Like its predecessor, Proofs without Words, this book is a collection of pictures or diagrams that help the reader see why a particular mathematical statement may be true, and how one could begin to go about proving it. While in some proofs without words an equation or two may appear to help guide that process, the emphasis is clearly on providing visual clues to stimulate mathematical thought. The proofs in this collection are arranged by topic into five chapters: geometry and algebra; trigonometry, calculus and analytic geometry; inequalities; integer sums; and sequences and series. Teachers will find that many of the proofs in this collection are well suited for classroom discussion and for helping students to think visually in mathematics.

Im Mathematikunterricht der Grundschule werden PCs zumeist mit Trainingsprogrammen genutzt. Dies bedeutet eine erhebliche Einschränkung, weil es vielfältige sinnvolle Möglichkeiten für den Einsatz von PCs im Unterricht gibt, die eine wertvolle Bereichung für das Lernen darstellen können. Die vorliegende Publikation zeichnet sich durch einen Fokus auf die Mathematikdidaktik aus. Ziel ist, fachdidaktisch begründete Chancen digitaler Medien für einen zeitgemäßen Mathematikunterricht auszuschöpfen. In Anlehnung an seit Jahren entwickelte und erprobte fachdidaktische Konzepte wollen wir in diesem Buch v. a. diese mathematikdidaktische Perspektive in den Vordergrund stellen. Wir laden Sie ein, sich im Rahmen von konkreten Aufgaben- und Fragestellungen eine eigene fundierte Meinung und Position zu bilden. Zur Begründung dienen konsequent die fachdidaktischen Gütekriterien für einen „sach-gerechten“ Einsatz digitaler Medien im Mathematikunterricht der Grundschule.

Proofs without words (PWWs) are figures or diagrams that help the reader see why a particular mathematical statement is true, and how one might begin to formally prove it true. PWWs are not new, many date back to classical Greece, ancient China, and medieval Europe and the Middle East. PWWs have been regular features of the MAA journals Mathematics Magazine and The College Mathematics Journal for many years, and the MAA published the collections of PWWs Proofs Without Words: Exercises in Visual Thinking in 1993 and Proofs Without Words II: More Exercises in Visual Thinking in 2000. This book is the third such collection of PWWs. The proofs in the book are divided by topic into five chapters: Geometry & Algebra; Trigonometry, Calculus & Analytic Geometry; Inequalities; Integers & Integer Sums; and Infinite Series & Other Topics. The proofs in the book are intended primarily for the enjoyment of the reader, however, teachers will want to use them with students at many levels: high school courses from algebra through precalculus and calculus; college level courses in number theory, combinatorics, and discrete mathematics; and pre-service and in-service courses for teachers.

The Calculus Collection is a useful resource for everyone who teaches calculus, in high school or in a 2- or 4-year college or university. It consists of 123 articles, selected by a panel of six veteran high school teachers, each of which was originally published in Math Horizons, MAA Focus, The American Mathematical Monthly, The College Mathematics Journal, or Mathematics Magazine. The articles focus on engaging students who are meeting the core ideas of calculus for the first time. The Calculus Collection is filled with insights, alternate explanations of difficult ideas, and suggestions for how to take a standard problem and open it up to the rich mathematical explorations available when you encourage students to dig a little deeper. Some of the articles reflect an enthusiasm for bringing calculators and computers into the classroom, while others consciously address themes from the calculus reform movement. But most of the articles are simply interesting and timeless explorations of the mathematics encountered in a first course in calculus.The MAA has twice previously issued a calculus reader, collecting articles on calculus from its journals: Selected Papers in Calculus, published in 1969 and reprinted as Part I of A Century of Calculus, and Part II published in 1992. In a sense The Calculus Collection is the third volume in that series, but different in that it is a collection chosen for its usefulness to those who teach first-year calculus in high schools as well as colleges and universities.

Walford's Guide to Reference Material: Generalia, language and literature, the arts

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

Examine descriptions of 8,300 plus critically evaluated and recommended reference resources available in all formats.Organized by Universal Decimal Classification, the topics covered are those usually found in the 100s -- Philosophy and Psychology, 200s -- Religion, 300s -- Social Sciences, and the 900s -- Geography, Biography and History.This volume particularly reflects the proliferation of travel and tourist guides, and reference works on Eastern Europe and Central Asia following the collapse of comnunism. Over the last few years an enormous expansion has also been noted of reference works in both religion and philosophy.
