Early childhood education has risen to the top of the national policy
agenda with recognition that ensuring educational success and attainment
must begin in the earliest years of schooling. There is now a substantial
body of research to guide efforts to support young children’s learning.
Over the past 15 years, great strides have been made in supporting young
children’s literacy. This report summarizes the now substantial literature on
learning and teaching mathematics for young children in hopes of catalyzing
a similar effort in mathematics....
Learning mathematics in the middle
grades is a critical component in the
education of our nation’s youth. The
mathematics foundation laid during
these years provides students with the
skills and knowledge to study higher
level mathematics during high school,
provides the necessary mathematical
base for success in other disciplines such
as science, and lays the groundwork for
mathematically literate citizens. A
variety of evidence suggests that the
mathematics education landscape is
shifting and evolving rapidly....
Mathematics is the science study of the number, structure, and spatial transformations. In other words, it is assumed that subjects' shape and number. "According to the official view, it is the study of the abstract structure defined from the axioms, using Logic (logic) and mathematical symbols. The other point of it is described in mathematical philosophy. Due to their wide applications in many science, mathematics is known as the "universal language". Experts in the field of mathematics known as mathematicians....
Number puzzles, spatial/visual puzzles, cryptograms, Sudoku, Kokuro, logic puzzles, and word games like Frame Games are all a great way to teach math and problem-solving skills to elementary and middle school students. In these two new collections, puzzle master Terry Stickels provides puzzles and brain games that range from simple to challenging and are organized by grade level and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) content areas. Each book offers over 300 brain games that will help students learn core math concepts and develop critical thinking skills.
Game theory is a mathematical system for analyzing and predicting how humans behave
in strategic situations. Standard equilibrium analyses assume all players: 1) form beliefs
based on analysis of what others might do (strategic thinking); 2) choose a best response
given those beliefs (optimization); 3) adjust best responses and beliefs until they are
mutually consistent (equilibrium).
This is an intermediate level post-calculus text on mathematical and statistical
methods, directed toward the needs of chemists. It has developed out of a
course that I teach at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for thirdyear
undergraduate chemistry majors and, with additional assignments, for
chemistry graduate students.
Here are my online notes for my differential equations course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes” they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn how to solve differential equations or needing a refresher on differential equations. I’ve tried to make these notes as self contained as possible and so all the information needed to read through them is either from a Calculus or Algebra class or contained in other sections of the notes.
The purpose of this book is to bring together readings which explore the culture of
learning in a mathematics classroom. These readings show how knowledge of this
culture assists teachers and learners to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics
and to address concerns of social justice and the need for equity.
Mathematics in Action: Algebraic, Graphical, and Trigonometric Problem Solving, Fourth
Edition, is intended to help college mathematics students gain mathematical literacy in the
real world and simultaneously help them build a solid foundation for future study in mathematics
and other disciplines.
Our team of fourteen faculty, primarily from the State University of New York and the City
University of New York systems, used the AMATYC Crossroads standards to develop this threebook
series to serve a very large population of college students at the pre-precalculus level.
Rediscovering Mathematics is an eclectic collection
of mathematical topics and puzzles aimed at
talented youngsters and inquisitive adults who
want to expand their view of mathematics. By
focusing on problem solving, and discouraging
rote memorization, the book shows how to learn
and teach mathematics through investigation,
experimentation, and discovery. Rediscovering
Mathematics is also an excellent text for training
math teachers at all levels
The curriculum vitae of Alice Turner Schafer lists two specializations: abstract
algebra (group theory) and women in mathematics. As early as her high school
years Alice exhibited a love for mathematics and an interest in teaching as a
career. As a mathematics educator she championed the full participation of
women in mathematics.
(BQ) Ebook Project Origami activities for exploring mathematics presents a flexible, discovery-based approach to learning origami-math topics. It helps readers see how origami intersects a variety of mathematical topics, from the more obvious realm of geometry to the fields of algebra, number theory, and combinatorics. With over 100 new pages, this updated and expanded edition now includes 30 activities and offers better solutions and teaching tips for all activities.
The term reform-oriented teaching describes a collection of instructional practices that are designed to engage students as active participants in their own learning and to enhance the development of complex cognitive skills and processes. This monograph presents the findings of a multiyear National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded
This book will teach you how to bring together what you know
of finance, accounting, and the spreadsheet to give you a new
skill—building financial models. The ability to create and unde
stand models is one of the most valued skills in business an
finance today. It’s an expertise that will stand you in good stea
in any arena—Wall Street or Main Street—where numbers ar
important. Whether you are a veteran, just starting out on you
career, or still in school, having this expertise can give you
competitive advantage in what you want to do....
This book is a survey of abstract algebra with emphasis on algebra tinh.Do is online
for students in mathematics, computer science, and physical sciences.
The rst three or four chapters can stand alone as a one semester course in abstract
algebra. However, they are structured to provide the foundation for the program
linear algebra. Chapter 2 is the most di cult part of the book for group
written in additive notation and multiplication, and the concept of coset is confusing
at rst. Chapter 2 After the book was much easier as you go along....
There are many books on linear algebra, in which many people are really great
ones (see for example the list of recommended literature). One might think that one does
no books on this subject. Choose a person's words more carefully, it
can deduce that this book contains everything needed and the best
possible, and so any new book, just repeat the old ones.
This idea is evident wrong, but almost everywhere.
New results in linear algebra and are constantly appearing so refreshing, simple and
neater proof of the famous theorem.
You can teach a course that will give their students exposure to linear algebra. In their first brush with the topic, your students can work with the Euclidean space and the matrix. In contrast, this course will emphasize the abstract vector spaces and linear maps. Bold title of this book deserves an explanation. Almost all linear algebra books use determinants to prove that each linear op-erator on a finite dimensional vector space has a complex eigenvalue.
Here are my online notes for my Calculus I course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes” they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus I or needing a refresher in some of the early topics in calculus. I’ve tried to make these notes as self contained as possible and so all the information needed to read through them is either from an Algebra or Trig class or contained in other sections of the notes.
