Haus, Jana Maria – Research in Science Education, 2020
This work uses new materialist perspectives (Barad 2007; Lenz Taguchi 2014; Rautio in "Children's Geographies," 11(4), 394-408, 2013) to examine an exploration of concepts as agents and the question how intra-action of human and non-human bodies lead to the investigation of scientific concepts, relying on an article by de Freitas and…

English, Lyn D.; King, Donna T.; Hudson, Peter; Dawes, Les – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014
The authors developed The Paper Plane Challenge as one of a three-part response to The Aerospace Engineering Challenge. The Aerospace Engineering Challenge was the second of three multi-part activities that they had developed with the teachers during the year. Their aim was to introduce students to the exciting world of engineering, where they…

Mašát, Milan – Journal of Pedagogical Research, 2019
The paper aims to introduce opportunities for the presentation of the theme of Shoah within institutional education. In the article we deal in detail with the inclusion of a defined phenomenon in the teaching of literary education. The artistic narratives are a suitable standard for familiarizing pupils with the given subject, both in a factual…

KarimiFardinpour, Younes; Gooya, Zahra – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper concerns "planes-coordination" and "long-term-prediction" difficulties. These are specifically the case when students attempt to visualize solution curves of autonomous differential equations for predicting the long-term behavior of various initial conditions. To address these issues, a study was conducted in which…

Gerlach, Jonathan W. – Science and Children, 2010
How many of our students come to the classroom with little background knowledge about the world around them and how things work? To help students develop conceptual understanding and explore the design process, the author brought the NASA "Engineering Design Challenges" program to his school district, redeveloped for elementary students. In this…

Elbadawi, Isam; McWilliams, Douglas L.; Tetteh, Edem G. – Simulation & Gaming, 2010
Finding appropriate interactive exercises to increase students' learning in technical topic courses is always challenging to educators. In this study, several paper plane hands-on simulation exercises were developed, used, and tested in a lean manufacturing course for beginning college students. A pretest and posttest was used to assess the…

Duda, Michal; Rafalska-Lasocha, Alicja; Lasocha, Wieslaw – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Three-dimensional symmetry plays a crucial role in crystallography education. The educational process can be facilitated by introducing the analysis of friezes and plane patterns such as parquets before presenting more sophisticated crystal structures. Analysis of the symmetry of parquets can serve as an opportunity to follow the full routine of…

Heineke, Amy J.; Papola-Ellis, Aimee; Davin, Kristin J.; Cohen, Sarah; Roudebush, Amanda; Wright-Costello, Beth; Fendt, Carol – Language, Culture and Curriculum, 2019
The population of English learners (ELs) continues to grow in schools across the United States and around the world. In this article, we share one urban university's collaborative approach to building educational capacity for cultural and linguistic diversity through professional development efforts that brought together stakeholders from…

Kurtulus, Aytaç – Online Submission, 2019
The aim of this study was to improve pre-service teachers' ability to infer cross-sections of geometric solids with Wolfram demonstrations and Mathematica in Analytic Geometry II course. The study was conducted with third year students studying Elementary Mathematics Education. In this study, the pre-test--post-test control group design was used.…

Sheehan, Norman T.; Gamble, Edward N. – Journal of Management Education, 2010
Value chain analysis is widely taught in business schools and applied by practitioners to improve business performance. Despite its ubiquity, many students struggle to understand and apply value chain concepts in practice. JetFighter uses a complex manufacturing process (making intricate paper planes) to provide students an opportunity to enhance…

Czerniewicz, L. – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2010
This paper uses the literature of educational technology as the site of analysis in order to map the field of educational technology. Having considered Kuhn and Bourdieu's theories, the paper frames the analysis of the field in Bernsteinian terms as a horizontal knowledge structure in a vertical knowledge discourse. Using the concepts of…

Pathak, Praveen; Patel, Yogita – Physics Education, 2020
A phone emitting sound of a fixed frequency is sliding on an inclined plane and approaching a second phone kept at the bottom of the plane. The detected frequency versus time data by the second phone are used to calculate the acceleration of the sliding phone. The primary objective of this paper is to calculate the sliding friction between the…

Kneubil, Fabiana Botelho; Loures, Marcus Vinicius Russo; Amado, William – Physics Education, 2015
In this paper we report on an activity aimed at building an electromagnetic wave. This was part of a class on the concept of mass offered to a group of 20 pre-service Brazilian physics teachers. The activity consisted of building a plane wave using an apparatus in which it is possible to fit some rods representing electric and magnetic fields into…

Singh, I.; Khun, K. Khun; Kaur, B.; Kaur, H.; Singh, T. – Physics Education, 2021
This paper describes a way to simulate and visualise 3D representations of the resultant electric field vector propagation for plane, circular and elliptically polarised waves. These polarisation states are obtained by the superposition of two coherent linearly polarised waves oscillating in two mutually perpendicular directions. The required data…
