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.

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.

Nach der Analysis ist vor der Analysis. Dies ist das richtige Buch f?r Sie, wenn es in der Analysis ein wenig mehr sein soll oder auch muss. Mark Zegarelli erkl?rt Ihnen, was Sie zur infiniten Integration und zu differential- und multivariablen Gleichungen wissen m?ssen. Er f?hrt mit Taylorreihe und Substitutionen fort und f?hrt Sie auch in die Dritte Dimension der Analysis; und das ist lange noch nicht alles! Im Ton verbindlich, in der Sache kompetent f?hrt er Ihre Analysiskenntnisse auf eine neue Stufe.

Statistik-Workshop für Programmierer

Wenn Sie programmieren können, beherrschen Sie bereits Techniken, um aus Daten Wissen zu extrahieren. Diese kompakte Einführung in die Statistik zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie rechnergestützt, anstatt auf mathematischem Weg Datenanalysen mit Python durchführen können. Praktischer Programmier-Workshop statt grauer Theorie: Das Buch führt Sie anhand eines durchgängigen Fallbeispiels durch eine vollständige Datenanalyse -- von der Datensammlung über die Berechnung statistischer Kennwerte und Identifikation von Mustern bis hin zum Testen statistischer Hypothesen. Gleichzeitig werden Sie mit statistischen Verteilungen, den Regeln der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung, Visualisierungsmöglichkeiten und vielen anderen Arbeitstechniken und Konzepten vertraut gemacht. Statistik-Konzepte zum Ausprobieren: Entwickeln Sie über das Schreiben und Testen von Code ein Verständnis für die Grundlagen von Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Statistik: Überprüfen Sie das Verhalten statistischer Merkmale durch Zufallsexperimente, zum Beispiel indem Sie Stichproben aus unterschiedlichen Verteilungen ziehen. Nutzen Sie Simulationen, um Konzepte zu verstehen, die auf mathematischem Weg nur schwer zugänglich sind. Lernen Sie etwas über Themen, die in Einführungen üblicherweise nicht vermittelt werden, beispielsweise über die Bayessche Schätzung. Nutzen Sie Python zur Bereinigung und Aufbereitung von Rohdaten aus nahezu beliebigen Quellen. Beantworten Sie mit den Mitteln der Inferenzstatistik Fragestellungen zu realen Daten.
