The Impacts of Multiple Intelligences on Tolerance of Ambiguity and English Proficiency—A Case Study of Taiwanese EFL College Students  [PDF]
Yi-An Hou
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2016.64028
Abstract: The study was conducted to investigate how students’ multiple intelligences were related to their tolerance of ambiguity and English proficiency. Subjects were 173 English major students in a private university in northern Taiwan, including 49 males and 124 females. They helped to fill out questionnaires of Multiple Intelligences (MI) (Gardner, 1983) and Second Language Tolerance of Ambiguity Scale (SLTAS) (Ely, 1995). In addition, students’ English scores and English levels of Taiwan College Entrance Exam were used as their English proficiency. All available data received from the returned questionnaires were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics derived from SPSS 17. The results revealed that a correlation among students’ multiple intelligences, tolerance of ambiguity, and their English proficiency did exist. In addition, by using t-test, findings showed that genders made a difference in students’ multiple intelligences, tolerance of ambiguity, and English proficiency as well. Furthermore, implications derived from the study were provided for more effective English teaching and learning.
An Investigation of Taiwanese Nursing Students’ English Learning Behaviors and Environmental Factors Related to English Learning before and after Their Internship Experiences—A Case Study  [PDF]

Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2017.712102
The study aimed to investigate Taiwanese nursing students’ English learning behaviors and environmental factors relevant to English learning before and after their internships. More than five hundred nursing students from five junior colleges in southern Taiwan served as subjects of the study. The research instrument included a 134-item questionnaire dealing with students’ personal demographic information and English learning behaviors of motivation, strategy, and anxiety. In addition, environmental factors relevant to English learning of English as the Medium of Instruction (EMI) and Internationalization at Home (IaH), as well as nursing English for practicum use were discussed. Findings revealed that some correlations among students’ English learning behaviors, environmental factors, and English levels did exist before and after their internships. Moreover, students’ internship experiences of English use also brought about some changes in their learning behaviors led to English levels. Some implications and suggestions were provided for schools and students hoping to equip students with good English skills before getting into the job market.
Avoiding the Gap of College Students’ Internship Expectations and Perceptions—A Case Study in Taiwan  [PDF]

Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2018.88040
Abstract: Internship is believed to be vital in bridging the gap of theory and practice because of its providing students many realities they couldn’t find on campus. In fact, successful internships can play the role of “win-win-win” triangular partnership among schools, students, and industries, especially to benefit students to well equip themselves for good opportunities in the future career development. However, internship experiences that fail to meet students’ expectation may also discourage them or turn them away from entering the industry. Hence, to be aware of and to avoid the potential gap of students’ expectation cannot be underestimated. The study aimed to explore students’ expectation of internships from an aspect of gender and multiple intelligences expecting to avoid the potential gap beforehand. Subjects were eighty college Hospitality students who were ready to conduct their internships out of campus. They helped to fill out the questionnaires dealing with their personal demographic information, multiple intelligences, and expectations of internship. Findings revealed that genders and multiple intelligences did make a difference in students’ expectations of internship which may bring about frustration or disappointment in their real internship world. Suggestions and implications for the triangular partnership of schools, students, and industries were provided with a better understanding of factors relevant to students’ expectations for a more appropriate internship program to avoid the potential gap in advance.
A Study of the Role of Strategy in Foreign Language Learning  [PDF]

Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2018.85016
Abstract: The study aimed to investigate the role of strategy in foreign language learning, including students’ English learning behaviors, factors affecting students’ language learning strategy use, strategies that good and poor language learners used, and to compare with that of learners of FL, ESL, and EFL. Two hundred and twenty-four Taiwanese college students served as subjects of the study. The research design was a descriptive study and the research instrument was a questionnaire of motivation, belief, strategy, and anxiety. All available data were computed by using SPSS. Findings revealed that strategy use was the best predictor of successful language learning and motivational intensity played the most significant role in influencing strategy use. In addition, good language learners used more strategies and differences of strategy use existed among learners of FL, ESL, and EFL. It’s hoped to raise general awareness of language learning strategies and to bear in mind the individual difference of learners for effective teaching and learning.
Controlling Chaos in Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Control System via Fuzzy Guaranteed Cost Controller
Yi-You Hou
Abstract and Applied Analysis , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/650863
Abstract: This paper investigates the guaranteed cost control of chaos problem in permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) via Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy method approach. Based on Lyapunov stability theory and linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique, a state feedback controller is proposed to stabilize the PMSM systems. An illustrative example is provided to verify the validity of the results developed in this paper.

A Poincaré Lemma for Whitney-de Rham complex
Hou-Yi Chen
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: Let $M$ be a real analytic manifold, $Z$ a closed subanalytic subset of $M$. We show that the Whitney-de Rham complex over $Z$ is quasi-isomorphic to the constant sheaf $\mathbb{C}_{Z}$
Traveling Waves in a Three Species Competition-cooperation System
Xiaojie Hou,Yi Li
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: This paper studies the traveling wave solutions to a three species competition cooperation system. The existence of the traveling waves is investigated via monotone iteration method. The upper and lower solutions come from either the waves of KPP equation or those of certain Lotka Volterra system. We also derive the asymptotics and uniqueness of the wave solutions. The results are then applied to a Lotka Volterra system with spatially averaged and temporally delayed competition.
Reconstruction of a variety from $\mathscr{O}[[\hbar]]$-modules
Hou-Yi Chen
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: We prove that varieties are uniquely determined by the derived category of $\mathscr{O}[[\hbar]]$-modules with coherent cohomology which is the same as $\mathscr{O}$-modules proved by A. Bondal and D. Orlov. We also generalize a theorem of Orlov.
Revisit Multiple Intelligences with the Roles of Motivation, Strategy, and Anxiety in Foreign Language Learning—A Case Study in Taiwan  [PDF]

Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1104057
The study was conducted to revisit multiple intelligences with the roles of motivation, strategy, and anxiety in foreign language learning. Subjects were 260 Hospitality management major students in a private five-year junior college in north-eastern Taiwan, including 114 males and 146 females. They helped to fill out the 226-item questionnaires dealing with multiple intelligences [1] [2], motivation [3], strategy [4], and anxiety [5]. The results revealed that a correlation among multiple intelligences, motivation, strategy, and anxiety did exist, and led to different English levels. Discussions, implications, and suggestions for students, teachers, parents, and schools were provided.
