Sead Resic, Amna Bajramovic, Anela Hrnjicic – GRADE AS THE MOTIVATIONAL FACTOR IN LEARNING MATHEMATICS
Full text

Abstract

In this research the motivation for learning mathematics was tested,as well as the effect of grades on the motivation of primary school level students. On a sample of N=100 participants, primary school students, we conducted a survey, the results of which show that the participants are more motivated with extrinsic factors, then intrinsic factors for learning mathematics. Grades are the main factor that has the most influence on the motivation level of students for learning mathematics, because students need good grades for their further education. The results also show that punishment and rewards from parents for bad and good grades has no effect on the motivation level of students.

Adisa Ahmic, Emir Halilovic, Brankica Milic – GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN TWO HUMAN POPULATIONS CONSIDERING ON SOME DYNAMIC AND STATIC MORPHOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
Full text

Abstract

In this paper, we report on the first data connected to the phenotype diversity of the Roma population from north/eastern Bosnia and its genetic relations with neighboring non-Roma populations. Genetic structure of the Roma and non-Roma population was analyzed considering on four the static-morphological and three the dynamic-morphological properties. A total of 847 samples have been collected from unrelated individuals in the area of the north/eastern Bosnia. The investigated parameters of genetic heterogeneity were estimated by: the recessive phenotypes frequency observed property, chi-squared test, exact-test, pairwise FST and genetic distance analysis. Estimation of genetic variability of the analyzed populations showed significant genetic differentiation between of the Roma and non-Roma population. The basic factors of the found significant genetic differentiation between the Roma and non-Roma population are a result of a high level of endogamy, the reproductive isolation of the Roma population and limited maternal gene flow with neighboring populations.

Amela Teskeredzic, Dzenana Radzo Alibegovic, Hurma Begic – HEALTH SELF-EVALUATION OF ELDERLY PERSONS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS IN RELATION TO GENDER AND STATE OF HEALTH
Full text

Abstract

Health self-evaluation, as a subjective measure, is related to person’s well-being because it encapsulates physical and emotional health evaluation. It has been concluded that subjective health is, for most of people, number one trait of quality of living that is connected to health. Individual is to decide which aspects of objective situation are important for their satisfaction in life. In other words, way in which a person will perceive and react to an objective situation depends on their personal traits. Aim of this research was to examine the differences in relation to gender and health state of visually impaired older persons of that live in institutional accommodation, by self-evaluation. Respondents sample was comprised of 40 visually impaired older persons, both genders (13 male and 27 female) that live in nursing home “Dom penzionera” in Tuzla. Research has been conducted by interview, using questionnaire “Quality of life of adult persons with motoric disabilities in territory of Vojvodina” (Susnjevic, 2015).

Gabriel Pinkas, Aid Bulic – PRINCIPAL’S LEADERSHIP STYLE, AS PERCEIVED BY TEACHERS, IN RELATION TO TEACHER’S EXPERIENCE FACTOR OF SCHOOL CLIMATE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
Full text

Abstract

The experience of the environment in which the activity is performed is a significant factor of the outcome of this activity, that is, the efficiency of the work and the degree of achieving the goal. Within the work environment, physical and social conditions can be observed. The first, which includes material and technical means, are mostly static, easily perceivable and measurable. Others, which include social relations, are much more susceptible to change, more difficult to perceive and measure, and their experience with different individuals within the same group can be more distinct. Although all members of the group participate in group dynamics and relationships, not all are equally relevant to these processes. Considering the position that carries the right and responsibility of setting up a vision and mission, setting goals, creating conditions for work, making decisions and providing feedback, the leader is in most cases crucial.

Hasan Mahmutovic, Alem Merdic – REAL CONVERGENCE OF BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA TOWARDS THE EUROPEAN UNION
Full text

Abstract

The entire process of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s path to European integration so far, is mostly limited to the problems of achieving political consensus, neglecting the essence and purpose of the integration process, which is primarily reflected in achieving the real convergence of Bosnia and Herzegovina towards the EU. The absence of real convergence, and adequate preparation in terms of competitiveness of the economy of Bosnia and Herzegovina for the EU membership, can cause negative effects of integration.Considering that there has not yet been written any paper that questions the lack of real convergence, primarily GDP p.c., and that a complete analysis of economic criteria is reduced to the Progress Reports of Bosnia and Herzegovina towards the EU, which summarize the fulfillment of the economic criteria of Bosnia and Herzegovina for the EU membership without concrete suggestions for improvement, this paper analyzes the real convergence of Bosnia and Herzegovina towards the European Union, observed through the income level p.c., prices and productivity of the labor force.

Abstract

This paper presents the production plan optimization in the metal industry considered as a multi-criteria programming
problem. We first provided the definition of the multi-criteria programming problem and classification of the multi-
criteria programming methods. Then we applied two multi-criteria programming methods (the STEM method and the
PROMETHEE method) in solving a problem of multi-criteria optimization production plan in a company from the metal
industry. The obtained results indicate a high efficiency of the applied methods in solving the problem.

Dzevad Mahmutovic, Berina Huskanovic – A LOOK INSIDE COOPERATION BETWEEN PROSECUTORS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT DURING CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION
Full text

Abstract

The paper deals with crime scene investigation as a measure of inquiry, conceptually and substantially, subjects of
investigation, as well as their mutual relations. The analysis of the existing legal framework suggests that the current
Criminal Procedure Code of Bosnia and Herzegovina offers the appropriate basis for the cooperation between prosecutors
and law enforcement. However, previous practice indicates certain shortcomings in the cooperation and coordination
between prosecutors and law enforcement. With this paper, the authors wanted to examine the opinions of direct
actors on this matter. The results show that they are satisfied with the legal regulation of their mutual relations during
investigations, and they express positive opinions in terms of their cooperation. Of course, the possibility of improving
that cooperation is also noted, and the methods of achieving it should be identified in further research.2

Full text

Abstract

Aim of this paper was to examine effectiveness and efficiency of examination of hearing status of persons with hearing
impairment in form of applicable diagnostic software, in relation to classical approach. Sample was comprised of 90
respondents and was formed out of two subsamples. First subsample was comprised of 45 students with hearing impairment
with a degree of impairment of over 80 dB, both genders, age from 6 to 15 years and without any other disabilities.
Second subsample was comprised of 45 students (absolvents) from department of audiology. For data gathering,
audiogram, applicable diagnostic software and scale for evaluation of attention and cooperation were used. Data was
processed with descriptive analysis, McNemar and Wilcoxon tests. Results of the research confirmed that applicable
diagnostic software provide more effective and more efficient diagnostic procedures for examining hearing status of
persons with hearing impairment in relation to classical approach.

Abstract

This paper presents the research of attitudes of deaf people and educational workers in order to determine and isolate
factors that influence the efficiency of professional information process and the professional orientation of deaf people.
The first subsample consisted of deaf participants who have completed the process of professional orientation and rehabilitation,
and the other subsample of educational workers, who work at professional training of deaf people. Factor
analysis was used to evaluate the results. Based on the results of the research, three essential factors were isolated,
which indicate that there are gaps in the implementation of professional orientation of deaf population, which also
points to the strategy of action in order to improve its effectiveness

Irena Arsic – SELF-FASHIONING IN RENAISSANCE DUBROVNIK: MARIN DRZIC VIDRA (1508-1567)
Full text

Abstract

Modern interpretation methods of the most important works of European Renaissance provide new opportunities
in the interpretation of comedies of Dubrovnik writer Marin Držić. This especially applies to the theory of
the new historicism, whose most important representative Stephen Greenblatt in his classic work Renaissance
self-fashioning, provides an opportunity to examine Držić and his work according to this theory that deals
withthe identity of the Renaissance creators, which was also the goal of this work. In this way new and more
detailed analysis of Držić pastoral, farce and Plautuscomedy was opened, which will prove againthe classical
quality and timeless value of the dramatic work of the greatest renaissance writer in our region.

Sead Resic, Maid Omerovic, Tarik Bazdalic, Amila Osmic – POSSIBLE CALCULATOR ADDICTION IN STUDENTS WHILE PERFORMING SIMPLE CALCULUS OPERATIONS IN SOLVING MATHEMATICS PROBLEMS
Full text

Abstract

Contemporary learning processes in schools and universities could not be imagined without the use of computers and calculators. Naturally, all is good if they are used in order to acquire new knowledge or solve problems from expert subjects in technical schools, which demand large quantity of simple mathematical operations. However, what if frequent use of calculators, either pocket or those installed on every home and school computer, becomes an addiction in students who begin using them while calculating simple mathematical operations, such as multiplying or adding and detracting one-digit numbers or numbers smaller than 20, when they should know this by heart? We arrived at this hypothesis during knowledge tests for students after regular demonstrations and elaborations of Mathematics subject matter. In order to confirm or deny this hypothesis, generic/developmental method, that is, survey was used as one of research techniques (Selimović, 2013., p. 104).

Alem Merdic, Hasan Mahmutovic – SOME THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF ECONOMIC INTEGRATION
Full text

Abstract

One of the basic links of the process of globalization are economic integrations. The aim of this paper is to systematize theoretical achievements and to review the forms, effects and conditions for connecting countries motivated by economic benefits. In addition to the theoretical review of the conceptual definition of economic integration, the focus is on the levels of economic integration from the free-trade zone to the monetary and fiscal union, explaining the specificity of each of the mentioned levels. Considering that the connection between countries always raises the question of the benefits and costs of connection, the special emphasis in this paper is placed on the potential effects for free trade. Finally, the greatest contribution of this paper is the systematization and theoretical review of the theory of optimal currency area and monetary integration, which is especially significant for the European soil, taking into account the already established European Monetary Union.

Boris Kresic, Ervina Halilovic – PROPERTY RELATIONS OF MARITAL PARTNERS THROUGH THE HISTORY OF BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
Full text

Abstract

The institutes of contemporary family law are rooted in Roman law, including the property relations of marital partners.
From the historical perspective, the property-legal relations of marital partners in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) were
subject to religious regulations and the rules of the General Civil Code and Family Law of the Socialist Republic of
Bosnia and Herzegovina. The article analyzes the solutions applied during the Roman, the Ottoman, and the AustroHungarian
rule as well as the solutions included in the currently valid Basic Law on Marriage and Family Laws in
BiH. The authors focus on the development of family law in terms of property relations of marital partners and provide
historical-legal overview of the development of family law from the absolute power of pater familias to the full equality
of marital partners.

Desa Ilic, Sead Resic – METHODS OF COOPERATIVE LEARNING AND THEIR APPLICATION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPETITIVE THEMES IN TEACHING MATHEMATICS
Full text

Abstract

Contemporary changes in the whole system of education and training require the teacher to be a person of trust, educator,
counselor, friend, organizer, coordinator, associate, innovator, assessor, mentor; in another words, a contemporary
and modern person. In the modern school (even more in the future) the role of the teacher is far wider. He needs to be
active in school, outside of school, within free activities, as well as cultural and public activities of the school. A good
teacher does not resist the influence of a student, because his or her extremely responsible role can be successfully
achieved, if they work well with them. To cooperate in this context does not mean that only the teacher listens to the
student’s suggestions, although that is also very important, but cooperating means accepting the student’s proposal, if
they are objectively acceptable or explain why a particular proposal cannot be realized. It is not possible to work well
and democratically in the classroom if the student’s influence is not accepted. If the teacher’s behavior and style of work
are not necessarily limited to the work and behavior of a student, then there is no interaction, and the teaching process
must be an interaction.
