Statistical grouping of cassava mosaic disease-resistant varieties cultivated by the National Root Crops Research Institute, Umudike, Nigeria

    Similarity level of secondary data on proximate composition of fufu flour measured from 44 cassava mosaic diseases (CMD) resistant varieties was obtained in order to group the 44 cassava varieties. The distant coefficient generated between the 44 CMD resistant varieties ranged from 0.000 to 51.510. The distance measures with low coefficient are grouped together. The agglomerative hierarchical...

Solution of a class of singular two point boundary value problems by variational method

    In this study, He’s highly prolific variational iteration method (VIM) is applied effectively for showing the existence, uniqueness and solving a class of singular second order, two point boundary value problems. The process of finding solution involves generation of a sequence of appropriate and approximate iterative solution function equally likely to converge to an exact solution of the...

A model teaching for the cycloid curves by the use of dynamic software with multiple representations approach

    This study proposes the use of dynamic software that will enable students to explore a specific kind of parametric equation at the tertiary level. Firstly, it was aimed at visualizing the basic cycloid curve which is the trajectory of a point on the circle rolling along x-axis. Then, the mathematical meaning of the design process, which is mostly based on the syntax, was tried to be drawn out. It...
