Handbook for Teachers of Multi-Grade Classes: Improving Performance at the Primary Level
Multi-grade classes and single teacher schools have made it possible for many children in remote rural areas and communities to access education. However, the teachers teaching in these environments rarely receive training in how to deal with and manage the large numbers of pupils, of different ages and levels of learning, that they confront in their classes. These tools can assist teachers in this regard. This handbook comprises ten units, each one consisting of common experiences, case studies

Virtual Laboratory
The simulation program is based on the Nobel Prize winning Hodgkin-Huxley model for excitation of the squid axon. The program simulates an excised squid axon by applying stimuli or clamps after setting the environment of the axon, changing its properties, and/or adding drugs or toxins. By using the program tools, experiments can be developed that explore a variety of nerve properties, ranging from classical phenomena such as threshold, summation, refractory period, and impulse propagation to mo

Food Interaction Study
This dataset comes from a study of 8 healthy males randomly assigned to a two-period crossover design, in which they either fasted and then ate, or ate and then fasted. They were given one dose of a drug, blood samples were collected and data on plasma levels were collected. Questions from this study refer to the absorption of the drug. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.

One Nation: Two Futures?
Since the mid-l970s, economic reforms have transformed China from one of the most egalitarian societies into one of the most unequal in the world. Wide disparities currently exist between the income levels of a relatively few rich and middle-class Chinese and their fellow citizens who number in the hundreds of millions. This "wealth gap" is particularly acute when one compares the incomes of urban and rural residents, between Chinese living in the interior of the country and those living in the

Analysing the significance of problem solving expertise and computational tool proficiency in design
This paper presents a pilot study to analyze the role of problem solving expertise (PSE) and computational tool proficiency (CTP) of expert and novice architects in the ideation process within a distributed cognition environment. To analyze PSE, we studied the frequency of occurrence of unique problem solving tasks per limited commitment mode (LCM) revisit. We also devised a quantitative measure for analyzing CTP based on the frequency of unique and normally distributed modeling activities per d
