    Truman State, ED 27

    Excerpt: ... Return to Table of Contents In order to meet the competencies for 1.1.1, I have included my undergraduate and graduate transcripts from Truman State University, my Praxis scores, and my GRE scores. These artifacts demonstrate my understanding and completion of general studies courses and show my experiences in the liberal arts and sciences. My transcripts show the liberal arts coursework I completed from the fall of 1997 through the fall of 2000. Having a liberal arts background has helped me recognize the interrelatedness of the different subject areas of the arts, communications, history, literature, mathematics, philosophy, sciences, and the social sciences. My transcripts also show my graduate coursework from the MAE program. My MAE classes have helped me identify ways of using my undergraduate knowledge to enhance my ability to teach elementary students. After learning theories of application and having field experiences working with children in classroom settings, I was able to better meet students n ...

    Truman State, ED 27

    Excerpt: ... Return to Table of Contents In order to fulfill the competency for quality indicator 1.2.9, I have included my reflective case study that I completed as a graduation requirement for the Master of Arts in Elementary Education program at Truman State University. This reflective case study investigated the effects of classical background music on fourth-graders' silent reading comprehension. Students were each given the same stories to read, and during three of the six reading sessions, music was played. During the other three sessions, music was not played. After reading the stories, students completed a story map in which they identified major story elements, including setting, main characters, problem, and resolution. The story maps that were completed during times when music was played were compared to those completed when music was not played. The results of the raw data indicated that there was an increase in scores on the story maps for reading comprehension during the times in which music was played. I h ...

    Truman State, AH 428

    Excerpt: ... noc.system Truman State University, Missouri Alexander Horn, main developer Diane Tobin Johnson, faculty member January, 2005 LOR Application We began this project with the assumption that improved student access and use of learning objects would enhance student learning. Dr. Johnson is interested in taking advantage of technology in form of a Learning Object Repository in her upper level communication classes. She believes, for example, that immersion in case studies will help her students engage higherorder thinking skills and thereby learn more effectively. For more information about pedagogic strategy, see the description of the pilot project in Appendix A: Pedagogical Description of Comm 353. A learning object repository (LOR) can be simplistically conceptualized as a electronic storage space for objects used in teaching, a grownup and more accessible version of a multimedia library. The initial challenge posed by the LOR is the selection/creation of the objects. As the number of objects and the number ...

    Truman State, CHEM 222

    Excerpt: ... ons of known concentration, it is possible to prepare a calibration curve for the analyte response. The limitations of the single-beam instrument become apparent when an absorption spectrum over a wavelength range is required. The response of the phototube, the emissivity of the light source, and the intensity of the light diffracted by the grating are all a function of wavelength. Accordingly, in order to obtain the absorption spectrum of a compound, the instrument must be recalibrated each time the wavelength setting is changed. Truman State University CHEM 222 Lab Manual Revised 01/04/08 HANDLING OF CUVETTES The handling of the cuvettes is extremely important. Often two cuvettes are used simultaneously, one for the "blank" solution and one for the samples to be measured. Yet any variation in the cuvette (such as a change in the cuvette width or curvature of the glass, stains, smudges, or scratches) will cause varying results. Thus, it is essential to follow several rules in dealing with cuvettes: 1. Do ...

    Excerpt: ... helium or nitrogen) sweeps the sample into a thermally-controlled column (see diagram). In the case of gas-liquid chromatography, the column is usually packed with solid particles that are coated with a non-volatile liquid, referred to as the stationary phase. As the sample mixture moves through the column, sample components that interact strongly with the stationary phase spend more time in the stationary phase vs. the moving gas phase and thus require more time to move through the column. For example, a non-polar molecule such as hexane would interact Truman State University CHEM 222 Lab Manual Revised 01/04/08 strongly with a non-polar stationary phase and would have a large retention time. Retention time is defined as the time from injection of the sample to the time a specific sample component is detected and is given the symbol tr. While polarity is usually the major factor governing separation, the boiling points of components of the sample also play a role in determining retention time. Components ...

    Excerpt: ... Interdisciplinarity: An Introductioni Michael Seipel, Ph.D., Truman State University, Kirksville, Missouri This article addresses the concept of interdisciplinarity and the role of interdisciplinary studies in Truman State University's Liberal Studies Program (LSP). It is intended primarily for students in Junior-level Interdisciplinary Writing Enhanced Seminars (JINS). In the article I offer a definition of interdisciplinary analysis and examine its pivotal role in a liberal arts and sciences curriculum; provide a brief history of interdisciplinary study as a part of the curriculum at Truman, focusing on the JINS course and its role in the LSP; and give students some suggestions on how to get started with interdisciplinary analysis and writing. Each of the inset boxes found throughout the article summarizes a highly successful interdisciplinary analysis carried out by a Truman student, chosen from the 2000 LAS Portfolio submissions. Together, they demonstrate a variety of ways in which interdisciplinary anal ...

    Excerpt: ... ions are performed by measuring the areas of a number of standards. This lab exercise will be one designed to show you the good sensitivity of the graphite furnace for the analysis of ultra-trace level metals. It will also help to demonstrate the concepts of limits of detection, background correction in atomic absorption (used to deal with complex sample matrix interferences), and the use of standard additions to correct chemical interferences that may not always be corrected by the instruments background corrector. There are three parts to the lab. Truman State University CHEM 322 Lab Manual Revised 2/9/2007 Solution Preparation: A bovine tissue sample will be prepared for you. You will need to prepare a 30 ppb standard Pb2+ solution from a 1000 ppm commercial lead standard. This preparation should be accomplished by performing serial dilutions by mass using a top-loading balance. To avoid error due to absorptive loss of lead, this 30 ppb solution must be made fresh each day. 1. Calibration and Detect ...
