A Massively Flipped Class-Designing and implementing active learning information literacy instruction for a large enrollment course
Purpose This paper describes and analyzes how one-shot library instruction sessions for large lecture classes can effectively be “flipped” and can incorporate active learning activities as part of both the online and the ...
Self-inversive polynomials, curves, and codes
(American Mathematical Society, 2016-03-05)
We study connections between self-inversive and self-reciprocal polynomials, reduction theory of binary forms, minimal models of curves, and formally self-dual codes
Combinatorial Algorithm for Quadratic Programs with Laplacian Structure
(Utilitas Mathematica, 2016)
An algorithm is presented that uses a mostly combinatorial approach to solve a family of convex quadratic programs over box constraints. It is proved that for convex programs with the required structure, the ...
The Gene Encoding Dihydroflavonol 4-Reductase Is a Candidate for the anthocyaninless Locus of Rapid Cycling Brassica rapa (Fast Plants Type)
(PLOS ONE, 2016-08-22)
Rapid cycling Brassica rapa, also known as Wisconsin Fast Plants, are a widely used organism in both K-12 and college science education. They are an excellent system for genetics laboratory instruction because it is very ...
Isolation and comparative analysis of potential stem/progenitor cells from different regions of human umbilical cord
Human umbilical cord (hUC) blood and tissue are non-invasive sources of potential stem/progenitor cells with similar cell surface properties as bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs). While they are limited in cord blood, they ...
A "suitably dead" woman: Grieving Andrea Dworkin
(Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, 2016-10-14)
This article investigates the discursive register through which lives become grievable by focusing on a case study of the discourses surrounding the death of radical feminist, Andrea Dworkin. I argue that Dworkin becomes ...
On generalized superelliptic Riemann surfaces
(eprint arXiv:1609.09576, 2016-11-01)
A closed Riemann surface X, of genus g ≥ 2, is called a generalized superelliptic curve of level n ≥ 2 if it admits an order n conformal automorphism τ so that X/hτihas genus zero and τ is central in Aut(X); the cyclic ...
Interpreting American Ethnic Experiences: The Development of the Balch Library Collections
The Balch Institute was a library and museum dedicated to immigration and ethnic history, based in Philadelphia. This article analyzes the development of its print and manuscript collections, from its first accessions in ...
To search or to browse: How users navigate a new interface for online library tutorials
As academic libraries create online learning objects, it is important to consider whether such resources actually reach and answer the questions of intended users. This study considers three points of inquiry for one ...
Mësimdhënia e matematikës nëpërmjet problemeve klasike
(Albanian J. Math., 2016-12-03)
In this paper we discuss how teaching of mathematics for middle school and high school students can be improved dramatically when motivation of concepts and ideas is done through the classical problems and the history of ...
