Effects of S/U Policy on Students’ Behavior

Effects of S/U Policy on Students' Behavior

Description

This notebook presented the details of exploring the effect of S/U policy on students’ behaviours, especially in module selection, through a series of rigorous statistical tests and data visualizations, using past module enrolment and student programs’ data. It showed that modules with certain characteristics were significantly more selected, and students tend to S/U more of their home faculty modules. More exciting results are revealed in the notebook!

This geNiUSbook serves as a summary, as well as a platform for reflection, for the module which we had just completed in the past semester, AY20/21, Semester 2. This DYOM, curated by us, students, was aimed at equipping ourselves with relevant skills for outdoor events as well as having the opportunity to appreciate nature and learning about Singapore’s natural heritage.

貧困家庭の食料不安と解決策のイノベーション The Issue of Food Insecurity for Needy Families and Innovative Solutions

貧困家庭の食料不安と解決策のイノベーション The Issue of Food Insecurity for Needy Families and Innovative Solutions

Description

This geNiUSbook is targeted at Japanese 5 and Japanese 6 students. The format of this geNiUSbook is inspired by the preparation work, assigned by our professors, prior to each Japanese Language class that we had attended. The main educational content in the geNiUSbook includes a video and a reading passage. Short quizzes are used to test the users’ understanding of the educational content. Interactive components like PollEv and Padlet are incorporated so that users can share their opinions and knowledge. Our team believes that the use of geNiUSbook for pre-class preparation work is more organised than what we had gone through – flipping through thick textbooks and receiving multiple emails regarding study materials.

Useful Linux Terminal Commands for Large Data Processing

Useful Linux Terminal Commands for Large Data Processing

Description

In this Sway, I explore useful Linux terminal commands that aid in processing large data files. I will show some basic information about the usefulness of terminal commands and a short tutorial using videos (currently from my local computer, but will be uploaded to youtube). Then, I will give a short example of how to utilize the useful commands by making a simple bash script to process files. The Sway will be useful for those working in Linux environments and wrangling with a lot of data.

The Fate of Food

The Fate of Food

Let’s taco-bout food! All living things need food to survive as food provides us with energy.

Food contains macronutrients such as carbohydrates (aka sugars), proteins and fats. What happens to food after it has been consumed? Does it turn directly into poo?

We hope you have an egg-cellent time learning about the human digestive system and food nutrition here!

In this interactive book, you will:

1) Understand the physical and chemical processes of digestion (look out for step-by-step simulation videos!)

2) Learn about the various food tests — namely the iodine test, Benedict’s test, Biuret test and emulsion test.

Let’s discover the fate of food today!

Earthquakes (Ground-Breaking Waves)

Earthquakes (Ground-Breaking Waves)

Description

Earthquakes are devastating natural disasters that destroy lives. Singapore is fortunate to have never experience one before, but that doesn’t mean we are free from its ripple effects. 

Being a rarely discussed topic here in Singapore, we hope to bring awareness about earthquake in this geNiUSbook. As readers read the book, they will see first hand accounts from earthquake survivors, understand the science behind the devastation and how human ingenuity can save lives through simple videos. At the end, we hope readers will not only learn more about earthquakes, but also appreciate the beauty and strength of human camaraderie in the face of disaster.
