  • Cooper, Alysha R.; University of Lethbridgte. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of EducationEducation, 2017)
    The overall purpose of my Masters of Education (Counselling) project was to create innovative, theory-based strategies and activities that educators (e.g., professors, teachers, and educators who work with agencies dedicated ...
  • Watson, Leanne; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of EducationEducation, 2017)
    A theoretical construct of students’ perceptions of safe and caring schools was developed to allow administrators and teachers to have a comprehensive understanding of how their students perceive care. The construct of ...

    The project presents an overview of postsecondary disability accommodations and an insider’s guide for providing these services. With an influx of students with documented disabilities attending postsecondary, faculty are ...
  • Prince, Brooke; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of EducationEducation, 2017)
    Mathematics could be considered a language in itself, with numerous content-specific vocabulary and symbols. The language of mathematics must be explicitly taught through direct and focused instruction to promote the ...
  • Sharma, Silky; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and BiochemistryArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2017)
    A quantitative model for gene transcription should treat two main features: stochastic fluctuations due to low copy numbers, and time delays resulting from the lengthy sequence of reactions that form the transcription ...
  • Keffer-Wilkes, Laura Carole; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and BiochemistryArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2016)
    The formation of pseudouridine and 5-methyluridine (m5U) in the T-arm of transfer RNAs (tRNAs) is near-universally conserved. These two modifications are formed in Escherichia coli by the pseudouridine synthase TruB and ...
  • Dutta, Anindita; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2016)
    Quantum theory of gravity deals with the physics of the gravitational field at Planck length scale (10^(−35) m). Even though it is experimentally hard to reach the Planck length scale, one can look for evidence of quantum ...

    This thesis presents line-shape studies of carbon dioxide and acetylene, found as trace constituents in planetary atmospheres. The v1+v3 band of acetylene broadened by CO2 was recorded using a tunable diode laser spectrometer ...
  • Hosseini, Seyed Hossein; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and BiochemistryArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2016)
    The spatio-temporal organization of one RNA polymerase (RNAP) along a DNA strand is explored by studying a kinetic stochastic model for transcription process, the first step in gene expression. An explicit expression for ...
