A Comparative Study Of The Traditional And The Scott, Foresman Approaches To The Teaching Of Addition And Subtraction Of Fractions, Austa L. Daverin Nov 1964

A Comparative Study Of The Traditional And The Scott, Foresman Approaches To The Teaching Of Addition And Subtraction Of Fractions, Austa L. Daverin

All Master's Theses

The purpose of this study was to compare the achievement of a control group of children taught addition and subtraction of fractions in the traditional way with that of an experimental group taught by the Scott, Foresman approach. The factors under consideration were the ability to perform the basic operations required in adding and subtracting fractions, and the retention of ability to perform these skills.


The Economic Importance Of Fungus Diseases Of The Tree Fruits In The Wapato Area, Rodney O. Phillips Oct 1964

The Economic Importance Of Fungus Diseases Of The Tree Fruits In The Wapato Area, Rodney O. Phillips

All Master's Theses

It was the purpose of this study to (1) determine which, if any, fungus diseases were affecting tree fruits in the Wapato area; (2) determine what control measures are being used against the diseases; (3) determine the costs for control of the diseases, and/or replacement of affected trees.


The Algae Of Two Soil Types, Eugene D. Fairchild Sep 1964

The Algae Of Two Soil Types, Eugene D. Fairchild

All Master's Theses

The purpose of this investigation was to identify and describe the algal flora of two different soil types; a sandy soil, Plot I, and an alkali soil, Plot II.


Growth In Geometric Skills Made By Students In Grade Four, Gail Crum Aug 1964

Growth In Geometric Skills Made By Students In Grade Four, Gail Crum

All Master's Theses

For the first time in School District Number Seven, Yakima, Washington, a structured geometry course is included in the fourth grade mathematics program. The purpose of this study was to determine the growth in geometric skills made by the students enrolled in this program. It is a study to help determine which learnings fourth graders grasp, which only a few grasp, and, if there are some, none grasp.


An Experimental Study Of Fear: Test Of An Alleged Innate Sign Stimulus, Paul Dawson Aug 1964

An Experimental Study Of Fear: Test Of An Alleged Innate Sign Stimulus, Paul Dawson

All Master's Theses

The purpose of the present study was to test the Tinbergen hypothesis that specifically shaped sign stimuli innately arouse fear behavior in certain species of birds.


A Study Of Selected Topics To Be Taught In Sixth-Grade Science In The Grant School, Ephrata, Washington, Lewis Clyde Graham Aug 1964

A Study Of Selected Topics To Be Taught In Sixth-Grade Science In The Grant School, Ephrata, Washington, Lewis Clyde Graham

All Master's Theses

The purpose of this study will be (1) to set up a series of units from which a sixth grade science program can be built; (2) to determine what materials can be used to teach this: and (3) to provide the nucleus around which an entire elementary science program can be developed.


The Application Of The Additivity Theorem To Subjective Probability, Branton K. Holmberg Aug 1964

The Application Of The Additivity Theorem To Subjective Probability, Branton K. Holmberg

All Master's Theses

The purpose of this study is to examine the validity of applying the additivity theorem to subjective estimates of probability. Additivity, as used herein, refers to the process of adding the probability of the occurrence of an event and the probability of the non-occurrence of the same event and arriving at a total of one.


Mechanized Mathematics, Britton Wood Jan 1964

Mechanized Mathematics, Britton Wood

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The widespread availability of information requires people to know a lot more than was necessary in the past to qualify as educated citizens. Population growth, however, has made it difficult for education systems to meet their students’ learning needs. This paper examines changes in education methods, focusing on technology-based learning, or “teaching machines”. The researcher evaluated "programed learning” by juxtaposing two 9th grade algebra classes—a 30 member experimental group and a 32 member control group. The experimental group received “programed learning” instruction while the control group was taught using traditional methods. A post-test was administered at the program ...
