer scams.

There is not a great deal of literature directly on the topic of Indigenous financial literacy particularly as it pertains to quality teaching and learning. This paper explores Indigenous financial literacy and its wider contexts and seeks to pull three important conceptual and ...

Engineering Innovation And Design For Stem Teachers And The Stem Quality Framework, James Rowley, Sandi Preiss, Margaret Pinnell, Suzanne Franco

Margaret Pinnell

The backbone of economic growth in the United States relies on engineering innovation. However, engineering innovation cannot occur without engineers and scientists. Unfortunately however, many K-12 students do not have a good understanding of the engineering design process or the vast field of engineering. As a result, many students lose interest in math and science and do not pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. This paper will describe a unique partnership among the Teacher Education Program and School of Engineering at the University of Dayton (UD) and the Dayton Regional STEM Center (DRSC). This partnership initiated with the ...

The Impact Of An Elementary Algebra Course On Student Success In A College-Level Liberal Arts Math Course And Persistence In College, Lori Ann Austin 2017 Rowan University

The Impact Of An Elementary Algebra Course On Student Success In A College-Level Liberal Arts Math Course And Persistence In College, Lori Ann Austin

Theses and Dissertations

Many students enter community college underprepared for college-level math and are placed into developmental elementary algebra without consideration if the algebra will provide a foundation for their needed college-level math course. Large percentages of those students are unable to succeed in the developmental course and, therefore, are unable to graduate (Bahr, 2008; Bailey, Jeong, & Cho, 2010). This quasi-experimental design focused on students who are not in math-intensive majors, needing only a general liberal arts math course. The purpose was to determine the impact of the elementary algebra course on success in college-level math and persistence in college. Student performance data ...


Socializing Science Education Empowering Students Through The Use Of Discourse And Argumentation Of Socioscientific Issues, Christin Wilkins 2017 University of Toledo

Socializing Science Education Empowering Students Through The Use Of Discourse And Argumentation Of Socioscientific Issues, Christin Wilkins

Learning to Teach

Science teaching must begin to accommodate the changing role that science and technology has in the modern world. Citizens have increased avenues in which science can be used in decision-making in their lives and teaching students only content knowledge is not enough to equip them with the critical skills they need. Science education must promote social justice by giving all students opportunities to learn the nature of science as it relates to socio-scientific issues and explore the different values that are embedded in scientific decision-making. Science education should not only address content, it should encourage discourse and practice of science ...

Differentiation In The Science Classroom: An Overview Of Strategies To Aid In General Science Instruction, Jennifer Anne Croft

Learning to Teach

One could argue that the hardest part about science is reading the material. The vocabulary within the text is difficult, there are many graphs, pictures, equations, diagrams, and tables of information all added to enhance the text, but can be overwhelming (Mason & Hedin, 2011). With all of these various factors contributing to the complexity of science texts, how can students ever read a science text successfully? Through the utilization of literacy accommodations provided by the teacher, students in the regular education science classroom are capable of improving their academic achievement, especially in reading science texts. In this article, accommodations for ...


“I’M Just Not Good At Math!” Rethinking What You Know About Mathematics, Katherine Ann Pohl 2017 University of Toledo

“I’M Just Not Good At Math!” Rethinking What You Know About Mathematics, Katherine Ann Pohl

Learning to Teach

There are many misconceptions regarding mathematics that produce negative student dispositions in a classroom. Such misconceptions are not fact based but are due to an ineffective, fixed mindset where a student limits their abilities based upon low self-efficacy and self-concept. Fixed mindsets fuel negative attitudes toward mathematics and can contribute to math anxiety. Studies have shown that the brain can grow and develop throughout a person’s life is partially dependent upon one’s mindset and experiences. Mathematics teachers can utilize a growth mindset where students have high self-efficacy and self-concept to promote positive dispositions toward mathematics. In doing this ...
