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...
An Inquiry into the Experiences of a Mathematics Teacher: As a Teacher in Canada and as a Student from East AsiaDownload
East Asian students consistently rank among the best internationally in mathematics. This inquiry examined relationships between East Asian cultural values and mathematics achievement of East Asian students in international assessments. I also examined relationships between Singaporean junior...
An investigation of the language produced by a child with physical disabilities while directing a partnered math activity with and without the use of a Lego robotDownload
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...
Herein, an averaging theory for the solutions to Cauchy initial value problems of arbitrary order,ε-dependent parabolic partial differential equations is developed. Indeed, by directly developing bounds between the derivatives of the fundamental solution to such an equation and derivatives of the...
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...
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...
Evaluation of assistive technology resources for access to hands-on activities by students with disabilities, and assistive technology teamsDownload
PEG funded in 2018: two in-depth case studies will evaluate use of Lego Mindstorm robots and teaching materials developed specifically for these as math aids, by students with hand-based disabilities, their teachers, and Assistive Technology team. Quantitative data collected will include 1)...
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...
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...
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,...
