A Survey Of Factors Affecting Enrollment In Mathematics Teacher Education Programs, Rebecca Miller Oct 1988

A Survey Of Factors Affecting Enrollment In Mathematics Teacher Education Programs, Rebecca Miller

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Concern for an adequate supply of competent mathematics teachers prompted this research. The study was implemented to identify the factors believed to be of importance in a student's decision concerning whether or not to become a public school teacher.

A comparison was made between two groups of mathematics students at Western Kentucky University. Mathematics students were separated according to whether or not they were pursuing teacher certification.

A two-part questionnaire was administered. The first part asked students to rate the importance of 10 selected career factors in their career decision. The second part asked students to rate these same ...


News Release, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Sep 1988

News Release, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Various Documents

Dr. Leon M. Lederman, Director of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Batavia, Illinois, has been named one of three recipients of the 1988 Nobel Prize for physics. Sharing the prize with Dr. Lederman are Dr. Melvin Schwartz and Dr. Jack Steinberger. The three have been cited for their discovery, in 1962, of a second neutrino, an elementary subatomic particle. Fermilab is operated by the Universities Research Association, Inc., under contract with the United States Department of Energy (DOE).

Department Of Entomology Newsletter, University Of Nebraska, No. 5 -- 1988. Part 1., George R. Manglitz

Hexapod Herald & Other Entomology Department Newsletters

When the last Newsletter was published in 1976 (No.4), it was assumed that it would be followed by another In 4 or 5 years. And indeed, considerable effort has been expended on the production of No.5. However, for various very good reasons No.5, although close to publication several times, aborted several times. Now largely because this is the centennial year of our Department, we feel that we can wait no longer. Because of that fact, the format of this Newsletter will be slightly different from those in the past. We have the "news" that you furnished about ...

1987-88 Annual Report, Illinois' Investment, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy Jan 1988

1987-88 Annual Report, Illinois' Investment, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

Annual Reports

Our second academic year enabled the Academy to embark in new directions. At the conclusion of the 1988 spring legislative session, the Academy's budget review process was transferred from the Illinois State Board of Education to the Illinois Board of Higher Education. We are grateful to all who have helped shape the Academy into the unique institution that it is today. We extend special thanks to Superintendent of Education Dr. Ted Sanders and the staff at the State Board of Education for their leadership. With their assistance and support, the Academy was able to achieve significant growth within a ...

Soil N Availability And Nitrogen Harvest Index Of Oats, N. Md. Kairudin, K. J. Frey Jan 1988

Soil N Availability And Nitrogen Harvest Index Of Oats, N. Md. Kairudin, K. J. Frey

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

A population of 480 random lines of oats (Avena sativa L.) was grown on soil that received no application of nitrogen (N) or 112 kg of N ha-1 (defined as low- and high-N environments, respectively) to evaluate the effect of N availability in the soil on the plant's ability to partition N between vegetative tissue and the grain, a ratio defined as nitrogen harvest index. Also, comparisons were made between low and high-N environments for grain yield, straw yield, biological yield, groat protein yield, groat protein percentage, vegetative protein yield, straw protein percentage, total plant protein yield, and ...

Inovação Curricular E A Reforma De 1855 De Luiz Pedreira Do Couto Ferraz [Curricular Innovation And The 1855 Reform Of Luiz Pedreira Do Couto Ferraz], Karl M. Lorenz, Ariclê Vechia

Education Faculty Publications

Several reforms that affected the different levels of instruction were implemented in Brazil during the decade of 1850. With respect to secondary education, the regulations proposed in Decree no. 1556 of February 17, 1855, by minister Couto Ferraz, significantly modified the program of studies of the College Pedro II, the model institution of the Empire, by dividing it into two cycles: the Studies of the First Class and the Studies of the Second Class. This study discusses changes in the curriculum, not only in its organization, but also in its composition and the emphasis given to the various disciplines in ...


Some Genetic Characteristics Of Three Walleye Stocks In Iowa And The Impact Of Fry Stockings In The Cedar River, Vaughn L. Paragamian Jan 1988

Some Genetic Characteristics Of Three Walleye Stocks In Iowa And The Impact Of Fry Stockings In The Cedar River, Vaughn L. Paragamian

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Fry stockings of walleye Stizostedion v. vitreum into the Cedar River, Iowa began in the early 1950's, and two studies of the success of these plants gave conflicting results. The objectives of my study were to identify some genetic characteristics in three stocks of walleye and to utilize these characteristics to assess the genetic impact of fry stockings in the Cedar River. Electrophoretic analysis of malate dehydrogenase (MDH) and isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) was completed for walleye stocks from the Mississippi and Cedar Rivers, and Big Spirit Lake, Iowa. Phenotypic frequencies of Mdh - B2 and Mdh - B3 were ...

Anthracnose Kernel Rot Of Maize Caused By Colletotrichum Graminicola (Ces.) Wils.: Mode Of Entrance Into And Disease Progression In Ears, Claude Nankam, D. C. Foley Jan 1988

Anthracnose Kernel Rot Of Maize Caused By Colletotrichum Graminicola (Ces.) Wils.: Mode Of Entrance Into And Disease Progression In Ears, Claude Nankam, D. C. Foley

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The mode of establishment of Colletotrichum graminicola in maize ears to cause kernel infection was studied for two types of infective propagules and three sites of penetration. Shank inoculations with either oat-grain inoculum or spores induced a greater percentage of infected kernels than inoculations of the husk or kernel area with an infected oat grain or inoculations of the silks with an oat grain or a spore suspension in 1985. But in 1986, a spore suspension in the kernels ranked first among all the treatments based on the basis of disease severity on the kernels. However, a large percentage of ...


Seasonal Composition Of Benthic Diatom Associations In The Cedar River Basin (Iowa), Stephen P. Main Jan 1988

Seasonal Composition Of Benthic Diatom Associations In The Cedar River Basin (Iowa), Stephen P. Main

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

This is the first detailed report on the taxonomy and ecology of diatoms in the portion of the upper reaches of the Cedar River basin in Iowa. This paper describes the diatom taxa from shallow benthic substrata collected quarterly between 11 October 1975 and 19 February 1977 at 14 sampling stations. Just over 500 frustules were counted from each of the 216 samples obtained. Analysis of water samples collected at the same time as the diatoms indicates these screams have alkaline hard waters rich in nutrients with extreme turbidity level fluctuation at irregular intervals.

The 281 diatom taxa identified represented ...

Predation By Ermine And Long-Tailed Weasels On Duck Eggs, Joseph P. Fleskes Jan 1988

Predation By Ermine And Long-Tailed Weasels On Duck Eggs, Joseph P. Fleskes

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Ermine (Mustela erminea) and long-tailed weasel (M. frenata) predation on duck eggs was studied at Union Slough National Wildlife Refuge, Kossuth County, Iowa, 1984-85. Captive individuals of both species ate 2-4 duck eggs at a rate of 0.5-2 eggs per trial day. All eggs were moved but some were not opened. One hole, ringed with small fragments and "bite-outs'', was made in all eggs opened by captive weasels. In the field, the appearance of opened eggs, the pattern of egg loss and the amount of nest bowl disturbance were used to determine the number of nests depreciated by weasels ...
