Class Notes For Math 918: Homological Conjectures, Instructor Tom Marley, Laura Lynch 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Class Notes For Math 918: Homological Conjectures, Instructor Tom Marley, Laura Lynch

Math Department: Class Notes and Learning Materials

This course was an overview of what are known as the “Homological Conjectures,” in particular, the Zero Divisor Conjecture, the Rigidity Conjecture, the Intersection Conjectures, Bass’ Conjecture, the Superheight Conjecture, the Direct Summand Conjecture, the Monomial Conjecture, the Syzygy Conjecture, and the big and small Cohen Macaulay Conjectures. Many of these are shown to imply others.

This document contains notes for a course taught by Tom Marley during the 2009 spring semester at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The notes loosely follow the treatment given in Chapters 8 and 9 of Cohen-Macaulay Rings, by W. Bruns and J. Herzog, although many ...


Insight And Locus Of Control As Related To Aggression In Individuals With Severe Mental Illness (Smi), Bethany L. Ridling 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Insight And Locus Of Control As Related To Aggression In Individuals With Severe Mental Illness (Smi), Bethany L. Ridling

The McNair Scholars Research Journal

Individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) are often stereotyped as aggressive, although research has shown that the majority of these individuals are not aggressive. Nonetheless, closer examination of factors that differentiate high-aggressors from low-aggressors may predict which individuals are more likely to become verbally and/or physically aggressive. Previous studies have investigated the relationship between insight and aggression in this population. Some studies have found a relationship between poor insight and aggression, while others have not. Other studies have also examined the relationship between locus of control and aggression, and many have found that an external locus of control is ...


Examining Attitudes On Organ Donation For Transplant: Amenability To Financial Incentives And Donor Benefits, Karise Carrillo 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Examining Attitudes On Organ Donation For Transplant: Amenability To Financial Incentives And Donor Benefits, Karise Carrillo

The McNair Scholars Research Journal

The Uniform Anatomical Gift Act (UAGA) currently outlaws the sale of organs for transplant purposes, despite the technological advances since its inception in 1968 and the current disparity between the need for and availability of organs. Increasingly, research has been done to determine interest in and feasibility of financial incentives and donor benefits. The author of the current study developed a self-report survey gauging attitudes towards live and post-mortem donation in general, and towards potential alternatives to the organ donation system involving financial incentives and donor benefits. Students at a large Midwestern university were asked about their likelihood of use ...

Information And Communication Technology Literacy Among First-Year Honors And Non-Honors Students: An Assessment, Boris Teske, Brian Etheridge 2010 Louisiana Tech University

Information And Communication Technology Literacy Among First-Year Honors And Non-Honors Students: An Assessment, Boris Teske, Brian Etheridge

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Today’s students should be able to retrieve and critically evaluate information from digital media; to organize, interpret, and apply the information; and to compose an effective presentation that responds to a clearly articulated research problem and communicates to a particular audience. These skills have been of special concern to the honors community, as evidenced by the 2009 JNCHC Forum on “Honors in the Digital Age.” Development of these twenty-first-century competencies, called information and communication technology (ICT) literacy, is the object of a curriculum enhancement project underway in the honors program, jointly with general education, at Louisiana Tech University. Recently ...


Is Mens Sana In Corpore Sano A Concept Relevant To Honors Students?, Kate Wintrol 2010 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Is Mens Sana In Corpore Sano A Concept Relevant To Honors Students?, Kate Wintrol

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Belief in a “healthy mind, healthy body” is as relevant to twenty-first-century honors students as it was to their ancient counterparts. The ancient Greek athlete and the honors student-athlete both share the dedication and discipline needed to excel, and our culture still finds praiseworthy those who exhibit excellence in both mind and body. At the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the library is sponsoring a poster series promoting literacy by featuring student-athletes reading their favorite books. An honors college student athlete will be featured in the near future, a symbol of distinction somewhat akin to Myron’s Discobolos (Discus Thrower ...

What Is Expected Of Twenty-First-Century Honors Students: An Analysis Of An Integrative Learning Experience, Celia Lòpez-Chávez, Ursula L. Shepherd 2010 University of New Mexico

What Is Expected Of Twenty-First-Century Honors Students: An Analysis Of An Integrative Learning Experience, Celia Lòpez-Chávez, Ursula L. Shepherd

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Integrative learning has been identified as a primary goal for university graduates in the twenty-first century. The word “integrative” has been part of higher education scholarship for at least the past ten years and increasingly since the 2007 Report by the National Leadership Council for Liberal Education and America’s Promise, a document that includes integrative learning as one of the main objectives of higher education for the new century. Honors programs and colleges offer excellent opportunities to accomplish this objective along with an interdisciplinary and international perspective. In this article, we present current scholarship on integrative learning in the ...

Honors Students In Crisis: Four Thoughts From The Field, Eric W. Owens, Michael Giazzoni 2010 Duquesne University

Honors Students In Crisis: Four Thoughts From The Field, Eric W. Owens, Michael Giazzoni

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

As we considered the topic and lead essay of the JNCHC Forum “Helping Honors Students in Trouble,” we were struck by a number of assumptions that seem to be prevalent not only at our universities but among colleagues at other institutions. We have identified four assumptions we would like to address in this essay from perspectives that are informed by the scholarly literature and by our combined experience of twenty years working with honors students as professional counselors, advisors, and faculty members. These four observations lead us to recommendations for others working with honors students.


Helping Honors Students In Trouble, Angela M. Salas 2010 Indiana University - Southeast

Helping Honors Students In Trouble, Angela M. Salas

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Although I am no expert in effectively helping troubled students, I hope that the Indiana University Southeast Honors Program serves as a place of refuge and support for all its students, most particularly those who are in any sort of trouble. Because my students, whether in the honors program or in my English classes, are reluctant to acknowledge the existence of any difficulties, I have found the Noel-Levitz College Student Inventory (CSI) and Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) helpful in bringing to light impediments to their success and happiness of which I might otherwise be unaware.

Since 2007, when the honors ...


Listening Lessons, Margaret Walsh 2010 Keene State College

Listening Lessons, Margaret Walsh

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Whether they embrace the descriptor or not, many honors students seek out and spend time with students in their cohort, defining themselves as part of an affinity group. While some view their privileges as well earned and necessary for success, others, who may love the depth of study that honors offers, prefer to see themselves as individuals with multiple interests. They see their membership in an honors program not as their primary status but as one among many identities. An equally important reason that students may not wish to emphasize their honors status is that, when trouble arises, they find ...

Bridging The Jock-Geek Culture War, Bradley J. Bates, Carolyn A. Haynes 2010 Miami University

Bridging The Jock-Geek Culture War, Bradley J. Bates, Carolyn A. Haynes

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In his headline address at the Radio and Television Correspondents Annual Dinner last summer, comedian John Hodgman called the strife that exists between “jocks and geeks” the “culture war of our time.” His speech playfully argued that many tensions in American life stem not from differences in politics, culture, race or socioeconomic status but instead from differences in the ways athletic and scholarly types view the world. As directors of an honors and an athletic program at the same institution, we have discovered that each of our programs holds the capacity to freshen the outlook of the other precisely because ...


Honors And Intercollegiate Athletics, Gary Bell 2010 Texas Tech University

Honors And Intercollegiate Athletics, Gary Bell

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Can there be anything more graceful and more athletically inspiring than a downhill slalom racer carving between the gates and proceeding at stunning speeds to vie for a medal? As a passionate skier, my personal favorites are downhill races and ski jumps, but whether it be ice dancing, figure skating competitions, triathlons, or even snowboarding, the recent Vancouver Olympics, in all of their international pomp and circumstance, reminds us of the place of athletic competitions in defining our humanness. It is exactly as the lead author, Sam Schuman, would have it in his well-written essay: the limits but also the ...


Learning Outcomes Assessment In Honors: An Appropriate Practice?, Scott Carnicom, Christopher A. Snyder 2010 Middle Tennessee State University

Learning Outcomes Assessment In Honors: An Appropriate Practice?, Scott Carnicom, Christopher A. Snyder

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In its ideal form, systematic assessment is a legitimate way for honors programs and colleges to gauge strengths and weaknesses, measure the effect of various learning environments, and evoke positive institutional change based on objective, empirical data. Such assessment can take two main forms. Programmatic assessment (also known as program evaluation) is an extremely useful tool for gathering evidence and evaluating whether an honors program embodies the NCHC’s basic characteristics (Sederberg 159) and/or meets its own institutional goals, e.g., higher rates of retention, graduation, graduate/professional school acceptance, and successful competition for national fellowships. Furthermore, as Otero ...
