The effects of higher-level questioning in a high school mathematics classroom
The purpose of this study was to address questioning and higher-level thinking in a low level high school mathematics class. Students in this study included twenty-two high school freshmen (experimental group) and twenty-three high school freshmen (control group) who were enrolled in Algebra 1. This study included a pretest that both groups took to determine their cognitive level or thinking prior to new information and modifications in teaching. The experimental group received modifications tha

Building a testbed for mini quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicle with protective shroud
Potential applications of small rotorcraft unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) range from military missions to exploration of the planet Mars (Patrick C. O’Brien, 2003). Tasks such as exploration of unknown territories, formation flying, intelligence gathering etc, require UAV to be capable of flying very close to other flying or steady objects. Exposed rotary wings limit rotorcraft vehicle’s capability to fly in proximity of other objects. In some applications, such as rescue operation, urban w

Analysis of honeycomb core properties under different parametric conditions for the head injury crit
There has been enormous boom in the air travel in recent times. There is increasing demand for the technological advancement nowadays towards the safety of the onboard passengers. Certification of aircrafts requires engineers to demonstrate that a head contact with any aircraft interior complies with the Head injury criteria (HIC) threshold of 1000 units specified in 14CFR 23.562, 25.562, 27.562.

Where is Mr. Clean? Household division of labor and the pay gap between men and women
The household division of labor and the pay gap between men and women is examined using the 2003 American Time Use Survey. There are three components to an income determination model: individual, structural and gender level components. The individual component argues that people are rational human beings who make conscious decisions on how to maximize their utility, with increased investments in human capital possibly leading to increases in income. The structural component views society as orga

Prediction of variation in dimensional tolerance due to sheet metal hydroforming using finite elemen
Hydroforming of aluminum sheets is very important in the aircraft industry, due to the advantages of less wrinkling and cost effectiveness. Numerous research has been conducted in this field, which deals with the development of methods and tools to control accuracy of the bend and prediction of the springback after the sheet metal has been formed. Rivets are the most commonly used fasteners to fit together the subassemblies of the aircraft. The holes for riveting are punched after any forming op

System Identification and Parameter Estimation
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems playes an important role. At the end of the course, a choice can be made out of three final assignments, for which recorded signals are available. The available demonstration programs have to be adapted in order to estimate proper transfer functions and model parameters. St

Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P

Counseling Homosexual Students in the Secondary School Setting: Perceptions of Guidance Counselors
This study addresses counselor attitudes as they relate to addressing the needs of homosexual students in the secondary school setting. Homosexual students are often abused and/or neglected in the school setting based as the result of their perceived sexual orientation. The lack of attention provided to this population has cost districts significant money in punitive damage awards over the past ten years or so. While most view the school counselor as the likely staff member to provide interventi

Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 2. Mathematics: A Community Focus
With Dr. Marta Civil. As teachers, we often make assumptions about the knowledge children are exposed to at home. Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing,Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeable about students’ home environments. See and hear from Dr. Civil, the teachers she works with, and a long-standing parent mathematics group, and fo

Overlapping worlds: an examination of macroregional archaeology
Archaeologists have long recognized the fact that long distance relationships existed in prehistoric societies. There have been many efforts to develop models for a satisfactory explanation for interactions and social change among groups. World Systems Theory, developed by Immanuel Wallerstein, is one such effort to examine mechanisms of inter-societal relationships and a determination of units of analysis for Pre-Columbian societies. To utilize this theory, archaeologists have made modification

Closing the economic achievement gap: a case study of a successful Kansas secondary school
In spite of efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, the achievement gap has persisted over time. Recent NCLB legislation has brought renewed attention to the achievement gap, forcing schools to address it. Despite the daunting task of mediating the impact of poverty, some schools have made substantial progress in narrowing the achievement gap with low-income students. This qualitative case study of one successful Kansas public secondary school has concluded the caring actions of teacher

Assessing the validity and reliability of a Piagetian-based paper pencil test
Piaget hypothesized that we understand the world through the use of cognitive frameworks. The strengths and limitations of these cognitive frameworks (or levels) both help and hinder the learning process. Comprehending individuals’ cognitive levels is essential for teachers to ensure that their students learn. Piaget developed a series of tasks to assess individuals’ cognitive levels (typically called "clinical interviews" which can only be conducted in a one-to-one fashion). Thus, a paper-a
