This is a new edition of the precalculus text developed by the Consortium based at Harvard University and funded by a National Science Foundation Grant. The text is thought-provoking for well-prepared students while still accessible to students with weaker backgrounds. It provides numerical and graphical approaches as well as algebraic approaches to give students another way of mastering the material. This approach encourages students to persist, thereby lowering failure rates. A large number of real-world examples and problems enable students to create mathematical models that will help them understand the world in which they live. The focus is on those topics that are essential to the study of calculus and these topics are treated in depth. Linear, exponential, power, and periodic functions are introduced before polynomial and rational functions to take advantage of their use to model physical phenomena. Building on the Consortium's Rule of Four: Each function is represented symbolically, numerically, graphically, and verbally where appropriate.

The fifth edition of this market-leading text helps instructors motivate concepts, and students develop critical thinking skills. Functions Modeling Change, 5th edition, is designed to accomplish the main goals of the Precalculus course: to build a solid mathematical foundation and prepare students for Calculus. The authors achieve this by focusing on a small number of key topics, thereby emphasizing depth of understanding rather than breadth of coverage. Functions Modeling Change, 5th edition, presents each function symbolically, numerically, graphically and verbally (the Rule of Four). Additionally, a large number of real-world applications, examples, and problems enable students to create mathematical models that relate to the world around them.

Bill ist IT-Manager bei Parts Unlimited. An einem Dienstagmorgen erhält er auf der Fahrt zur Arbeit einen Anruf seines CEO. Die neue IT-Initiative der Firma mit dem Codenamen Projekt Phoenix ist entscheidend für die Zukunft von Parts Unlimited, aber das Projekt hat Budget und Zeitplan massiv überzogen. Der CEO will, dass Bill direkt an ihn berichtet und das ganze Chaos in neunzig Tagen aufräumt, denn sonst wird Bills gesamte Abteilung outgesourct. Mit der Hilfe eines Vorstandsmitglieds und dessen mysteriöser Philosophie der Drei Wege wird Bill klar, dass IT-Arbeit mehr mit dem Fertigungsbereich in einer Fabrik zu tun hat als er sich je vorstellen konnte. Die Zeit drängt: Bill muss dafür sorgen, dass der Arbeitsfluss auch zwischen den Abteilungen deutlich besser läuft und das Business-Funktionalität zuverlässig bereitgestellt wird. Drei Koryphäen der DevOps-Bewegung liefern hier die rasante und unterhaltsame Story, in der sich jeder, der im IT-Bereich arbeitet, wiederfinden wird. Sie erfahren nicht nur, wie Sie Ihre eigene IT-Organisation verbessern können - nach der Lektüre dieses Buchs werden Sie IT auch nie wieder so sehen wie zuvor.

This is a text that contains the latest in thinking and the best in practice. It provides a state-of-the-art statement on tertiary teaching from a multi-perspective standpoint. No previous book has attempted to take such a wide view of the topic. The book will be of special interest to academic mathematicians, mathematics educators, and educational researchers. It arose from the ICMI Study into the teaching and learning of mathematics at university level (initiated at the conference in Singapore, 1998).

Mathematical Modelling

A Way of Life - ICTMA 11

Mathematical modelling is often spoken of as a way of life, referring to habits of mind and to dependence on the power of mathematics to describe, explain, predict and control real phenomena. This book aims to encourage teachers to provide opportunities for students to model a variety of real phenomena appropriately matched to students’ mathematical backgrounds and interests from early stages of mathematical education. Habits, misconceptions, and mindsets about mathematics can present obstacles to university students’ acceptance of a ‘‘models-and-modelling perspective’’ at this stage of mathematics education. Without prior experience in building, interpreting and applying mathematical models, many students may never come to view and regard modelling as a way of life. The book records presentations at the ICTMA 11 conference held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2003.

Der große Schicksalsroman Durch Zufall erfährt die in ärmlichen Verhältnissen lebende Tess Durbeyfield, dass ihre Familie einem alten normannischen Adelsgeschlecht entstammt. Ihr Entschluss, vermeintliche Verwandte zu besuchen, hat fatale Folgen für die junge Frau: Sie trifft auf die zwei Männer, die den Gang ihres Schicksals unheilvoll lenken. Mit Tess sorgte Thomas Hardy 1891 für Aufsehen. Der Roman zählt zu den großen Klassikern der englischen Literatur. Diese Neuausgabe in attraktiver Sonderausstattung bietet die zeitgemäße Übersetzung von Helga Schulz.

Differentialgleichungen und ihre Anwendungen

Author: Martin Braun

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 3642973418

Category: Mathematics

Page: 596

View: 6337

Dieses richtungsweisende Lehrbuch für die Anwendung der Mathematik in anderen Wissenschaftszweigen gibt eine Einführung in die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen. Fortran und APL-Programme geben den Studenten die Möglichkeit, verschiedene numerische Näherungsverfahren an ihrem PC selbst durchzurechnen. Aus den Besprechungen: "Die Darstellung ist überall mathematisch streng und zudem ungemein anregend. Abgesehen von manchen historischen Bemerkungen ... tragen dazu die vielen mit ausführlichem Hintergrund sehr eingehend entwickelten praktischen Anwendungen bei. ... Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der physikalisch und technisch so wichtigen Frage nach Stabilität von Lösungen eines Systems von Differentialgleichungen gewidmet. Das Buch ist wegen seiner geringen Voraussetzungen und vorzüglichen Didaktik schon für alle Studenten des 3. Semesters geeignet; seine eminent praktische Haltung empfiehlt es aber auch für alle Physiker, die mit Differentialgleichungen und ihren Anwendungen umzugehen haben." #Physikalische Blätter#
