Ways of Teaching Combinatorics at the Secondary School and their Influence on Pupils' Solving Strategies
Strnadová, Pavlína ; Vondrová, Naďa (advisor) ; Kvasz, Ladislav (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with ways of teaching combinatorics at a secondary school. Specifically, I analyzed selected mathematics textbooks for secondary schools in terms of introducing concepts and operations of combinatorics and in terms of types of tasks used. I carried out interviews with six secondary school mathematics teachers and observations of their lessons in order to describe their method of teaching combinatorics. Using results of tests written by these teachers' pupils, I examined whether and how their solving strategies and errors might be influenced by their teachers' approach to teaching combinatorics. Finally, I compared my results with the existing results of mathematics education research on pupils' combinatorial reasoning. The work is divided into four chapters; the first three are theoretical (curricular documents for selected schools, analysis of textbooks on combinatorics in terms of the implementation of combinatorial concepts and operations, selected research about pupils' solving strategies and errors for combinatorial problems, methods of checking the correctness of their solutions. and the impact of ways of teaching combinatorics on pupils' performance). Chapter 4 focuses on my own research which consists of interviews with teachers, observations of lessons on combinatorics, the...
Diophantine equations
Strnadová, Pavlína ; Novotná, Jarmila (advisor) ; Pilous, Derek (referee)
TITLE: Diophantine equations SUMMARY: The thesis focuses on Diophantine Equations. Linear and quadratic Diophantine Equations of two and three variables and some types of their systems are described. At the beginning of the thesis, information about Diophantus, who gave the name to the equations, is presented. Next, equations and their systems are summarized. The main section focuses on standard types of Diophantine equations and their systems and their solving strategies. Moreover, advantages and disadvantages of different solving methods and required mathematical knowledge are compared. KEYWORDS: Diophantine equations, equations, system of equations, Diophantus of Alexandria
Introducing Clinical Supervision into Health Care Organization: The Supervisees' Point of View. Case Study
Strnadová, Pavlína ; Havrdová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Brnula, Peter (referee)
Clinical supervision as a discipline supporting the quality of work in the field of helping professions has lately been introduced in healthcare services. In this context its implementation is being met with specific obstacles coming from both management and the workers tending to the clients or patients. This thesis is focused on the view of nurses working in residential facility tending primarily to children under the age of three. It contains a case study which first assesses the situation prior to starting the supervision process, mainly some aspects of organizational culture and the risks of burnout syndrome, which may reveal both possible obstacles and favourable circumstances during the implementation process. Following is a course description of the supervision meetings lasting throughout one year and the thesis is capped off by another partial research of the situation in this organization after said year focused primarily on the changes and reception of clinical supervision by its participants. Although certain foreseen obstacles such as shift work and hierarchical management have been confirmed, supervision was acknowledged for it's beneficial effect by the nurses. It brought them the opportunity to discuss, reflect on their work, relay information and ameliorate communication between both...
