Clinical variability in arch wires: A preliminary study evaluating mechanical and surface characteristics of two different sized rectangular stainless steel wiresDownload
Experimental characterization of arch wires has been performed in many previous studies; however with the advent of new arch wire materials being introduced, some new experimental methods and characterization are required. Since literature is available for comparison, this paper examines...
Effect of Room Size on Geometry and Features Cue Preference during Reorientation: Modulating Encoding Strength or Cue WeightingDownload
Three experiments investigated how the room size affects preferential use of geometric and non-geometric cues during reorientation inside a room. We hypothesized that room size may affect preferential use of geometric and non-geometric cues by affecting the encoding of the cues (the encoding...
• Assessment’s purpose is primarily as evidence to improve future teaching and learning in math class. • Reform in classroom-based mathematics assessment has not followed pace with reforms in teaching and learning. • Categories of assessment as formative (assessment for and as learning) and...
The Effect on Elastic Modulus of Rigid-Matrix Tubular Composite Braid Radius and Braid Angle Change Under Tensile LoadingDownload
The objective of this paper is to assess changes in braid radius and braid angle of braided composite tubes under tensile loading using stereomicroscope digital image correlation (DIC) based optical measurement techniques. Using this approach, displacement fields were calculated and three...
The role of geometric and non-geometric environmental cues in reorientation: Pigeons’ and humans’ use of relative wall lengths, angular information, and featuresDownload
The purpose of the following studies was to explore how humans and pigeons encode and use the geometric and featural information of their environments to orient and navigate. Chapters 1 and 2 examine the use of angular amplitude and relative wall length information in parallelogram-shaped...
What We Make for Ourselves: Interconnections of Geometry, Science, and Politics in Hobbes’ System of IdeasDownload
This thesis is an attempt to locate Hobbes’ civil philosophy in the context of his theory of science, which is a theory primarily about how to acquire the knowledge of causes and effects. By working through the reasons why Hobbes praises geometry, this thesis will explain why he believes that...
