Harvey, Nigel; Reimers, Stian – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2013
People's forecasts from time series underestimate future values for upward trends and overestimate them for downward ones. This trend damping may occur because (a) people anchor on the last data point and make insufficient adjustment to take the trend into account, (b) they adjust toward the average of the trends they have encountered within the…

Matehkolaee, Mehdi Jafari; Majidian, Kourosh – European Journal of Physics Education, 2013
In this paper we have calculated the work of friction force on the arbitrary path. In our method didn't use from energy conservative conceptions any way. The distinction of this procedure is that at least do decrease measurement on the path once. Thus we can forecast the amount of work of friction force without information about speed of…

Schultz, David M.; Anderson, Stuart; Seo-Zindy, Ryo – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2013
For students who major in meteorology, engaging in weather forecasting can motivate learning, develop critical-thinking skills, improve their written communication, and yield better forecasts. Whether such advances apply to students who are not meteorology majors has been less demonstrated. To test this idea, a weather discussion and an eLearning…
