  1. 1. A CROSS-COUNTRY STUDY ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INQUIRY-BASED AND TRADITIONAL DIDACTIC APPROACHES

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för pedagogik och specialpedagogik

    Författare :Kadir Isik; [2020-09-10]
    Nyckelord :Inquiry-based approach; traditional didactic approach; science instruction;

    Sammanfattning : Aim : In past decades, teacher practices in science teaching have changed from perceived traditional ways of teaching to more inquiry-based approaches. The driving force behind this change is the assumption of inquiry-based approach being more effective in terms of student science achievement than the traditional didactic approach. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Gamification in Secondary Education - A User-Centered and Interdisciplinary Approach

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Graduate School

    Författare :Izabella Jedel; [2020-07-22]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : The present study concerns an innovative approach to education; applying game elements as a blended learning strategy in secondary education. An exploratory case study of a gamified mathematics course in a secondary school in Sweden was conducted. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Machine Learning Based Intraday Calibration of End of Day Implied Volatility Surfaces

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Matematisk statistik; KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Författare :Christopher Herron; André Zachrisson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Applied Mathematics; Machine Learning; Statistics; Gaussian Process; Neural Network; Options; Volatility; Implied Volatility Surface; Black Scholes; Tillämpad matematik; Maskininlärning; Statistik; Gaussisk Process; Neurala Nätverk; Optioner; Volatilitet; Implicit Volatilitetsyta; Black Scholes;

    Sammanfattning : The implied volatility surface plays an important role for Front office and Risk Management functions at Nasdaq and other financial institutions which require mark-to-market of derivative books intraday in order to properly value their instruments and measure risk in trading activities. Based on the aforementioned business needs, being able to calibrate an end of day implied volatility surface based on new market information is a sought after trait. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Group Representations and a Study of M-groups

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH; Lunds universitet/Matematik (naturvetenskapliga fakulteten)

    Författare :Max Nilsson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :group theory; character theory; representation theory; M-groups; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis we introduce some basic concepts in representation theory such as Schur’s Lemma, induced representations and M-groups. These concepts are then used in particular on a group G_96 of order 96, in order to determine its irreducible representations and its character table. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Systems of linear nonautonomous differential equations - Instability and eigenvalues with negative real part

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH; Lunds universitet/Matematik (naturvetenskapliga fakulteten)

    Författare :Jenny Riesbeck; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : For an autonomous system of linear differential equations we are able to determine stability and instability with classical criteria, by looking at the eigenvalues. If the system is stable, all the eigenvalues have negative real part and if the system is unstable, there exist at least one eigenvalue with positive real part. LÄS MER
