Writing Research Articles in Discrete Mathematics: A Rhetorical, Multimodal Genre Analysis and Pedagogy
DownloadSpring 2022
This dissertation reports my rhetorical, multimodal genre analysis of research articles (RAs) in discrete mathematics and its pedagogical applications. The increasing demand on graduate students to publish their research in English and the need of these students to write in the key genres of...

Characterizing Population Heterogeneity of Salmonella Motion in Mucosal Environments Using Stochastic Modeling and the EM Algorithm
DownloadFall 2022
Salmonella are pathogenic bacteria that infect many species including humans. This pathogen thrives in the gastrointestinal track of their hosts and propel themselves in mucus with motion structures called flagella. Each cell has multiple flagella that can rotate either synchronously, resulting...

A large portion of mathematics education research focuses on elementary and middle year’s content with professional development about how to teach mathematics often focused using specific tasks to teach certain topics. This kind of professional development makes it difficult for teachers to...

Fall 2020
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...

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...

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:...

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...

SSHRC PEG Awarded 2018: Two indepth case studies will evaluate use of Lego Mindstorm robots and teaching materials developed specifically for these as math aids, by students with handbased disabilities, their teachers, and Assistive Technology team. Quantitative data collected will include 1)...

Fall 2018
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...

The influence of contextual factors on assistive technology strategies for mathematics learning in students with physical impairments
DownloadFall 2018
Performance of students with physical impairments in mathematics are often limited because of the use of handson strategies using manipulatives (e.g., blocks or Cuisenaire rods) to learn early concepts. Two assistive technology (AT) strategies have been used by students to handle manipulatives,...
