PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS UNDERSTANDING OF PROOF AND JUSTIFICATION AT THE ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE, AND HIGH SCHOOL LEVELS

Synopsis
This paper explores pre-service mathematics teachers’ understanding of the proof process
at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The concept of what constitutes proof and
justification at the K-12 level were examined in a college geometry course designed for future
elementary school, middle school, and high school teachers. Although a variety of geometry
theorems were discussed in the course, this paper focuses on the Pythagorean Theorem and its
converse. Students developed methods to help elementary, middle, or high school students
further their understanding and justification of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

AN EVENING IN THE PALACE OF REASON WITH BACH AND FRITZ: LIBBY LARSEN AND THE ROYAL THEME

Synopsis
This study explores Libby Larsen’s creative compositional reintroduction of a centuriesold theme, the Royal Theme, in which she draws from the Musical Offering in her Evening in the Palace of Reason (2007). In the composition Larsen does more than simply display her composing ideas on the Royal Theme; many familiar musical characteristics and ideas that have in common certain elements of style from the musical past are also used. The work goes beyond the usual musical style of Larsen; it demonstrates the composer’s individual and unique synthesis of conservative and contemporary musical language. The study shall also examine how Larsen copes with the stylistic changes of the three periods and how she reinterprets these different musical styles in the music.

BAD BLOOD ANCESTRY: FROM BARBARIAN TO CHRISTIAN

Synopsis
Should we assume that in “Bad Blood” Rimbaud is asserting the Gaul as his authentic historical ancestors? He is not the only Frenchman to have elected the barbarians as his distant relatives, so has the French Republic and its people; for France, the Gaul represent a common chosen ancestry, a unifying symbol.

My study concentrates on how Rimbaud, through his narrator’s claim to ancestry, whether singular or plural, barbarian or Christian, shapes his identity, and the identity of his readers.

AN ANALYSIS OF THE TEXTUAL SPACE IN DURRENMATT’S ‘ROMULUS THE GREAT’

Synopsis
In this study, the use of textual space in Romulus the Great by Swiss playwright Friedrich Dürrenmatt will be discussed. How spaces are arranged in the text and what these spaces imply will be the focus. This study found that Dürrenmatt gives the textual space a form, a function, and a meaning. The scheming of the textual space, therefore, establishes a correspondence between the characters, the playwright, and the audience/readers.

THE EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT OF ELECTRONICALLY-COMPOSED AND PERFORMED MUSIC

Synopsis
Some purveyors of traditional music may see the introduction of electronics and
electronic instruments as stains on the grand tapestry of music; yet there are many composers
and performers who have embraced the possibilities that can emanate from technology and deftly
woven those threads into this aural tapestry. A significant step toward equal footing with Western
art music is to critically evaluate and assess electronically-composed and -performed music.
This paper will address issues of evaluating and assessing electronically-composed and
performed music, especially as it relates to defining composition, discussing “skill,” and
contemplating musical literacy.

THE INFLECTION POINT OF LAFFER CURVE

Synopsis
The relationship of the tax revenues to the tax rate is often referred to as the Laffer Curve. In this note we investigate the nature of this relationship, and point out that the standard approach to the curve ignores the possibility that its shape may reveal information about the economy, and the crucial portion of such information is conveyed in the inflection point of the curve. We point out that one should expect the Laffer Curve to have an inflection point. Then we discuss all possible choices of effective tax rates, and their effects on tax revenues and national income.

ONCE AGAIN THE CITY THAT I LOVED

Synopsis
There is no denying the fact that city and literature keep a very close relationship. The very great changes that have been brought about by modernism require the “individual’s environmental skills in order to adopt the new way of urban life. As it has been explained by Payne the rise of the city encompasses a very huge “perceptual shift”. Talking about Mário de Andrade and his relationship with São Paulo, it is necessary to keep in mind that São Paulo for him is more than a mere geographic concept, by way of explanation, it is the incarnation of Bellow’s opinion for whom the city is a human experience.

ARE GUILT AND SHAME MORAL OR MORALIZING EMOTIONS?

Synopsis
Our studies test the impact of two self-directed moral emotions like guilt and shame on responsibility attributions about moral scenarios. We found that both guilt- and shameproneness increased severity of responsibility attributions, except for the behavioral dimension of shame. Moreover, contrary to what other theories predict, our data support a Nietzschean perspective. That is, self-directed emotions make people moralize more without necessarily making them more moral (i.e., they tend to be more severe for others than for themselves).

ARE CONTAMINATED INTUITIONS BAD INTUITIONS?

Synopsis
The evidentiary status of moral intuitions has been a source of substantial debate in contemporary philosophical literature. In this paper, I will address this debate by considering the issue of intuition contamination. I will ask whether there are any viable philosophical methodologies we could potentially use to “clean up” our intuitions, and see if these hypothetical “clean” intuitions provide a solution for worries about reliability. Ultimately, I will argue that we need not abandon our moral intuitions, even if turns out that they are not always “clean”.
