Essential Statistics, Regression, and Econometrics - Gary Smith

essential statistics

Essential Statistics, Regression, and Econometrics aims to help students in an introductory statistics course develop the statistical reasoning they need for econometric. Many students mistakenly believe that statistics courses are too abstract, mathematical, and tedious to be useful or interesting. To demonstrate the power, elegance, and even beauty of statistical reasoning, this textbook provides hundreds of interesting and relevant examples, and discusses not only the uses but also the abuses of statistics. these examples show how statistical reasoning can be used to answer important questions and also to expose the errors-accidental or intentional-that people often make.

The Elephant in the Classroom Helping Children Learn and Love Maths - Jo Boaler

The elephant in the Classroom"Help Children to learn to love the subject...Make mathematics more the mathematics that people need out there in the world" BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour
Why do millions struggle with mathematics and what can teachers do to change that?
Jo Boaler has followed the progress of thousands of pupils in two countries ( the UK adn USA), monitoring how they learn maths through their school carers and then following them into adult life. This remarkable research is the foundation of her investigations into the impact that differing maths experiences can have on an enitre generation. Jo Boaler outlines what has gone wrong, identifying the problems facing children in mathematics classrooms today and offers concrete solutions for parents and teachers that will revolutionise children's experiences with maths.
"A very interesting book which addresses some common problems found in the maths classroom which have been well researched adn provides positive solutions and practical activities for those interested in trying to encourage students of today to become mathematicians of tomorrow" Times Educational Supplement Online
The Elephant in the classroom offers concrete suggestions on ways to teach maths well, and ways to help children in the home, that will offer new and more effective ways of learning maths. This is an exciting way forward, a new approach that teaches children to reason and problem solve; helping all children, even those who think that they are maths failures and that they could never enjoy maths. An indispensable guide and resource for parents, teachers and educationalists, that inspires and enthuses as much as it teaches.

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.

Number Talk - Ann Marie Casserly, Pamela Moffett, Bairbre Tiernan 

Number TalkThe development of children's language and their mathematical understanding takes place from the earliest years. Research evidence suggests that teacher-facilitated 'mathematical talk' in the early years has the potential to stimulate growth in children's understanding of mathematics. It is argued that acquiring the language of mathematics is important to the acquisition of mathematical concepts and to the use and application of mathematics in a variety of situations.
