A Study On Pre-Service Teachers’ Spatial Visualization Ability and Spatial Anxiety
Erkek, Özlem; Isıksal Bostan, Mine; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç (2017-01-01)
This study aims to investigate the pre-service teachers’ spatial visualization ability and spatial anxiety levels with respect to their gender and undergraduate programs. Data were collected from 1007 third and fourth year undergraduate pre-service teachers enrolled in elementary mathematics, science, and early childhood education programs from four universities in Ankara, Turkey. Spatial Visualization Test and the Spatial Anxiety Scale were used as data collection instruments. The results revealed a statis...
Investigation of effects of bird strike problem on wing leading edge by using explicit finite element method
Dede, Oğuzhan; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
In aviation industry, bird strike problem causes structural damage and threats to flight safety. Nowadays, designed and produced aircraft have to satisfy “safe flight and landing” requirements. The behavior of the aircraft components during bird strike have be to investigated by numerical methods or experiments. Results obtained from numerical analysis and /or experiments have to be carefully studied to optimize the aircraft structures. However, experiments of bird strike are very costly and require qualifi...
Comparing the effect of tablet, desktop, paper-pencil based drill practices on spatial skills of vocational high school students
Şenel, Hüseyin Can; Delialioğlu, Ömer; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2019)
The aim of this study is to compare the effect of using drill and practice applications in tablet computers, desktop computers and traditional paper-pencil booklets for enhancing the spatial skills of vocational high school students. For this aim a mixed-method design was used. Quantitative part was aimed to provide data about the development of spatial skills of three group and compare them. Additionally, qualitative part was aimed to seek how participants perceived about the tablet computer based drill-pr...
Comparative vegetative anatomy of the tribe triticeae dumortier (poaceae) in Turkey
Mavi, Dudu Özlem; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2012)
Triticeae Dumort. is a tribe within the Pooideae subfamily of Poaceae. Major crop genera found in this tribe include barley (Hordeum), wheat (Triticum) and rye (Secale) all of which are closely related to each other. In Turkey, with the several subgroups, this tribe is represented by 16 genera and 75 species, many of which have great economic values. The main objective of this research work is to determine the taxa of this tribe on the basis of their diagnostic anatomical characters of vegetative organs for...
Strategies and difficulties in solving spatial visualization problems: a case study with adults
Kayhan, Emine Banu; Bulut, Safure; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the spatial strategies of adults and the difficulties they experience while solving spatial visualization problems. To achieve this purpose, a case study is conducted and the case of this study is the group of five adults studying secondary or elementary mathematics education in a public university in Ankara. Spatial Ability Test (SAT) and task based interviews are utilized to determine the participants’ spatial abilities; and to interpret their strategies,...
