Ge, Jun; Schirhagl, Romana; Zare, Richard N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
A glucose-driven enzymatic filter-paper fuel cell is described. A strip of filter paper coated with carbon nanotubes and the glucose oxidase enzyme functions as the anode of the enzyme fuel cell. Another strip of filter paper coated with carbon nanotubes and the laccase enzyme functions as the cathode. Between the anode and the cathode, a third…

Sun, Chong – ProQuest LLC, 2012
More and more information is being generated in text documents, such as Web pages, emails and blogs. To effectively manage this unstructured information, one broadly used approach includes locating relevant content in documents, extracting structured information and integrating the extracted information for querying, mining or further analysis. In…

Nuryadin, Bebeh Wahid; Nuryantini, Ade Yeti; Ramdhani, Muhammad Ali – Physics Education, 2018
A low-cost solar simulator using a LCD projector as a light source has been developed and tested successfully. The prepared simulator has an illumination spectral at the visible light region and is controllable using a computer. The prepared simulator with controllable spectral filter was used to utilize the current-voltage (I-V) measurement for…

Horikoshi, Ryo; Takeiri, Fumitaka; Mikita, Riho; Kobayashi, Yoji; Kageyama, Hiroshi – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
A unique demonstration with ball-rolling mechanisms has been developed to illustrate the basic principles of mass analyzers as components of mass spectrometers. Three ball-rolling mechanisms mimicking the currently used mass analyzers (i.e., a quadrupole mass filter, a magnetic sector, and a time-of- flight) have been constructed. Each mechanism…

Lomas, Laurinda – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
In this paper, I report on doctoral research in which I studied the changes in mathematical knowledge and beliefs of two Year 5/6 teachers as they implemented a four-week innovative curriculum unit. Such immersion experiences have the potential to develop teachers' understanding of mathematics in the context of the classroom. Year 6 case study…

Porter, Lon A., Jr.; Chapman, Cole A.; Alaniz, Jacob A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
In this work, a versatile and user-friendly selection of stereolithography (STL) files and computer-aided design (CAD) models are shared to assist educators and students in the production of simple and inexpensive 3D printed filter fluorometer instruments. These devices are effective resources for supporting active learners in the exploration of…

Stephens, Wendy – Knowledge Quest, 2012
In the championship playoffs of professional learning tools, this author contends that there is a clear-cut victor. Customizable, platform-agnostic, able to circumvent filters--both browser and network-imposed--RSS is the best professional learning tool. Reading sites via RSS has appeal for those who want the raw information. With a well-honed…

Bailey, Andrew; Hughes, Allison; Bullock, Kennedy; Hill, Gabriel – Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership, 2019
Outdoor activities induce positive mental and physical outcomes despite, or because of, the inherent risk. The psychological mechanisms driving this growth have not yet been adequately explained. This study employed portable EEG devices to track the mental states of competitive rock climbers during activity. Thirty-five participants (25% female)…

Daniel, Beverly-Jean – Race, Ethnicity and Education, 2019
For racialized academics, life in the academy can be marred by racial violence that leaves them caught between their commitment to their craft, desire for educational attainment and development, and the mental anguish that can dominate their existence. Drawing from experiences of the author and other Black faculty members in Canadian tertiary…

Ou, Yingjie – ProQuest LLC, 2016
Nonwovens is a fast growing industry driven by technological research and development (R&D), and one of the major application areas for nonwovens is air filtration. Research on nonwovens technologies has mainly focused on the science and technology areas, but there is very little published research on technology management issues within the…

Plank, Emily – Redleaf Press, 2016
We often filter our interactions with children through the lens of adulthood. View the culture of childhood through a whole new lens. Identify age-based bias and expand your outlook on and understanding of early childhood as a culture. Examine various elements of childhood culture: language, the power of believing, artistic expressions, and social…

Kontorovich, Igor' – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
The goal of this paper is to present a framework of researcher knowledge development in conducting a study in mathematics education. The key components of the framework are: knowledge germane to conducting a particular study, processes of knowledge accumulation, and catalyzing filters that influence a researcher's decision making. The components…

Shkurkin, Anatoly; Lutsenko, Ekaterina; Bazhenova, Natalia; Bazhenov, Ruslan; Bogachenko, Natalia – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The main goal of this work is to reveal social filters in the system of assessing the higher education services market. On the basis of the institutional interpretation of market relations, mechanisms and features of asymmetries formation in the educational services market are investigated. The role of the institutional environment ensuring…
