stock image, actual book may vary Over three hundred years ago, a French scholar scribbled a simple theorem in the margin of a book. It would become the world's most baffling mathematical mystery. Simple, elegant, and utterly impossible to prove, Fermat's Last Theorem captured the imaginations of amateur and professional mathematicians for over three centuries. For some it became a wonderful passion. For others it was an obsession that led to deceit, intrigue, or insanity. In a volume filled with the clues, red herrings, and suspense of a mystery novel, Dr. Amir Aczel reveals the previously untold story of the people, the history, and the cultures that lie behind this scientific triumph. From formulas devised for the farmers of ancient Babylonia to the dramatic proof of Fermat's theorem in 1993, this extraordinary work takes us along on an exhilarating intellectual treasure hunt. Revealing the hidden mathematical order of the natural world in everything from stars to sunflowers, Fermat's Last Theorem brilliantly combines philosophy and hard science with investigative journalism. The result: a reallife detective story of the intellect, at once intriguing, thoughtprovoking, and impossible to put down.

stock image, actual book may vary In the late 19th century, a brilliant mathematician languished in an asylum. His greatest accomplishment, the result of a series of leaps of insight, was his pioneering understanding of the nature of infinity. This is the story of Georg Cantor: how he came to his theories and the reverberations of his work, the consequences of which shape our world. Cantor's theory of the infinite is famous for its many seeming contradictions: for example, we can prove there are as many points on a line one inch long as on a line one mile long; we can also prove that in all time there are as many years as there are days. According to Cantor, infinite sets are equal. The mindtwisting, deeply philosophical work of Cantor has its roots in ancient Greek mathematics and Jewish numerology as found in the mystical work known as the Kabbalah. Cantor used the term alephthe first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, with all its attendant divine associationsto refer to the mysterious number which is the sum of positive integers. It is not the last positive number, because . . . there is no last. It is the ultimate number that is always being approached: just as, for example, there is no last fraction before the number 1.

stock image, actual book may vary Becoming a Reflective Mathematics Teacher: A Guide for Observations and SelfAssessment offers what every mathematics teacher educator or supervisor has been looking for. Ideally suited for use with students who are taking a methods course or who are student teaching, this activityoriented, researchbased text: supplies detailed observation instruments that preservice teachers can use when they observe other teachers. Each instrument focuses on a critical aspect of instructional practice in mathematics e.g., tasks, learning environment, discourse . In addition, it requires the observer to make conjectures regarding the teachers' underlying cognitions e.g., knowledge, beliefs, goals that might account for the instructional practice they observe. offers reflective activities that provide a structure through which beginning teachers can think about their teaching in an insightful, thorough, and productive manner. Students can work through the activities over the period of a year. The structured observations and reflective activities are modular, and the framework applies to all observations of teaching, no matter what the instructional content. includes guidelines and instruments for supervisors to use when observing, conferencing with, and assessing beginning or student teachers. The unique aspect of these guidelines and instruments is the link they make between teachers' cognitions and their instructional practice. All instruments and suggested activities are couched within a highly effective framework for teacher reflection and selfassessment that was developed in the spirit of the NCTM professional teaching standards. This framework is grounded in a cognitive perspective on learnercentered teaching. In Part I, the framework is explained and its validity is documented. Part II shows how teachers can use the framework to observe other teachers' classroom work, and to reflect on their own teaching. Part III offers case studies to help readers see how the method works.

stock image, actual book may vary Richard Feynman once quipped that "Time is what happens when nothing else does." But Julian Barbour disagrees: if nothing happened, if nothing changed, then time would stop. For time is nothing but change. It is change that we perceive occurring all around us, not time. Put simply, time does not exist. In this highly provocative volume, Barbour presents the basic evidence for a timeless universe, and shows why we still experience the world as intensely temporal. It is a book that strikes at the heart of modern physics. It casts doubt on Einstein's greatest contribution, the spacetime continuum, but also points to the solution of one of the great paradoxes of modern science, the chasm between classical and quantum physics. Indeed, Barbour argues that the holy grail of physiciststhe unification of Einstein's general relativity with quantum mechanicsmay well spell the end of time. Barbour writes with remarkable clarity as he ranges from the ancient philosophers Heraclitus and Parmenides, through the giants of science Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, to the work of the contemporary physicists John Wheeler, Roger Penrose, and Steven Hawking. Along the way he treats us to enticing glimpses of some of the mysteries of the universe, and presents intriguing ideas about multiple worlds, time travel, immortality, and, above all, the illusion of motion. The End of Time is a vibrantly written and revolutionary book. It turns our understanding of reality insideout.
