Curious about quarks, quasers and the fantastic universe around you? Ever wanted to explore mathematical proof? Need some trigonometry fast? Want to swap up physics, chemistry, or learn some new biology? Ever wondered why your scratches itch before you go to sleep?
Beautifully illustrated and packed with fascinating and useful information, SCIENCIA is the ultimate one-stop science reference book for inquisitive readers for all ages. Whether you just want to bursh up on what you learnt at school, still are at school, or never went to school, these pages will test you, stretch you, and make you brainier. 

 Partial Differential Equations - T Hillen, I. E. Leonard, H. Van Roessel 

Partial Differntial equationsUniquely provides fully solved problems for linear partial differential equations and boundary value problems Partial Differential Equations: Theory and Completely Solved Problems utilizes real-world physical models alongside essential theoretical concepts. With extensive examples, the book guides readers through the use of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) for successfully solving and modeling phenomena in engineering, biology, and the applied sciences. The book focuses exclusively on linear PDEs and how they can be solved using the separation of variables technique. 

The Impact of Identity in K-8 Mathematics - Julia Aguirre, Karen Mayfield-Ingram, Danny Martin

the impact

Each teacher and student brings many identities to the classroom. What is their impact on the student's learning and the teacher's teaching of mathematics?
this book invites K-8 teachers to reflect on their own and their studnets' multiple identities. Rich possibilities for learning result when teachers draw on these identities to offer high-quality, equity-based teaching to all studnets.

One Equals Zero and Other Mathematical Suprises Nitsa Movshovitz-Hadar, John Webb

one equals zero

One Equals Zero! Every number is greater than itself! All triangles are isosceles! Suprised? Welcome to the world of One Equals Zero and Other Mathematical Supirses. In this engaging book of blackline activity masters, all men are bald, mistakes are lucky, and teachers can never spring suprise tests on their students! 

 The Elementary Mathematics Specialist's Handbook - Patricia Campbell, Aimee Ellington, William Haver, Vickie Inge

the elementary mathematics specialists handbook

The transition from classroom teacher to elementary mathematics specialist is challenging, but the principal can smooth specialist's path by reassuring teachers that the new specialist is there to support them, not judge them.  

Developing Essential Understanding of Statistics Grades 6-8

developing essential understanding of statistics 6-8This book focuses on essential knowledge for mathematics teachers about statistics. It is organized around five big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas-essential understandings. Taking you beyond a simple introduction to statistics, the book will boraden and deepen your understanding of one of the most challenging topics for studnets - and teachers. It will help you engage your students, anticiptae their perplexities, avoid pitfalls, and dispel misconceptions. You will also learn to develop appropriate tasks, techniques, and tools for assessing stundets' umderstading of the topic. 

Putting Essential understanding of Multiplication and Division into Practice 3-5

putting essential understanding of fractions into practiceThis book focuses on the specialised pedagogical content knowledge that you need to teach multiplication and division effectively in grades 3-5. The authors demonstrate how to use this multifaceted knowledge to address the big ideas and essential understandings that students must develop for success with these computations - not only in their current work, but also in higher-level mathematics and a myriad of real-world contexts.
Explore rich, research-based strategies and tasks that show how students are reasoning about and making sense of multiplication and division. Use the oppertunities that these and similar tasks provide to build on their own understanding while identifying and correcting misunderstandings that may be keeping them from taking the next steps in learning.

50The book is a collection of 50 original essays contributed by a wide variety of authors. It contains articles by some of the best expositors of the subject (du Sautoy, Singh and Stewart for example) together with entertaining biographical pieces and articles of relevance to our everyday lives (such as Spiegelhalter on risk and Elwes on medical imaging). 

Your First Years Teaching Secondary Mathematics - Success from the Start - Robert Wieman, Fran Arbaugh

success from the startThe Essential Guide to Navigating Your First Years of Teaching Secondary Mathematics
"Too much advcice for teachers is either to abstract to be useful or consists of cute ideas for tomorrow that offer no lasting support. Wieman and Arbaugh hit the coveted middle ground - practical ideas for teachers drawn from sound principles of learning and teachin. Because their focus is directly on middle and secondary school mathematics, thye have produced a rare practical guide for upper-grade teachers that is easily accessible and rewardingly substantive. Middle and high school math teachers who want to improve their teaching, with the Common Core State Standards in mind, cannot go wrong by reading this book, cover to cover." - James Hiebert University of Delaware
Based on classroom observations and interviews with seasoned and beginning teachers, Success from the Start: Your First Years Teaching Secondary Mathematics offers valuable suggestions to improve your teaching and your studnets oppertunities to learn.

All is Change: Of Motion: Ancient & Modern - J.F. Riley

All is changeThe subject of the Calculus seems a mystery to all but the most numerate of people, but J F Riley writes with a dry humour tat engages the general reader in an informed acquantance with its history.
The book describes the trials and tribulations that the topic of motion and therefore variability and change encountered from its beginnings in ancient Greece up to its discovery in the 17th century and the subsequent period of development. It is is a story behind the evolution of the 'algebra of change and shape' we call the Calculus, and about what it is, why we needed it and who made it happen.
