### PRE-SERVICE MATHEMATICS TEACHERS’ CONCEPTION OF HIGHER-ORDER THINKING LEVEL IN BLOOM'S TAXONOMY

Bloom, Engelhart, Hill, Furst, & Krathwhol (1956) divided the taxonomy of educational into six levels: (1) knowledge; (2) comprehension; (3) application; (4) analysis; (5) synthesis and (6) evaluation. The sixth level is grouped into two major parts, namely, lower order thinking (knowledge, comprehension, and application) and higher-order thinking (analysis, synthesis, and evaluation). Bloom’s taxonomy is revised by Anderson & Kratwohl (2001) and brings new educational taxonomy into (1) remembering; (2) understanding; (3) applying; (4) analyzing; (5) evaluating, and (6) creating. The aspects of higher-order thinking in the taxonomy are revised: (1) analyzing; (2) evaluating; and (3) creating. The last three levels which are defined as higher-order thinking have many attributes or characteristics that distinguish one another; allows the use as a part in learning activities in both the process and its evaluation. Analyzing is associated with cognitive processes by giving, attributing, organizing, integrating and validating. Evaluating includes checking, critiquing, hypothesizing, and experimenting. Creating includes generating, designing, producing, and devising.

draw a line parallel to CD and BA . Since the area of ∆ FDE equals the area of ∆CDE we label each of these areas A. Similarly, the area of ∆ AFE equals the area of ∆ BAE and so each of these areas can be labelled B. Since A + B = 30 , the area of the rectangle is 2 ( A + B ) or 2 30 ( ) = 60 .

Every restaurant has a unique closest neighbour. (Note that if A and B are two of the restaurants, then A may be the closest to B without B being closest to A .)

### Rights and Conflicts in the Management of Fisheries in the Lower Songkhram River Basin, Northeast Thailand

Fish biological research has been conducted by several institutions (Table 2). A high of 183 species was recorded (OEPP 1999), and low figures are 53 (KKU 1997) and 32–70 species (Yingcharoen and Vilapat 2000). Boonya- ratpalin and others (2002) identified 149 species repre- senting 33 families. The wide range reported reflects mainly differences in methodology and sampling sites, or differ- ences in annual flood levels. Water level is particularly significant since most fish are migratory species whose arrival in and departure from inundated areas varies by family or lower taxonomic level (cf. Ruddle 1987). How- ever, the fish diversity in the LSRB is higher than that of the Pong, Chi and Mun River Basin, where only 96 fish species representing 28 families were recorded (Sricharoendham and others 1998) and that of the Tha Chin Basin, where 77 fish species representing 21 families (Sricharoendham and others 1999) were recorded. A connection with the Mekong River, which permits the ingress of Mekong species, might account for the high diversity in the LSRB (Rainboth 1996). The LSRB rainy season is from May to October, nor- mally with a peak in August–September; the hot season occurs in March–April; and the relatively cool and dry period lasts from November to February. The migratory behavior of fish, and therefore the types of fishing gear used, is closely related to this seasonality. Three categories can be recognized, based on season and related water level (Fig. 2). First is the May to September period, when water levels increase with flow from the Mekong into the Songkhram. At this time, fish migrate with the flow for spawning and early growth, and are caught mostly with hook, long line, small trap, gill net, cover pot, casting net, spear, small bag net, and tube trap. The main fishing season occurs from September to November, when water levels Table 1 Characteristics of respondents to interviews

### Practical Programming, 2nd Edition Ebook free dowwnload

As we saw in Section 3.7, Writing and Running a Program, on page 59, every Python module can be run directly (from the command line or by running it from an IDE like IDLE), or, as we saw earlier in this section, it can be run indirectly (imported by another program). If a module is to be imported by another module, then the files containing the two modules should be saved in the same directory (an alternative approach would be to use absolute file paths, which are explained in Section 10.2, Opening a File, on page 173). Sometimes we want to write code that should only be run when the module is run directly and not when the module is imported. Python defines a special string variable called __name__ in every module to help us figure this out. Suppose we put the following into echo.py :

### THE PORTRAYAL OF BLACK WOMEN IN THE COLOR PURPLE AND

making her able to buy almost every kind of luxury, as described by Celie, Shug owns her own car, land, and house, and lots of money. The point she gets married with Grady is really unexpected. As described above, upon marrying, she still performs and basically provides the economy support for her and her husband. The notion that Shug as the money provider while Grady is unemployed ensured Shug ‘ s image as unwomanly figure. As explained in Ain ’ t I a Woman, due to the influence of white patriarchal society, black woman should not be the economy provider as well as not to work outside the house because it was the action of demasculinizing black man. As explained by Bell Hooks, ― black women were told that they had overstepped the bonds of femininity because they worked outside the home to provide economic support for their families and that by so doing they had de-masculinized black men ‖ (1981, p. 75), this was the black matriarchs predicate came from. Black matriarchs predicate applied to female breadwinner, female-headed households, and the figure of domineering black woman inside the house. Instead of giving black woman positive power in the house, this predicates resulted on bad image on them. They were being said as paying less-respect to their husbands, and being labeled as unladylike/unwomanly.

### Oxidative stress in the male germ line a

Since spermatozoa have no capacity for DNA repair (Drost and Lee, 1995), it is the oocyte that shoulders the responsibility for repairing the genetic damage brought into the zygote by the fertilizing spermatozoon (Matsuda and Tobari, 1989). If DNA damage is not repaired at this stage, checkpoint controls will be exerted at each cleavage division and cells still found to contain damaged genes, will be deleted by apoptosis. Such a mechanism could readily explain the observed association between DNA damage in human spermatozoa and high rates of fragmentation in embryos generated by assisted conception therapy (Morris et al., 2002; Tomsu et al., 2002). However, if the mutations introduced by such mechanisms are sufficiently subtle, they will escape recognition and have the potential to interfere with the health and wellbeing of the offspring. Such a mechanism could readily account for the elevated incidence of dominant genetic mutations, such as achondroplasia, in the offspring of ageing fathers (Crow, 1997). As indicated above, such mutations are not frequently induced in the germ line of older men, as was previously suspected (Tiemann-Boegge et al., 2002). An alternative hypothesis is presented in Figure 2, wherein the significantly elevated levels of DNA damage observed in the spermatozoa of ageing males are held to constitute a pro-mutational change that then becomes fixed as a mutation in the embryo as a result of defective repair in the oocyte or early embryo (Figure 2).

### A Comparative Study Of The Translation Of Similes In The Novel “The Old Man And The Sea” Into Indonesian

It has also been discussed that Yuni translates the other 9 similes using the other four techniques. According to this table, the application of the technique of using other image which is familiar in the target language to 2 similes or 3,92% of the total creates 100% less readable translations. The same result can be seen in the application of the technique of translating the simile by addition to only one simile or 1,96% of the total data which also creates a 100% less readable translation. Besides, the application of the technique of translating the simile by reduction to 4 similes or 7,84% of the total data can create 3 readable translations (75%) while 1 simile translation (25%) is considered less readable. On the other hand, the application of the technique of translating the simile without comparison to the other two similes or 3,92% of the total data creates one readable simile translation (50%) while the other simile translation (50%) is considered less readable. The raters also say that Yuni does not give clear explanations about the special terms contained in the similes. This condition makes her simile translations less readable. However, none of her simile translations is assessed unreadable.

### Dual Frequency Microstrip Antenna Fed by Electromagnetic Coupling For Satellite Application

A novel configuration to excite dual frequency operation for Satellite application using microstrip line has been experimentally studied. It is shown that the two frequencies can be easily controlled by varying the length patch antenna and adjusting the feed position and also the length of the microstrip feed line. It is observed that return loss of -27.84 dB with VSWR 1.085 can be achieved for the first frequency at 3.9 GHz and the impedance bandwidth is about 416 MHz or 83.8%. For the second frequency is at 6 GHz with return loss of -18.43 dB and VSWR 1.272 has the impedance bandwidth of 385 MHz or 77.6%. Therefore the proposed antenna is applicable as a new candidate for dual frequency antenna microstrip for Satellite application.
