From Frustration to Understanding: An Inquiry into Secondary Mathematics Teachers’ Experiences with Government Mandated Examinations
DownloadSpring 2014
The purpose of this study was to develop an understanding of secondary mathematics teachers’ experiences in a context of governmentmandated examinations (GMEs). Having had my own experiences teaching mathematics courses where students wrote a GME, I had my own understandings of GMEs. From...

DEVELOPING MATHEMATICS FOR TEACHING THROUGH CONCEPT STUDY: A CASE OF PRESERVICE TEACHERS IN TANZANIA
DownloadSpring 2019
This descriptive qualitative case study investigates the question “In what ways does developing mathematics for teaching through concept study contribute to the professional knowledge and skills of preservice teachers?” The concept studies were conducted in a classroom driven by five conditions:...

Let $G$ be a linear algebraic group defined over a ground field $k$, and let $\mu$ be a $\Gal(k^\sep/k)$module.A \tb{cohomological invariant} is a morphism $a:H^1(,G)\to H^n(,\mu)$ of two functors from the category of field extensions over $k$ to the category of setswhere $H^1(,G)$ is the...

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...

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...

In this thesis, we explore the relationship between graphical representations of the 1dimensional Nextended supersymmetry algebra called Adinkras, compact Riemann surfaces, and quivers. An Adinkra is a graph which was originated in physics to study offshell representations of the supersymmetry...

Atkin and SwinnertonDyer conjectured a simple characterization of those Fuchsian groups whose modular forms have integral Fourier coefficient. It has a natural and farreaching generalization, which we will call the vASD conjecture, to vectorvalued modular forms. We confirm vASD conjecture for...

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) measures the dynamic activity of each voxel of a brain. This dissertation addresses the challenge of learning a diagnostic classifier that uses a subject’s fMRI data to distinguish subjects with neuropsychiatric disorders from healthy controls. fMRI...

The kinetic chemotaxis equations have long been used to model biological processes. We will analyze a volume filling variant of the kinetic chemotaxis equations on the torus. Since the kinetic chemotaxis systems have well known blowup solutions, we spend a considerable amount of time showing...
