A must read for teachers of mathematics! The perrennial question, "When will I ever use this stuff," prompts a parent to look deeply into his son's math program. In his search for the scope and meaning of "stuff," he finds that the subject of math is totally unlike any other high school subject. Also apparent is that promoted reforms whether politically motivated, profit driven, or theoretically rooted in educational psychology, good or bad, generally have a poor long term success rate. The semi-fictional, often-humorous style of "Math Stuff" provides a multi-dimensional view of the diverse elements of reform that, to be effective, must be jointly addressed. Taking a cue from a good math teacher, the book does not give the answers but rather suggests what to think about while determining them.

Mary originally created the Math Drawings to capture the imaginations of reluctant learners. It was a way to present an opportunity for those students -- who never seceded at anything academic -- to finally succeed at something. Since Mary believes that success builds on success, she surmised that this success could be the catalyst that ignites those students’ passion for the course. Going into to this project, she knew students loved to draw because she had been confiscating surreptitious art work -- created at inappropriate times in class -- for years. So, Math Drawings seemed to be a natural step boost enthusiasm for the course. The very first lesson, “Tin Cans,” proved her right. It was a smashing success. Quickly word spread until, all her students wanted to work with her Math Drawings. Soon Mary was forced to add a more advanced supplement to each drawing,-- which she called “Differentiation,”-- to challenge the older or more accomplished students. This latest edition of the book contains five drawings with their respective differentiations. The titles are, “Tin Cans,” “City by the Sea,” “Roman Arches,” “Country Road,” and the latest addition , “Eagle,” taken with permission from the work of artist, Marilyn Grame. Each drawing is created in as many as 30 illustrated steps, with the most current line in each step highlighted. Also, the caption for each illustrated step is laced with the vocabulary that forms the math lesson.

Doing Math with Python shows you how to use Python to delve into high school–level math topics like statistics, geometry, probability, and calculus. You’ll start with simple projects, like a factoring program and a quadratic-equation solver, and then create more complex projects once you’ve gotten the hang of things. Along the way, you’ll discover new ways to explore math and gain valuable programming skills that you’ll use throughout your study of math and computer science. Learn how to: -Describe your data with statistics, and visualize it with line graphs, bar charts, and scatter plots -Explore set theory and probability with programs for coin flips, dicing, and other games of chance -Solve algebra problems using Python’s symbolic math functions -Draw geometric shapes and explore fractals like the Barnsley fern, the Sierpinski triangle, and the Mandelbrot set -Write programs to find derivatives and integrate functions Creative coding challenges and applied examples help you see how you can put your new math and coding skills into practice. You’ll write an inequality solver, plot gravity’s effect on how far a bullet will travel, shuffle a deck of cards, estimate the area of a circle by throwing 100,000 “darts” at a board, explore the relationship between the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio, and more. Whether you’re interested in math but have yet to dip into programming or you’re a teacher looking to bring programming into the classroom, you’ll find that Python makes programming easy and practical. Let Python handle the grunt work while you focus on the math.

Wouldn’t it be great to experience three-dimensional ideas in three dimensions? In this book—the first of its kind—mathematician and mathematical artist Henry Segerman takes readers on a fascinating tour of two-, three-, and four-dimensional mathematics, exploring Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, symmetry, knots, tilings, and soap films. Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing includes more than 100 color photographs of 3D printed models. Readers can take the book’s insights to a new level by visiting its sister website,, which features virtual three-dimensional versions of the models for readers to explore. These models can also be ordered online or downloaded to print on a 3D printer. Combining the strengths of book and website, this volume pulls higher geometry and topology out of the realm of the abstract and puts it into the hands of anyone fascinated by mathematical relationships of shape. With the book in one hand and a 3D printed model in the other, readers can find deeper meaning while holding a hyperbolic honeycomb, touching the twists of a torus knot, or caressing the curves of a Klein quartic. -- Carlo H. Séquin

This book is written primarily in an authentic dialogue style. It fearlessly describes the consequences of the failure to appropriately prepare a student to become an inner-city teacher. While doing so, the book also exposes a system that has been slammed to the ground by policies, practices, and court decisions that protect the rights of everyone except those who teach and those who desire to learn, but leave these dedicated individuals constantly vulnerable to the violence, anger, hostility, and hopelessness that seem to be a hallmark of so many of our inner-city schools. As this young teacher closes the classroom door and stands alone, a stark picture emerges, a picture that, for the reader, will provoke anger, occasional outrage, and most certainly controversy. At the heart of this story, the author reconstructs, sometimes minute-by-minute, the events and interactions that combine to compel him to leave this first teaching assignment abruptly with a profound sense of confusion, self-doubt, and betrayal. Not limited to the classroom, this tale includes interludes that are informative, occasionally humorous, and sometimes amazingly frank. But what becomes obvious is that the recounting of this experience reveals an open wound and is a plea to the reader to recognize deep pain and justifiable anger. In so doing, it reflects the same quandary and frustrations that continue to be felt by millions of teachers and other educators who are frequently and severely criticized by those who simply do not understand why students and educators trapped in this environment so frequently fail to thrive and succeed and finally choose to leave.
