#### Funktionale Modellierung und Rekursion

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 42.00Erst mit der Möglichkeit der Programmierung und der Entwicklung der theoretischen Informatik hat die Rekursion ihr mathematisches Schattendasein aufgeben können. Trotzdem ist ihr der Einzug in die Schulmathematik bis auf rudimentäre Ansätze nicht gelungen, obwohl sie ein mächtiges funktionales Werkzeug mit umfassendem Einsatzgebiet darstellt.... more...

#### Views and Beliefs in Mathematics Education

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 89.99International mathematics education researchers give a differentiated overview of views and beliefs of both teachers and students. Beliefs about how to teach mathematics have a high impact on the instructional practice of teachers. In the same way, views and beliefs about mathematics are an essential factor to explain achievement and performance of... more...

#### Combinatorics

Wiley 2003; US$ 192.00 US$ 166.40A mathematical gem?freshly cleaned and polished This book is intended to be used as the text for a first course in combinatorics. the text has been shaped by two goals, namely, to make complex mathematics accessible to students with a wide range of abilities, interests, and motivations; and to create a pedagogical tool, useful to the broad spectrum... more...

#### 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$ 309.00On 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...

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

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 149.00Do 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...

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

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 99.00This 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$ 299.00Didactics 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...

#### Elements of Applied Bifurcation Theory

Springer New York 2008; US$ 99.00The 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...

#### Affine Hecke Algebras and Orthogonal Polynomials

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 116.00 US$ 95.12First account of a theory, created by Macdonald, of a class of orthogonal polynomial, which is related to mathematical physics. more...
