This valuable teachers resource provides teachers with classroom tested activities that help children develop in-depth understandings about 2-D and 3-D geometry concepts and spatial awareness.
Understanding Geometry is more than a book about geometry activities. Kathy provides the following resources for teachers:
- Background information on what we need to know about geometry
- Assessment and observation moments are highlighted - Geometry Terminology Glossary
- Planning Guide for Grades K-3
- Task Cards
|Lecture Notes on Topoi and Quasitopoi
Lowest new price: $65.00
Lowest used price: $54.95
List price: $65.00
Author: Oswald Wyler
Quasitopoi generalize topoi, a concept of major importance in the theory of Categoreis, and its applications to Logic and Computer Science. In recent years, quasitopoi have become increasingly important in the diverse areas of Mathematics such as General Topology and Fuzzy Set Theory. These Lecture Notes are the first comprehensive introduction to quasitopoi, and they can serve as a first introduction to topoi as well.

The subject of space-filling curves has fascinated mathematicians for over a century and has intrigued many generations of students of mathematics. Working in this area is like skating on the edge of reason. Unfortunately, no comprehensive treatment has ever been attempted other than the gallant effort by W. Sierpiriski in 1912. At that time, the subject was still in its infancy and the most interesting and perplexing results were still to come. Besides, Sierpiriski's paper was written in Polish and published in a journal that is not readily accessible (Sierpiriski ). Most of the early literature on the subject is in French, German, and Polish, providing an additional raison d'etre for a comprehensive treatment in English. While there was, understandably, some intensive research activity on this subject around the turn of the century, contributions have, nevertheless, continued up to the present and there is no end in sight, indicating that the subject is still very much alive. The recent interest in fractals has refocused interest on space filling curves, and the study of fractals has thrown some new light on this small but venerable part of mathematics. This monograph is neither a textbook nor an encyclopedic treatment of the subject nor a historical account, but it is a little of each. While it may lend structure to a seminar or pro-seminar, or be useful as a supplement in a course on topology or mathematical analysis, it is primarily intended for self-study by the aficionados of classical analysis.

Orbit and Constellation Design and Management (OCDM) provides greatly expanded detail on many topics first introduced in the 2 of the earlier Wertz works - Spacecraft Attitude Determination and Control (SADC) and Space Mission Analysis and Design (SMAD).
If these two books got you started in mission engineering and you need more detail on the key area of Spacecraft Orbit and Attitude Systems (SOAS), then this book provides more detail in SOAS requirements definition, mission geometry, orbit and constellation design, relative motion of satellites, observation and measurement systems engineering, orbit control and management, and similar topics.

|Conjecture and Proof (Classroom Resource Materials)
Lowest new price: $37.00
Lowest used price: $9.37
List price: $37.00
Author: Miklós Laczkovich
The Budapest semesters in mathematics were initiated with the aim of offering undergraduate courses that convey the tradition of Hungarian mathematics to English-speaking students. This book is an elaborate version of the course on 'Conjecture and Proof'. It gives miniature introductions to various areas of mathematics by presenting some interesting and important, but easily accessible results and methods. The text contains complete proofs of deep results such as the transcendence of e, the Banach-Tarski paradox and the existence of Borel sets of arbitrary (finite) class. One of the purposes is to demonstrate how far one can get from the first principles in just a couple of steps. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum, and any introductory calculus course provides the necessary background for understanding the book. Exercises are included for the benefit of students. However, this book should prove fascinating for any mathematically literate reader.
