  • Diagnostische Kompetenz von Mathematik-Lehramtsstudierendenby Hannah Heinrichs

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 69.99

    Vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Diskussion zur Lehrerprofessionalität geht Hannah Heinrichs der Frage nach, wie diagnostische Kompetenzen von (angehenden) Lehrkräften effektiv gefördert werden können. Die Autorin konzentriert sich dabei auf die fehlerdiagnostische Kompetenz von Mathematik-Lehramtsstudierenden und untersucht, wie sich bereits in der... more...

  • Games, Puzzles, and Computationby Robert A. Hearn; Erik D. Demaine

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 54.95

    The authors show that there are underlying mathematical reasons for why games and puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of computation?quite different from the usual models of automata and circuits?offering a new way of thinking about computation. The appendices... more...

  • Mathematical Applications and Modellingby World Scientific

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 47.00

    Mathematical Applications and Modelling is the second in the series of the yearbooks of the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore. The book is unique as it addresses a focused theme on mathematics education. The objective is to illustrate the diversity within the theme and present research that translates into classroom pedagogies.The book,... more...

  • Mathematical Problem Posingby Florence Mihaela Singer; Nerida F. Ellerton; Jinfa Cai

    Springer New York 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book analyzes the contribution of a problem posing approach to teaching mathematics, including discussion of its impact on the development of theoretical frameworks, teaching practices and research on mathematical problem posing over the last 50 years. more...

  • Mathematical Problem Solvingby MCBRIDE P K

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    This book is addressed to people with research interests in the nature of mathematical thinking at any level, to people with an interest in "higher-order thinking skills" in any domain, and to all mathematics teachers. The focal point of the book is a framework for the analysis of complex problem-solving behavior. That framework is presented in Part... more...

  • Mathematics for the Liberal Artsby Jason I. Brown

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 89.95

    Students See How Far a Little Math Can Take Them in Their Daily Lives Mathematics for the Liberal Arts teaches everyday mathematics topics to non-math majors at the undergraduate level. Through numerous examples and more than 600 exercises, students learn how to use math seamlessly in a variety of practical areas, from conversion factors, statistics,... more...

  • Problem Posingby Stephen I. Brown; Marion I. Walter

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 58.95

    As a result of the editors' collaborative teaching at Harvard in the late 1960s, they produced a ground-breaking work -- The Art Of Problem Posing -- which related problem posing strategies to the already popular activity of problem solving. It took the concept of problem posing and created strategies for engaging in that activity as a central theme... more...

  • The Art of Problem Posingby Stephen I. Brown; Marion I. Walter

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 47.95

    The new edition of this classic book describes and provides a myriad of examples of the relationships between problem posing and problem solving, and explores the educational potential of integrating these two activities in classrooms at all levels. The Art of Problem Posing, Third Edition encourages readers to shift their thinking about problem... more...

  • The Art of Problem Posing, Second Editionby Stephen I. Brown; Marion I. Walter

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 47.95

    Updated and expanded, this second edition satisfies the same philosophical objective as the first -- to show the importance of problem posing. Although interest in mathematical problem solving increased during the past decade, problem posing remained relatively ignored. The Art of Problem Posing draws attention to this equally important act and is... more...

  • Convex Analysisby Steven G. Krantz

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 79.95

    Convexity is an ancient idea going back to Archimedes. Used sporadically in the mathematical literature over the centuries, today it is a flourishing area of research and a mathematical subject in its own right. Convexity is used in optimization theory, functional analysis, complex analysis, and other parts of mathematics. Convex Analysis introduces... more...
