Mathematics Intervention for Children with Prenatal Alcohol Exposure and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum DisorderDownload
Individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) experience deficits in behavior, cognition, and academic functioning resulting from prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE). Although receiving intervention for developmental disabilities is a strong protective factor against negative outcomes in...
This thesis considers PVol (Percentage of Volume) strategies, which are an often used type of algorithmic trading strategies. In a PVol strategy, the broker aims to bring the order execution speed in line with a percentage of the market volume. This target percentage and the total order size are...
Primarily the conversation surrounding humanities computing has been mainly focused on defining the relationship between humanities computing and conventional humanities, while the relationship humanities computing has to computers, and by extension mathematics, has been mainly ignored. The...
From Frustration to Understanding: An Inquiry into Secondary Mathematics Teachers’ Experiences with Government Mandated ExaminationsDownload
The purpose of this study was to develop an understanding of secondary mathematics teachers’ experiences in a context of government-mandated examinations (GMEs). Having had my own experiences teaching mathematics courses where students wrote a GME, I had my own understandings of GMEs. From...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2016: As technology continues to increase in importance, countries require skilled workers who can produce new ideas, provide new services, and construct new industries. The ability to create these outcomes will be determined by the effectiveness of programs in Mathematics and...
Previous research at the Assistive Technology Lab at the University of Alberta has found that the use of robots can facilitate participation for children with disabilities in performing mathematics activities. The focus of the current study was to describe the language used by a child with...
Screencasting as a Medium for Communicating Students' Understandings in the High School Mathematics ClassroomDownload
When students are encouraged to reflect on their learning, communicate their reasoning and understandings, and develop their technical vocabulary, many opportunities for feedback and growth arise. Research examining journal writing in the mathematics classroom has supported the notion that...
Ferrofluids are liquids with a magnetic colloid suspended by Brownian motion which become magnetized in the presence of an external magnetic field. They have recently garnered a lot of interest due to their wide range of applications in industry and biomedicine. For example, ferrofluids are used...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2017: The 2007-2009 financial crises, government debt crises in USA and EU have motivated investigation into the following six topics: 1) optimal investment, liability ratio and dividend policies when the external risk is negatively correlated with returns in the financial...
