#### Mathematics Teacher Education

Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 67.95Currently there is substantial exchange and communication between academic communities around the world as researchers endeavour to discover why so many children 'fail' at a subject that society deems crucial for future economic survival. This book charts current thinking and trends in teacher education around the world, and looks critically at the... more...

#### Theory of Didactical Situations in Mathematics

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 222.54On the occasion of the celebration of ?Twenty Years of Didactique of Ma- ematics? in France, Jeremy Kilpatrick commented that though the works of Guy Brousseau are known through texts referring to them or mentioning their existence, the original texts are unknown, or known only with difficulty, in the non-Fren- speaking world. With very few exceptions,... more...

#### Beliefs: A Hidden Variable in Mathematics Education?

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 67.09This book focuses on aspects of mathematical beliefs, from a variety of different perspectives. Current knowledge of the field is synthesized and existing boundaries are extended. The volume is intended for researchers in the field, as well as for mathematics educators teaching the next generation of students. more...

#### Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 244.35Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline describes the state of the art in a new branch of science. Starting from a general perspective on the didactics of mathematics, the 30 original contributions to the book, drawn from 10 different countries, go on to identify certain subdisciplines and suggest an overall structure or `topology'... more...

#### Abel?s Theorem in Problems and Solutions

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 100.64Do formulas exist for the solution to algebraical equations in one variable of any degree like the formulas for quadratic equations? The main aim of this book is to give new geometrical proof of Abel's theorem, as proposed by Professor V.I. Arnold. The theorem states that for general algebraical equations of a degree higher than 4, there are no formulas... more...

#### A First Graduate Course in Abstract Algebra

Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 115.95Since abstract algebra is so important to the study of advanced mathematics, it is critical that students have a firm grasp of its principles and underlying theories before moving on to further study. To accomplish this, they require a concise, accessible, user-friendly textbook that is both challenging and stimulating. A First Graduate Course in Abstract... more...

#### Elements of Applied Bifurcation Theory

Springer New York 2008; US$ 78.27The favorable reaction to the ?rst edition of this book con?rmed that the publication of such an application-oriented text on bifurcation theory of dynamical systems was well timed. The selected topics indeed cover - jor practical issues of applying the bifurcation theory to ?nite-dimensional problems. This new edition preserves the structure of the... more...
