  • Abstract This study aims at exploring the problem of classroom management—as a facet of teacher leadership—facing newly appointed teachers in Palestine’s public schools. Its main purpose is to determine the relationship of attitudes and behaviors, as well as other study variables such as gender and academic qualification, to classroom management for newly appointed teachers. To achieve this, the researcher used a 14-item questionnaire distributed among a sample of 30 male and female teachers randomly selected from a cohort of 150 of newly appointed teachers in the West Bank governorate of Qabatia. The study was conducted during the first semester of the scholastic year 2014 – 2015. In collecting and analyzing the data necessary for the study, the researcher used different statistical procedures such as means, frequencies, and independent t-test. The findings indicate a low competency level of 53.7% in classroom management skills among newly appointed teachers. In the light of this find

  • Numerical Methods for Solving Fuzzy Fredholm Integral Equation of the Second Kind
  • Published at:International Journal of Applied Mathematics, Vol.28, No.3, 2015,177-195
  • In this article some numerical methods, namely: the Taylor expansion method and the Trapezoidal method have been implemented to solve a fuzzy Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. Consequently, we convert a linear fuzzy Fredholm integral equation of the second kind into a linear system of integral equations of the second kind in crisp case. To demonstrate the credibility of these numerical schemes we consider a numerical test examlple. The numerical results show to be in a close agreement with the exact solution.

  • Potential of Biomass as an Alternative Fuel in Palestine- Amounts and methods of conversion
  • Published at:Fifth international Energy Conference, Ramallah, Palestine, 2015
  • these days, there is much talk about the alternative fuel and clean-burning as an alternative for petrol. Palestine is known to be very poor country in terms of fossil fuel resources. At the same time, energy alternatives are not defined well specially the non-conventional types such as biomass. Biomass can be defined as material which is recently derived from animals, and plants that use sunlight to grow.
    In this research, all types and amount of biomass that exist in Palestine that can be used as an alternative fuel for petrol was analyzed  and defined by a comprehensive field survey. The sources of clean and alternative energy which depend on the biomass using traditional and new technologies were discussed.
    This research aims to investigate the biomass and new process to find out a durable and a reliable alternative energy source for Palestinians.

  • Synthesis of Naproxen pro-drugs for enhanced transdermal absorption
  • Published at:Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research, 2014, 6(8):1-4
  • Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Naproxen have been used for a long time for the
    treatment of acute and chronic inflammation conditions. However, the oral administration of NSAIDs for a long
    time can cause gastric mucosal damage, which may result in ulceration and bleeding. Therefore, the development of
    a transdermal drug delivery (TDD) system of NSAIDs is of a great interest as it decreases GIT side effect and
    provides a constant release of drug in a determined period of time.
