Creative Secondary School Mathematics 125 Enrichment Units For Grades 7 To 12

Thus, from the total number of leap years, a certain number of leap years must be subtracted. Example: December 25, 1954. 1 + 1953 +488 (leap years) −15 (century leap years 19 − 4) + 358 (number of days between January 1, 1954, ...

Creative Secondary School Mathematics  125 Enrichment Units For Grades 7 To 12

There are many topics within the scope of the secondary school mathematics curriculum that are clearly of a motivational sort, and because of lack of time they are usually not included in the teaching process. This book provides the teacher 125 individual units — ranging from grades 7 through 12 — that can be used to enhance the mathematics curriculum. Each unit presents a preassessment, instructional objectives, and a detailed description of the topic as well as teaching suggestions. Each unit has a post-assessment. This is the sort of instructional intervention that can make students love mathematics!

Arithmetic for Teachers

Excellent teaching of mathematics at the elementary school level requires that the teacher be an expert in school mathematics. This textbook for prospective teachers presents topics from the K-6 mathematics curriculum, but at a greater depth than is usually found in the classroom. The added knowledge that comes from this approach gives the teacher essential insight into how the topics interrelate and where difficulties might lie. With this deeper mathematical preparation, the teacher is better able to explain concepts, demonstrate computational procedures and lead students through problem-solving techniques. The primary focus is on the foundations of arithmetic, along with a selection of topics from geometry and a wide range of applications. The number line is used throughout to visualize concepts and to tie them to the solution of problems. The book emphasizes how to explain the concepts and how to explain problem solutions. This is a textbook for a college course in mathematics for prospective elementary school teachers. It will also be a resource for the instructors of such courses.

QUICKER MATHEMATICS for ALL

Mathematics is integral part of competitive exam. The subject is used starting from daily life to advanced scientific field. Over the generation mathematics has become the language of science & played immense role in advancing human culture. The subject is integral part of school curriculum still many student find the subject difficult. No matter how hard we try , we can't run away from at least basic mathematics. Because it requires in almost all business. The math develops logical , rational thinking. Its not only just solving problem but it is the way to deal with unknown situation use the resource , knowledge at our hand. To master this subject, conceptual study is required. But most of time student run behind thousands of shortcut. Shortcuts varies from problem to problem. Hence by such approach to master in subject one has to remember thousands of unnecessary shortcuts. Its is stressful & often decreases accuracy. So instead of learning thousands shortcuts , its better to understand subject logically, conceptually. Such one time learning give advantages to student lifetime. This book gives generic concept by using which one can solve problem faster than shortcuts. Since ,methods are generic. So they are limited. Many methods in this books are the result of deep insight, understanding research in subject & they are not available elsewhere. Editing this book was quite hectic process. The different colours are added to make explanation easy to understand. ------------------------------------------------------------- LEARN MATHEMATICS ONE TIME | REMEMBER LIFE TIME || ------------------------------------------------------------------- SALIENT FEATURE ------------------------------------------------------------------ o Uses clear, easy language to understand o Explain subject with unified, coherent approach o Simplifies quicker methods of Vedic Mathematics o Goes from basic to advance level o Gives quicker method for all topics that include Multiplication, Division, Power & roots, Equation, LCM -HCF etc. o Effective use of different colors to simplify lesson, to emphasize essential concept. o Present novel methods invented by authors for topics like Divisibility checking, Higher power & roots, Squaring etc. o Useful for competitive exams to solve problems instantaneously

The Python Workbook

This student-friendly textbook encourages the development of programming skills through active practice by focusing on exercises that support hands-on learning. The Python Workbook provides a compendium of 186 exercises, spanning a variety of academic disciplines and everyday situations. Solutions to selected exercises are also provided, supported by brief annotations that explain the technique used to solve the problem, or highlight a specific point of Python syntax. This enhanced new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded with additional exercises, along with concise introductions that outline the core concepts needed to solve them. The exercises and solutions require no prior background knowledge, beyond the material covered in a typical introductory Python programming course. Features: uses an accessible writing style and easy-to-follow structure; includes a mixture of classic exercises from the fields of computer science and mathematics, along with exercises that connect to other academic disciplines; presents the solutions to approximately half of the exercises; provides annotations alongside the solutions, which explain the approach taken to solve the problem and relevant aspects of Python syntax; offers a variety of exercises of different lengths and difficulties; contains exercises that encourage the development of programming skills using if statements, loops, basic functions, lists, dictionaries, files, and recursive functions. Undergraduate students enrolled in their first programming course and wishing to enhance their programming abilities will find the exercises and solutions provided in this book to be ideal for their needs.
