(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)

Teacher goals are an understudied component of teacher thinking. Teacher goals uncover the composite of knowledge, beliefs, and values and direction that underlie teachers' actions. In this study five experienced secondary

**mathematics**teachers were...#### Large-amplitude solitary water waves with discontinuous vorticity

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

Consider a two-dimensional body of water with constant density which lies below a vacuum. The ocean bed is assumed to be impenetrable, while the boundary which separates the uid and the vacuum is assumed to be a free ...

#### A foliated Seiberg-Witten theory

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)

the introduction of that theory to pure

**mathematics**has proved to have great utility for studying four-dimensional manifolds, particularly for classifying such spaces. A foliation is a geometric space that is broken down into disjoint lower dimension spaces, each...####
**Mathematics** instruction for middle school students with and at-risk for behavioral disorders : a survey study

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)

This survey study was designed to investigate

**mathematics**instruction for middle school students with and at-risk for emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). It sought to identify who is teaching**mathematics**to students with and at-risk for EBD...#### Analyzing how grade four teachers plan to teach inquiry-based curriculum materials and the influences on their preparation of **mathematics** lessons

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)

This study documented how Grade 4 teachers plan to teach from an inquiry-based

**mathematics**curriculum, and identified specific influences on planning. Previous studies of instructional decision-making yielded a framework for researching lesson...#### Investigation of Jordanian pre-service teachers' beliefs about learning and teaching of **mathematics**

(2013)

This study investigated Jordanian pre-service teachers' beliefs about the learning and teaching of

**mathematics**, the arrangement, the amount and the kind for each grade. Although the decade just drawing to a close has been marked by the**publication**of improved texts, by the introduction of improved methods...#### Maximal Fourier integrals and multilinear multiplier operators

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)

The first topic of this dissertation is concerned with the L^2 boundedness of a maximal Fourier integral operator which arises by transferring the spherical maximal operator on the sphere S^n to a Euclidean space of the ...

#### Computational neural models at molecular, cellular and behavioral levels : three case studies

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)

Biological findings from molecular, cellular and behavior levels can be difficult to understand functions. Computational tools and systems concepts facilitate integration of information across levels to further understanding ...
