Perkins, James; Ruiz, Michael J. – Physics Teacher, 2018
Care must be taken representing waves traveling in opposite directions. Erroneous results can occur when combining waves with the popular convention where a wave traveling to the right is [psi][subscript R] (x,t) = A sin (kx-[omega]t) and a left-traveling wave is [psi] (x,t) = A sin (kx + [omega]t). An easily overlooked pitfall is pointed out and…

Lynch, Frank H.; Page, Breeanna S. – PRIMUS, 2018
This paper uses the lens of a calculus student to examine different solutions to a weekly puzzler from the radio show "Car Talk," hosted by Tom and Ray Magliozzi. The puzzler describes an automobile that is traveling 75 miles per hour and is 75 miles from its destination. The trip is completed by traveling 1 mile at 75 miles per hour, 1…

Stinson, David W.; Walshaw, Margaret – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
In this essay, traveling through the past half-century, the authors illustrate how mathematics education research shifted, theoretical, beyond its psychological and mathematical roots. Mapping four historical moments of mathematics education research onto broader paradigms of inquiry, the authors make a case for the field to take up a theoretical…

Christofferson, Jennifer; Deutsch, Joe – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2018
While the basic foundations of organizational and coaching strategies are very important to the development of a youth sports team, it is imperative to expand further on what makes a true team. A great team is not created overnight, it usually takes several years. Yet, with the proper mindset, the right coach can quickly turn a youth program into…

Ganesh, Gnanasenthil; Srinivasan, Venkata Subramanian; Krishnamurthi, Sarayu – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
In this brief article, the authors discuss Georg von Békésy's experiments showing the existence of traveling waves in the basilar membrane and that maximal displacement of the traveling wave was determined by the frequency of the sound. The place theory of hearing equates the basilar membrane to a frequency analyzer. The model described in this…

Fast, Danene; Wild, Tiffany – Science and Children, 2018
For early elementary students with vision loss, these seemingly simple questions can pose great difficulty, especially when conceptual development is being established. Because students with vision loss are unable to observe non-verbal cues within environmental settings, supplemental learning techniques must be utilized for learning. In science,…

Mungan, Carl E. – Physics Teacher, 2013
Suppose a block of mass "m"[subscript 1] traveling at speed "v"[subscript 1] makes a one-dimensional perfectly inelastic collision with another block of mass "m"[subscript 2]. What else does one need to know to calculate the fraction of the mechanical energy that is dissipated in the collision? (Contains 1 figure.)

Yelich Biniecki, Susan M.; Conceição, Simone C. O. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2014
People are living and traveling to places all over the world. An exploration of how this movement influences learners' worldviews has implications for adult development, identity, and learning. The purpose of this paper is to present a phenomenological study conducted in the U.S. that examined how individuals' living or traveling…
