Structure Equation Modeling Basic Assumptions and Concepts: A Novices Guide (Published)

The modern tools and techniques of research make the decision making easy. The present study focused on structure equation modeling (SEM) technique of research. SEM is one of widely recognized technique in research. This paper outlined basic working of SEM its modeling criteria, assumptions and concepts. A brief idea about second generation structure equation modeling was described in the paper. This study will allow the readers to develop understanding of SEM and its applications in different fields.

Identification of the Mathematics Concepts That Are Relevant in the Study of Chemistry at the Secondary School Level in Nigeria (Published)

This study focused on identification of mathematics concepts that are relevant in chemistry education at the secondary school level. The study is a descriptive research design and the area of the study was Abakaliki education zone of Ebonyi State, Nigeria. The sample comprised of 73 teachers (38 mathematics teachers and 35 chemistry teachers). Questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection. The questionnaire was made up of two sections for mathematics and chemistry teachers. Data collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation. Based on the findings from the data analysis, recommendations were made and it includes; the chemistry teachers should be exposed to programmes that would enable them to acquire more knowledge on mathematical aspects of chemistry. Training programmes should be organized which will bring the chemistry and mathematics teachers together to share their views on certain concepts in mathematics among others.

An Analysis of the Conceptual Issues Affecting Land Ownership/Inheritance Among The People of Ogbe Autonomous Community in Ahiazu Mbaise of Imo State. (Published)

The concept of land ownership and inheritance especially among the people of south eastern Nigeria (igboland), right before the colonial period, has always been that of absolute ownership which bestows the holder with the power of alienation. Alienation connotes the totality of the right of disposal over a thing which is not only the most conclusive but also, the most valuable incidence of ownership. This is what gave land inheritance its value. However, over time, there has been a drift in the popular perception of land tenure, ownership/inheritance by the people as a result of the changing economic importance of land. Against this background, this study analyses the conceptual issues affecting land ownership and inheritance among the people of Ogbe community in Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State, South-Eastern Nigeria, as it were during the historical / traditional era down to the contemporary times. The study used the anthropological methods, namely key interview, observations, and archival records in collecting its data. Analysis from the study reveals that most aspects of the land laws of the people including land pledging, communal ownership, land sales, inheritance procedure and gift land among others were gradually changing while some have become extinct due to the emerging social, economic and political restructuring of the nation in general and Ogbe in particular.
