Burman, Douglas D.; Minas, Taylor; Bolger, Donald J.; Booth, James R. – Brain and Language, 2013

Previous studies have shown that the "strength" of connectivity between regions can vary depending upon the cognitive demands of a task. In this study, the "location" of task-dependent connectivity from the primary visual cortex (V1) was examined in 43 children (ages 9-15) performing visual tasks; connectivity maxima were identified for a visual…

Niketic, Nemanja; Milanovic, Vitomir; Radovanovic, Jelena – European Journal of Physics, 2012

In this paper we provide a detailed analysis of the energy position and type of transmission maxima in rectangular quantum wells (QWs), taking into consideration the difference of electron effective masses in the barrier and well layers. Particular attention is given to transmission maxima that are less than unity and the implications of effective…

Morante, Antonio; Vallejo, Jose A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012

We exhibit a simple model of a plane landing that involves only basic concepts of differential calculus, so it is suitable for a first-year calculus lab. We use the computer algebra system Maxima and the interactive geometry software GeoGebra to do the computations and graphics. (Contains 5 figures and 1 note.)

Mihas, Pavlos – Physics Education, 2012

Fermat's principle is considered as a unifying concept. It is usually presented erroneously as a "least time principle". In this paper we present some software that shows cases of maxima and minima and the application of Fermat's principle to the problem of focusing in lenses. (Contains 12 figures.)

Fedriani, Eugenio M.; Moyano, Rafael – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2011

Coming from the Macsyma system and adapted to the Common Lisp standard, Maxima can be regarded as a tool for a frequent use in the mathematics classroom. The main aim of this work is to show some possibilities of Maxima and its graphical interface through our experience as Mathematics teachers in Business degrees, although it can be easily spread…

Xue, Linting; Lynch, Collin F.; Chi, Min – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2017

Augmented Graph Grammars are a graph-based rule formalism that supports rich relational structures. They can be used to represent complex social networks, chemical structures, and student-produced argument diagrams for automated analysis or grading. In prior work we have shown that Evolutionary Computation (EC) can be applied to induce…

Garcia, Alfonsa; Garcia, Francisco; Rodriguez, Gerardo; de la Villa, Agustin – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2011

In recent years, a considerable number of teachers in Spain have been using DERIVE to teach math subjects in High Schools and Universities. This software has been used by the authors of this work as a support tool in Mathematics courses for Engineering. Since Texas Instruments does not support DERIVE, we were faced with finding an alternative…

Rivera-Figueroa, Antonio; Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013

A deeper learning of the properties and applications of the derivative for the study of functions may be achieved when teachers present lessons within a highly graphic context, linking the geometric illustrations to formal proofs. Each concept is better understood and more easily retained when it is presented and explained visually using graphs.…

Mora, Angel; Galan, Jose Luis; Aguilera, Gabriel; Fernandez, Alvaro; Merida, Enrique; Rodriguez, Pedro – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2010

In this work we will present the ScilabUMA environment we have developed as an alternative to Matlab. This environment connects Scilab (for numerical analysis) and Maxima (for symbolic computations). Furthermore, the developed interface is, in our opinion at least, as powerful as the interface of Matlab. (Contains 3 figures.)

Diaz, Ana; Garcia, Alfonsa; de la Villa, Agustin – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2011

This paper analyses the role of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in a model of learning based on competences. The proposal is an e-learning model Linear Algebra course for Engineering, which includes the use of a CAS (Maxima) and focuses on problem solving. A reference model has been taken from the Spanish Open University. The proper use of CAS is…

Ordin, Mikhail; Mennen, Ineke – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2017

Purpose: We investigated cross-linguistic differences in fundamental frequency range (FFR) in Welsh-English bilingual speech. This is the first study that reports gender-specific behavior in switching FFRs across languages in bilingual speech. Method: FFR was conceptualized as a behavioral pattern using measures of span (range of fundamental…

Dvir, Assaf; Tabach, Michal – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

High schools commonly use a differential approach to teach minima and maxima geometric problems. Although calculus serves as a systematic and powerful technique, this rigorous instrument might hinder students' ability to understand the behavior and constraints of the objective function. The proliferation of digital environments allowed us to adopt…

Janetzko, Hans-Dieter – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2017

CATO is a new user interface, written in Java and developed by the author as a response to the significant difficulties faced by students who only sporadically use computer algebra systems (CAS). The usage of CAS in mathematical lectures should be an integral part of mathematical instruction. However, difficulties arise for those students who have…

Ryden, Jesper – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2008

Extreme-value statistics is often used to estimate so-called return values (actually related to quantiles) for environmental quantities like wind speed or wave height. A basic method for estimation is the method of block maxima which consists in partitioning observations in blocks, where maxima from each block could be considered independent.…

Adams, Caleb L. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

Polynomials with rational roots and extrema may be difficult to create. Although techniques for solving cubic polynomials exist, students struggle with solutions that are in a complicated format. Presented in this article is a way instructors may wish to introduce the topics of roots and critical numbers of polynomial functions in calculus. In a…
