by Elizabeth K. Englander

Learn the truth about bullying in the 21st century: what to look for, and how to cope with the social problems facing today’s kids. Whether dealing with bullying issues or worrying that they might occur, parents are faced with more challenges than ever before. In the age of the internet and social media, traditional approaches to bullying haven’t kept pace with new realities, and new problems like cyberbullying have emerged.

3.1416 And All That

by DAVIS CHINN

LYTTON STRACHEY tells the following story. In intervals of relaxation from his art, the painter Degas used to try his hand at writing sonnets. One day, while so engaged, he found that his in­ spiration had run dry. In desperation he ran to his friend Mallarme, who was a poet. "My poem won't come out," he said, "and yet I'm full of excellent ideas. " "My dear Degas," Mallarme retorted, "poetry is not written with ideas, it is written with words. " If we seek an application of Mallarme's words to mathematics we find that we shall want to turn his paradox around. We are led to say that mathematics does not consist of formulas, it consists of ideas. What is platitudinous about this statement is that mathe­ matics, of course, consists of ideas. Who but the most unregenerate formalist, asserting that mathematics is a meaningless game played with symbols, would deny it? What is paradoxical about the state­ ment is that symbols and formulas dominate the mathematical page, and so one is naturally led to equate mathematics with its formulas.

30-Second Theories: The 50 Most Thought-provoking Theories in Science (30-second Ser.)

by Martin Rees Susan Blackmore Paul Parsons

When it comes to big science, very few things are conclusively known. From Quantum Mechanics to Natural Selection, what we have instead are theories - ideas explain why things happen the way they do. We don't know for certain these are correct - no one ever saw the Big Bang - but with them we can paint beautiful, breathtaking pictures of everything from human behaviour to what the future may hold. Profiling the key scientists behind each theory, "30-Second Theories" presents each entry in a unique, eye-catching full-colour design, with thought-provoking extras and stylish illustrations.

3000 Years of Analysis: Mathematics in History and Culture

by Thomas Sonar

What exactly is analysis? What are infinitely small or infinitely large quantities? What are indivisibles and infinitesimals? What are real numbers, continuity, the continuum, differentials, and integrals?You’ll find the answers to these and other questions in this unique book! It explains in detail the origins and evolution of this important branch of mathematics, which Euler dubbed the “analysis of the infinite.” A wealth of diagrams, tables, color images and figures serve to illustrate the fascinating history of analysis from Antiquity to the present. Further, the content is presented in connection with the historical and cultural events of the respective epochs, the lives of the scholars seeking knowledge, and insights into the subfields of analysis they created and shaped, as well as the applications in virtually every aspect of modern life that were made possible by analysis.

31 Songs

by Nick Hornby

'I decided that I wanted to write a little book of essays about songs I loved ... Songs are what I listen to, almost to the exclusion of everything else.'In his first non-fiction work since Fever Pitch, Nick Hornby writes about 31 songs that either have some great significance in his life - or are just songs that he loves.

360°-Videos in der empirischen Sozialforschung: Ein interdisziplinärer Überblick zum Einsatz von 360°-Videos in Forschung und Lehre

by Julian Windscheid Bernadette Gold

Mit dem vorliegenden Buch wird der Versuch unternommen, eine interdisziplinäre Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema 360°-Videos in Forschung und Lehre aus Sicht verschiedener sozialwissenschaftlicher Disziplinen anzuregen. Es bietet Informationen zur Erstellung von 360°-Videos, zu deren Einsatz in Forschung und Lehre sowie beispielhafte Lehr-Lern-Szenarien mit 360°-Videos in der Hochschuldidaktik. Die Videografie gilt in weiten Teilen der empirischen Sozialforschung als vielversprechendes Mittel der Datengewinnung und erfreut sich auch in der universitären Lehre zunehmender Beliebtheit. Die Anwendung von und der Umgang mit 360°-Videos ist in dieser Diskussion bislang jedoch erst ansatzweise thematisiert worden. Dabei kann diese Technologie einen immensen Fortschritt für die wissenschaftliche Forschung und Lehre bedeuten: Der Bildausschnitt kann frei gewählt werden und mittels einer VR-Brille können die Beobachtenden das Geschehen sogar „hautnah“ miterleben. Gleichzeitig stellen 360°-Videos Forschende und Lehrende vor neue Herausforderungen. Diese beginnen bereits bei der Produktion des Materials und resultieren in der Frage, wie diese Art von Video sinnvoll und nachvollziehbar wissenschaftlich verwendet werden kann.

3D: History, Theory and Aesthetics of the Transplane Image (International Texts in Critical Media Aesthetics)

by Jens Schröter

There is a blind spot in recent accounts of the history, theory and aesthetics of optical media: namely, the field of the three-dimensional, or trans-plane, image. It has been widely used in the 20th century for very different practices - military, scientific and medical visualization - precisely because it can provide more spatial information. And now in the 21st century, television and film are employing the method even more. Appearing for the first time in English, Jens Schroeter's comprehensive study of the aesthetics of the 3D image is a major scholarly addition to this evolving field. Citing case studies from the history of both technology and the arts, this wide-ranging and authoritative book charts the development in the theory and practice of three-dimensional images. Discussing and analyzing the transformation of the socio-cultural and technological milieu, Schroeter has produced a work of scholarship that combines impressive historical scope with contemporary theoretical arguments.

40 lessons to get children thinking: Philosophical Thought Adventures Across The Curriculum

by Peter Worley

This is the type of book many teachers will keep on their desk and use the exercises very regularly; for me it is up there with Geoff Petty's 'Evidence-Based Teaching' and Paul Ginnis's 'The Teacher's Toolkit' as an essential resource. Worley is an excellent clear writer, who communicates very complex ideas very well.†? Francis Gilbert [http://www.francisgilbert.co.uk/], teacher, teacher trainer and author of ' I'm a Teacher, Get Me Out of Here'Inspire your class to think more deeply about curriculum subjects and get them actively taking part in exciting philosophy experiments today!This new book by bestselling author and founder of The Philosophy Foundation Peter Worley is a collection of practical lesson and activity plans to use in the primary classroom to get children thinking philosophically and creatively around different curriculum areas. The sessions - called thought adventures - use thought experiments, stories and poems to get children discussing and understanding topics more deeply. Each session is explained step-by-step, with everything you need to 'do' and 'say' spelled out, and all the equipment you need listed with instructions on how to set up each session. You can implement the sessions in the classroom either as a complete lesson or as an activity within another lesson. All the sessions are tried and tested by Peter and his colleagues at The Philosophy Foundation who work with primary schools on a regular basis.

4000 Jahre Algebra: Geschichte – Kulturen – Menschen (Vom Zählstein zum Computer)

by H.-W. Alten A. Djafari Naini B. Eick M. Folkerts H. Schlosser K.-H. Schlote H. Wesemüller-Kock H. Wußing

Die Entstehung, Entwicklung und Wandlung der Algebra als Teil unserer Kulturgeschichte beschreiben Wissenschaftler von fünf Universitäten. Ursprünge, Anstöße und die Entwicklung algebraischer Begriffe und Methoden werden in enger Verflechtung mit historischen Ereignissen und menschlichen Schicksalen dargestellt. Ein erster Spannungsbogen reicht von den Frühformen des Rechnens mit natürlichen Zahlen und Brüchen zur Lösung einfacher Gleichungen bis hin zur Lösung von Gleichungen dritten und vierten Grades in der Renaissance. Von den misslungenen Versuchen zur Lösung allgemeiner Gleichungen höheren Grades im 17 Jh. zieht sich ein weiterer Bogen zu den berühmten Beweisen des Fundamentalsatzes der Algebra durch Gauß und den genialen Ideen des jungen Galois. Die Wandlung der Algebra von der Gleichungslehre zur Theorie algebraischer Strukturen wird danach ebenso beschrieben, wie die völlig neuen Akzente, die die Computeralgebra in neuester Zeit gesetzt hat. Viele neue farbige Abbildungen bereichern die inhaltlichen Aktualisierungen und Textergänzungen.

4E Cognitive Science and Wittgenstein (New Directions in Philosophy and Cognitive Science)

by Victor Loughlin

This book demonstrates for the first time how the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein can transform 4E Cognitive Science. In particular, it shows how insights from Wittgenstein can empower those within 4E to reject the long held view that our minds must involve representations inside our heads. The book begins by showing how proponents of 4E are divided amongst themselves. Proponents of Extended Mind insist that internal representations are always needed to explain the human mind. However, proponents of Enacted Mind reject this claim. Using insights from Ludwig Wittgenstein, the book introduces and defends a new theoretical framework called Structural Enacted or Extended Mind (STEEM). STEEM brings together Enacted Mind and Extended Mind in a way that rejects all talk of internal representations. STEEM thus highlights the anti-representationalist credentials of 4E and so demonstrates how 4E can herald a new beginning when it comes to thinking about the mind.

4th Refinement Workshop: Proceedings of the 4th Refinement Workshop, organised by BCS-FACS, 9–11 January 1991, Cambridge (Workshops in Computing)

by Roger C. Shaw Joseph M. Morris

This volume contains the proceedings ofthe 4th Refinement Workshop which was organised by the British Computer Society specialist group in Formal Aspects of Computing Science and held in Wolfson College, Cambridge, on 9-11 January, 1991. The term refinement embraces the theory and practice of using formal methods for specifying and implementing hardware and software. Most of the achievements to date in the field have been in developing the theoretical framework for mathematical approaches to programming, and on the practical side in formally specifying software, while more recently we have seen the development of practical approaches to deriving programs from their speCifications. The workshop gives a fair picture of the state of the art: it presents new theories for reasoning about software and hardware and case studies in applying known theory to interesting small-and medium-scale problems. We hope the book will be Of interest both to researchers in formal methods, and to software engineers in industry who want to keep abreast of possible applications of formal methods in industry. The programme consisted both of invited talks and refereed papers. The invited speakers were Ib S0rensen, Jean-Raymond Abrial, Donald MacKenzie, Ralph Back, Robert Milne, Mike Read, Mike Gordon, and Robert Worden who gave the introductory talk. This is the first refinement workshop that solicited papers for refereeing, and despite a rather late call for papers the response was excellent.
