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

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för pedagogik och specialpedagogik

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

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

    Author : Axel Delbom; [2020]
    Keywords : Deep learning; football; offside detection; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : With the increased number of technical innovations in soccer and the progress in the field of AI, this thesis investigates the possibilities to detect if a player is in offside position using deep learning and video recordings from soccer games. A method to create a 3D reconstruction of the players in the scene is proposed and evaluated. READ MORE

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

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH; Lunds universitet/Matematik (naturvetenskapliga fakulteten)

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

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE
