Edge, Douglas; Ashlock, Robert B. – Alberta Journal of Educational Research, 1982
Utilizes 42 second-grade rural students to determine if using multiembodiments rather than a single embodiment of concepts related to three-digit numbers would result in greater understanding of selected place value concepts. Reveals no significant differences on the group main effect or group-by-time interactions. (AH)

Mohanty, R. K.; Arora, Urvashi – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2002
Three level-implicit finite difference methods of order four are discussed for the numerical solution of the mildly quasi-linear second-order hyperbolic equation A(x, t, u)u[subscript xx] + 2B(x, t, u)u[subscript xt] + C(x, t, u)u[subscript tt] = f(x, t, u, u[subscript x], u[subscript t]), 0 less than x less than 1, t greater than 0 subject to…

Kaput, Jim – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 1994
Comments on the Fraction Project presented in this same issue. Examines the choice of appropriate perspectives on the phenomena induced and observed and the generalizability of the results. Investigates the phenomena as involving student attunement to constraints built into the computer-based learning environments and in terms of explicit…

Gal-Ezer, J.; Zwas, G. – Mathematics and Computer Education, 1990
Elementary error estimation in the approximation of functions by polynomials as a computational assignment, error-bounding functions and error bounds, and the choice of interpolation points are discussed. Precalculus and computer instruction are used on some of the calculations. (KR)

Christian, David – Journal of World History, 1991
Urges an approach to the teaching of history that takes the largest possible perspective, crossing time as well as space. Discusses the problems and advantages of such an approach. Describes a course on "big" history that begins with time, creation myths, and astronomy, and moves on to paleontology and evolution. (DK)
