Developing Students’ Critical Thinking Skills by Task-Based Learning in Chemistry Experiment Teaching  [PDF]
Qing Zhou, Qiuyan Huang, Hong Tian
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.412A1006

Task-Based Learning (TBL) is a student-centered, teacher-guided and task-performed teaching approach. This study was aimed to investigate the effects of task-based learning (TBL) in chemistry experiment teaching on promoting high school students’ critical thinking skills in Xi’an, China. To achieve the aims, a pre-test and post-test experimental design with an experimental group and a control group was employed. Students in the experimental group were taught with TBL, while students in the control group were taught with lecturing teaching methods. Five chemical experiments were selected, and 119 students aged at 17 - 19 voluntarily participated in the research which lasted one semester. The California Critical Thinking Skills Test (CCTST) was used as a data collection tool. Results showed there was an obvious significant difference (p < 0.05) in the dimension of analyticity in the experimental group after TBL, while there were no significant differences in the total score, the evaluation and inference of CCTST. The findings provide an effective way for chemistry teachers to improve students’ critical thinking analyticity skills.

Study of Quantitative Model for Maslow’s View of Humanity Happiness  [PDF]
Yaoyao Wei, Tian Xie, Yuxiang Hong
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.44015
Abstract: Maslow’s view of Humanity Happiness argues that people feel happy when their needs are satisfied in a certain level. For exploring the quantitative evaluation methods of humanity happiness, firstly, based on the theories of Humanity Happiness and Fuzzy Sets, the concept “need-satisfied membership” is proposed to describe subjective feelings of individual happiness quantitatively. Secondly, a comprehensive happiness membership indicator system is constructed. Its indicator weights can be computed based on Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. And then the individual comprehensive happiness can be analyzed quantitatively. Furthermore, the general happiness membership function model as a more scientific measurement method is proposed for quantitatively analyzing the happiness of specific people in specific areas.
Performance Impact of Data Layout on the GPU-accelerated IDW Interpolation
Gang Mei,Hong Tian
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: This paper focuses on evaluating the performance impact of different data layouts on the GPU-accelerated IDW interpolation. First, we redesign and improve our previous GPU implementation that was performed by exploiting the feature CUDA Dynamic Parallel (CDP). And then, we implement three versions of GPU implementations, i.e., the naive version, the tiled version, and the improved CDP version, based on five layouts including the Structure of Arrays (SoA), the Array of Sturcutes (AoS), the Array of aligned Sturcutes (AoaS), the Structure of Arrays of aligned Structures (SoAoS), and the Hybrid layout. Experimental results show that: the layouts AoS and AoaS achieve better performance than the layout SoA for both the naive version and tiled version, while the layout SoA is the best choice for the improved CDP version. We also observe that: for the two combined data layouts (the SoAoS and the Hybrid), there are no notable performance gains when compared to other three basic layouts. We recommend that: in practical applications, the layout AoaS is the best choice since the tiled version is the fastest one among the three versions of GPU implementations, especially on single precision.

Hongya Gao, Shuangli Li, Yanjie Zhang, Hong Tian
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2013.17001

In the present paper, we answer the question: for 0< a <1 fixed, what are the greatest value p(a)

and the least value q(a) such that the double inequality Jp(a,b)< aA(a,b)+ (1-a)G(a,b)<Jq(a,b)

holds for all a,b>0 with a is not equal to b ?

Hybrid Designing of a Neural System by Combining Fuzzy Logical Framework and PSVM for Visual Haze-Free Task  [PDF]
Hong Hu, Liang Pang, Dongping Tian, Zhongzhi Shi
International Journal of Intelligence Science (IJIS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijis.2013.34016

Brain-like computer research and development have been growing rapidly in recent years. It is necessary to design large scale dynamical neural networks (more than 106 neurons) to simulate complex process of our brain. But such kind of task is not easy to achieve only based on the analysis of partial differential equations, especially for those complex neural models, e.g. Rose-Hindmarsh (RH) model. So in this paper, we develop a novel approach by combining fuzzy logical designing with Proximal Support Vector Machine Classifiers (PSVM) learning in the designing of large scale neural networks. Particularly, our approach can effectively simplify the designing process, which is crucial for both cognition science and neural science. At last, we conduct our approach on an artificial neural system with more than 108 neurons for haze-free task, and the experimental results show that texture features extracted by fuzzy logic can effectively increase the texture information entropy and improve the effect of haze-removing in some degree.

The Vertical and Horizontal Spatial-Temporal Conceptual Metaphor Representation of Chinese Temporal Words  [PDF]
Tian Hong, Xianyou He, Richard Tillman, Xueru Zhao, Yumei Deng
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2017.811111
Abstract: People rely on spatial-temporal metaphor when they talk and think about abstract temporal concept. The purpose of this study is to further investigate the mechanism of the multi-dimensional spatial-temporal conceptual metaphor in Chinese. Using the spatial cuing paradigm, we examined the cognitive impact of the Chinese vertical and horizontal spatial-temporal metaphor, and explored the dominant dimension between the two metaphors in context. The results showed that the processing of temporal concepts for Chinese speakers involved not only the horizontal spatial-temporal metaphor, but also the vertical spatial-temporal metaphor. The horizontal dimension was the dominant dimension of spatial-temporal metaphor in the processing of temporal concepts in Chinese. The findings demonstrated that representation of time depends on representation of space, supporting the Metaphorical Structuring View.
Reliability Evaluation Optimal Selection Model of Component-Based System  [PDF]
Guo Yong, Wan Tian Tian, Ma Pei Jun, Su Xiao Hong
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2011.47050
Abstract: If the components in a component-based software system come from different sources, the characteristics of the components may be different. Therefore, evaluating the reliability of a component-based system with a fixed model for all components will not be reasonable. To solve this problem, this paper combines a single reliability growth model with an architecture-based reliability model, and proposes an optimal selecting approach. First, the most appropriate model of each component is selected according to the historical reliability data of the component, so that the evaluation deviation is the smallest. Then, system reliability is evaluated according to both the relationships among components and the using frequency of each component. As the approach takes into account the historical data and the using frequency of each component, the evaluation and prediction results are more accurate than those of using a single model.
One Cycles on Rationally Connected Varieties
Zhiyu Tian,Hong R. Zong
Mathematics , 2012, DOI: 10.1112/S0010437X13007549
Abstract: All curves on a separably rationally connected variety are rationally equivalent to a (non-effective) integral sum of rational curves, hence the first Chow group is generated by rational curves. Applying the same techniques, we also proved that the first Chow group of all separably rationally connected Fano complete intersections with index at least 2 is generated by lines. As a consequence, a question of Professor Burt Totaro about integral Hodge classess on rationally connected 3-folds is solved, and positive answer to the question for general n-fold due to Professor J\'anos Koll\'ar will follow from the Tate conjecture for surfaces over finite fields.
