Stop The Century--We’Re Not Ready!, Leon Lederman Dec 2002

Stop The Century--We’Re Not Ready!, Leon Lederman

IMSA Great Minds Program ®

The distinguished Nobel Laureate and contributing author of the newly released Science Literacy for the Twenty-first Century and author of The God Particle will explore how science and technology serve as the drivers for 21st Century changes in our social, political and economic lives. Profits and conveniences made by deployment of new knowledge force the issue of whether such deployment is in society’s best long-term interest. The need grows exponentially for the voting public in our democratic society to play a significant role in making decisions. Lederman discusses whether we can devise a feasible educational system that will produce ...


Cooperative Agent Systems: Artificial Agents Play The Ultimatum Game, Fang Zhong, Steven. O. Kimbrough, D.J. Wu Nov 2002

Cooperative Agent Systems: Artificial Agents Play The Ultimatum Game, Fang Zhong, Steven. O. Kimbrough, D.J. Wu

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

We explore computational approaches for artificial agents to play the ultimatum game. We compare our agents' behavior with that predicted by classical game theory, as well as behavior found in experimental (or behavioral) economics investigations. In particular, we study the following questions: How do artificial agents perform in playing the ultimatum game against fixed rules, dynamic rules, and rotating rules? How do coevolving artificial agents perform? Will learning software agents do better? What is the value of intelligence? What will happen when smart learning agents play against dumb (no-learning) agents? What will be the impact of agent memory size on ...

An Assessment Of Basic Computer Proficiency Among Active Internet Users: Test Construction, Calibration, Antecedents And Consequences, Eric T. Bradlow, Stephen J. Hoch, J. W. Hutchinson Sep 2002

An Assessment Of Basic Computer Proficiency Among Active Internet Users: Test Construction, Calibration, Antecedents And Consequences, Eric T. Bradlow, Stephen J. Hoch, J. W. Hutchinson

Marketing Papers

The purpose of this article is to describe our efforts to create a test of basic computer proficiency, examine its properties using parametric test scoring methods, and identify some antecedents and consequences that accompany differences in performance. We also consider how much insight people have into their level of knowledge by examining the relationship between our tested measure of computer knowledge and self-rated knowledge scores collected at the same time. This research also adds to the large body of existing empirical work on computer literacy in the student population, by looking at computer literacy in a more general sample of ...

G-Portal : A Map-Based Digital Library For Distributed Geospatial And Georeferenced Resources, Ee Peng Lim, Dion Hoe-Lian Goh Jul 2002

G-Portal : A Map-Based Digital Library For Distributed Geospatial And Georeferenced Resources, Ee Peng Lim, Dion Hoe-Lian Goh

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

As the World Wide Web evolves into an immense information network, it is tempting to build new digital library services and expand existing digital library services to make use of web content. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of G-Portal, a web portal that aims to provide digital library services over geospatial and georeferenced content found on the World Wide Web. G-Portal adopts a map-based user interface to visualize and manipulate the distributed geospatial and georeferenced content. Annotation capabilities are supported, allowing users to contribute geospatial and georeferenced objects as well as their associated metadata. The other ...


Creating Successful Calculus Writing Assignments, Kris H. Green Jun 2002

Creating Successful Calculus Writing Assignments, Kris H. Green

Mathematical and Computing Sciences Faculty/Staff Publications

I discuss three different writing assignments that I have used in my calculus courses. These assignments are introduced with a discussion of purpose and audience. Defining these qualities of an assignment will ensure that your writing assignments are more successful. The assignments discussed and explored here represent three different purposes: personal, informational and a blend of the two. The audiences for these assignments are diverse and force the students to incorporate particular modes of writing that demonstrate much of their thinking. Assessment of student learning as a result of these assignments is discussed. A fourth writing assignment is developed from ...

Portfolio Assessment In Liberal Arts Mathematics, Mike Kenyon

Humanistic Mathematics Network Journal

This paper describes my efforts to incorporate problem-solving portfolios into my liberal arts mathematics course. I begin with a description of the components of the portfolios and the factors I consider in evaluating them. I then address some of the more significant obstacles I have encountered as well as what I consider to be among the major benefits. A selection from one student’s portfolio is appended.

Exploring The Natural Connection Of Mathematical And Musical Concepts Using Mathematica, Joe Hayter, Sarah Cobb Apr 2002

Exploring The Natural Connection Of Mathematical And Musical Concepts Using Mathematica, Joe Hayter, Sarah Cobb

Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science Undergraduate Theses

Math and music share one very common property; they are both universal languages of the world. Their scientific relationship represents another powerful tie. The harmonious, unique, and enjoyable tunes we hear are surrounded by scientific and mathematical concepts that make music possible. Exploring this natural connection between math and music allows for a more complete understanding of both these subjects. By analyzing the formulas used to create musical notes, examining how to apply matrices to music, and implementing an inter-disciplinary unit of math and music into the classroom, the reader of this thesis will discover the multitude of similarities that ...

High-Stakes Tests Require High-Stakes Pedagogy, Randy Lattimore Jan 2002

High-Stakes Tests Require High-Stakes Pedagogy, Randy Lattimore

Trotter Review

High-stakes mathematics tests continue to gain popularity in the United States, with an increasing number of states setting the passing of such tests as a high school graduation requirement. Consequently, instruction and instructional content have changed, with teachers emphasizing materials on the test while neglecting other important aspects of learning. The tests have become all-consuming, taking over many students' lives. Yet students are often ill prepared for these tests. This is even more true for African-American students whose cultural and social circumstances make their preparation for high-stakes tests inadequate and ineffective. The author examines six such students - their hopes for ...
