Measurement

For seven years, Paul Lockhart’s A Mathematician’s Lament loved a samizdat-style acceptance within the arithmetic underground, sooner than call for caused its 2009 e-book to even wider applause and debate. An impassioned critique of K–12 arithmetic schooling, it defined how we shortchange scholars through introducing them to math the other way.

Control of Coupled Partial Differential Equations

This quantity comprises chosen contributions originating from the ‘Conference on optimum keep an eye on of Coupled platforms of Partial Differential Equations’, held on the ‘Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach’ in April 2005. With their articles, prime scientists hide a extensive variety of themes comparable to controllability, feedback-control, optimality platforms, model-reduction suggestions, research and optimum keep watch over of move difficulties, and fluid-structure interactions, in addition to difficulties of form and topology optimization.

Basic Hypergeometric Series, Second Edition (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

This up to date variation will proceed to satisfy the wishes for an authoritative complete research of the quickly transforming into box of easy hypergeometric sequence, or q-series. It comprises deductive proofs, workouts, and important appendices. 3 new chapters were additional to this version overlaying q-series in and extra variables: linear- and bilinear-generating services for uncomplicated orthogonal polynomials; and summation and transformation formulation for elliptic hypergeometric sequence.

Individual and Family Characteristics Much of the work on student achievement stresses the importance of individual factors, especially demographic and family characteristics. The following sections review the research on the relationships of test scores to racial-ethnic group, gender, and socioeconomic status. , race-ethnicity, gender, family income, parents’ educational and occupational attainments). Racial-Ethnic Group As we discussed previously, research has consistently shown that black and Latino students are more likely to have lower standardized test scores than white students.

The models we estimate in our analysis attempt to provide such a map, to guide further research that can provide more-detailed topographical characteristics in the portrayal of family, school, and student achievement trends that we examine here. Moreover, our analyses build on Bronfenbrenner’s suggestion that an essential task of researchers should be to “penetrate behind the label of socioeconomic status to identify the specific elements of social structure and substance that shape the course and content of human development.

1 Often, researchers confuse the “school, an organization, with schooling, a process that individual students experience” (Bidwell and Kasarda, 1980, p. 402, emphasis added). , forthcoming). While recent methods allow for more precision in estimation of individual student and school effects, it is worth noting this skepticism and the technical difficulty of measuring contextual effects. , 1972; Lee and Bryk, 1989; Rowan, 2001; Scheerens and Bosker, 1997). Yet in the past couple of decades methodological techniques have advanced to separately estimate effects at the individual and school levels to further our knowledge about the important effects that occur at each level (see Kreft and De Leeuw, 1998; Raudenbush and Bryk, 2002; Singer, 1998; Snijders and Bosker, 1999).
