For too many students, mathematics consists of facts in a vacuum, to be memorized because the instructor says so, and to be forgotten when the course of study is completed. In this alltoocommon scenario, young learners often miss the chance to develop skillsspecifically, reasoning skillsthat can serve them for a lifetime. The elegant pages of Teaching Mathematical Reasoning in Secondary School Classrooms propose a more positive solution by presenting a reasoning and discussionbased approach to teaching mathematics, emphasizing the connections between ideas, or why math works. The teachers whose work forms the basis of the book create a powerful record of methods, interactions, and decisions (including dealing with challenges and impasses) involving this elusive topic. And because this approach shifts the locus of authority from the instructor to mathematics itself, students gain a system of knowledge that they can apply not only to discrete tasks relating to numbers, but also to the larger world of people and the humanities. A sampling of the topics covered: Wholeclass discussion methods for teaching mathematics reasoning. Learning mathematical reasoning through tasks. Teaching mathematics using the five strands. Classroom strategies for promoting mathematical reasoning. Maximizing student contributions in the classroom. Overcoming student resistance to mathematical conversations. Teaching Mathematical Reasoning in Secondary School Classrooms makes a wealth of cuttingedge strategies available to mathematics teachers and teacher educators. This book is an invaluable resource for researchers in mathematics and curriculum reform and of great interest to teacher educators and teachers

Lectures in differentiable dynamics by
L Markus(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1971 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These lectures provide a survey of the modern theory of differentiable dynamics as an abstraction of the qualitative theory of ordinary differential equations. Historical and conceptual developments are emphasized as the theories of nonlinear mechanics, topological dynamics, and differential topology contribute to the formation of differentiable dynamics. Important classes of dynamical Systems, such as structurally stable, MorseSmale, Anosov hyperbolic, and generic systems, are described and related to one another and to nonlinear mechanics

Lectures in homological algebra by

7 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume constitutes a record of the course in homological algebra given at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute in July 1970 under the auspices of the National Science Foundation's Regional Conference project. The nature of the audience required that the course begin with an introduction to the notion of modules over a unitary ring, but permitted rapid development of the theory from that starting point. The first three chapters may be regarded as containin g material essential to any introductory course in homological algebra, while the later chapters reflect the choices actually made by the

Rudiments of Ramsey theory by
Ronald L Graham(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is no exaggeration to say that over the past several decades there has been a veritable explosion of activity in the general field of combinatorics. Ramsey theory, in particular, has shown remarkable growth. This book gives a picture of the state of the art of Ramsey theory at the time of Graham's CBMS lectures. In keeping with the style of the lectures, the exposition is informal. However, complete proofs are given for most of the basic results presented. In addition, many useful results may be found in the exercises and problems. Loosely speaking, Ramsey theory is the branch of combinator

Lectures on set theoretic topology by
Mary Ellen Rudin(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This survey presents some recent results connecting set theory with the problems of general topology, primarily giving the applications of classical set theory in general topology and not considering problems involving large numbers. The lectures are completely selfcontainedthis is a good reference book on modern questions of general topology and can serve as an introduction to the applications of set theory and infinite combinatorics

Teaching mathematics in colleges and universities : case studies for today's classroom by
Solomon Friedberg(
Book
)
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Progress in mathematics frequently occurs first by studying particular examples and then by generalizing the patterns that have been observed into farreaching theorems. Similarly, in teaching mathematics one often employs examples to motivate a general principle or to illustrate its use. This volume uses the same idea in the context of learning how to teach: By analyzing particular teaching situations, one can develop broadly applicable teaching skills useful for the professional mathematician. These teaching situations are the case studies of the title." "Each case raises a variety of pedagogical and communication issues that may be explored either individually or in a group facilitated by a faculty member." "The methodology of case studies is widely used in areas such as business and law. The consideration of the mathematics cases presented here will help readers to develop teaching skills for their own classrooms."BOOK JACKET
