SCIENTIFIC REVIEW ON THEORY AND MECHANISM OF NEUTRON ACTIVATION ANALYSIS IN GEOLOGICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES

ABSTRACT This study described the theory and mechanism for the simultaneous determination of major, minor and trace elements involved in Neutron Activation Analysis, applied to geological and environmental samples as a sensitive and non−destructive tool. Using Neutron Source, the gamma−rays emitted due to neutron capture have been applied for the investigation of the elemental constituents and concentrations of major, minor and trace elements in such samples. Neutron Activation A...

LOCUS OF CONTROL, STUDY HABITS AND GENDER AS PREDICTORS OF SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ATTITUDE TO PHYSICS IN IBADAN METROPOLIS

The study investigated the relationship between Locus of Control, Study Habits, Gender, and Attitude of senior secondary schools physics students in Ibadan metropolis. The study focused on the extent to which Locus of Control, Study Habit and Gender predicted senior secondary schools students Attitude to physics in Ibadan metropolis. The study adopted the descriptive survey research design of the correlational type. The population for the study comprised all senior secondary school 3 (SS3) Ph...

The need for Information and communication technology in Tertiary institutions curriculum content, implementation as policy and activity in Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThis paper review the need for information and communication technology (ICT) in tertiary institutions curriculum content, implementation as policy and activity in Nigeria tertiary education in order to meet up with the educational goals. This is carried out in respect to the notion with ICT in curriculum, implementation by Koehler and Mishra (2009), Information and communication technology strategy by Johnson and scholes (2004). The paper begins with an introduction of ICT concept a...

Effect Of Laboratory Classes On Motivation And Level Of Achievement In Physics In Nigerian Secondary Schools

This research study was intended to answer a number of basic questions within the given intent of evaluating the effectiveness of lectures with laboratory classes versus lectures alone in teaching higher hierarchies of physics to two sets of randomly sampled student groups, respectively, in Nigerian secondary schools. The following basic research questions were addressed in this study:1. How does the laboratory and lecture affect achievement in physics compared with lecture only mode of instr...

LEARNERS’ BELIEFS & CONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE ROLE OF MATHEMATICS IN PHYSICS

ABSTRACTMathematics is an essential part of what we call physics. It plays an important role in physics research as well as in learning physics. It can be a useful tool or a barrier too high to overcome for some of our students. Only recently this aspect of learning physics has been given more attention. The study presented here makes a contribution to this field of research by providing a first view on students’ conceptions about the role of mathematics in (learning) physics. These beliefs...
