This handbook answers some of the needs of the many people who have to deal with spoken mathematics, yet have insufficient background to know the correct verbal expression for the written symbolic one. Mathematical material is primarily presented visually, and when this material is presented orally, it can be ambiguous. While the parsing of a written expression is clear and well-defined, when it is spoken this clarity may disappear.
Multiplying and dividing large numbers. Simplifying fractions and converting percentages. Handling square roots and exponents. These and other skills are the veritable foundation on which all of mathematics rests. To master them is to unlock the door to more advanced areas of study—such as algebra, geometry, and calculus—and to discover new levels of confidence in dealing with the math of everyday life.
This software teaches and reinforces the math concepts that third graders need to practice the most. The software offers colorful illustrations and interesting activities that focus on understanding and comparing numbers through 9,999, adding and subtracting two-digit, three-digit, and four digit numbers, learning multiplication and division facts, multiplying and dividing by one-digit numbers, and applying number concepts and skills using tables, charts, line plots, and graphs.

The wildly popular test prep guide— updated and enhanced for smartphone users—5 Steps to a 5 AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based Cross-Platform Prep Course 2017 provides a proven strategy to achieving high scores on this demanding Advanced Placement exam.
Language and Mathematics: An Interdisciplinary Guide
This book explores the many disciplinary and theoretical links between language, linguistics, and mathematics. It examines trends in linguistics, such as structuralism, conceptual metaphor theory, and other relevant theories,to show that language and mathematics have a similar structure, but differential functions, even though one without the other would not exist.
From Limits and Continuity to Integration, Areas and Volumes, there is a lot of subject matter to know if you want to succeed on your AP Calculus AB/BC exams. That’s why we’ve selected these 500 AP-style questions and answers that cover all topics found on these exams. The targeted questions will prepare you for what you’ll see on test day, help you study more effectively, and use your review time wisely to achieve your best score.
This book is an ideal text for an advanced course in the theory of complex functions. The author successfully enables the reader to experience function theory personally and to participate in the work of the creative mathematician. Unlike the first volume, it contains numerous glimpses of the function theory of several complex variables emphasizing how autonomous this discipline has become. Covered are Weierstrass' product theorem, Mittag-Leffler's theorem, the Riemann mapping theorem, and Runge's theorems on approximations of analytic functions.
