Tavin, Kevin – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2014
Despite the good intentions of art educators to have students seek and represent knowledge and consciously use language to describe what they see, the things educators think they should see and the signifiers that come out of their mouths (and through their bodies) always reveal that there is something else going on--between them, the teachers,…

Bermudez, Frank; Medina, Anthony; Rosin, Amber; Scott, Eren – College Mathematics Journal, 2013
A pair of 6-sided dice cannot be relabeled to make the sums 2, 3,...., 12 equally likely. It is possible to label seven, 10-sided dice so that the sums 7. 8,..., 70 occur equally often. We investigate such relabelings for "pq"-sided dice, where "p" and "q" are distinct primes, and show that these relabelings usually…

Hess, Frederick M. – Educational Leadership, 2009

One such question might well be, "How many dimensions of space are there?" I mean, it's pretty obvious that there are three:…

Kaiper, Anna – Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy, 2018
