Every topic reflects the incomparable excitement, beauty, and joy of mathematics; they present a wealth of ingenious insights and marvelous ideas at the fundamental level. The chapters are independent and can be read in any order. Everyone who enjoys elementary mathematics will truly delight in the following gems: . Pythagorean Triples via Geometry . New proofs of Generalizations of the Theorems of Ptolemy and Simson . Mind Reading Tricks, Ladder Lotteries, Mazes, Lattice Points, Round Robin Competitions, An Elementary Fixed Point Theorems and More . Simple proofs of the lovely Theorems of Pick and of Jung . The Constructibility of a Regular 17-gon . Open Problems on Egyptian Fractions and on Primes Moreover, the reader is gently encouraged to participate actively by responding to a line of questions that are thoughtfully sprinkled throughout the developments of the expositions.

The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets

Buffett's picture in the 1947 Woodrow Wilson High School senior yearbook has
the astute cap- tion “Likes math; future stockbroker.” Buffett is known to be a fan of
nontransitive phenomena and some- times challenges people to a game of dice.

At last, here is a book that reveals what the public really wants to know about this legendary investor: how he determines where he puts his money. From a team with privileged insight, Mary Buffett, a savvy CEO and Warren Buffett's former daughter-in-law, and David Clarke, a successful portfolio analyst, comes BUFFETTOLOGY, the most detailed explanation ever of the billionaire's unique investment techniques. Using Warren Buffett's system to access a company's potential economic excellence and the right price to pay for its stock, BUFFETTOLOGY demonstrates the actual mathematical models and equations, revolving around three variables: the yearly per share earnings figure, its predictability, and the market price of security. With BUFFETTOLOGY, individual investors will come to truly understand, and emulate, Warren Buffett's masterful insight, and see that investment is most intelligent when it is most businesslike.

Schwartz Powerful Ideas in Elementary Mathematics: Pedagogical Content Knowledge for Teachers, 1/e ISBN: 0205493750 "This book would be a great tool for helping [today's future elementary teachers] acquire a 'gut level' understanding of mathematics concepts." - Hester Lewellen, Baldwin-Wallace College, OH "The writing in this text is very clear and would easily be understood by the intended audience. The real-world examples put the various math concepts into a context that is easily understood. The vignettes at the beginning of each chapter are interesting and they get the reader to begin thinking about the math concepts that will follow. Each of the chapters seem to build on one another and the author often refers back to activities and concepts from previous chapters which is meaningful to the reader because it lets the reader know that the information they are learning builds their conceptual understanding of other mathematical concepts. " - Melany L. Rish, University of South Carolina, Aiken Organized around five key concepts or "powerful ideas" in mathematics, this text presents elementary mathematics content in a concise and nonthreatening manner for teachers. Designed to sharpen teachers' mathematics pedagogical content knowledge, the friendly writing style and vignettes relate math concepts to "real life" situations so that they may better present the content to their students. The five "powerful ideas" (composition, decomposition, relationships, representation, and context) provide an organizing framework and highlight the interconnections between mathematics topics. In addition, the text thoroughly integrates discussion of the five NCTM process strands. Features: Icons highlighting the NCTM process standards appear throughout the book to indicate where the text relates to each of these. Practice exercises and activities and their explanations reinforce math concepts presented in the text and provide an opportunity for reflection and practice. Concise, conversational chapters and opening vignettes present math contents simply enough for even the most math-anxious pre-service teachers.
