Book Description :

The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn" Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life. In A Mind for Numbers, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively—secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they’d known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there’s only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions—you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think.

Book Description :

Are you facing classes in math and science this semester? Will you have to interpret data from graphs and charts in your job? Would you like to be a better gambler? Or sharpen your money skills? No longer will you need to tell yourself that you are "not good with figures" once you've Read Winston J. Duncan's book A Mind for Numbers; How to Exercise Your Brain To Think Like a Scientist. Many of us struggled our way through math and science classes in school and were relieved once the semester was over. Duncan recognizes this and begins his book with what scientific thinking actually is: thinking strategically, or methodically. A Mind for Numbers states a true but little known fact: that scientific thinkers' minds actually grow stronger over their lifespans, as the mind of a non-scientific thinker grows weaker during the same time span. This is because scientists and their peers are constantly focused on solving problems and developing and honing theories to explain phenomema: they are constantly exercising their brains! Duncan's exercise's will improve our brains' speed, accuracy, focus and clarity, regardless of our ages or previous mental activity level. If you feel like you're suffering from a foggy mindset lately, this could be the cure! A Mind for Numbers asks us to recall the processes we were to apply in school to mathematical and scientific questions. It's this process-oriented thinking that enables scientists and mathematicians to organize their thoughts. Duncan then outlines a detailed but easily adaptable plan for process-based thinking that readers can apply to any problem in their own lives, highlighting the purpose of each step for clarification. The next phase of A Mind for Numbers deals with observational thinking, or retaining lots of different pieces of data about something we've experienced. Observational thinking is important not only for scientists and mathematicians, but also law enforcement officials and those in medicine. Duncan takes readers past the basic senses and shows us the depth of a scientists observational prowess, displaying the level of detail we should work towards operating. The reader sees how all of these sometimes minute pieces of data give him an edge in solving his problem or making a prediction. Then we arrive at the educational guess, or hypothesis used in scientific thinking. Duncan shows readers how to easily formulate a hypothesis and test it to see how close our assertion is. Duncan prepares us for repetition of this process, just as scientists themselves repeat it, sometimes often, in order to get to a solution. This version of A Mind for Numbers includes a bonus chapter on making solid predictions about just about anything. DUncan shows us how to incorporate all of the steps of the scientific method of thinking into the prediction-making process. Here, the observation of experience is especially important, and Duncan explains why. DUncan also includes brainstorming methods that can bring with them breakthrough ideas - perfect for someone looking to make their mark in science, engineering, writing and business! ***Limited Edition***

Book Description :

Mental math is a skill people practice on a daily basis, often subconsciously, which involves doing calculations in your head. In mental math, you don't have to write down elaborate details concerning the variables involved. Children are usually encouraged to learn mental math skills early in school, because being good at mental calculations can make a person successful in many other fields. Please note that even if being good at mental math does not necessarily signify high intelligence, people usually think it does, and that perception can help you obtain opportunities for advanced study or career development. Mental math proficiency is not just good for academic pursuits but also helps make life easier overall. This book dives deep into the mechanics of mental math and provides examples that will help the reader build mental math proficiency quickly.

Book Description :

For a long time, all thought there was only one geometry — Euclidean geometry. Nevertheless, in the 19th century, many non-Euclidean geometries were discovered. It took almost two millennia to do this. This was the major mathematical discovery and advancement of the 19th century, which changed understanding of mathematics and the work of mathematicians providing innovative insights and tools for mathematical research and applications of mathematics.A similar event happened in arithmetic in the 20th century. Even longer than with geometry, all thought there was only one conventional arithmetic of natural numbers — the Diophantine arithmetic, in which 2+2=4 and 1+1=2. It is natural to call the conventional arithmetic by the name Diophantine arithmetic due to the important contributions to arithmetic by Diophantus. Nevertheless, in the 20th century, many non-Diophantine arithmetics were discovered, in some of which 2+2=5 or 1+1=3. It took more than two millennia to do this. This discovery has even more implications than the discovery of new geometries because all people use arithmetic.This book provides a detailed exposition of the theory of non-Diophantine arithmetics and its various applications. Reading this book, the reader will see that on the one hand, non-Diophantine arithmetics continue the ancient tradition of operating with numbers while on the other hand, they introduce extremely original and innovative ideas.

Book Description :

College students struggle with the switch from thinking of mathematics as a calculation based subject to a problem solving based subject. This book describes how the introduction to proofs course can be taught in a way that gently introduces students to this new way of thinking. This introduction utilizes recent research in neuroscience regarding how the brain learns best. Rather than jumping right into proofs, students are first taught how to change their mindset about learning, how to persevere through difficult problems, how to work successfully in a group, and how to reflect on their learning. With these tools in place, students then learn logic and problem solving as a further foundation.Next various proof techniques such as direct proofs, proof by contraposition, proof by contradiction, and mathematical induction are introduced. These proof techniques are introduced using the context of number theory. The last chapter uses Calculus as a way for students to apply the proof techniques they have learned.
