Word problems are the most difficult part of any math course –- and the most important to both the SATs and other standardized tests. This book teaches proven methods for analyzing and solving any type of math word problem.
In every area of mathematics, you will encounter ‘‘word’’ problems. Some
students are very good at solving word problems while others are not. When
teaching word problems in prealgebra and algebra, I often hear ‘‘I don’t
know where to begin,’’ or ‘‘I have never been able to solve word problems.’’
A great deal has been written about solving word problems. A Hungarian
mathematician, George Polya, did much in the area of problem solving.
His book, entitled How To Solve It, has been translated into at least 17 languages,
and it explains the basic steps of problem solving. These steps are
Debugging by Thinking : A Multidisciplinary Approach (HP Technologies)
Debugging by Thinking: A Multidisciplinary Approach uses the methods of literary detectives such as Sherlock Holmes, the techniques of mathematical problem solving, the results of research into the cognitive psychology of human error, the root cause analyses of safety experts, the compiler analyses of computer science, and the...
In April 2005, Linus Torvalds published the very first version of Git, the distributed version control system that is the topic of this book, and started managing the Linux kernel project with it.
Countless online pages have been written about Git by third parties since then, but many of them are unfortunately...
Communicating Process Architectures 2005 (Concurrent Systems Engineering Series) The awareness of the ideas characterized by Communicating Processes Architecture and their adoption by industry beyond their traditional base in safety-critical systems and security is growing. The complexity of modern computing systems has become so great that no one person – maybe not even a small team – can understand all aspects and...
Ubuntu Server Administration (Network Professional's Library) The market for Linux servers has been growing steadily over the past decade. Based on server revenues, in the year 2000, the market for Linux servers was around US $1.5 billion. In 2007, International Data Corporation (IDC) confirmed that the market for Linux servers was US $21 billion.
IDC projects that the Linux server market will grow...
