In addition, the conceptually proclaimed technology of designing innovative pedagogical systems acts, in relation to the research strategy, as the tactics of the researching subject. If we take into account that the research is carried out on an interdisciplinary basis, then the design strategy produced on the basis of an interdisciplinary synthesis, at each of its stages, is expected (guaranteed) to lead to new interdisciplinary achievements – theoretical constructs (knowledge), models, algorithms, technologies, etc.: they serve as a reliable gnostic tool in further research carried out outside a specific disciplinary context. In other words, the results of interdisciplinary synthesis turn into a transdisciplinary strategic research tool, which we tried to demonstrate in this article.</p> Viktoriia V.

The research question posed in this paper is how players (primarily children) learn in complex strategic situations that they have never encountered before. We examine data from various games played during popular game theory lectures and present findings about players' strategic learning progress while competing with other players. Four "pick a number" games with similar-looking rules but very different properties were investigated. These games were presented to various groups of listeners. The collected data is available for replication and analysis in an open repository. In this paper, we analyze data and propose an agent-based model of a beauty pageant game to explain observed behavior. Finally, we discuss the findings, hypotheses to test, and open questions for future research.</p> Oleksii P. Ignatenko Copyright (c) 2022 Oleksii P.

The red and black color of nodes make up the principal component for balancing a RB tree. A balanced tree has an equal number of black nodes on any simple path. But when a black leaf node is deleted, a double-black (DB) node is formed, thus, causing a reduction in black heights and the tree becomes unbalanced. Rebalancing a RB tree with a DB node is a fairly complex process. Teaching and learning the removal of DB nodes is also challenging. This paper introduces a simplified novel method which is a symbolic-algebraic arithmetic procedure for the removal of DB nodes and the rebalancing of black heights in RB trees. This simplified approach has enhanced student learning of the DB node removal in RB trees. Feedback from students showed the learnability, workability and acceptance of the symbolic-algebraic method in balancing RB trees after a delete operation.</p> Kennedy E.

The scope of perspective to provide such structuring is scientific studies because, in most cases, they provide predicted measurement parameters, and it’s easy to structure. As a result, the parameters that will be measured can be defined and forms prepared for completion during studies. As a result, the parameters that will be measured can be defined and forms prepared for completion during shipping. This study corroborates how to handle this data in ontologies, providing structuring and interoperability of data. The case of the use of such an approach based on the expedition of real-life environmental study during Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine expedition is described. The approach uses Excel-based templates to be filled during the measurement of parameters. Each line in such an array represents the location or name of the search subject. An extra column is dedicated to geolocation insertion. After providing the research, such files are uploaded into the Polyhedron system, and ontology is generated. These ontologies are stored and integrated into ArcGis and can be used to present their own findings and provide basic searches by other researchers. The process of integrating a few ontologies that used a proposed template from different expeditions is described. Additional, as such studies are also used IMRAD, it is possible to use the approach of using IMRAD as the core of the expedition result’s graph and use the expedition studies in the same structure as other.</p> Yevhenii B.
