#### Teaching Mathematics in Multilingual Classrooms

Springer 2001; US$ 120.00Identifies three inter-related dilemmas at the heart of the multi-lingual classroom - code-switching, mediation, and transparency. The author's arguments arise from exploring the realities of actual classrooms, and are shaped by a perspective of teaching as a social practice. more...

#### Transitions Between Contexts of Mathematical Practices

Springer 2001; US$ 145.00This text focuses attention on mathematics learners in transition and on their practices in different contexts; on the institutional and socio-cultural framing of the transition processes involved; and on the communication and negotiation of mathematical meanings during transition. more...

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

Springer 2003; US$ 152.00The 20 chapters in this book all focus on aspects of mathematical beliefs, from a variety of different perspectives. Thus, contemporary knowledge of the field is synthesized and existing boundaries are extended. more...

#### Dialogue and Learning in Mathematics Education. Intention, Reflection, Critique

Springer 2003; US$ 114.00This title is concerned with communication in mathematics class-rooms. In a series of empirical studies of project work, it follows students' inquiry co-operation as well as students' obstructions to inquiry co-operation. more...

#### Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline

Springer 1993; US$ 299.00This text describes the state-of-the-art in this branch of science. Starting from a general perspective on the didactics of mathematics, the 30 original contributions to the book go on to identify certain subdisciplines and suggest an overall structure or 'topology' for the field. more...

#### Configurational Forces As Basic Concepts of Continuum Physics {Applied Mathematical Sciences (Springer-Verlag New York Inc.) ; V. 137}

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2000; US$ 79.95This is an exploration of the configurational forces within the idealized continuum where fluids or other materials are in a continuous distribution of matter with no empty space, so that molecular structure is ignored, and average pressure, velocity, etc. are considered. more...

#### Elements of Applied Bifurcation Theory {Applied Mathematical Sciences (Springer-Verlag New York Inc.) ; V. 112}

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2001; US$ 88.95This title provides a solid basis in non-linear dynamical systems and their bifurcations, giving the necessary understanding of the approaches, methods, results and terminology used in the modern applied mathematics literature. This new edition updates theoretical and software developments. more...

#### Extremal Combinatorial Problems and Their Applications {Mathematics and Its Applications (Kluwer Academic Publishers) ; V. 335}

Springer 1995; US$ 134.00Part course text for advanced graduate students and beginning engineers and part reference for the more experienced, develops methods for solving practical and mathematical problems arising in the creation of automatic control systems. Covers information from combinatorics, extremal problems on the more...

#### Random Perturbation Methods With Applications in Science and Engineering {Applied Mathematical Sciences (Springer-Verlag New York Inc.) ; V. 150}

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2002; US$ 79.95This title covers the impact of noise on models that are widely used in science and engineering, and applies perturbed methods which assume noise changes on a faster time or space scale than the system being studied. It develops mathematical methods of studying random perturbations of dynamical systems and presents non-random problems. more...

#### Recent Advances in Algoriths and Combinatorics {CMS Books in Mathematics ; 11}

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2002; US$ 99.00This title consists of nine survey articles on various advances in algorithmic combinatorics. The articles cover both recent areas of application and exciting new theoretical developments. The book is accessible to Ph.D. students in discrete mathematics or theoretical computer science and is intended for researchers in the field of combinatorics. more...
