  1. 1. Approaching Curriculum Resources : Examining the potential of textbooks and teacher guides to support mathematics learning and teaching

    Author : Linda Ahl; Andreas Ryve; Skott Skott; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : Didactics; didaktik;

    Abstract : The driving forces of conducting the two studies presented in this thesis are: the strong position of curriculum resources in the mathematics classroom in general; teachers’ faith in curriculum resources to convey the intentions and goals of mathematics education; and the expected benefits to mathematics education through expanding the knowledge base of research in the area of curriculum resources in general, and teacher guides in particular. This thesis builds upon two studies conducted in Sweden. READ MORE

    Abstract : Knowledge about spatial and temporal variability of hydrological processes is central for sustainable water-resources management, and such knowledge is created from observational data. Hydrologic models are necessary for prediction for time periods and areas lacking data, but are affected by observational uncertainties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Kinh Settlers in Viet Nam’s Northern Highlands : Natural Resources Management in a Cultural Context

    Author : Mats Lundberg; Anders Hjort af Ornäs; Hans Holmén; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Viet Nam; northern mountains; highlands; wet rice agriculture; upland agriculture; shifting cultivation; natural resources use; local knowledge; culture; ethnicity; Naturresurser; Vietnam; etniska grupper; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : This study deals with the Kinh (or Viet) majority people who have migrated from the lowland Red River Delta to the mountainous areas of northern Viet Nam, and their adjustment to a new social and physical environment. Its aim is to analyse the social and cultural consequences for these migrants when settling in communities populated with people who belong to the national ethnic minorities (the Tày, the Giay and the Ngan peoples).

  4. 4. Modelling water resources despite data limitations in Tanzania’s Kilombero Valley

    Author : William Senkondo; Steve W. Lyon; Chong-Yu Xu; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrological modelling; Recession analysis; Remote sensing; Water resources; Evapotranspiration; Transmissivity; SWAT model; Kilombero Valley; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Water is a vital resource for survival on the Earth. Sustainable management of water resources is therefore required for the wellbeing of present and future generations. A cornerstone of water resources management is scientific guidance supported by relevant data (in terms of quantity and quality). READ MORE

  5. 5. World oil supply and unconventional resources : Bottom-up perspectives on tight oil production

    Author : Henrik Wachtmeister; Mikael Höök; Roger Bentley; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; oil supply; oil production; unconventional resources; tight oil; shale oil; bottom-up model; projections; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : Oil is the world’s largest primary energy source. It dominates the transportation sector which underpins the world economy. Yet, oil is a nonrenewable resource, destined not to last forever. In the mid-2000s global conventional oil production stagnated, leading to rising oil prices and fears of permanent oil scarcity.
