Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

This study aims to determine the mechanical properties of a concrete mixture using Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GBFS) and crab shell powder as a substitute for cement and fine aggregate in a concrete mixture. The mechanical properties to be studied are concrete compressive strength, slump value and its density. As a specimen in this study, a concrete cylinder with a diameter of 100 mm and a height of 200 mm was used. The compressive strength of concrete was tested at 7, 14, and 28 days. The amount of GGBF and crab shell powder used in the concrete mix varies from 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% of cement and fine aggregate weight. The results of the study showed that combination of 5% crab shell powder and adding 10% GGBFS powder, can increase the compressive strength of the concrete of 5.56%.
This paper reports on a study which explores the mathematics teaching strategies used in a multilingual classroom at technical and vocational education and training colleges in South Africa. Effective teaching and learning strategies are required that will motivate students to study and understand mathematical concepts, as well as engage in both procedural and conceptual discourses. Brijlall showed that in mathematics classes collaborative learning has a higher rate of success than does individual learning. He recommends further study on this teaching strategy. This study seeks to draw up some strategies which lecturers can use to teach mathematics effectively in a multilingual classroom. Effective strategies should lead to better understanding of mathematical concepts with subsequently improved performance in mathematics examinations. Hence, this study is important in addressing the call for greater research in this area.
