Título : The Mathematical Experience, Study Edition Tipo de documento: documento electrónico Autores: Philip J. Davis ; SpringerLink (Online service) ; Reuben Hersh ; Elena Anne Marchisotto Editorial: Boston : Birkhäuser Boston Fecha de publicación: 2012 Colección: Modern Birkhäuser Classics Número de páginas: XXV, 500 p. 139 illus Il.: online resource ISBN/ISSN/DL: 978-0-8176-8295-8 Idioma : Inglés ( eng)Palabras clave: Mathematics Philosophy and social sciences science History Mathematical logic Study teaching Mathematics, general Education of Sciences Logic Foundations Science Clasificación: 51 Matemáticas Resumen: Winner of the 1983 National Book Award, The Mathematical Experience presented a highly insightful overview of mathematics that effectively conveyed its power and beauty to a large audience of mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike. The study edition of the work followed about a decade later, supplementing the original material of the book with exercises to provide a self-contained treatment usable for the classroom. This softcover version reproduces the study edition and includes epilogues by the three original authors to reflect on the book's content 15 years after its publication, and to demonstrate its continued applicability to the classroom. Moreover, The Companion Guide to the Mathematical Experience—originally published and sold separately—is freely available online to instructors who use the work, further enhancing its pedagogical value and making it an exceptionally useful and accessible resource for a wide range of lower-level courses in mathematics and mathematics education. A wealth of customizable online course materials for the book can be obtained from Elena Anne Marchisotto (elena.marchisotto@csun.edu) upon request. Reviews [The authors] have tried to provide a book usable in a course for liberal arts students and for future secondary teachers. They have done much more! This course should be required of every undergraduate major employing the mathematical sciences. It differs from the “mathematics appreciation” courses—courses that are merely a collection of amusing puzzles and toy problems giving an illusion of a mathematical encounter—presently found in many institutions. Students of this course are introduced to the context in which mathematics exists and the incredible magnitude of words devoted to communicating mathematics (hundreds of thousands of theorems each year). How much mathematics can there be? they are asked. Instructors in a “Mathematical Experience” course must be prepared to respond to questions from students concerning the fundamental nature of the whole mathematical enterprise. Stimulated by their reading of the text, students will ask about the underlying logical and philosophical issues, the role of mathematical methods and their origins, the substance of contemporary mathematical advances, the meaning of rigor and proof in mathematics, the role of computational mathematics, and issues of teaching and learning. How real is the conflict between “pure” mathematics, as represented by G.H. Hardy’s statements, and “applied” mathematics? they may ask. Are there other kinds of mathematics, neither pure nor applied? This edition of the book provides a source of problems, collateral readings, references, essay and project assignments, and discussion guides for the course. I believe that it is likely that this course would be a challenge to many teachers and students alike, especially those teachers and students who are willing to follow their curiosity beyond the confines of this book and follow up on the many references that are provided. —Notices of the AMS (Kenneth C. Millett) This beautifully written book can be recommended to any cultivated person with a certain sophistication of thought, and also to the practicing mathematician who will find here a vantage point from which to make a tour d'horizon of his science. —Publ. Math. Debrecen This is an unusual book, being more a book about mathematics than a mathematics book. It includes mathematical issues, but also questions from the philosophy of mathematics, the psychology of mathematical discovery, the history of mathematics, and biographies of mathematicians, in short, a book about the mathematical experience broadly considered… The book found its way into "Much for liberal arts students" courses and into education courses directed at future teachers. Term paper topics, essay assignments, problems, computer applications, and suggested readings are included. This new material should greatly enhance the usefulness of this very creative book. The range of topics covered is immense and the contents cannot easily be summarized. The book makes excellent casual reading, would make a good textbook, or could easily be used as a supplement to nearly any course concerned with mathematics. —Zentralblatt MATH Nota de contenido: Preface -- Preface to the Study Edition -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- Overture -- 1.

It presents clear, rigorous evidence of the impact technology can have in improving students learning of important yet complex mathematical concepts -- and goes beyond a focus on technology alone to clearly explain how teacher professional development, pedagogy, curriculum, and student participation and identity each play an essential role in transforming mathematics classrooms with technology. Further, evidence of effectiveness is complemented by insightful case studies of how key factors lead to enhancing learning, including the contributions of design research, classroom discourse, and meaningful assessment. The volume organizes over 15 years of sustained research by multiple investigators in different states and countries who together developed an approach called "SimCalc" that radical transforms how Algebra and Calculus are taught. The SimCalc program engages students around simulated motions, such as races on a soccer field, and builds understanding using visual representations such as graphs, and familiar representations such as stories to help students to develop meaning for more abstract mathematical symbols. Further, the SimCalc program leverages classroom wireless networks to increase participation by all students in doing, talking about, and reflecting on mathematics. Unlike many technology programs, SimCalc research shows the benefits of balanced attention to curriculum, pedagogy, teacher professional development, assessment and technology -- and has proven effectiveness results at the scale of hundreds of schools and classrooms. Combining the findings of multiple investigators in one accessible volume reveals the depth and breadth of the research program, and engages readers interested in: * Engaging students in deeply learning the important concepts in mathematics * Designing innovative curriculum, software, and professional development · Effective uses of technology to improve mathematics education * Creating integrated systems of teaching that transform mathematics classrooms * Scaling up new pedagogies to hundreds of schools and classrooms * Conducting research that really matters for the future of mathematics learning Nota de contenido: Acknowledgements -- Series Preface: Gabriele Kaiser & Bharath Sriraman -- I.

Título : Gambling Dynamism : The Macao Miracle Tipo de documento: documento electrónico Autores: Victor Zheng ; SpringerLink (Online service) ; Po-san Wan Editorial: Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg Fecha de publicación: 2014 Otro editor: Imprint: Springer Número de páginas: XII, 202 p. 22 illus., 2 illus. in color Il.: online resource ISBN/ISSN/DL: 978-3-642-40749-9 Idioma : Inglés ( eng)Palabras clave: Culture Study and teaching Economics Management science Cultural studies Economics, general Studies Regional Clasificación: 658 Empresas. Organización de empresas Resumen: Four years after the actual implementation of its casino deregulation policy, Macao has surpassed Las Vegas as the world’s top gambling destination in terms of annual turnover. Also, various recent surveys have put Macao at the very top of the list in terms of per capita GDP, as its economy grew shortly after the resumption of Chinese sovereignty.
