In freewriting, we write continuously: we begin with a prompt and keep our pen or pencil moving throughout the entire duration. We do not stop to question or censor ourselves; we do not concern ourselves with spelling, punctuation, capitalization, or grammar; we do not allow critical thoughts. This practical book shows teachers how to use freewriting to help kids write well and more, regardless of grade level, subject, or time of day or year. It is a simple process to implement, and yet makes a significant difference in teacher attitudes, student confidence, and, ultimately, student writing abilities.

The imaginary unit i = √-1 has been used by mathematicians for nearly five-hundred years, during which time its physical meaning has been a constant challenge. Unfortunately, René Descartes referred to it as “imaginary”, and the use of the term “complex number” compounded the unnecessary mystery associated with this amazing object. Today, i = √-1 has found its way into virtually every branch of mathematics, and is widely employed in physics and science, from solving problems in electrical engineering to quantum field theory. John Vince describes the evolution of the imaginary unit from the roots of quadratic and cubic equations, Hamilton’s quaternions, Cayley’s octonions, to Grassmann’s geometric algebra. In spite of the aura of mystery that surrounds the subject, John Vince makes the subject accessible and very readable. The first two chapters cover the imaginary unit and its integration with real numbers. Chapter 3 describes how complex numbers work with matrices, and shows how to compute complex eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Chapters 4 and 5 cover Hamilton’s invention of quaternions, and Cayley’s development of octonions, respectively. Chapter 6 provides a brief introduction to geometric algebra, which possesses many of the imaginary qualities of quaternions, but works in space of any dimension. The second half of the book is devoted to applications of complex numbers, quaternions and geometric algebra. John Vince explains how complex numbers simplify trigonometric identities, wave combinations and phase differences in circuit analysis, and how geometric algebra resolves geometric problems, and quaternions rotate 3D vectors. There are two short chapters on the Riemann hypothesis and the Mandelbrot set, both of which use complex numbers. The last chapter references the role of complex numbers in quantum mechanics, and ends with Schrödinger’s famous wave equation. Filled with lots of clear examples and useful illustrations, this compact book provides an excellent introduction to imaginary mathematics for computer science.

Elementary Linear Algebra, 5th edition, by Stephen Andrilli and David Hecker, is a textbook for a beginning course in linear algebra for sophomore or junior mathematics majors. This text provides a solid introduction to both the computational and theoretical aspects of linear algebra. The textbook covers many important real-world applications of linear algebra, including graph theory, circuit theory, Markov chains, elementary coding theory, least-squares polynomials and least-squares solutions for inconsistent systems, differential equations, computer graphics and quadratic forms. Also, many computational techniques in linear algebra are presented, including iterative methods for solving linear systems, LDU Decomposition, the Power Method for finding eigenvalues, QR Decomposition, and Singular Value Decomposition and its usefulness in digital imaging. The most unique feature of the text is that students are nurtured in the art of creating mathematical proofs using linear algebra as the underlying context. The text contains a large number of worked out examples, as well as more than 970 exercises (with over 2600 total questions) to give students practice in both the computational aspects of the course and in developing their proof-writing abilities. Every section of the text ends with a series of true/false questions carefully designed to test the students’ understanding of the material. In addition, each of the first seven chapters concludes with a thorough set of review exercises and additional true/false questions. Supplements to the text include an Instructor’s Manual with answers to all of the exercises in the text, and a Student Solutions Manual with detailed answers to the starred exercises in the text. Finally, there are seven additional web sections available on the book’s website to instructors who adopt the text. Builds a foundation for math majors in reading and writing elementary mathematical proofs as part of their intellectual/professional development to assist in later math courses Presents each chapter as a self-contained and thoroughly explained modular unit. Provides clearly written and concisely explained ancillary materials, including four appendices expanding on the core concepts of elementary linear algebra Prepares students for future math courses by focusing on the conceptual and practical basics of proofs

Advanced Math for Young Students is a clear, thought-provoking introduction to algebra, written for middle school and high school students. Emphasizing functions, graphs and equations, it demonstrates how the language of algebra is used, drawing examples from physics, chemistry and economics. This is not a traditional "Algebra 1" book. It is designed to be used before (or during) your first algebra class, though it also introduces some concepts from Algebra 2 and Pre-calculus. It is organized in three units: Unit 1 introduces functions and their charts, graphs and equations. You will also learn about composition of functions and inverse functions. Unit 2 shows how algebra is used to solve puzzles involving a "mystery number." Here, you learn to write and solve equations to find the answers to those dreaded "word problems." We will investigate equations with two variables, linear functions, and systems of equations, applying these to word problems as well. Unit 3 is about relationships. We start with direct proportions and continue onward, culminating with an examination of exponential functions and logarithms. Throughout this unit, the emphasis is on how these relationships are expressed algebraically and graphically and how they are actually applied. While some of the relationships will be demonstrated with examples from physics and chemistry, no prior knowledge of those topics is assumed. But you will certainly pick up a few ideas about those subjects as well.

Mathematics discusses the fundamentals of four common branches of Mathematics: Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. This book contains a number of special features, wherein the rest of the text is fully metricated in accordance with the recommended International System of Units (S.I.), which is the modern form of the metric system. The discussion of logarithms and trigonometry is very straightforward and involves none of the usual mystery associated with these topics. The last two chapters offer an entertaining initiation into the Theory of Probability, a subject of increasing importance and endless fascination. This text also includes tables, among which are the Decimal Equivalents of Sixty-Fourths; Measures, Money, Simple, and Compound Interest; Squares and Square Roots, Cubes and Cube Roots; and Common Logarithms, Sine, Tangent, Secant to 4-figures. The care in presentation and detail of discussion makes this book invaluable as basic groundwork for all mathematical study, possibly as a companion reader to one of the recognized courses such as GCSE or comparable examinations. This book is also readably enjoyable for anyone working independently, whether seeking to recapture forgotten knowledge or studying Mathematics for the first time.

The first edition of this book presented the theory of linear algebraic groups over an algebraically closed field. The second edition, thoroughly revised and expanded, extends the theory over arbitrary fields, which are not necessarily algebraically closed. It thus represents a higher aim. As in the first edition, the book includes a self-contained treatment of the prerequisites from algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, as well as basic results on reductive groups. As a result, the first part of the book can well serve as a text for an introductory graduate course on linear algebraic groups.

In this important and original monograph, useful for both academic and professional researchers and students of mathematics and physics, the author describes his work on the Riemann zeta function and its adelic interpretation. It provides an original point of view, bringing new, highly useful dictionaries between different fields of mathematics. It develops an arithmetical approach to the continuum of real numbers and unifies many areas of mathematics including: Markov Chains, q-series, Elliptic curves, the Heisenberg group, quantum groups, and special functions (such as the Gamma, Beta, Zeta, theta, Bessel functions, the Askey-Wilson and the classical orthagonal polynomials) The text discusses real numbers from a p-adic point of view, first mooted by Araeklov. It includes original work on coherent theory, with implications for number theory and uses ideas from probability theory including Markov chains and noncommutative geometry which unifies the p-adic theory and the real theory by constructing a theory of quantum orthagonal polynomials.
