The Ambitious Horse - Ancient Chinese Mathematics Problems

Lawrence Swienciki

Key Curriculum | 2000 | 135 páginas | pdf | 7,94 Mb


pdf (OCR) - 5,72 Mb - link
  • Numbers and Arithmetic includes subjects such as Chinese writing; The Calculating Rods of Ancient China: and ancient Chinese multiplication.
  • Geometry and Dissection problems includes subjects such as tangrams, the Measure of Heaven and Ancient Chinese Philosophy.
  • Algebra Integrated with Geometry includes subjects such as Square Roots; Quadratic Equations; and mathematical treats such as the "Pillar of Delightful Contemplation", the "Exalted Treasure of Jade" and the "Precious Golden Rope".
On the one hand this book is far beyond what many 7th and 8th grader students are capable of. On the other hand, it is so interesting and so well done that it might just be that this is the book that helps transforms your child from a grudging math student to an enthusiastic one!
Filled with stories, puzzles and plenty of hands-on problems, this book is a treasure. It is divided into three sections:
Answers and solutions included.
Note: The problems get more difficult as the book progresses and so can be used for several years. Suitable for a very math-able 7th grader, a solid 8th grader and to enthuse and inspire high school students

Tricks, Games, and Puzzles With Matches

Maxey Brooke

Dover Pubns | 1973 | 64 páginas | pdf | 267 kb

Para mais livros sobre matemática recreativa veja em: link

With a handful of matches you can challenge yourself and your friends to match hundreds of match tricks, games and puzzles. The quipment is simple and can easily be carried with you. The tricks, games and puzzles range from the simple to the advanced. No matter how many match tricks and puzzles you have previously done you are sure to find new twists, new challenges in the puzzles in this collection.
There are classic match problems, problems by foremost puzzlers, and a number of Makey Brooke's own creations. There is match-arithmetic, where you are required to balance equations by removing or adding matches, including a few that require advanced mathematical notation. There are match spellings, match story games, tricks that involve kitchen matches, paper match books and match boxes, and simple mathematical games you can play with matches. A rich selection of match constructions, in which you are required to build, unbuild, or reconstruct squares and other geometrical units by simply moving matches, is made even richer by the inclusion of a special selection from T.R. Dawson's works. The solutions section gives complete information for solving the puzzles plus material on winning games and working the tricks.

Diophantos of Alexandria: A Study in the History of Greek Algebra

Thomas Little Heath

Cambridge, University press | 1985 | 298 páginas


pdf - link (google books)

The Greek mathematician Diophantos of Alexandria lived during the third century CE. Apart from his age (he reached eighty-four), very little else is known about his life. Even the exact form of his name is uncertain, and only a few incomplete manuscripts of his greatest work, Arithmetica, have survived. In this impressive scholarly investigation, first published in 1885, Thomas Little Heath (1861-1940) meticulously presents what can be gleaned from Greek, Latin and Arabic sources, and guides the reader through the algebraist's idiosyncratic style of mathematics, discussing his notation and originality. This was the first thorough survey of Diophantos' work to appear in English. Also reissued in this series are Heath's two-volume History of Greek Mathematics, his treatment of Greek astronomy through the work of Aristarchus of Samos, and his edition in modern notation of the Treatise on Conic Sections by Apollonius of Perga.

Soviet studies in the psychology of learning and teaching mathematics - Volumes 7 - 14

This is one of a series that is a collection of translations from the extensive Soviet literature of the past 25 years on research in the psychology of mathematics instruction. It also includes works on methods of teaching mathematics directly influenced by the psychological research. Selected papers and books considered to be of value to the American mathematics educator have been translated from the Russian and appear in this series for the first time in English. The aim of this series is to acquaint mathematics educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematical instruction in the Soviet Union.

Research on mathematical thinking of young children : six empirical studies

Leslie P. Steffe 

 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics | 1975 | 207 páginas | pdf | 3,2 Mb

online: ERIC

Para outros livros relacionados procure em: link

This volume includes reports of six studies of the thought processes of children aged four through eight. In the first paper Steffe and Smock outline a model for learning and teaching mathematics. Six reports on empirical studies are then presented in five areas of mathematics learning: (1) equivalence and order relations; (2) classification and seriation; (3) interdependence of classification, seriation, and number concepts; (4) Boolean Algebra; and (5) conservation and measurement. In a final chapter, the main findings of these papers are summarized and implications are discussed, with suggestions for further research.
