Introducing Aquatic Ecology To Ninth Graders, Inez P. Sutton

Master's Theses

Chapter I

Introduction

In discussing the basis for teaching high school biology, Van Deventer1 states, "...the present typical course in high school biology serves adequately neither the terminal student nor the college entrance student." He holds that today's courses present watered-down versions of college courses to the student before the intelligence of the student has matured enough to grasp such subject matter. As a result there is very little carry-over value from such courses, and the students may even develop a dislike for biology. This study constitutes an effort to understand these problems and to devise ways of ...

A Study Of The Application Of Science And Mathematics In Industrial Arts, Jack David Fox

Master's Theses

I. Purpose of the Study

The purpose of this study was to ascertain the extent to which the applications of science and mathematics were being taught in industrial arts courses in the schools of Michigan, and to show what, if any, similarities or differences existed between the applications being taught and (1) the size of the school, (2) the type of shop, (3) the grade level, and (4) the degree held by the instructor.

More specifically data were gathered to ascertain:

1. The college preparation in science and mathematics received by the industrial arts instructors.

2. The extent to which ...

A Review Of The Status Of The Teaching Of Genetics And Evolution In High School Biology Courses With Suggestions For Improving The Teaching Of These Subjects, Carl Jay Bajema

Master's Theses

Introduction

It is the purpose of this thesis to: (1) discuss the place of genetics and evolution in high school biology courses; (2) specify the objectives that should be attained in teaching genetics and evolution; (3) discuss the current status of the teaching of genetics and evolution in high school biology courses; (4) suggest means of overcoming the three problems which have resulted in the poor teaching of genetics and evolution on the high school level -- first, the problem of religious opposition to the teaching of evolution; second, the problem of a lack of knowledge on the part of the ...

The Past And The Future Of Veterinary Education, Part One: A View Of The Past, David E. Tyler, Fred C. Davison

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Although the practice of the veterinary art extends back to the earliest beginnings of civilization, it has only been during comparatively recent times that the education of veterinarians has been conducted along formal lines. The first veterinary school was founded at Lyons, France, in 1761. Following the example set by France, schools of veterinary medicine were soon organized in several other European countries.


The Past And The Future Of Veterinary Education, Part Two: A Look To The Future, Fred C. Davison, David E. Tyler Jan 1961

The Past And The Future Of Veterinary Education, Part Two: A Look To The Future, Fred C. Davison, David E. Tyler

Iowa State University Veterinarian

That we live in an age of fantastic change is a fact which no one will dispute. Equally prominent is the fact that we must change many of our time tested programs and policies in order to survive in our constantly changing scientific environment. This advance makes different demands of different disciplines. It is our purpose to view those that it has and will place on veterinary education and to explore possible solutions that can bring us into our "golden era." This age of opportunity is no longer on the horizon - it is here with us waiting and challenging us ...
