Enjoyment of Mathematics Excerpt :

What is so special about the number 30? How many colors are needed to color a map? Do the prime numbers go on forever? Are there more whole numbers than even numbers? These and other mathematical puzzles are explored in this delightful book by two eminent mathematicians. Requiring no more background than plane geometry and elementary algebra, this book leads the reader into some of the most fundamental ideas of mathematics, the ideas that make the subject exciting and interesting. Explaining clearly how each problem has arisen and, in some cases, resolved, Hans Rademacher and Otto Toeplitz's deep curiosity for the subject and their outstanding pedagogical talents shine through. Originally published in 1957. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Challenge And Thrill Of Pre-College Mathematics Is An Unusual Enrichment Text For Mathematics Of Classes 9, 10, 11 And 12 For Use By Students And Teachers Who Are Not Content With The Average Level That Routine Text Dare Not Transcend In View Of Their Mass Clientele. It Covers Geometry, Algebra And Trigonometry Plus A Little Of Combinatorics. Number Theory And Probability. It Is Written Specifically For The Top Half Whose Ambition Is To Excel And Rise To The Peak Without Finding The Journey A Forced Uphill Task.The Undercurrent Of The Book Is To Motivate The Student To Enjoy The Pleasures Of A Mathematical Pursuit And Of Problem Solving. More Than 300 Worked Out Problems (Several Of Them From National And International Olympiads) Share With The Student The Strategy, The Excitement, Motivation, Modeling, Manipulation, Abstraction, Notation And Ingenuity That Together Make Mathematics. This Would Be The Starting Point For The Student, Of A Life-Long Friendship With A Sound Mathematical Way Of Thinking.There Are Two Reasons Why The Book Should Be In The Hands Of Every School Or College Student, (Whether He Belongs To A Mathematics Stream Or Not) One, If He Likes Mathematics And, Two, If He Does Not Like Mathematics- The Former, So That The Cramped Robot-Type Treatment In The Classroom Does Not Make Him Into The Latter; And The Latter So That By The Time He Is Halfway Through The Book, He Will Invite Himself Into The Former.

Euclid s Window Excerpt :

Through Euclid's Window Leonard Mlodinow brilliantly and delightfully leads us on a journey through five revolutions in geometry, from the Greek concept of parallel lines to the latest notions of hyperspace. Here is an altogether new, refreshing, alternative history of math revealing how simple questions anyone might ask about space -- in the living room or in some other galaxy -- have been the hidden engine of the highest achievements in science and technology. Based on Mlodinow's extensive historical research; his studies alongside colleagues such as Richard Feynman and Kip Thorne; and interviews with leading physicists and mathematicians such as Murray Gell-Mann, Edward Witten, and Brian Greene, Euclid's Window is an extraordinary blend of rigorous, authoritative investigation and accessible, good-humored storytelling that makes a stunningly original argument asserting the primacy of geometry. For those who have looked through Euclid's Window, no space, no thing, and no time will ever be quite the same.

How People Learn Excerpt :

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

Precalculus with Modeling Visualization Excerpt :

Normal 0 false false false By connecting applications, modeling, and visualization, Gary Rockswold motivates students to learn mathematics in the context of their experiences. In order to both learn and retain the material, students must see a connection between the concepts and their real lives. In this new edition, connections are taken to a new level with “See the Concept” features, where students make important connections through detailed visualizations that deepen understanding. Rockswold is also known for presenting the concept of a function as a unifying theme, with an emphasis on the rule of four (verbal, graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations). A flexible approach allows instructors to strike their own balance of skills, rule of four, applications, modeling, and technology.
