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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Applications of Subset Selection Procedures and Bayesian Ranking Methods in Analysis of Traffic Fatality Data
(WIREs Computational Statistics, 2016-11)
Nonparametric and parametric subset selection procedures are used in the analysis of state motor vehicle traffic fatality rates (MVTFRs), for the years 1994 through 2012, to identify subsets of states that contain the ...
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 ...
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 ...
A case study of job-embedded learning
Librarians recognize the importance of professional learning as their roles and responsibilities evolve in the shifting teaching and learning environments of the twenty-first century. However, the literature on meaningful, ...
The librarian leading the machine: A reassessment of library instruction methods
This article builds on the 2007 College and Research Libraries article, “The Librarian, the Machine, or a Little of Both.” Since that time, Oakland University Libraries implemented changes to its instruction program that ...
