Georgia Troullinou, Haridimos Kondylakis, Matteo Lissandrini, Davide Mottin
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Motivated by a lack of understanding of the impact of view materialization alternatives for RDF data, we demonstrate SOFOS, a system that implements and compares several cost models for view materialization  ...  Analytical queries over RDF data are becoming prominent as a result of the proliferation of knowledge graphs.  ...  DEMONSTRATION SCENARIO The goal for the demonstration is to show, through experiments, the challenges involved in materialized view selection on knowledge graphs, exploring various alternative cost models  ...

TRIGONOMETRIC CONCEPTS: PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS' PERCEPTIONS AND KNOWLEDGE

Michael J. Nabie, Peter Akayuure, Ussif A. Ibrahim-Bariham, Seidu Sofo
2018 Journal on Mathematics Education  
Convenience sampling technique was used to select a sample of 119 (25 females, 94 males) second year science/mathematics pre-service teachers from two Colleges of Education in the Northern Region of Ghana  ...  Trigonometry Perception Questionnaire (TPQ) and Trigonometry Assessment Test (TAT) were used to collect data on pre-service teachers' perceptions and conceptual knowledge of trigonometry.  ...  This suggests that the preservice teachers in the present study had action knowledge on the graph of trigonometric functions but lacked a process, object and schema knowledge on the graph of the sine function  ...
