Humble, Steve; Briarley, Derel; Mappouridou, Christina; Duncan, Gavin; Turner, David; Handley, Jodi – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2006
This paper presents an example of boomerang motion in mathematical terms available to students studying A-level mathematics. The theory developed in the paper postulates possible mathematical models that are verified by experimental results. The paper centres on the three-wing boomerang invented by Professor Yutaka Nishiyama.

Bessarabova, Elena; Fink, Edward L.; Turner, Monique – Human Communication Research, 2013
This study (N = 143) examined the effects of freedom threat on cognitive structures, using recycling as its topic. The results of a 2(Freedom Threat: low vs. high) x 2(Postscript: restoration vs. filler) plus 1(Control) experiment indicated that, relative to the control condition, high freedom threat created a boomerang effect for the targeted…

Lifsey, John Eric – ProQuest LLC, 2010
The transition from middle school to high school is a difficult time for many students. Students struggle in three areas: academics, social interaction, and school procedures. Statistics show that many students fall behind academically and are not promoted to the 10 th grade. Research also indicates schools who implement a well thought out…

Kallman, Davi – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2017
Individuals with disabilities comprise the largest minority group in the world, yet they are the most underrepresented minority group in higher education, the job market and entertainment media such as literature. This population is often underrepresented because of the overlapping physical, attitudinal and policy barriers that prevent them from…

King, Allen L. – American Journal of Physics, 1975
Describes an experimental project on boomerangs designed for an undergraduate course in classical mechanics. The students designed and made their own boomerangs, devised their own procedures, and carried out suitable measurements. Presents some of their data and a simple analysis for the two-bladed boomerang. (Author/MLH)

Dickenson-Jones, Amelia – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2008
When ethnomathematical ideas, that is, the mathematical ideas of different cultural groups, are included in mathematics curriculum texts they can become part of the learning experience in various ways. Once included in western classroom mathematics texts, the ethnomathematical ideas become transformed. The transformations involve changes in form…

Park, Hee Sun; Levine, Timothy R.; Kingsley Westerman, Catherine Y.; Orfgen, Tierney; Foregger, Sarah – Human Communication Research, 2007
Involvement has long been theoretically specified as a crucial factor determining the persuasive impact of messages. In social judgment theory, ego-involvement makes people more resistant to persuasion, whereas in dual-process models, high-involvement people are susceptible to persuasion when argument quality is high. It is argued that these…
