Ross, Allison; Rodríguez, Ariel; Searle, Mark – American Journal of Health Education, 2017
Background: Understanding why youth actively transport to school (ATS) has important health, programming, and policy implications. A growing body of research has revealed that there are common factors that influence this behavior. Collectively, these influences can be categorized into 3 domains: the physical environment (PE), sociocultural…

Curran, Mary Carla; Bower, Amy S.; Furey, Heather H. – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2017
Creation of physical models can help students learn science by enabling them to be more involved in the scientific process of discovery and to use multiple senses during investigations. This activity achieves these goals by having students model ocean currents in the Gulf of Mexico. In general, oceans play a key role in influencing weather…

Freund, Peter; Martin, George – Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, 2009
The automobile is a key artifact for understanding the relationship between technology and society. As it has developed into a mass-produced and mass-consumed commodity, it has played an increasing role in social life and its built environments. In its most exaggerated manifestation, in parts of the United States, the car is a singular transport…

Nikolaev, Andrey B.; Sapego, Yuliya S.; Jakubovich, Anatolij N.; Berner, Leonid I.; Stroganov, Victor Yu. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
In the paper it's proposed an algorithm for the management of traffic incidents, aimed at minimizing the impact of incidents on the road traffic in general. The proposed algorithm is based on the theory of fuzzy sets and provides identification of accidents, as well as the adoption of appropriate measures to address them as soon as possible. A…

Fox, Jonathan Franklin – ProQuest LLC, 2010
My dissertation examines the effectiveness of three policy choices in meeting socio-economic goals. The first analyzes the impact of public health education and poverty relief on child mortality in the early twentieth century, when infant and child mortality rates in the United States were startlingly high. During the 1920s, the rates dropped…
