González, Carlos; Ponce, Daniel; Fernández, Violeta – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2023
As a result of the Great Online Transition (GOT) that occurred during COVID-19, it is increasingly necessary to understand the digital competencies that are required for online and blended learning in the postpandemic era. Postquarantine, higher education institutions must return to on-campus face-to-face learning, a situation which raises…

Ponce Campuzano, Juan Carlos; Matthews, Kelly E.; Adams, Peter – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper, we report on an experimental activity for discussing the concepts of speed, instantaneous speed and acceleration, generally introduced in first year university courses of calculus or physics. Rather than developing the ideas of calculus and using them to explain these basic concepts for the study of motion, we led 82 first year…

Tovar, Jaime Aliaga; Díaz, Carlos Ponce; Salas-Blas, Edwin – Journal of Educational Psychology - Propositos y Representaciones, 2018
The objective of this instrumental study (Ato, López & Benavente, 2013) or psychometric-type (Alarcón, 2008) was to estimate the validity and reliability of the Self-Efficacy Inventory for Multiple Intelligences-Revised (IAMI-R, Pérez & Cupani, 2008) in Peruvian students of fifth year of high school. We worked with a sample of 1304…

Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Mexican authorities and universities are actively working to improve mathematics teaching and learning across the education system. Thus, efforts are underway to raise the historically low performance in mathematics, which include theoretically grounded pedagogy and curriculum development to raise mathematical knowledge in teacher education…

Rivera-Figueroa, Antonio; Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
A deeper learning of the properties and applications of the derivative for the study of functions may be achieved when teachers present lessons within a highly graphic context, linking the geometric illustrations to formal proofs. Each concept is better understood and more easily retained when it is presented and explained visually using graphs.…

Martínez D., Omar; Obaya V., Adolfo Eduardo; Hernández B., Martha P.; Ponce P., Rubén Gerardo; Montaño O., Carlos; Vargas R., Yolanda Marina – Online Submission, 2020
Chemistry teaching learning is considered as difficult and boring. The definition of play, based on authors such as Freud, Piaget and Vigotsky, is presented as a stimulating, pleasant and voluntary activity that in the student facilitates his learning and encompasses the different facets of his physical, psychic, social and emotional development.…

Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos; Rivera-Figueroa, Antonio – Mathematics and Computer Education, 2011
It is common to see, in the books on calculus, primitives of functions (some authors use the word "antiderivative" instead of primitive). However, the majority of authors pay scant attention to the domains over which the primitives are valid, which could lead to errors in the evaluation of definite integrals. In the teaching of calculus, in…

Ponce, Carlos; Powell, Lafayette – 1968
The 2 sections of the document are concerned with the problem of teaching migrant children and a possible approach to doing the job more effectively. The first section is devoted to describing the life and deplorable living conditions of Puerto Rican and Negro migrant workers. The experiences encountered by the children in such an environment are…

Ponce, Carlos; Comer, Brendon – 2003
Some health researchers have used the concept of acculturation to explain health behaviors or illnesses prevalent among Hispanic people. This paper reviews studies in health, educational, and social science research among Hispanics and argues that acculturation studies are seriously limited by several basic conceptual and methodological problems.…

Kear, Gareth; Albarran, Carlos Ponce-de-Leon; Walsh, Frank C. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2005
Undergraduates from chemical engineering, applied chemistry, and environmental science courses, together with first-year postgraduate research students in electrochemical technology, are provided with an experiment that demonstrates the reduction of dissolved oxygen in aerated seawater at 25°C. Oxygen reduction is examined using linear sweep…
