Teaching mathematics

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....

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).

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.

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 preprecalculus level.

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 operator on a finite dimensional vector space has a complex eigenvalue.
