Chemistry is "the study of matter and the changes it undergoes" (Buthelezi, Dingrando,
Hainen, Wistrom & Zike, 2008, p. 4). Almost everything studied by scientists involves matter.
Since this is the case, it is crucial to...

The purpose of this research is to find methods to successfully extract DNA from duct tape, and to determine if different brands of tape affect the quality of amplified DNA. I hypothesize that at least one method 'Will generate a...

I discovered through interviews that the majority of the students involved in the creative
project preferred working in groups. Allowing students to choose the group members exhibited
excitement. Explaining the assignments...
Learning in detail about the different learning styles created by Howard Gardner
increased my desire to implement the strategies that have been proven to help students learn to
the best of their abilities. Even though at times I feel frustrated...
I learned during the research how very important it is to use cross curriculum to
encourage interest in mathematics. I have learned that reaching one child is worth all the time,
effort and persistence it takes. Being an advocate does make a...
One of those that focus on primarily on scoring is Project Essay Grader (PEG). This was
the program developed by Ellis Page in the 60’s. PEG uses sample essays to generate its basis
for what makes up a “good essay” given the topic. The...

Your child is being invited to take part in a research study to encourage an interest in
mathematics. The study will include real life math problems integrating Howard Gardner’s
multiple intelligences. For...
Your child’s information will be combined with information from others taking part in
the project. When I report the results of the study with others, I will write about the combined
information. Your child will never be identified in any way...
