A suitable correlation can be made to represent the simulated distillation of heavy oils starting from thennoaravimetric measurements. This method is applicable to hydrocarbons having an initial boiling point equal or greater than 200°C.The simulated thermogravimetric distillation fit was obtained from experiments with the standard compounds obtain...

Following Piaget's opening remarks at Cornell University this paper was delivered for the purpose of summarizing American cognitive studies. The emphasis is on two current approaches to the study of cognitive growth in children—a modified stimulus-response approach and the approach serving as the basis for the research effort in the Center for Cogn...

... At this time, the field has little evidence of creativity training effectively changing teachers' attitudes and perceptions. Treffinger, Ripple, and Dacey (1968) argued that teacher attitudes are deeply ingrained and change is, at best, difficult. However, they did have success changing teacher attitudes through an intensive week-long training program, but that has been more than 40 years ago. ...
... The third design guideline in the "visual design" theme was: Smart toys should be designed in accordance with the needs of 36-72-month-old children. Since 36-72 months old children are in the preoperational stage of Piaget's intellectual development stages ( Ripple and Rockcastle, 1964), designing the smart toy based on the characteristics of this stage can be helpful for children. Similar to design guideline shown above, Inal (2011) proposed that all visual design components, such as colors, sounds, and animations should be suitable for age groups of children ...
... The experimental group was judged consistently better than the control group. Most evaluation studies using evaluation measurements equal or similar to the trained tasks showed positive outcomes (Ripple & Dacey, 1967, Treffinger & Ripple, 1969, Treffinger & Ripple, 1971. Evidence of transfer to qualitatively different problems is hard to find. ...
... Each lesson presents a mystery to be solved and follows Jim and Lila Cannon as they learn to become detectives under the tutelage of their Uncle John, a science teacher whose sideline is being a detective. Uncle John goes by the name of Mr Search (Treffinger & Ripple, 1971). ...
... When psychological variables are ignored, it is not possible to achieve the intended results in education [5]. A teaching process that are not taken into students' motivation characteristics, attitudes, anxieties, academic self, self-esteem, etc. account cannot succeed [6]. However, schools have abandoned the duty of educating children as a whole and in all aspects, and have become a means of production directed by the markets since the industrial revolution [7]. ...
