Math’s infinite mysteries and beauty unfold in this follow-up to the best-selling The Science Book. Beginning millions of years ago with ancient “ant odometers” and moving through time to our modern-day quest for new dimensions, it covers milestones in mathematical history. Among the numerous delights readers will learn about as they dip into this inviting anthology: cicada-generated /5(12). From Building Blocks (National Science Foundation), ideas for finding the mathematics in and developing mathematics from children's activities. 3. National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) offers math standards, Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, and many activities, web-based software environments, and videos.

Combinatorics Through Guided Discovery by Kenneth P. Bogart. Publisher: Dartmouth College Number of pages: Description: This book is an introduction to combinatorial mathematics, also known as combinatorics. The book focuses especially but not exclusively on the part of combinatorics that mathematicians refer to as 'counting'. To the foundation of constructive learning theory established by Piaget, Jerome Bruner contributed important ideas regarding (a) modes of representation, (b) the importance of teaching and learning “optimal structure” (J. S. Bruner, b, p. 41), (c) the spiral curriculum, and (d) learning through acts of discovery in order to rearrange and transform what is learned “in such a way that.

Abstract This chapter introduces a way for enhancing teaching history of mathematics through digital storytelling. Adapting digitals stories in the form of historical documentaries, this chapter also provides components of digital storytelling (point of view, dramatic question, emotional content, the gift of your voice, the power of the soundtrack, economy, pacing, purpose of story, choice of Cited by: 2. $\begingroup$ Awodey's book is rather good at that. The examples are mostly done through partially ordered sets and the lambda-calculus. I personally have found it useful to look through nLab for more examples (where they exist), but Thomas Andrews is right: knowing a bunch of knowledge of algebra, topology, and set theory is useful for examples.

The Essence of Mathematics consists of a sequence of problems – with commentary and full solutions. The reader is assumed to have a reasonable grasp of school mathematics. More importantly, s/he should want to understand something of mathematics beyond the classroom, and be willing to engage with (and to reflect upon) challenging problems that highlight the essence of the discipline.

The Discovering the Art of Mathematics project provides a wealth of resources to support college faculty in teaching Mathematics for Liberal Arts, including a library of 11 inquiry- based learning books, professional development opportunities, and extensive teacher resources.

Summary: Discovery Learning is a method of inquiry-based instruction, discovery learning believes that it is best for learners to discover facts and relationships for themselves. Originator: Jerome Bruner () Keywords: Inquiry-based learning, constructivism Discovery Learning (Bruner) Discovery learning is an inquiry-based, constructivist learning theory that takes place in problem solving.

This book traces the history of how new results in mathematics have provided surprises to mathematicians through the ages.

Examples include how 19th century mathematicians were surprised by the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry and how Godel's Author: Morris Kline. By focusing on problem solving, and discouraging rote memorization, the book shows how to learn and teach mathematics through investigation, experimentation, and discovery.

Rediscovering Mathematics is also an excellent text for training math teachers at all levels. Topics range in difficulty and cover a wide range of historical periods, with. Mathematics, the science of structure, order, and relation that has evolved from elemental practices of counting, measuring, and describing the shapes of objects.

As the emphasis has shifted from teaching problem solving to teaching via problem solving (Lester, Masingila, Mau, Lambdin, dos Santon and Raymond, ), many writers have attempted to clarify what is meant by a problem-solving approach to teaching focus is on teaching mathematical topics through problem-solving contexts and .The concept is to provide a fun, interactive way for children to learn the basic skills and building blocks of mathematics through the use of comic-book style illustrations and story problems.
