  • A multi-player educational game for story writing

    Mayo, Michael (Creativity and Cognition Studios Press, 2004)
    In this short paper, a multi-player interactive game called STORYWORLD BUILDER is described. The game enables children to collaboratively build a virtual “story world” and then role-play characters in that world. The ...
  • Multi-system geochronological and isotopic constraints on age and evolution of the Gaoligongshan metamorphic belt and shear zone system in western Yunnan, China

    Eroğlu, Sümeyya; Siebel, Wolfgang; Danišík, Martin; Pfänder, Jörg A.; Chen, Fukun (Elsevier, 2013)
    The Gaoligongshan metamorphic belt, located east of the Eastern Himalayan Syntaxis (EHS) in the Yunnan province, southwestern China, is a compelling region in which to determine temporal constrains on crustal dynamic ...
  • Multiclass alternating decision trees

    Holmes, Geoffrey; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Kirkby, Richard Brendon; Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark A. (Springer, Berlin, 2002)
    The alternating decision tree (ADTree) is a successful classification technique that combines decision trees with the predictive accuracy of boosting into a set of interpretable classification rules. The original formulation ...
  • Multiculturalism and women’s employment: A sociological perspective

    Foroutan, Yaghoob (Auckland University of Technology, 2011)
    This paper analyses the patterns and determinants of female labour force participation from a sociological perspective. Using a relatively recent database, the present analysis updates existing knowledge and evaluates prior ...
  • Multimodal ways of eliciting students' voice.

    Cowie, Bronwen; Otrel-Cass, Kathrin; Moreland, Judy (Faculty of Education, University of Waikato, 2010)
    For some time researchers have been exploring how students might best be supported to express their ideas, opinions and feelings and to demonstrate what they know and can do. In this paper, we discuss some of the implications ...
  • Multinomial naive Bayes for text categorization revisited

    Kibriya, Ashraf Masood; Frank, Eibe; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Holmes, Geoffrey (Springer, 2005)
    This paper presents empirical results for several versions of the multinomial naive Bayes classifier on four text categorization problems, and a way of improving it using locally weighted learning. More specifically, it ...
  • Multiple frequency range imaging to remove measurement ambiguity

    Payne, Andrew D.; Jongenelen, Adrian P.P.; Dorrington, Adrian A.; Cree, Michael J.; Carnegie, Dale A. (2009)
    Range imaging systems use a specialised sensor to capture an image where object distance (range) is measured for every pixel using time-of-flight. The scene is illuminated with an amplitude modulated light source, and the ...
  • Multiple intelligences: fashionable or foundational?

    Scapens, Mennie (Mary-Ann); Fraser, Deborah (NZCER Press, 2005)
    Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) has been well received by many educators. Most of the literature on MI, however, concentrates on the primary school sector. This article considers the implications of MI for ...
  • Multiple range imaging camera operation with minimal performance impact

    Whyte, Refael Z.; Payne, Andrew D.; Dorrington, Adrian A.; Cree, Michael J. (SPIE, 2010)
    Time-of-flight range imaging cameras operate by illuminating a scene with amplitude modulated light and measuring the phase shift of the modulation envelope between the emitted and reflected light. Object distance can then ...
  • Multiple reading: text and theory

    Moffat, Kirstine (New Zealand Association for the Teaching of English, 2009-10)
    It was with great pleasure that I accepted an invitation to run a workshop at the recent NZATE Conference. The topic of my session was an overview of the use of literary theory in the teaching of English and that same focus ...
  • Multiple return separation for a full-field ranger via continuous waveform modelling

    Godbaz, John Peter; Cree, Michael J.; Dorrington, Adrian A. (SPIE and IS&T, 2009)
    We present two novel Poisson noise Maximum Likelihood based methods for identifying the individual returns within mixed pixels for Amplitude Modulated Continuous Wave rangers. These methods use the convolutional relationship ...
  • The multiple roles of participative budgeting on job performance

    Chong, Vincent; Eggleton, Ian R.C.; Leong, Michele (JAI Press, 2006)
    This paper examines the multiple roles (i.e., cognitive, motivational and value attainment) of participative budgeting and the combined effects of these three roles on subordinates’ job performance. Specifically, this paper ...
  • Multiple senses of community among older Chinese migrants to New Zealand

    Li, Wendy Wen; Hodgetts, Darrin; Sonn, Christopher (Wiley, 2014)
    Existing literature suggests that successful ageing is linked to a sense of community (SOC) that is developed through shared daily practices. For migrant groups, SOC can extend across home and receiving countries. In order ...
  • Multiple small monthly doses of dicyandiamide (DCD) did not reduce denitrification in Waikato dairy pasture

    Watkins, Natalie Lisa; Schipper, Louis A.; Sparling, Graham P.; Thorrold, Bruce; Balks, Megan R. (Royal Society of New Zealand, 2013)
    The effectiveness of multiple small doses of the nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide (DCD) to decrease denitrification under warm moist conditions was tested in a 1-year field trial on a grazed dairy pasture. DCD was ...
  • Multiple viewpoint systems for music prediction

    Witten, Ian H.; Conklin, Darrell (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1993)
    This paper examines the prediction and generation of music using a multiple viewpoint system, a collection of independent views of the musical surface each of which models a specific type of musical phenomena. Both the ...
  • Multiply perfect numbers of low abundancy
