The aim of this book is to explain, carefully but not technically, the differences between advanced, research-level mathematics, and the sort of mathematics we learn at school. The most fundamental differences are philosophical, and readers of this book will emerge with a clearer understanding of paradoxical-sounding concepts such as infinity, curved space, and imaginary numbers. The first few chapters are about general aspects of mathematical thought. These are followed by discussions of more specific topics, and the book closes with a chapter answering common sociological questions about the mathematical community (such as "Is it true that mathematicians burn out at the age of 25?")
This book introduces the semantic aspects of natural language processing and its applications. Topics covered include: measuring word meaning similarity, multi-lingual querying, and parametric theory, named entity recognition, semantics, query language, and the nature of language. The book also emphasizes the portions of mathematics needed to understand the discussed algorithms.
International Comparisons in Mathematics Education
A critical overview of the current debate and topical thinking on international comparative investigations in mathematics education. The contributors are all major figures in international comparisons in mathematics. The book highlights strengths and weaknesses in various systems worldwide, allowing teachers, researchers and academics to compare and contrast different approaches. A significant contribution to the international debate on standards in mathematics.
This book collects the work of thirty-five instructors who share their innovations and insights about teaching discrete mathematics. Whether you teach at the college or high school level; whether your students are from mathematics, computer science, or engineering; whether you emphasize logic, proof, counting, graph theory, or applications, you will find resources in this book to supplement your discrete mathematics course.
The very ancient Indian Mathematics Tricks. Vedic is the Holy Book of Hindu. Just one example: Suppose you want the square of 35 (any two digit square ending with 5) Multiply 3 (1st dig) x 4 (1st dig +1) = 12 write then 5 x 5=25 write one after another So, The answer is 1225.
This is the first strand in a brand new series of Developing Mathematics, developed to be fully in line with the government’s Revised Primary Framework for Mathematics. It features completely new content, a fresh up-to-date look both inside and out and 64 pages of attractive ready-made handouts for busy teachers.
