(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)

[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] The study of Strichartz s inequality is very important in the theory of nonlinear Shrodinger equations. The inequalities do not hold for all choice of ...

#### Ten Challenges Facing the **Mathematics** Education Community

(2010)

This presentation gives an overview of the Association of

**Mathematics**Teacher Educators (AMTE) and discusses some pressing issues and challenges related to teaching and learning**mathematics**, including what is working and what needs attention...#### Goals of instruction : a cross case analysis of five secondary **mathematics** teachers

(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...#### What is the Focus and Emphasis on Calculators in State-Level K-8 **Mathematics** Curriculum Standards Documents?

(NCSM Journal of Mathematics Education Leadership, 2006)

We conducted our own analysis of official state

**mathematics**curriculum standards documents so that we might understand and describe the extent to which states support use of calculators in elementary and middle school**mathematics**classes...#### 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...#### 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**. One aim of the study was to identify possible explanations for why Jordanian students score much lower than many of their global...#### A study of elementary **mathematics** teachers' knowledge of equity

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)

Currently,

**mathematics**instruction in U.S. classrooms is far from achieving equity for African American students. Establishing an equitable classroom environment that results in student learning for African Americans requires specialized teacher...#### 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 ...

#### Development of State-Level **Mathematics** Curriculum Documents: Report of a Survey

(Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum, 2005-03)

Recent federal initiatives, most notably the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation,
have exerted substantial influence on state and local decision-making. One element of
the educational system that has been affected ...

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

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
