To The Mathematical Beach, Francis Su Jun 2015

To The Mathematical Beach, Francis Su

All HMC Faculty Publications and Research

What context am I missing that hinders my connection with my students? How often do I take the time to get to know their backgrounds? What are the primary experiences that shaped them, and do those present obstacles or opportunities for learning? And in what ways does the mathematical beach say “open to all” but still feel restricted?

These questions appear unrelated to mathematics, but if we ignore their effects, some of our students will not flourish.

The Academic Preparation And Background Of Public Secondary Mathematics Teachers In Utah 1966-1967, Charles Crittenden May 2014

The Academic Preparation And Background Of Public Secondary Mathematics Teachers In Utah 1966-1967, Charles Crittenden

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

A random survey was conducted to determine the academic preparation and background of the public secondary mathematics teachers in the state of Utah.

The survey indicated that there is a wide variance in the teacher mathematics preparation between the three types of public secondary schools. The class B high schools have a smaller percentage of well prepared mathematics teachers than either the class A high schools or the junior high schools.

The following facts were discovered: (1) 22.03 percent of all the surveyed mathematics teachers had between 1 and 15 quarter hours of college mathematics preparation, (2) 5.22 ...


The Sociobehavioural Cancer Research Network: Background Progress Report, Lori Lockyer, R Futcher, F Ashbury, Don Iverson Jul 2013

The Sociobehavioural Cancer Research Network: Background Progress Report, Lori Lockyer, R Futcher, F Ashbury, Don Iverson

Professor Lori Lockyer

The Sociobehavioural Cancer Research Network (SCRN) was established in 1994 by the National Cancer Institute of Canada (NCIC) with funding from the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). The network was created to facilitate the development of behavioural science studies that would contribute to a fuller understanding of the cancer experience, from prevention through detection, treatment and post treatment (including palliative care). This article describes the nature of network research, the development and organization of the Sociobehavioural Cancer Research Network and the challenges it faces.


A Tale Of Five Countries: Background And Confidence In Preservice Primary Teachers In Drama Education Across Five Countries, Deirdre E. Russell-Bowie Jul 2013

A Tale Of Five Countries: Background And Confidence In Preservice Primary Teachers In Drama Education Across Five Countries, Deirdre E. Russell-Bowie

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

In many public primary schools across different countries, generalist primary teachers are required to teach all subjects, including music, dance, drama and visual arts. This study investigates the background and confidence of preservice primary teachers from five countries in relation to drama and drama education. It also examines if there is a difference between the preservice teachers’ perceptions of their own background and confidence in drama education in relation to each of the five countries (Australia, South Africa, Namibia, USA and Ireland). On investigating the differences between countries, there were significant statistical differences in the means of responses from preservice ...

Expert Versus Novice Tutors: Impacts On Student Outcomes In Problem Based Learning, Heather Leary, Andrew Walker, Brett E. Shelton, M. Harrison Fitt Oct 2009

Expert Versus Novice Tutors: Impacts On Student Outcomes In Problem Based Learning, Heather Leary, Andrew Walker, Brett E. Shelton, M. Harrison Fitt

Heather Leary, Ph.D.

Problem based learning (PBL) is well known for the large amount of literature in Medical Education (Savery & Duffy, 1995). An essential part of PBL is the role of the tutor. With inconsistencies in the definition of an effective tutor, a systematic review of the literature in all disciplines is necessary. Meta-analysis (Cooper & Hedges, 1994) was used to investigate both content expertise and facilitator training of PBL tutors as moderators of student learning outcomes.

Cognitive And Social/Behavioural Development At 3-4 Years In Relation To Family Background, Edward Melhuish, Louise Quinn, Kathy Sylva, Pam Sammons, Iram Siraj-Blatchford, Brenda Taggart, Kathleen Mcsherry, Mark Mccrory

Faculty of Social Sciences - Papers

This longitudinal study assesses the attainment and development of children followed between the ages of 3 and 7 years. Over 700 children were recruited to the study during 1998 and 1999 from 80 pre-school centres. Both qualitative and quantitative methods (including multilevel modelling) are used to explore the effects of pre-school experience on children's cognitive attainment and social/behavioural development at entry to school and any continuing effects on such outcomes up to 7 years of age. In addition to the effects of preschool experience, the study investigates the contribution to children's development of individual and family characteristics ...

Second Chance Language Learning: A Study Of What The Slow Language Learner's Problems Are, Why They Exist, And How To Give The Slow Language Learner Help On A Remedial Basis., Pamela S. Plimpton, Helen Kalaya Jan 1975

Second Chance Language Learning: A Study Of What The Slow Language Learner's Problems Are, Why They Exist, And How To Give The Slow Language Learner Help On A Remedial Basis., Pamela S. Plimpton, Helen Kalaya

MA TESOL Collection

In the course of our paper , we will discuss theories of why the problem of the slow language learner exists, what the problem was for our specific situation and how we personally dealt with the problem(s). Realizing that other teachers will not be facing the same physical situation we did, (that of teaching ESL to Greek students at a private Greek high school in Thessaloniki, Greece) we will discuss alternatives concerning physical facilities needed for remedial help. Lastly, we offer an annotated listing of resources dealing with these students; and suggestions for the practical application of materials and methods ...
