Brecher, Kenneth; Cross, Rod – Physics Teacher, 2019
The PhiTOP® (or FTOP®) is a physics toy designed not only to act as a spinning top but also to appeal to the eye and to the scientifically curious mind.1 It is currently made in two versions, one from solid aluminum and the other solid brass. Each top is highly polished, and is elliptical in one cross section and circular in another. Its name…

Sampedro, Jaime Cruz; Tetlalmatzi-Montiel, Margarita – College Mathematics Journal, 2010
The golden mean is often naively seen as a sign of optimal beauty but rarely does it arise as the solution of a true optimization problem. In this article we present such a problem, demonstrating a close relationship between the golden mean and a special case of Newton's aerodynamical problem for the frustum of a cone. Then, we exhibit a parallel…

Labaree, David F. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2016
American higher education rose to fame and fortune during the Cold War, when both student enrollments and funded research shot upward. Prior to World War II, the federal government showed little interest in universities and provided little support. The war spurred a large investment in defence-based scientific research in universities, and the…

Rivera, John – Journal of Education, 2005
Over 2,000 years ago, Aristotle wrote a treatise on ethics in which he proposed that there were both intellectual and moral virtues to be developed in the human being. Virtue ("aristeia") was roughly equivalent to the English word "excellence" and the unifying virtue that was both a moral and an intellectual virtue was…

The separation between Church and State, private and public education, is blurring, and coming together, as the government gives families vouchers to attend private and religious schools.

Costrell, Robert M.; Podgursky, Michael – Education Next, 2010
Teacher pensions consume a substantial portion of school budgets. If relatively generous pensions help attract effective teachers, the expense might be justified. But new evidence suggests that current pension systems, by concentrating benefits on teachers who spend their entire careers in a single state and penalizing mobile teachers, may…

Heene, Moritz; Hilbert, Sven; Draxler, Clemens; Ziegler, Matthias; Buhner, Markus – Psychological Methods, 2011
Fit indices are widely used in order to test the model fit for structural equation models. In a highly influential study, Hu and Bentler (1999) showed that certain cutoff values for these indices could be derived, which, over time, has led to the reification of these suggested thresholds as "golden rules" for establishing the fit or other aspects…

Peralta, Javier – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008
In this article, we will show that the Pythagorean approximations of [the square root of] 2 coincide with those achieved in the 16th century by means of continued fractions. Assuming this fact and the known relation that connects the Fibonacci sequence with the golden section, we shall establish a procedure to obtain sequences of rational numbers…
