#### Combinatorics

Wiley 2003; US$ 192.00 US$ 172.80A 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... more...

#### Understanding in Mathematics

RoutledgeFalmer 1994; US$ 57.95The concept of understanding in mathematics with regard to mathematics education is considered in this volume, the main problem for mathematics teachers being how to facilitate their students' understanding of the mathematics being taught. 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...

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

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 92.76This 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.

#### Scale-isometric Polytopal Graphs In Hypercubes And Cubic Lattices

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 36.00 US$ 32.76This monograph identifies polytopes that are "combinatorially l1-embeddable", within interesting lists of polytopal graphs, i.e. such that corresponding polytopes are either prominent mathematically (regular partitions, root lattices, uniform polytopes and so on), or applicable in chemistry (fullerenes, polycycles, etc.). The embeddability, if any,... more...
