Travels with Tom Crean : Antarctic explorer by Aidan Dooley( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two men: Tom Crean, the Kerryman, whose phenomenal feats of bravery in the unexplored Antarctic earned him a rare medal for valour, pinned on him by King George. Aidan Dooley, the Galway man, who rejected a job in the bank for a life on the stage. One story: In this enthralling, funny and moving account, actor Aidan Dooley tells the story of his journey with Tom Crean. His one-man show about this unsung hero grew from an unknown play with an unknown actor into an award-winning hit that has been performed from Dublin to Dubai, and from Broadway to the Antarctic ice. This is a tale of fortitude and courage -- on stage and in the savage beauty at the bottom of the world
Achievement of First-, Second-, and Third-Grade Students on Multiplication and Division Word Problems in Two Different Solution Environments by Aileen O'Brien( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a project in an emerging line of research investigating children's informed knowledge of mathematics questions. The purpose of this study was to analyze the ability of students who had not received multiplication or division instruction to solve multiplication and division word problems. The study consisted of videotaped interviews with 89 first, second, and third grade students. The students read two multiplication problems, two partitive division problems, and two measurement division problems. They were asked to solve the problems in two different environments; the first three problems mentally, and the final three with paper and pencil. Significant differences were found in performance level among the grades and across the problem types. No significant differences were found between the two environments. Included are 3 tables and 13 references. Appendices include questions, a coding sheet, and a consent form. (Dc)
