The principal objective of this thesis is the comprehension of students' mental processes while solving verbal math problems about money. The research is focused on pupils in the first stage of primary school and in particular verbal math problems, in which nominal value of coins, quantity of coins and their total sum play a key role. The theoretical part consists of demarcation of early school age, a certain number of anticipated acts by RVP ZV for the first and second educational period, numeracy, literacy, verbal math problems, various strategies on how to solve such problems, basic issues pupils encounter while solving those problems, teaching aids used in dealing with verbal math problems about money, comments on the topic of verbal math problems which appear in three volumes of textbooks intended for primary schools (Prodos, Tak-tic, H-mat), and their mutual comparison. The practical part is launched by methodology of a quantitative research (in the form of three experiments).

Analýza písemně zpracovaných příprav na hodinu CLIL
Procházková, Lenka ; Novotná, Jarmila (advisor) ; Walterová, Eliška (referee) ; Klečková, Gabriela (referee)
Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) is a dual focused educational approach in which an additional language is used for the learning and teaching of both language and a non- linguistic subject or its part. While there are numerous forms of CLIL implementation, it is possible to define universal pedagogical principles for CLIL teaching and planning. This research presents a content analysis of 56 lesson plans for a CLIL lesson of financial mathematics/literacy. The aim of this research was to establish whether these lesson plans reflected the CLIL pedagogical principles, to establish what features the respondents saw as key features to a CLIL lesson plan, and whether/how the lesson plans corresponded to the respondents' theoretical proclamations. Our research investigated also the differences in lesson plans by these two sub-groups. An original lesson plan analysis tool (LPAT) was created for this research. It was used as a basis for a quantitative survey and as a framework in content analysis of the lesson plans. The tool identified eight key features of a CLIL lesson plan. The respondent combined approximately five of the key features with other features of the LPAT both in the survey and in the lesson plans. Both the survey and the analysis show that the respondents did not identify...
The issue od debet relief for women in prison
The thesis deals with the issue of elimination debts of women during their prison sentence in the Czech Republic. The topic of elimination of debts is a hot issue. There are numerous obstacles making the issue more complicated. The theoretical part describes the development and present situation of the Czech Republic citizens who fall into debts. It also specifies some terms, e.g. financial knowledge, distrain, personal bankruptcy and it familiarizes with the amendment of the insolvency law. The chapters describe the issue of imprisoned women who fell into debts and the reasons of this low education, the family background (mostly pathological) etc. Real-life cases and the cooperation of prisons with out-of-prison specialized departments are described in the following part of the thesis. Three non-profit organisations are described in details. The aim of the thesis is describing issues and difficulties connected with debted women imprisoned in the Czech Republic, characterization of the system of professional help in elimination of debts and proposing solutions which could help with solving the problem. The main method of collecting data was observation, qualitative questioning with the technique of structured interviews with opened questions. There were 10 convicted women, five prison staff and five employees of non-profit organizations as respondents. I put together three sets of questions, which were gathered in charts to be well arranged. The thesis may be useful for prison staff, employees of other organizations, institutions co-operating with Prison Service of the Czech Republic for solving the issue of elimination of debts of women during their prison sentence. The issue seems to be vast. The following problems resulted from the survey: all of the three groups of respondents said that an issue was low salary of the convicted, other problems were time given for dealing with elimination of debts, low number, overworking and insufficient professional education of employees of the Prison Service of the Czech Republic. Based on these problems I suggested several optimization measures: Eliminating of debts requires major salary rise of the convicted. Another suggestion is to introduce house arrest, which would lead to relieve the employees in prisons and also the option of eliminating debts. The next steps would, in my opinion, be specialized training of selected prison employees and rapid raise of numbers of these professionals and also co-operation with the professionals outside of prison service. Another of my proposals is building both financially and locally available subsequent social educational care for people who were released from prison. This care would actively extend activities practised in prisons. That is what I think is crucial, because without this help, the effort of the employees of prison service is senseless.

Distraint in the Czech Republic
Košťál, Daniel ; Cahlík, Tomáš (advisor) ; Malovaná, Simona (referee)
Property distraint is an issue that anyone can face at any point of their life. Despite minor efforts to amend the situation, the Czech Republic continuously sees yearly increases in distraint orders against individuals who default on their debt. This thesis investigates possible meso-level factors that could influence the number of these issued orders. Using data on the 76 state districts plus the capital city of Prague, the overall influence of criminal activity, unemployment and financial literacy is estimated. This is achieved by using the ordinary least squares regression, as well as two other unobserved effects models. The empirical evidence then hints at favorable properties of the random effects model. The results confirm the main hypotheses that crime and unemployment are risk factors for distraint, and that financial literacy helps reduce these risks. Auxiliary data also hints at a certain level of correlation between debt default and immigration, which is up for a further deeper analysis. Keywords Property distraint, crime, unemployment, over-indebtedness, financial literacy Author's email: Supervisor's email:
