#### A chrono-geographic look at Mesolithic burials: an initial study

(Landesamt für Denkmalpflege und Archäologie Sachsen-Anhalt, 2016)

Over the past decade we have focused on two interrelated topics within Mesolithic burial studies, the relationship between burial number and burial date, and the chronology of Mesolithic sites with burials. Related to this ...

#### The Brachistochrone Problem: Mathematics for a Broad Audience via a Large Context Problem

(Montana Council of Teachers of Mathematics & Information Age Publishing, 2008)

Large context problems (LCP) are useful in teaching the history of science. In this article we consider the brachistochrone problem in a context stretching from Euclid through the Bernoullis. We highlight a variety of ...

#### Attainable lengths for circular binary words avoiding k-powers

(The Belgian Mathematical Society, 2005)

We show that binary circular words of length n avoiding 7/3+ powers exist
for every sufficiently large n. This is not the case for binary circular words
avoiding k+ powers with k < 7/3

#### Mathematical Concepts and Proofs from Nicole Oresme: Using the History of Calculus to Teach Mathematics

(2005)

This paper examines the mathematical work of the French bishop, Nicole Oresme (c. 1323–1382), and his contributions towards the development of the concept of graphing functions and approaches to investigating infinite ...

#### Multi-dimensional sets recognizable in all abstract numeration systems

(EDP Sciences, 2011)

We prove that the subsets of Nd that are S-recognizable for all abstract numeration systems S are exactly the 1-recognizable sets. This generalizes a result of Lecomte and Rigo in the one-dimensional setting.

#### Combinatorics and Algorithmics of Strings

(Dagstuhl Publishing, 2014-03-09)

Strings (aka sequences or words) form the most basic and natural data structure. They occur whenever information is electronically transmitted (as bit streams), when natural language text is spoken or written down (as words ...

#### Least Periods of Factors of Infinite Words

(EDP Sciences, 2009)

We show that any positive integer is the least period of a factor of the Thue-Morse word. We also characterize the set of least periods of factors of a Sturmian word. In particular, the corresponding set for the Fibonacci ...

#### Teachers' Voices: Pandemic Lessons for the Future of Education

(University of Windsor, 2021-05-26)

In late 2019 and early 2020, governments around the world closed educational institutions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A similar response occurred in Canada and resulted in a sudden pivot by teachers from classroom-based ...

#### Non-Repetitive Tilings

(The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2002-07-03)

In 1906 Axel Thue showed how to construct an infinite non-repetitive (or square-free) word on an alphabet of size 3. Since then this result has been rediscovered many times and extended in many ways. We present a two-dimensional ...

#### Planning for Teacher Recovery from the COVID-19 Pandemic: Adaptive Regulation to Promote Resilience

(Rivera Open, 2021-06-25)

Increased job demands coupled with insufficient resources, typically result in job strain which can lead to burnout. However, in a series of studies conducted with Canadian teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the findings ...
