              This book series will provide readers with the landscape of mathematics teaching practices in Singapore classroom. In this first book of the series, Theory-Informed Practices, the book will have a collection of teachers' classroom practices that are informed by theory. It will pr...ovide classroom exemplars of how teachers make use of theories to inform their practices to better cater to the needs of the learners. This book which targets at the practitioners is written in a way that help the practitioners to be better in consuming and applying such efforts in the own classrooms. It provides the interested readers not only the landscape but also the spectrum of pedagogical approaches and strategies that are theoretically informed and adopted by the Singapore mathematics teachers. This book is written by expert teachers for teachers. It will also be of interest to graduate students, mathematics educators and the international mathematics education community who are looking for greater insights to the Singapore mathematics classrooms.

              How The Universe Works: Introduction To Modern Cosmology
               

              How The Universe Works: Introduction To Modern Cosmology (Hardback)

              By Parnowski, Aleksei S.; Parnovsky, Serge L.

              This book is about the history and the current state of the art in the exciting field of cosmology -- the science about the Universe as a whole, which is guaranteed to attract the attention of a wide range of readers. It mostly aims to explain the main ideas of modern cosmology: ...the expanding Universe, its creation in a Big Bang, its evolution, characteristics, and structure, as well as issues -- dark matter and dark energy, black holes and other exotic objects etc. It also answers most frequently asked questions about cosmology. How the Universe Works stands between a popular science book and a textbook, acting as a sort of a bridge across the great chasm separating popular science from true science. It can be also used as an introductory textbook for undergraduate students. It is also suitable for the non-experts in cosmology who wish to have an overview of the current state of the field. It is different from most popular science books because it avoids cutting corners in explanations and contains justification for various assumptions or estimations made in cosmology. It does not hide problems faced by modern cosmology as well as issues the community has no consensus about. It also does not try to pass hypotheses for established theories, which is not uncommon in scholarly articles.

              Algebraic Surfaces In Positive Characteristics: Purely Inseparable Phenomena In Curves And Surfaces
               

              Algebraic Surfaces In Positive Characteristics: Purely Inseparable Phenomena In Curves And Surfaces (Hardback)

              Customarily, the framework of algebraic geometry has been worked over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero, say, over the complex number field. However, over a field of positive characteristics, many unpredictable phenomena arise where analyses will lead to furthe...r developments.In the present book, we consider first the forms of the affine line or the additive group, classification of such forms and detailed analysis. The forms of the affine line considered over the function field of an algebraic curve define the algebraic surfaces with fibrations by curves with moving singularities. These fibrations are investigated via the Mordell-Weil groups, which are originally introduced for elliptic fibrations.This is the first book which explains the phenomena arising from purely inseparable coverings and Artin-Schreier coverings. In most cases, the base surfaces are rational, hence the covering surfaces are unirational. There exists a vast, unexplored world of unirational surfaces. In this book, we explain the Frobenius sandwiches as examples of unirational surfaces.Rational double points in positive characteristics are treated in detail with concrete computations. These kinds of computations are not found in current literature. Readers, by following the computations line after line, will not only understand the peculiar phenomena in positive characterisitcs, but also understand what are crucial in computations. This type of experience will lead to finding of unsolved problems by the readers themselves.

              Have you ever wondered how Einstein, a regular man, can come up with radical ideas that shape the world to be what it is today?Albert Einstein is a familiar name to many in the scientific and non-scientific community due to his revolutionary ideas such as the Theory of Relativity..., Special Relativity and significant contributions to the development of Quantum Mechanics. As such, many aspire to be like him and wonder how they can do that. The author believes that one needs to condition his/her mind to be able to think like the world-renowned Mathematical Physicist, Albert Einstein. The road to being successful can be challenging and it requires grit, confidence and guidance from the right people. Hence, this book is as a must-have guide to readers who wish to be one of the best scientists in the world!

              The autobiography of Martin Karplus, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2013, describes the journey from his childhood in Vienna, his escape to Switzerland in 1938 shortly after Hitler's entrance into Austria, his education in New England and California, and scientific career which took h...im to England, Illinois, Columbia, Strasbourg, and Harvard. The author's optimistic outlook and faith in himself made it possible for him to overcome difficulties in his research and to develop methods in several different fields of science that asked questions to teach him and others something not known before. Paralleling his efforts in science, Martin Karplus enjoyed a life-long interest in cooking, working at some of the best restaurants in France and Spain, and in photography, holding numerous exhibitions of his work around the world.

              This vivid book is an inquiry into the stagnation between the development of architectural practice and the progress in urban modernization. It is about islands as territories of resistance. It is about dense places where multitudes dwell in perennial contestations with the city ...on every front. It is about the histories, tactics and spaces of everyday survival within the hegemonic sway of global capital and unstoppable development. It is preoccupied with making visible the culture of resistance and architecture's entanglement with it. It is about urban resilience. It is about Hong Kong, where uncertainty is status quo.This interdisciplinary volume explores real and invented places and identities that are created in tandem with Hong Kong's urban development. Mapping contested spaces in the territory, it visualizes the energies and tenacity of the people as manifest in their daily life, social and professional networks and the urban spaces in which they inhabit. Embodying the multifaceted nature of the Asian metropolis, the book utilizes a combination of archival materials, public data sources, field observations and documentation, analytical drawings, models, and maps.
