    Abstract : Children’s early mathematics learning and development have become a topic of increasing interest over the past decade since early mathematical knowledge and skills have been shown to be a strong predictor of later mathematics performance. Understanding how children develop mathematical knowledge and skills and how they can be supported in their early learning could thus prove to be a vital component in promoting learning of more formal mathematics.

  2. 2. Position Estimation in Uncertain Radio Environments and Trajectory Learning

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Yuxin Zhao; Fredrik Gunnarsson; Fredrik Gustafsson; Carsten Fritsche; Henk Wymeersch; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : To infer the hidden states from the noisy observations and make predictions based on a set of input states and output observations are two challenging problems in many research areas. Examples of applications many include position estimation from various measurable radio signals in indoor environments, self-navigation for autonomous cars, modeling and predicting of the traffic flows, and flow pattern analysis for crowds of people.

    Abstract : Our world presents us with dangers and opportunities. Some of these dangers and opportunities are easier to handle if two or more individuals learn to cooperate. This thesis contributes five papers about cooperation, learning and catastrophic risk. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mathematics teachers' conceptions about equations

    University dissertation from Helsinki : University of Helsinki

    Author : Iiris Attorps; [2006]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; algebra; conception; equation; learning; mathematics teacher; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Education Subject didactics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Pedagogik Ämnesdidaktik; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to describe and to clarify the mathematics teachers’ subject matter and pedagogical content conceptions about equations. As the basis of these conceptions, the teachers’ experiences of the concept learning of equations from their own school time are described. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Mathematical Reasoning being told or finding out

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Mathias Norqvist; Johan Lithner; Bert Jonsson; Catarina Rudälv; Kristina Juter; [2016]
