Download and read online Professor Stewart s Casebook of Mathematical Mysteries in PDF and EPUB Like its wildly popular predecessors Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities and Hoard of Mathematical Treasures, Professor Stewart's brand-new book is a miscellany of over 150 mathematical curios and conundrums, packed with trademark humour and numerous illustrations.In addition to the fascinating formulae and thrilling theorems familiar to Professor Stewart's fans, the Casebook follows the adventures of the not-so-great detective Hemlock Soames and his sidekick Dr John Watsup (immortalised in the phrase 'Watsup, Doc?'). By a remarkable coincidence they live at 222B Baker Street, just across the road from their more illustrious neighbour who, for reasons known only to Dr Watsup, is never mentioned by name. A typical item is 'The Case of the Face-Down Aces', a mathematical magic trick of quite devilish cunning... Ranging from one-liners to four-page investigations from the frontiers of mathematical research, the Casebook reveals Professor Stewart at his challenging and entertaining best.

Download and read online Family Learning in PDF and EPUB The whole concept that author and educator William F. Russell, Ed.D., calls “Family Learning” centers on the fact that children spend only 13% of their waking hours between birth and age 18 in school. What sense does it make to confine all their learning to that narrow sliver of life? Family Learning: How to Help Your Children Succeed in School by Learning at Home offers practical, simple activities that parents can do with their children (grades K-8) to help them understand school concepts by using them in real-world applications. These “learning adventures,” as Dr. Russell calls them, can be done in the kitchen, in the backyard, in the car, on weekends, on holidays, on vacations—wherever and whenever parents and children can find joy in discovering a new piece of learning together. Through these family-centered, out-of-school learning activities, children understand that opportunities for learning are all around them, all the time, no matter where they live or what they happen to be studying in school at the time. Parents can play a powerful role in encouraging this “learning attitude,” which will benefit their children both in school and in life. And it is this attitude toward continual learning that children will take with them into their adult lives, into their careers, and into the families that they themselves create. “Family Learning” is an idea that can become a part of every family, no matter what the family’s income or educational level may be. Decades of clear and consistent research have shown that the activities that are customary in everyday family life are the surest predictor of a child’s success in school. Dr. Russell’s Family Learning book provides parents with a way to begin playing a more-active role in their children’s learning by using whatever time they have available to share fun, time-tested activities that are geared specifically to their child’s interest and level of learning. “What I call ‘Family Learning,’” Dr. Russell explains, “is not just school work at home, but rather, an enjoyable way for families to grow together, as parents and children each grow individually.” Family Learning: How to Help Your Children Succeed in School by Learning at Home identifies hundreds of library books (all with Dewey classifications) and other free or inexpensive learning resources, and it provides over a hundred web links to videos that help parents explain and demonstrate concepts in all school subjects including character development. Family Learning also provides a model that parents, teachers, and community leaders can use to expand learning opportunities—and learning in general—throughout any school district or community.

Download and read online How People Learn in PDF and EPUB First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
