Mistaken_goals.html. About wordmap Adapted from the book "Maintaining Sanity in the Classroom, illustrated teaching techniques" by Rudolf Dreikurs, et. al. (1982).


All children exhibit goal-seeking behaviors. Dreikurs, a child psychiatrist and educator, observed four principal mistaken goals, listed in the chart below in order of increasing difficulty of treatment. He also found that when attention seeking behaviors fail, the child will next seek power. If this is thwarted, then the child seeks revenge, and finally when this fails, the child avoids contact, having become completely discouraged. Similarly, adults have the same mistaken goals. If you are sensitive to your own feeling states, the following chart will help you identify the four mistaken goals of children, and provide a few useful corrective measures.

The 13 Most Important Numbers in the Universe - James D. Stein's Cosmic Numbers. In the 17th century, scientists understood three phases of matter—solids, liquids and gases (the discovery of plasma, the fourth phase of matter, lay centuries in the future).

The 13 Most Important Numbers in the Universe - James D. Stein's Cosmic Numbers

Back then, solids and liquids were much harder to work with than gases because changes in solids and liquids were difficult to measure with the equipment of the time. So many experimentalists played around with gases to try to deduce fundamental physical laws. Making the Modern World - Modelling. Any gymnast is familiar with the apparatus known as the beam.

Making the Modern World - Modelling

It is a straight, rigid, horizontal girder, supported solely at its two ends. It is able to withstand the various stresses placed upon it by the gymnast’s manoeuvres without bending or otherwise deforming. © TopFoto A rail bridge is also an example of a beam, carrying the massive loads of modern locomotives without visible deformation. In prehistoric times, the progenitor of this type of bridge was probably a log or plank thrown across a stream, across which groups of hominids would pass. Analytically, however, the interesting characteristics of any beam bridge are the forces acting on it, and its ability to sustain those forces and transfer them to the banks. This process is that of mathematical modelling, and the result of modelling a beam bridge would be a diagram such as the one below.

El profesor Ernest Lluch insistía en sus magistrales clases de historia del pensamiento económico, que más de la mitad de la resolución correcta de un problema consistía en formular la cuestión a resolver con rigor metodológico y datos ciertos.

La reforma de la Universidad: preguntas erróneas, respuestas incorrectas

Tras escuchar al señor Wert, nuestro ministro de Educación Cultura y Deporte, en la rueda prensa posterior al Consejo de Ministros del pasado viernes 13 de abril, nos ha surgido una seria preocupación respecto a cuál es la naturaleza del examen al que se somete a la comisión de expertos creada para hacer propuestas sobre la gobernanza, el proceso de selección y acreditación del profesorado y los estudiantes, y la economía y las finanzas de las universidades. El señor ministro Wert no ha dejado de preguntarse desde su toma de posesión por qué no hay ninguna universidad española entre las 100 primeras de los rankings internacionales.
