  • Precision crystal frequency reference disciplined using mains power

    Dirks, Sam; Scott, Jonathan B. (2016)
    We describe a clock that keeps time and provides a reference frequency with better than 1PPM accuracy, through a quartz crystal automatically calibrated via the power line frequency. The long-term precision of line-frequency-based ...
  • Precision horticulture - Helping make better orchard management decisions

    Hull, Graeme George; Brabyn, Lars; Clearwater, Michael J.; Adkins, Matt (2016)

  • Precision teaching and fluency: the effects of charting and goal-setting on skaters’ performance

    Pocock, Trudy Louise; Foster, T. Mary; McEwan, James S.A. (Joseph Cautilli and BAO Journals, 2010)
    This research involved three successive studies where precision teaching methods were used to increase roller skaters performance rates of basic skating skills. The first study compared precision teaching methods both with ...
  • Precision Teaching: Fast Practice or Merely More Practice Results in Better Learning?

    Kong, Xiuyan (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    Doughty, Chase and O'Shields (2004) reviewed the Precision Teaching literature which they point out claimed that Precision Teaching is superior in producing learning outcomes and they posed concerns about the lack of well ...
  • Precursory eruptions, magma priming and eruption dynamics associated with the climactic 19th February 1975 eruption of Ngauruhoe

    Geraghty, Krystal Joan (The University of Waikato, 2019)
    Ngauruhoe is an active central North Island composite volcano, located at the south end of the Taupo Volcanic Zone. This basaltic andesite to andesite cone is one of the most active vents of the larger Tongariro Volcanic ...
