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 ...
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 ...
Cognitive bias in rats is not influenced by oxytocin
The effect of oxytocin on cognitive bias was investigated in rats in a modified conditioned place preference paradigm. Fifteen male rats were trained to discriminate between two different cue combinations, one paired ...
Instructional methods used by health sciences librarians to teach evidence-based practice (EBP): a systematic review
(Journal of the Medical Library Association, 2016-07)
Background Librarians often teach evidence-based practice (EBP) within health sciences curricula. It is not known what teaching methods are most effective. Methods A systematic review of the literature was conducted ...
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 ...
Conducting formative evaluation online
In this article, the authors explore how to conduct formative evaluation of a freestanding library e-course using online resources.
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 ...
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
