The purpose of the study was to prepare and statistically
evaluate a series of 11 history of science case studies designed to
teach the following abilities involved in scientific thinking:
1. Recognizing problems, hypotheses, experimental conditions,
2. Understanding the relationship of evidence to hypotheses.
3. Understanding experimental conditions...
Our purpose is twofold, to derive a 2-dimensional model of streambed erosion and to develop a solution procedure to solve the equations of our model. The flow domain, which varies in time, is bounded above by a free surface and is bounded below by an erodable streambed. An initial flow...
The purpose of this research was to determine if there were
initial differences in selected dimensions of self-actualization, as
measured by the Personal Orientation Inventory (POI), between the
freshmen who selected co-educational residence halls and those who
selected single-sex residence halls; and to determine if the type
of residence hall...
