Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is simplification of some mathematical theories for the needs of school education.

Design/methodology/approach

This work is a result of long‐lasting regular observations of extra‐curriculum classes with primary school pupils. This research is based on some maxima given in a paper written by Zvonkin.

Findings

This work gives examples of simplified math models that satisfy the claimed concept, accompanied with the set of problems attainable for primary school pupils.

Originality/value

This work represents a set of criteria, with the guidance of which, any mathematician would be capable of creating a set of problems that would lead the pupils into the area of his research not as observers, but as participants.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to describe the initial stages of a year to 18 month project to design and produce a peer designed video game for teenagers for use across Derbyshire Libraries.

Design/methodology/approach

The context is set with an overview of educational games focusing on the UK experience before examining both commercial off the shelf and bespoke games in schools, universities and libraries in the USA and UK.

Findings

The paper posits a specification it is believed will result in a game which is both educational and fun.

Originality/value

Describes the initial development of a peer designed game for young people.

Abstract

Phosphor bronze THE PHOSPHOR BRONZES are alloys of copper and tin to which small percentages of phosphorus (maximum about 0.4%) are added for various metallurgical reasons—but not to increase corrosion resistance.

Abstract

Describes why modern engineering plastics have supplanted or superseded traditional materials such as wood and metal in a wide range of applications and in particular in wear‐part or bearing applications. States that the most important factor in choosing plastic bearings is their ability to withstand wide variations in load over a long period of time, yet operate with very good reliability despite an unpredictable maintenance routine; the so called “fit and forget” ability. Discusses in depth the application of composite materials in the production of bearings for off‐shore and marine use including rudder bearings, steering gear support and stern tube bearings.
