Subjective Factors in Natural Science Education
European Journal of Social and Human Sciences, 2014, Vol.(1), № 1, pp. 11-18.
Managing the learning process in a modern school should be based on scientific facts that show large differences in the abilities of students. For students in upper primary school, differences in certain aspects of their mental development are up to eight years of schooling. Uneven development leads to their uneven progress in education. Due to the fact, a class even approximately does not represent an equal level of knowledge, but includes the various levels of individual students. In order to insure favorable conditions for learning to all students of class, teaching adapted to the capabilities of an average student has to be completed by the procedures of individualization. Therefore, modern education can not be imagined without the procedures of individualization, because only in such conditions of education, there are opportunities for the full development of each student.

European Journal of Social and Human Sciences, 2014, Vol.(1), № 1, pp. 19-27.
This contribution deals with cumulative training effect in two periods of an annual training cycle: 1st period - the summer preparatory period and II. summer racing period, 2nd period: the winter preparatory and indoor competition period in 16-17 years old female competitors in the long jump. We monitored the changes in the level of reactive strenght of the lower limbs using a test of 10 repetitive plyometric jumps on the jump ergometer Myotest PRO. The test was performed at the beginning of each monitored weekly microcycle. We monitored the following parameters: height of the jump, duration of the contact, reactivity and stiffness. The performance of the athletes in monitored parameters had a fluctuating course during the monitored periods. The results have confirmed the correctness of composition of the training. Therefore, the long cumulative training effect positively reflected in an increase of the performance at the schedule time, at the end of monitored period in the indicators of reactive strenght. The research has demonstrated the need for ongoing diagnostics of key indicators when manipulating with a training load.
