Learning And Teaching Early Math from the Author: Douglas H. Clements. In this important book for pre- and in-service teachers, early math experts Douglas Clements and Julie Sarama show how "learning trajectories" help diagnose a child’s level of mathematical understanding and provide guidance for teaching. By focusing on the inherent delight and curiosity behind young children’s mathematical reasoning, learning trajectories ultimately make teaching more joyous. They help teachers understand the varying levels of knowledge exhibited by individual students, which in turn allows them to better meet the learning needs of all children. Using straightforward, no-nonsense language, this book summarizes the current research about how children learn mathematics, and how to build on what children already know to realize more effective teaching. This second edition of Learning and Teaching Early Math remains the definitive, research-based resource to help teachers understand the learning trajectories of early mathematics and become quintessential professionals. Updates to the new edition include: • Explicit connections between Learning Trajectories and the new Common Core State Standards. • New coverage of patterns and patterning. • A companion website featuring student support materials such as a glossary of technical terms and pedagogical activities. • Incorporation of hundreds of recent research studies.

X Ray Vision from the Author: Nikola Tesla. Nikola Tesla is best known for his work with electricity, but he was also interested in Roentgen rays, better known today as X-rays. Collected here are his eight essays on Roentgen rays. Fascinating stuff from one of history's sharpest minds. Nikola Tesla has been called the most important man of the 20th Century. Without Tesla's ground-breaking work we'd all be sitting in the dark without even a radio to listen to.

X Ray Vision from the Author: Richard M. Swiderski. X-ray vision at first was the revival of the phantasmagoria and ground-penetrating sight of earlier centuries attached to the new technology of X-rays in the early twentieth century. The image-idea of the existence of rays that allow prepared eyes to see into clothing, through walls and into the earth, not feasible in fact, generated fictions and surrogates of how living beings would experience such an ability, what they would do with it and what it would do to them. Expressing both a need and a desire, X-ray vision underwent its own development gathering elements of play, inquiry and assault independent of X-ray technology but converging with microscopy, telescopy, television and surveillance.

Computer Vision For X Ray Testing from the Author: Domingo Mery. This accessible textbook presents an introduction to computer vision algorithms for industrially-relevant applications of X-ray testing. Features: introduces the mathematical background for monocular and multiple view geometry; describes the main techniques for image processing used in X-ray testing; presents a range of different representations for X-ray images, explaining how these enable new features to be extracted from the original image; examines a range of known X-ray image classifiers and classification strategies; discusses some basic concepts for the simulation of X-ray images and presents simple geometric and imaging models that can be used in the simulation; reviews a variety of applications for X-ray testing, from industrial inspection and baggage screening to the quality control of natural products; provides supporting material at an associated website, including a database of X-ray images and a Matlab toolbox for use with the book’s many examples.

The Vision Revolution from the Author: Mark Changizi. Why do human beings have binocular vision? Why do they see colour the way they do? Why do optical illusions work? And why are people able to absorb information by reading, a relatively new development from an evolutionary perspective, more readily than by hearing, which has evolved over hundreds of thousands of years? Evolutionary scientist and neurobiologist Mark Changizi answers these questions and more in The Vision Revolution, shattering previous scientific beliefs and giving readers a radically new perspective on the history and function of human vision.
