The use case specification of actions in the goal oriented knowledge based learning environment
The proposed goal oriented knowledge acquisition and assessment are based on the flexible educational model and allows to implement an adaptive control of the enhanced learning process according to the requirements of student's knowledge level, his state of cognition and subject learning history. The enhanced learner knowledge model specifies how the cognition state of the user will be achieved step by step. The use case actions definition is a starting point of the specification that depends o
The proving process within a dynamic geometry environment
Proof and proving have been objects of investigation from the point of view of mathematics and mathematics education for the past few years. Historical and epistemological studies show that proof is a crucial activity within mathematical practice. Didactical studies show that students encounter many difficulties when approaching proving in the classroom. Research at a cognitive level has developed frameworks interpreting students' difficulties. Studies concerned with the use of new technologies
Discovering Important Statistical Concepts Using Spreadsheets
The Discovering Important Statistical Concepts Using Spread Sheets (DISCUSS) project is a modified and supplemented web-based implementation of the initial DISCUS materials for teaching elementary statistics at the introductory level. The site aims to integrate the powerful interactive capabilities of Microsoft Excel with the convenience of web-based resource materials using Microsoft Internet Explorer. There are several modules within the project. Modules include, [no comma] charts and graphs,
This laboratory activity gives an example of the creativity required when teaching non-native rock types. In order to study igneous and metamorphic rocks in central Florida (a huge area consisting solely of sedimentary rock), geology students examined building stones in downtown St. Petersburg. Each student picked a particular rock type used in a particular way (structure, decorative facade, etc.), performed geologic tests on it, read up on its properties, history, and uses, and prepared a paper
Star Library: What Makes the Standard Deviation Larger or Smaller?
The activity is designed to help students develop a better intuitive understanding of what is meant by variability in statistics. Emphasis is placed on the standard deviation as a measure of variability. As they learn about the standard deviation, many students focus on the variability of bar heights in a histogram when asked to compare the variability of two distributions. For these students, variability refers to the “variation” in bar heights. Other students may focus only on the range of

Standards for the academic veterinary medical library
The Standards Committee of the Veterinary Medical Libraries Section was appointed in May 2000 and charged to create standards for the ideal academic veterinary medical library, written from the perspective of veterinary medical librarians. The resulting Standards for the Academic Veterinary Medical Library were approved by members of the Veterinary Medical Libraries Section during MLA ’03 in San Diego, California. The standards were approved by Section Council in April 2005 and received final

Fundamentals of Compressible Flow Mechanics
This book deals with an introduction to the flow of compressible substances (gases). The main difference between compressible flow and almost incompressible flow is not the fact that compressibility has to be considered. Rather, the difference is in two phenomena that do not exist in incompressible flow. The first phenomenon is the very sharp discontinuity (jump) in the flow in properties. The second phenomenon is the choking of the flow. Choking is when downstream variations don't effect the fl
