Mathematical connections : a companion for teachers and others by Albert Cuoco( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 276 libraries worldwide
This book is about some of the topics that form the foundations for high school mathematics. It focuses on a closely-knit collection of ideas that are at the intersection of algebra, arithmetic, combinatorics, geometry, and calculus. Most of the ideas are classical: methods for fitting polynomial functions to data, for summing powers of integers, for visualizing the iterates of a function defined on the complex plane, or for obtaining identities among entries in Pascal's triangle. Some of these ideas, previously considered quite advanced, have become tractable because of advances in computational technology. Others are just beautiful classical mathematics, topics that have fallen out of fashion and that deserve to be resurrected. Most importantly, the book is about some mathematical ways of thinking the author found extremely useful, both in his roles as a mathematician and as a mentor of young people learning to do mathematics.--Publisher description

Sustainability : building program and coalition support by Peggy Glider( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Given the prevalence of alcohol and other drug abuse and violence on campuses and in communities, programs and coalitions developed to prevent or intervene in these problems are faced with a challenging and long-term task. While the development of coalitions or campus-based prevention programs is a healthy start, these efforts must be sustained over time to have a truly lasting effect. Sustainability can seem a daunting task in the midst of implementing programs or mobilizing a coalition; however, by incorporating sustainability into all aspects of prevention efforts (assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation), it becomes an achievable goal. This emphasis on sustainability will actually strengthen prevention efforts from the beginning. This publication is organized into two basic sections. The first emphasizes the need to include sustainability in assessment, planning, and evaluation. The final section focuses on mechanisms for developing and promoting sustainable programs and coalitions. Each aspect plays a role in overall sustainability. This paper presents suggestions for program and coalition sustainability that have been synthesized from publications, Web sites, and personal experiences shared by colleagues across the country.

Strategic planning for prevention professionals on campus by Linda Langford( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The nation's institutions of higher education continue to face serious problems with respect to student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv). For campus administrators, deciding how to respond effectively means understanding and taking into account both the complexity of these social problems and the individuality of each campus community. There can be no simple answer: Complicated problems require a comprehensive and integrated response, and crafting such a response requires a systematic planning and evaluation process. To support campus leaders addressing aodv problems among their students, this publication describes a strategic planning process for designing, implementing, and refining aodv programs and policies. The planning process described herein is grounded in a prevention approach called "environmental management", which focuses on addressing various factors in the environment that contribute to AODV-related problems. This is not a detailed manual, but a basic introduction to the elements and purposes of sound intervention planning, consistent with the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for prevention programs. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 9 resources.)

Problem analysis the first step in prevention planning by William DeJong( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv) still reign as the most serious social problems faced by U.S. institutions of higher education. To tackle these problems, campus administrators--working in conjunction with partners from the surrounding community--need to put in place an integrated set of strategies that address the mix of individual, group, institutional, community, and societal factors that lead to student substance abuse and violence. This type of comprehensive approach--called environmental management--cannot be implemented without using a systematic planning and evaluation process. This publication outlines the first step of that process: "problem analysis." This step, often referred to as "needs assessment," is an essential feature of the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for aodv prevention programs. Conducting a problem analysis involves: (1) gathering objective data on the nature and scope of the problem at both national and local levels; (2) examining available resources and assets in the campus community; and (3) analyzing and summarizing this information to clarify needs and opportunities. Note that the process outlined here is suitable for both two- and four-year institutions, including both residential and commuter campuses. (Contains 1 table and 3 resources.)
