Ely, David PPreparing Teachers to Integrate Computer Programming Into Mathematical Problem Solving
Doctor of Philosophy, The Ohio State University, 2016, EDU Teaching and Learning
Responding to the call of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the CS/10K Project for the development of models to train K – 12 Computer Science teachers, this study examined the effectiveness of a 3-week intensive summer workshop to prepare secondary mathematics teachers to integrate computer programming into mathematical problem solving. The workshop, using the C programming language, was built off of pedagogical principles that emphasized hands-on primary learning, a well crafted sequential set of learning tasks, applications from mathematics, extensive group work, minimal lecturing, numerous discussions, and a focus on problem solving and logic instead of syntax. Specifically, the study examined if the workshop could effectively prepare and motivate secondary mathematics teachers to integrate computer programming into the study of classical probability problem solving. The teacher participants were measured on 1) their ability to solve probability problems with and without computer programming, 2) their self-efficacy to teach programming and probability, and 3) their change in motivation levels to integrate computer programming into their teaching of mathematics. Mathematics teachers from grades 7 -14 were the target audience for this workshop as they were deemed the most likely teachers to benefit from incorporating computer programming into the classroom. In order to connect with these teachers, classic probability was the chosen mathematical discipline for exploring computer programming. Probability is now taught at grades 6 and beyond in mathematics classrooms, yet many teachers are uncomfortable with the subject. Experimental probability through programming models and simulations offers an alternate route to the traditional, and sometimes unattainable, theoretical probability models. Using measurement tools of probability tests, surveys, and journal submissions, the study concluded that the workshop had 1) a significantly positive impact on improving the teacher’s performance of classical probability problems, 2) a significant increase in teachers’ comfort levels in using programming for probability problem solving, and 3) a significant increase in comfort and motivation to incorporate programming teaching. A follow-up on one of the teachers found he had successfully implemented portions of the workshop curriculum in a middle school class just two months after completing the workshop.

Herjanto, EddyMulti stage approach to mine scheduling
Master of Science (MS), Ohio University, 1991, Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (Engineering)

Quality and production scheduling are becoming an increasingly important consideration in mine planning. Current manual methods of production planning and scheduling are unable to perform the complex calculations needed for an acceptable production schedule which satisfies a specific quality requirement.

This study attempts to incorporate mathematical programming as well as an heuristic approach to mine production scheduling. Rather than starting from a given mine layout, the proposed system employs the linear programming and a scheduling routine to determine the sequence in which blocks of ore are to be mined in order to meet production and quality requirements for a given planning horizon. The areas must also satisfy precedence restrictions which are imposed by the mine method.

An interactive computer programming package which provides possible alternatives schedules has been tested on an underground coal deposit. The model provided meaningful results, that is, generated a mining sequence that met specified quality and production requirements.
