This article presents notes that Russell made while reading the works of Gottlob Frege in 1902. These works include Frege’s books as well as the packet of offprints Frege sent at Russell’s request in June of that year. Russell relied on these notes while composing “Appendix A: The Logical and...
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...
A great majority of children in Canada and the United States from Grades 2-6 fail to solve equivalence problems (e.g., 2 + 4 + 5 = 3 + __) despite having the requisite addition and subtraction skills. The goal of the present study was to determine the relative influence of two variables,...
A qualitative study, framed within a hermeneutic phenomenological stance, was undertaken to explore and describe the essence of the meaning of help in mathematics from the perspective of high school students. Participants were drawn from seven high schools located in the eastern and mid-eastern...
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...
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 blow-up solutions, we spend a considerable amount of time showing...
In this thesis, we explore the relationship between graphical representations of the 1-dimensional N-extended supersymmetry algebra called Adinkras, compact Riemann surfaces, and quivers. An Adinkra is a graph which was originated in physics to study off-shell representations of the supersymmetry...
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...
DEVELOPING MATHEMATICS FOR TEACHING THROUGH CONCEPT STUDY: A CASE OF PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS IN TANZANIADownload
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 pre-service teachers?” The concept studies were conducted in a classroom driven by five conditions:...
