Some basic points in control education for industry

Tulunay, E
Najim, K
Control is a subject that heavily relies on mathematics and physics. High level theoretical treatments are more easily understood and digested when accompanied by concrete examples. In this study, two important phenomena, namely linearization and integration are chosen as two cases that are important in industrial processes. Examples of teaching approaches are demonstrated around these two cases. Some simple examples are chosen, for easy demonstration, without the loss of generality. The approaches are believed to be effective in teaching engineering students and especially engineers working in industry. Copyright (C) 2000 IFAC.

The effects of a mathematics teaching methods course on pre-service elementary mathematics teachers’ content knowledge for teaching mathematics
Seviş, Şerife; Koç, Yusuf; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2008)
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of a mathematics teaching methods course on pre-service elementary mathematics teachers’ content knowledge for teaching mathematics (CKTM). In order to accomplish this purpose, pre-service mathematics teachers’ understanding of basic concepts and procedures in school mathematics, use of mathematical definitions, presentation of mathematical content to students, identification of common errors, misconceptions and solution strategies and evaluation of unusua...
Investigation of fifth and sixth grade students’ use of strategies and approaches in problem solving
Alkan, Cafer Sinan; Akyüz, Didem (null; 2019-04-28)
Purpose For many people mathematics is one of the subjects that they have difficulty with. Yet, mathematics underlines many subjects in the real world. Thus, there have been many studies that investigate the ways of supporting students' understanding of mathematical learning such as using different models, real-life contexts, and problem-solving process. Today, many school programs focus on students’ problem-solving skills. Many countries renewed instructional programs in the way of encouraging problem-solv...
An investigation of prospective elementary mathematics teachers’ strategies used in mathematical problem solving
Avcu, Seher; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Department of Educational Sciences (2012)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the prospective elementary mathematics teachers’ use of strategies and their achievement levels in solving mathematical problems with respect to year level. The data were collected from 250 prospective elementary mathematics teachers enrolled in an elementary mathematics education program from a state university in Central Anatolian Region. Problem Solving Test (PST) was used to accomplish the purpose of the study. The data collection tool adapted by the research...
On-line controller tuning by matlab using real system responses
Pektaş, Seda; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
This thesis attempts to tune any controller without the mathematical model knowledge of the system it is controlling. For that purpose, the optimization algorithm of MATLAB® 6.5 / Nonlinear Control Design Blockset (NCD) is adapted for real-time executions and combined with a hardware-in-the-loop simulation provided by MATLAB® 6.5 / Real-Time Windows Target (RTWT). A noise-included model of a DC motor position control system is obtained in MATLAB® / SIMULINK first and simulated to test the modified algorithm...
Alpaslan, Mustafa; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Haser, Çiğdem (2011-02-13)
This study intends developing a valid and reliable instrument in order to determine pre-service mathematics teachers' attitudes and beliefs towards using history of mathematics in school mathematics courses. The data were collected at the beginning of the fall semester of 2010-2011 academic year from 237 teacher candidates in Turkey via Attitudes and Beliefs towards the Use of History of Mathematics in Mathematics Education (ABHME) Questionnaire developed by the researchers. The reliability coefficient of t...
