Affect and achievement: creating an optimal learning experience in mathematics
(20200714)This paper is an analysis of crosscurricular studies about motivation, affect, and engagement in a classroom setting. We further determine appropriate tools for measuring student engagement and affect. Student selfefficacy ... 
An investigation of systems of population models
(20170929)The purpose of this thesis is to possibly help nontraditional, firstgeneration math students in their attempt at learning ordinary differential equations systems of population models with positive coefficients. I hope to ... 
Analyzing the relationship between attendance in hybrid supplemental instruction and tutoring sessions and success in courses with traditionally high failure rates
(20160830)Academic assistance programs have been around in some form or another since the mid1600s, and they have grown and developed just as the demographics of students in tertiary institutions have. The supplemental instruction ... 
Analyzing trends in baseball Hall of Fame voting, through the use of Multidimensional Scaling
(20140101)The purpose of this study was to see if any trends exist within voting on the baseball Hall of Fame ballot. For this particular study I used the mathematical concept called Multidimensional Scaling. This approach allowed ... 
Bayesian learning on dependent features
(20111230)Bayesian Learning is a robust machine learning algorithm. In addition to working well with limited sample sizes, Bayesian Learning also provides a probabilistic categorization. The caveat of performing a Bayesian Analysis ... 
Benford's law and humanly generated prices in auction houses and buyout systems of virtual worlds
(20140101)The purpose of this study was to analyze the buyout, or "buy now," prices in auction houses of virtual environments, such as World of Warcraft and Guild Wars 2. Human players interact with an auction house user interface ... 
Challenges the airline industry faces at present
(20190131)The competition among businesses operating in the airline industry has become highly intense. This has resulted in creating different types of obstacles for those organizations. For instance, companies are now required to ... 
Comparing discriminant analysis and linear regression analysis to predict the alcohol consumption by high school students
(20170530)The purpose of the study is to compare the Discriminant Analysis and Linear Regression Analysis to predict the correlation between alcohol consumption by high school students and their social attributes and grades. ... 
Curves: the history and development of solutions and applications of higher order polynominals
(26/11/2014)The purpose of this thesis is to explore algebraic curves, from definition and origination to development and technological / scientific application. A broad and oftunderappreciated topic, I will begin by exploring ... 
Data mining EPA's Green Vehicle Guide: Profiling and prediction using kmeans clustering and neural networks
(20120830)This thesis is designed to study data mining techniques and explore the predictive value of data from the EPA's Green Vehicle Guide which supplies pertinent information regarding environmental performance for each vehicle ... 
Dealing with missing data in the work environment at King Khalid University
(20200908)This study is about missing data mechanisms developed by Rubin (1976), including missing data completely at random, missing data at random, and missing data not at random. This study utilizes a scenario at King Khaled ...

Differences in Google Analytics between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0: A case study
(200908)This thesis is designed to study the field of Google Analytics and apply it to realworld projects—the official website of Texas Woman's University and MatrixZK. The science of Google Analytics includes storing and analyzing ... 
The discriminant — From a quadratic equation to dynamic nonlinear systems
(201108)Most mathematics students don't understand the potential of the discriminant. Usually discussed while learning the Quadratic Formula to solve quadratic equations, students learn its use for the classification of type and ... 
Dynamic and control of autoimmune disorder under radiation
(20180606)Autoimmune diseases can be developed by exposure to radiation. Ionizing radiation modifies the immune system and diminishing its normal ability to fight diseases. The extents of the modifications depend on the dose rate ...

Euler's Rotation Theorem: Rotating objects in 3space
(201408)The purpose of this thesis is to explore Euler's Rotation Theorem as it applies to the rotation of objects along various paths. Matrices can be used to represent these rotations along with the equation for a specific sphere. ... 
Examining the properties of the standard comprehensive examination through the use of factor analysis and multidimensional scaling
(20160530)The purpose of this study was to examine the properties of a departmental comprehensive examination in the course of Elementary StatisticsI (MATH 1703) as used by the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science in Texas ... 
An exploration of mathematical proofs
(20160831)The purpose of this thesis is to teach methods of proving statements in mathematics. We will be dissecting proven statements and examining the individual steps to gain a greater understanding on how to prove statements. ... 
Finite inductive sequence: Factoring technique
(199712)This thesis considers finite sequences of symbols extracted from an alphabet set. In this case, the alphabet set is the positive integers. The underlying hypotheses is that such finite sequence is finitely inductive (FI). ...
