#### Prestasiemotivering by studente aan die Universiteit van Wes-Kaapland.

(University of the Western Cape, 1991)

The major objective of this study was to investigate the nature of the relationship between achievement motivation, autonomous and social achievement values, study habits and attitudes, locus of control and socio-economic ...

#### Variances of purity within torsion-free Abelian groups

(University of the Western Cape, 1994)

In 1921, Prufer introduced the concept of a pure subgroup of an abelian group. This concept, which is applicable only to abelian groups, proved to be a very useful one. Subsequently, this concept has sparked off numerous ...

#### Computation of the character tables of certain group extensions

(University of the Western Cape, 1997)

The work done in this mini-thesis deals mainly with different methods of calculating character tables of split extensions of finite groups. Three of the six character tables that are calculated are done with the use of ...

#### An examination of a didactical procedure to engage first year university students in meaningful mathematical activity

(University of the Western Cape, 1996)

The challenge to empower learners whose mathematical powers have been underdeveloped has lead the author to search for and implement teaching innovations designed to enhance students learning of mathematics. Undergraduate ...

#### In-service female teachers' anxieties about mathematics: a reflective study on mathematics classroom practice at a college of education

(UWC, 1994)

The incidence of mathematics anxiety manifesting itself in in-service college students is generally on the increase. Such anxiety does not only affect the mathematical performance of students but also their teaching of the ...

#### Conjugacy classes of some projective linear groups

(University of the Western Cape, 1992)

Given a finite set X of distinct symbols the symmetric group Sx and the alternating group Ax are obtained without further constructions. More interesting groups are contrived, however, by imposing a certain structure on ...

#### Left versus right canonical wiener-hopf factorization for rational matrix functions: an alternative version

(University of the Western Cape, 1995)

It is an established fact that both canonical and non-canonical Wiener-hopf factorizations of matrix functions play an important role in various aspects of mathematical analysis and its applications. Indeed, for instance, ...

#### Singular integral equations and realization: A survey of the state space method

(University of the Western Cape, 1996)

Different methods for solving singular integral equations exist. One of the most recent methods is the so-called state space method. This method is based on the fact that a rational matrix function VV(^) which is analytic ...

#### Computation of the character tables of certain group extensions

(University of the Western Cape, 1997)

In this chapter some basic theory on group extensions is first given in section 1.1 and then a method for finding the conjugacy classes of group extensions is described in section i.2. In section 1.3 we look at an example ...

#### Conjugacy classes of some projective linear groups

(University of the Western Cape, 1992)

Given a finite set X of distinct symbols the symmetric group S* and the alternating group A* are obtained without further constructions. More interesting groups are contrived, however, by imposing a certain structure on ...
