Book Summary:

This is a book of mathematical stories — funny and puzzling mathematical stories. They tell of villains who try to steal secrets, heroes who encode their messages, and mathematicians who spend years on end searching for the best way to pile oranges. There are also stories about highway confusions occurring when the rules of Cartesian geometry are ignored, small-change errors due to ignorance of ancient paradoxes, and mistakes in calendars arising from poor numerical approximations. This book is about the power and beauty of mathematics. It shows mathematics in action, explained in a way that everybody can understand. It is a book for enticing youngsters and inspiring teachers. Nuno Crato is a leading science writer and mathematician, whose entertaining essays have won a number of international awards.

Book Summary:

Many systems of logic diagrams have been offered both historically and more recently. Each of them has clear limitations. An original alternative system is offered here. It is simpler, more natural, and more expressively and inferentially powerful. It can be used to analyze not only syllogisms but arguments involving relational terms and unanalyzed statement terms.

Book Summary:

Feynman's Tips on Physics is a delightful collection of Richard P. Feynman's insights and an essential companion to his legendary Feynman Lectures on Physics With characteristic flair, insight, and humor, Feynman discusses topics physics students often struggle with and offers valuable tips on addressing them. Included here are three lectures on problem-solving and a lecture on inertial guidance omitted from The Feynman Lectures on Physics. An enlightening memoir by Matthew Sands and oral history interviews with Feynman and his Caltech colleagues provide firsthand accounts of the origins of Feynman's landmark lecture series. Also included are incisive and illuminating exercises originally developed to supplement The Feynman Lectures on Physics, by Robert B. Leighton and Rochus E. Vogt. Feynman's Tips on Physics was co-authored by Michael A. Gottlieb and Ralph Leighton to provide students, teachers, and enthusiasts alike an opportunity to learn physics from some of its greatest teachers, the creators of The Feynman Lectures on Physics.

Book Summary:

This book tells a single story, in many voices, about a serious and sustained set of changes in mathematics teaching practice in a high school and how those efforts influenced and were influenced by a local university. It includes the writings and perspectives of high school students, high school teachers, preservice teacher candidates, doctoral students in mathematics education and other fields, mathematics teacher educators, and other education faculty. As a whole, this case study provides an opportunity to reflect on reform visions of mathematics for all students and the challenges inherent in the implementation of these visions in US schools. It challenges us to rethink boundaries between theory and practice and the relative roles of teachers and university faculty in educational endeavors.

Book Summary:

If you think you know the Brown, LeMay Bursten Chemistry text, think again. In response to market request, we have created the third Australian edition of the US bestseller, Chemistry: The Central Science. An extensive revision has taken this text to new heights! Triple checked for scientific accuracy and consistency, this edition is a more seamless and cohesive product, yet retains the clarity, innovative pedagogy, functional problem-solving and visuals of the previous version. All artwork and images are now consistent in quality across the entire text. And with a more traditional and logical organisation of the Organic Chemistry content, this comprehensive text is the source of all the information and practice problems students are likely to need for conceptual understanding, development of problem solving skills, reference and test preparation.

Book Summary:

George Inness (1825-94), long considered one of America's greatest landscape painters, has yet to receive his full due from scholars and critics. A complicated artist and thinker, Inness painted stunningly beautiful, evocative views of the American countryside. Less interested in representing the details of a particular place than in rendering the "subjective mystery of nature," Inness believed that capturing the spirit or essence of a natural scene could point to a reality beyond the physical or, as Inness put it, "the reality of the unseen." Throughout his career, Inness struggled to make visible what was invisible to the human eye by combining a deep interest in nineteenth-century scientific inquiry—including optics, psychology, physiology, and mathematics—with an idiosyncratic brand of mysticism. Rachael Ziady DeLue's George Inness and the Science of Landscape—the first in-depth examination of Inness's career to appear in several decades—demonstrates how the artistic, spiritual, and scientific aspects of Inness's art found expression in his masterful landscapes. In fact, Inness's practice was not merely shaped by his preoccupation with the nature and limits of human perception; he conceived of his labor as a science in its own right. This lavishly illustrated work reveals Inness as profoundly invested in the science and philosophy of his time and illuminates the complex manner in which the fields of art and science intersected in nineteenth-century America. Long-awaited, this reevaluation of one of the major figures of nineteenth-century American art will prove to be a seminal text in the fields of art history and American studies.

Book Summary:

The book provides some of the information everyone is unconsciously looking for. It mentions subjects only a philosopher would know about and more. It provides an idea to change the age old belief that there is not enough to go around, and therefore we war about the most fundamental resources we can find on Earth. The book explains (to the best of my knowledge) that the universe is a giving entity, and all we have to do is learn how this is possible. This giving entity is fundamentally two particles in union, which is a self-contained unit at every scale. This union is a dynamic entity which looks like a Torus that generates everything. Ancient arts like sacred geometry and others are testimony that there is a fundamental geometric structure in all things, and the book highlights this sacred structure (known as the Metatrons Cube) which is governed by a conscious mind that generates all physical things we are so familiar with. It also mentions motion which relates to the golden ratio and how algorithmic functions can explain some of the infinite possibilities we are confronted with.
