DeFrancesco, Heather; Dudley, Joshua; Coca, Adiel – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
An undergraduate experiment for the organic laboratory is described that utilizes microwave heating to prepare 5- substituted 1H-tetrazole derivatives through a (3 + 2) cycloaddition between aryl nitriles and sodium azide. The reaction mixture is analyzed by thin layer chromatography. The products are purified through an acid-base extraction and…

Kinzer, Cathy; Gerhardt, Kacie; Coca, Nicole – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2016
Kindergarteners need access to blocks as thinking tools to develop, model, test, and articulate their mathematical ideas. In the current educational landscape, resources such as blocks are being pushed to the side and being replaced by procedural worksheets and academic "seat time" in order to address standards. Mathematics research…

Rodriguez, Claudia – Journal on Education in Emergencies, 2020
Since 1999, one of the main strategies the Colombian government has used to mitigate coca cultivation is to spray the crops with herbicide, which is carried out from airplanes.

Méndez Coca, David; Slisko, Josip – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
Many physics professors have difficulties to know and assess in real time the learning of the students in their courses. Nevertheless, today, with Internet and the new technology devices that the students use every day, like smartphones, such tasks can be carried out relatively easy. The professor pose a few questions in "Socrative," the…

Powell, Darren; Gard, Michael – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2015
