Twice five plus the wings of a bird by Simon Campbell-Jones( visu )
6 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 229 libraries worldwide
Many children seem to be programmed for mathematics from birth, possessors of an innate mathematical ability. Research by psychologists and educationalists in Britain and America is revealing how people acquire an understanding of numbers from a very early age. Unfortunately, the way they learn clashes badly with the way maths is taught in school. A three-year-old, for example, would find the abstract question: what does 1+2 = totally meaningless. But the same child would have no problem in recognizing that, if a box contains two bricks and another brick is added, it will then contain three bricks. Abstract maths is more difficult, especially when teaching methods promote a cycle of incomprehension, failure, boredom and hatred. In response, many maths educationalists are demanding a change in teaching methods: a new approach which would recognize that children are mathematical thinkers in their own right, that conventional maths is non-maths, and that a shift to looking at what is going on inside the person is necessary. Horizon talks to the experts - including Dr Martin Hughes at Exeter University and Dr Richard Skemp of Warwick University, who devises mathematical games for use in schools - and asks what can be done to improve the situation? Meanwhile, at an ordinary primary school in England, an extraordinary maths class is being held. Here children are encouraged to invent their own maths problems to solve, and creating puzzles and games which lead them into areas of maths which they have never explored before. Problems such as 'The days of May divided by the sides of a cube' hold the children's interest, whilst encouraging them to attempt the difficult concept of decimals. It seems that the approach of combining abstract maths and concrete realities does work. But are schools willing to embrace a new methods over the conventional ways of teaching maths?--Kanopy

Number theory, analysis and geometry : in memory of Serge Lang by D Goldfeld( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Serge Lang was an iconic figure in mathematics, both for his own important work and for the indelible impact he left on the field of mathematics, on his students, ¡and on his colleagues. Over the course of his career, Lang traversed a tremendous amount of mathematical ground. As he moved from subject to subject, he found analogies that led to important questions in such areas as number theory, arithmetic geometry and the theory of negatively curved spaces. Lang's conjectures will keep many mathematicians occupied far into the future. In the spirit of Lang{u2019}s vast contribution to mathematics, this memorial volume contains articles by prominent mathematicians in a variety of areas, namely number theory, analysis and geometry, representing Lang{u2019}s own breadth of interests.¡A special introduction by John Tate includes a brief and engaging account of Serge Lang{u2019}s life. Contributors to the volume: D. Abramovich A. Agashe D. Bertrand E. Brenner A. Buium G. Chinta A. Constantin J. Dodziuk M. van Frankenhuijsen W. Goldring B.H. Gross P.E. Gunnells P. Ingram J.
