2.2 Everyday scenes
To set up a care relationship that works well is a delicate matter, whether you are at the giving or the receiving end. In this unit we explore the very varied meanings of care relationships and how these meanings arise. Millions of care relationships are going on as you read this, and each carries its own particular meanings for those involved. But where have all those people picked up their ideas of how to relate to each other? How does any of us know where to begin?

The role of awareness in the teaching and learning of literacy and numeracy at key stage 2
Our starting point is that explicit understanding of key concepts will promote children’s progress in literacy. We argue that this depends on their teachers having explicit knowledge of the concepts which is translated into teaching practice. These ideas are explored in the context of the teaching of morphology and reading comprehension in 50 London primary schools. In our first study, teacher’s explicit awareness and practice of morphology and reading comprehension strategies are documented

Intensive quantities: why they matter to mathematics education
Ever since Piaget's (1952) classic work on number, a fundamental distinction has been drawn in the mathematics literature between extensive and intensive quantities. Extensive quantities (for example, volume, distance) are based on the logic of part-whole relations. Adding 20 decilitres of orange squash to 60 decilitres produces 80 decilitres of orange squash, since the whole is the sum of the parts. Intensive quantities (for example, density, speed) are based on the logic of co-variation. Addin

Synthetic repurchase programs through put derivatives: theory and evidence
A Synthetic Repurchase is an open market share repurchase program enhanced with sales of put derivatives on the firm’s own stock. Microsoft, in 1999, using a synthetic repurchase program sold put derivatives on its own stock and received $766 million in premiums and, at the same time, signaled that it is a good-quality company and certified its future earnings. I present theoretical rationale that explains why a synthetic repurchase program provides an efficient signal about a firm’s future
