    • Markov Modeling of A Maintenance Facility 

      Zhu, Ying (2006-04-01)
      Real-life decisions often need to take into account uncertainties about many future events. There are various models for processes that evolve over time in a probabilistic manner. Such processes are called stochastic ...
    • Mathematica Outside the Lab: Transferring Classroom Material onto the World Wide Web 

      Baker, Rebecca (2002-04-01)

    • A Mathematical Analysis of Scheduling for AWARE 

      Malmo, Julia (2020)
      AWARE is a non-pro t organization that provides care and services for people with challenging mental health, emotional, and in some instances, physical disabilities [1]. Many of the clients in AWARE residential programs ...
    • Mathematical And Physical Aspects Of Heat Conduction Between A Rod And A Sleeve Of Similar Material And Infinite Length 

      Dillon, Thomas (1979-04-01)
      The modern world has experienced an increase in the applications of mathematics to physical activity. Many physical conditions can be described in terms of partial differential equations, which result in industrial ...
    • Mathematics and Electricity Modeling with an RLC Circuit 

      Havens, Joe (2007-04-01)
      Electric circuits can be useful outside of electronics. For example, an electric circuit can be used to model a mechanical mechanism such as a car’s suspension. This is possible because like an RLC circuit, a circuit with ...
    • Mathematics and Music: Integrating the World Wide Web into Today’s Education System 

      Boehmer, Kimberly; Johnson, Kayme; Peila, Marisa (1999-04-01)
      In the global village, technology continually grows, enabling people to communicate, solve problems, and convey ideas. Students can benefit by using technological advances to enhance their education. The ultimate goal of ...
    • Mathematics Education and Multiple Intelligences 

      Brownlee, Bethany (2007-04-01)
      This thesis explores the utilization of Multiple Intelligences in the mathematics classroom. There are eight distinct multiple intelligences found in students. Each intelligence is unique and every student has a blend of ...
    • Minimum Competency Testing: An Overview Of Testing Programs 

      Perrier, Karen (1981-04-01)
      Probably the greatest alarm to the American Public concerning their education system came about with declining SAT and ACT test scores. The rash declines sparked the realization for the need to examine the school system. ...
    • Mirror symmetry in black holes, elementary particles, and mathematics 

      Romano, Mark (2017-05-13)
      Mirror symmetry is the study of two seemingly different objects that are conjectured to be the same. That is, we could think of them as mirror images of each other. For example, string theorists conjecture that there exists ...
    • Modeling Contaminant Flow in the Puget Sound 

      Trinka, Jordan (2017-05-13)
      In this paper, we mathematically model contaminant flow in a two-dimensional domain of the Puget Sound using a finite element numerical solution to the advection-diffusion equation coupled with a finite difference numerical ...
    • Modeling Stellar Interiors of Zero Age Main Sequence Stars 

      Rasca, Anthony (2007-04-01)
      Studying aspects of nature unable to be measured or observed has been a problem in the field of astronomy. This study looks at the interiors of zero-age main sequence (ZAMS) stars and how they are studied, despite being ...
    • Modeling the Flight of a Baseball 

      Eaton, Steven (1998-04-01)
      America’s favorite pastime became my favorite sport at the age of nine. Listening to the roar of the fans, the crack of the bat, and the hum of the ball captured my heart. Every time I step on the field, my hearts starts ...
    • Modeling Traffic Through Intersections 

      Griffith, Mark (2015-04-01)
      This paper analyzes the effects traffic flow controllers, such as stop signs and stop lights, have on the flow of traffic through a 4-way intersection. In particular, we investigate which controller (either using 2 stop ...
    • More than one way to skin a cat: Interpolation techniques in one-dimension 

      Bauer, Jesica (2018-04-01)
      In this paper, we discuss and develop several one-dimensional interpolation techniques. Interpolation is a process for generating functions that pass through specified points in space. In general, given a set of points P ...
    • Music: Helpful or Hindering? 

      Stayner, Hillary (2014-04-01)
      This study looked at the effects of playing music while students complete a quiz. 191 students from the Helena School District between the eighth and tenth grades took an assigned quiz either silently or while listening ...
    • NP - Complete Problems, Turing Machines, And The Proof Of Cook's Theorem 

      Brunken, Laura (1990-04-01)
      here exists a group of practical problems in computer science today for which no one has yet been able to find reasonable algorithmic solutions (those solvable in a reasonable amount of time), yet no one has been able to ...
    • Optimizing Investment Portfolio Allocation 

      Boone, Nathan (2019-04-01)
