© 2021, Hacettepe University. All rights reserved.The purpose of this study was to determine middle school students’ perceptions about twenty-first-century learning practices that they experience in their science classes. For the specified purpose, firstly, Students’ Perception of 21st Century Learning Practices instrument was validated for Turkish middle school students. Then, students’ perceptions were examined in terms of learning processes for 21th century learning (i.e. self-directed learning, collaborative learning, and meaningful learning with ICT), thinking processes in 21th century learning (i.e. critical thinking, creative thinking, and authentic problem solving), and outcome in 21th century learning (i.e. self-efficacy for knowledge creation). According to the results, Turkish version of the instrument appears to provide a valid and reliable measure of middle school students’ perceptions about twenty-first-century learning practices. Findings obtained from the administration of the instrument revealed that, integration of 21th century skills to science classes tend to be at moderate levels.

Safe building design by small architects: A design activity developed for elementary mathematics course
AKÇAY, AHMET OĞUZ; Karahan, Engin; KURTULUŞ, AYTAÇ (2020-01-01)
© 2020, Ankara University. All rights reserved.This study aims to develop an acquisition-oriented STEM activity that primary school teachers can implement in the classroom. The design-based teaching activity developed and implemented within this study is intended to be presented as an example of an activity suitable for STEM education focused on mathematics lessons. The activity was developed in line with the design process indicators within the K-12 engineering education framework. The steps of this learni...
Angela Carter’s the infernal desire machines of Doctor Hoffman: A subversive cartesian thought experiment
Birlik, Nurten (null; 2018-01-01)
© 2018 Shanghai Normal University. All rights reserved.Carter’s novel revolves around two opposing characters and two opposing definitions of truth: Desiderio and Dr Hoffman. Dr Hoffman commits himself to destabilize all the givens in the ‘Enlightenment’ civilization of Desiderio by breaking the spatial and temporal moulds and demarcations and by destroying all the symmetries in its logocentric thinking. He aims to create a civilization without the chains and structures of reason in an alternative site of e...
Deformation Classification of Real Non-singular Cubic Threefolds with a Marked Line
Finashin, Sergey (2018-12-19)
© 2019, Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS), Stony Brook University, NY. We prove that the space of pairs (X, l) formed by a real non-singular cubic hypersurface X⊂ P 4 with a real line l⊂ X has 18 connected components and give for them several quite explicit interpretations. The first one relates these components to the orbits of the monodromy action on the set of connected components of the Fano surface F R (X) formed by real lines on X. For another interpretation we associate with each of the 18 co...
Noise prediction of a transonic cavity flow via shear-layer-adapted delayed detached-eddy simulation
Yalçın, Özgür; Özyörük, Yusuf (2018-01-01)
© 2018 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc. All rights reserved.An open cavity flow contains a highly turbulent shear layer which separates from the upstream edge and impinges on the aft wall of the cavity, causing intense noise emission. In this study, a delayed detached-eddy simulation (DDES) with the use of "shear-layer-adapted" subgrid length scale, an enhancement of DDES available in literature, is conducted for such an open cavity flow problem. The results show that this len...
Computational modelling and analysis of porous bleed holes at supersonic speeds
Akar, Gökhan; Eyi, Sinan (2020-01-01)
© 2020, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.Shock Wave / Boundary Layer Interaction is an important issue that should be taken into account when studying inlet design. Bleed holes have traditionally been used to remove the lower momentum part of the boundary layer to avoid separation from adverse Shock Wave / Boundary Layer Interaction. In this study, modeling of porous bleed holes investigated in computational fluid dynamics on a flat plate with and without an ...
