How the Brain Learns Mathematics

Learn how the brain processes mathematical concepts and why some students develop math anxiety!

David A. Sousa discusses the cognitive mechanisms for learning mathematics and the environmental and developmental factors that contribute to mathematics difficulties.

How does mathematics impact everyday events? The purpose of this book is to show a range of examples where mathematics can be seen at work in everyday life. From money (APR, mortgage repayments, personal finance), simple first and second order ODEs, sport and games (tennis, rugby, athletics, darts, tournament design, soccer, snooker), business (stock control, linear programming, check digits, promotion policies, investment), the social sciences (voting methods, Simpson’s Paradox, drug testing, measurements of inequality) to TV game shows and even gambling (lotteries, roulette, poker, horse racing), the mathematics behind commonplace events is explored.

This is a version of "commonly used statistics" that has been modified to address the commonly used statistics in survey research and analysis. It is intended to give an *overview* of the various uses of these tests as they apply to survey research questions rather than the point-and-click calculations involved in running the statistics.

IBM SPSS for Intermediate Statistics Use and Interpretation, Fifth Edition

Designed to help readers analyze and interpret research data using IBM SPSS, this user-friendly book shows readers how to choose the appropriate statistic based on the design; perform intermediate statistics, including multivariate statistics; interpret output; and write about the results. The book reviews research designs and how to assess the accuracy and reliability of data; how to determine whether data meet the assumptions of statistical tests; how to calculate and interpret effect sizes for intermediate statistics, including odds ratios for logistic analysis; how to compute and interpret post-hoc power; and an overview of basic statistics for those who need a review.

One of the difficulties many students experience in learning math skills has to do with the fact that an entire language, both spoken and written, has grown up around math. Students that acquire that language are successful in math studies. Students that do not acquire that language have serious problems with mathematics. This dictionary is designed to aid in the acquisition of the language of math. All Math Words Dictionary is written for students of pre-algebra, beginning algebra, geometry and intermediate algebra.

Building an understanding of fundamental Math concepts is essential for a student to move on and conquer more advanced math and science. Understanding addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and percents is absolutely critical. If a student doesn't master these topics early on, it can lead to the "Math Is Hard" syndrome.

Exercises in skip counting, solving number puzzles, understanding hundreds, working with fractions, telling time, adding, subtracting, and beginning to multiply keep kids excited about math.
