Moreno, Ignacio; Garcia-Martinez, Pascuala; Ferreira, Carlos – European Journal of Physics, 2010
We analyse two-mirror resonators in terms of their fractional Fourier transform (FRFT) properties. We use the basic ABCD ray transfer matrix method to show how the resonator can be regarded as the cascade of two propagation-lens-propagation FRFT systems. Then, we present a connection between the geometric properties of the resonator (the g…

Farias, Gerard; Farias, Christine M.; Fairfield, Kent D. – Journal of Education for Business, 2010
Students are socialized to value grades, sometimes more than learning. Although many teachers are devoted to a learning-centered approach, others signal by their actions a deep-set interest in grading. The authors used a 2 x 2 matrix to analyze potential matches and mismatches between teacher orientation and student orientation. The implications…

Findlay, David W. – Journal of Economic Education, 2010
The author discusses several issues that instructors of introductory macroeconomics courses should consider when introducing imports in the Keynesian expenditure model. The analysis suggests that the specification of the import function should partially, if not completely, be the result of a simple discussion about the spending and import…

Brown, Pamela U. – Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, 2010
The author combines a literature review with a theoretical analysis of the interface between teacher researchers and Institutional Review Boards in higher education. Maintaining that teacher researchers are "creators of knowledge" (Castle, 2006, p. 2), the article explores the lack of fit between insider research with an emic design and the…

LoPresto, Michael C. – Physics Education, 2010
In recent years, short question-and-answer activities known as lecture tutorials that are designed to help students work with and discover concepts for themselves, rather than simply being told about them (lectured to) have become a popular tool for learner-centred teaching of introductory college astronomy. Students on such a course are usually…

van Eeden-Moorefield, Brad; Walsh, Christine – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2010
Those who teach research methods courses may struggle to engage students who are anxious or apprehensive about taking the course. Thus, it becomes the obligation of the instructor to develop innovative approaches so that students overcome their apprehension, learn the material, and, it is hoped, develop a passion for research. The authors present…
