Math Puzzles and Games, Grades 6-8: Over 300 Reproducible Puzzles that Teach Math and Problem Solving
Math Puzzles and Games, Grades 6-8: Over 300 Reproducible Puzzles that Teach Math and Problem Solving
In the 1950s we punished misbehaving students in middle school or junior high school by making them stay after school to do 100 multiplication or long-division math problems. Mathematics was taught in a highly ordered and mechanically repetitive manner with the objective being to master basic arithmetic skills. A decade later New Math emerged as a...
Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)
Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

“Newton’s Gravity” conveys the power of simple mathematics to tell the fundamental truth about nature. Many people, for example, know the tides are caused by the pull of the Moon and to a lesser extent the Sun. But very few can explain exactly how and why that happens. Fewer still can calculate the  actual pulls of the...

Arduino Wearables
Arduino Wearables
At a young age, I lived very close to my grandmothers and I used to visit them often. Both of my grandmothers were very skilled in textile handcrafts and, along with my mother, were firm believers that sewing is one of those basic skills that everyone should know. One grandmother was amazing at crocheting and needlepoint, and the...
BigNum Math: Implementing Cryptographic Multiple Precision Arithmetic
BigNum Math: Implementing Cryptographic Multiple Precision Arithmetic
The origins of this book are part of an interesting period of my life. A period that
saw me move from a shy and disorganized young adult, into a software developer
who has toured various parts of the world, and met countless new friends and
colleagues. It all began in December of 2001, nearly five years ago. I started a
project

Financial Simulation Modeling in Excel, + Website: A Step-by-Step Guide (Wiley Finance)
Financial Simulation Modeling in Excel, + Website: A Step-by-Step Guide (Wiley Finance)
Regardless of where I work, simulation has crept into my financial career. After nearly a decade of working with it in many capacities I’ve found it to be a mixed blessing. In many investment companies when the term simulation is simply brought up there are a variety of reactions. The two most visible camps of thought...
Learning Classifier Systems: From Foundations to Applications
Learning Classifier Systems: From Foundations to Applications

Learning classi er systems are a machine learning paradigm introduced by John Holland in 1976. They are rule-based systems in which learning is viewed as a process of ongoing adaptation to a partially unknown environment through genetic algorithms and temporal di erence learning.

From the beginning, classi er systems have attracted...

Rethinking Urban Parks: Public Space and Cultural Diversity
Rethinking Urban Parks: Public Space and Cultural Diversity
William H. Whyte set out to discover why some New York City public spaces were successes, fi lled with people and activities, while others were empty, cold, and unused. After seven years of fi lming small parks and plazas in the city, he found that only a few plazas in New York City were attracting daily users and saw this decline as a threat to...
C Traps and Pitfalls
C Traps and Pitfalls
C Traps and Pitfalls teaches how the peculiarities of the C language make it easy for the intended behavior of a program and the actual behavior of a program to differ. The book's experienced author, Koenig, follows up with examples and helpful advice on many of these "pitfalls." Each chapter includes exercises for...
Essentials of Programming Languages, 3rd Edition
Essentials of Programming Languages, 3rd Edition

This book brings you face-to-face with the most fundamental idea in computer programming:

The interpreter for a computer language is just another program. It sounds obvious, doesn’t it? But the implications are profound. If you are a computational theorist, the interpreter idea recalls Gödel’s discovery of

The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of Zero
The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of Zero
A symbol for what is not there, an emptiness that increases any number it's added to, an inexhaustible and indispensable paradox. As we enter the year 2000, zero is once again making its presence felt. Nothing itself, it makes possible a myriad of calculations. Indeed, without zero mathematics as we know it would not exist. And without mathematics...
More than Nature Needs: Language, Mind, and Evolution
More than Nature Needs: Language, Mind, and Evolution

The human mind is an unlikely evolutionary adaptation. How did humans acquire cognitive capacities far more powerful than anything a hunting-and-gathering primate needed to survive? Alfred Russel Wallace, co-founder with Darwin of evolutionary theory, saw humans as "divine exceptions" to natural selection. Darwin thought use of...
