Mathematics Teachers at Work: Connecting Curriculum Materials and Classroom Instruction

This book compiles and synthesizes existing research on teachers use of mathematics curriculum materials and the impact of curriculum materials on teaching and teachers, with a particular emphasis on but not restricted to those materials developed in the 1990s in response to the NCTMs Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. Despite the substantial amount of curriculum development activity over the last 15 years and growing scholarly interest in their use, the book represents the first compilation of research on teachers and mathematics curriculum materials and the first volume with this focus in any content area in several decades.

Computer Algebra Recipes for Mathematical Physics

This book is a self-contained guide to the Maple computer algebra system which draws its examples from mathematical physics. The format of the book is very pleasant for the reader. The book consists of short examples, each about 1-3 pages, which describe the problem studied and then provide a recipe to solve it. Each example begins with a humorous or witty citation from the writers of the past -- a good method to stimulate the reader. The recipes cover a great number of topicsand each topic is subdivided into numerous examples. This book is best suited for physicists but also mathematicians would find this text very useful.

Solving Applied Mathematical Problems with MATLAB

This textbook presents a variety of applied mathematics topics in science and engineering with an emphasis on problem solving techniques using MATLAB. The authors provide a general overview of the MATLAB language and its graphics abilities before delving into problem solving, making the book useful for readers without prior MATLAB experience. They explain how to generate code suitable for various applications so that readers can apply the techniques to problems not covered in the book. Examples, figures, and MATLAB scripts enable readers with basic mathematics knowledge to solve various applied math problems in their fields while avoiding unnecessary technical details.

Basic Engineering Mathematics, Fourth Edition

Unlike most engineering maths texts, this book does not assume a firm grasp of GCSE maths, yet unlike low-level general maths texts the content is tailored for the needs of engineers. The result is a unique text written for engineering students, but which takes a starting point below GCSE level.Basic Engineering Mathematicsis therefore ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, and especially for those who find the theoretical side of mathematics difficult.John Bird's approach is based on numerous worked examples, supported by 575 worked problems and followed by 1000 further problems. The content has been designed to match current Level 2 courses, including intermediate GNVQ, Engineering GCSE and the new specifications for BTEC First.Level 3 students who struggle with their maths will also find this book particularly useful. With this in mind, all topics within the compulsory units of the AVCE (Applied Mathematics for Engineering) and the new specifications for BTEC National (Mathematics for Technicians) are covered.

The Finite Element Method 5th Ed Vol 2

In the years since the fourth edition of this seminal work was published, active research has developed the Finite Element Method into the pre-eminent tool for the modelling of physical systems. Written by the pre-eminent professors in their fields, this new edition of the Finite Element Method maintains the comprehensive style of the earlier editions and authoritatively incorporates the latest developments of this dynamic field. Expanded to three volumes the book now covers the basis of the method and its application to advanced solid mechanics and also advanced fluid dynamics. Volume Two: Solid and Structural Mechanics is intended for readers studying structural mechanics at a higher level. Although it is an ideal companion volume to Volume One: The Basis, this advanced text also functions as a "stand-alone" volume, accessible to those who have been introduced to the Finite Element Method through a different route.Volume 1 of the Finite Element Method provides a complete introduction to the method and is essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and professional engineers. Volume 3 covers the whole range of fluid dynamics and is ideal reading for postgraduate students and professional engineers working in this discipline.Coverage of the concepts necessary to model behaviour, such as viscoelasticity, plasticity and creep, as well as shells and plates.Up-to-date coverage of new linked interpolation methods for shell and plate formations.New material on non-linear geometry, stability and buckling of structures and large deformations.

The Finite Element Method 5th Ed Vol 1

In the years since the fourth edition of this seminal work was published, active research has further developed the Finite Element Method into the pre-eminent tool for the modelling of physical systems. Written by the pre-eminent professors in their fields, this new edition of the Finite Element Method maintains the comprehensive style of the earlier editions and authoritatively incorporates the latest developments of this dynamic field. Expanded to three volumes the book now covers the basis of the method and its application to advanced solid mechanics and also advanced fluid dynamics. Volume 1: The Basis is intended as a broad overview of the Finite Element Method. Aimed at undergraduates, postgraduates and professional engineers, it provides a complete introduction to the method.Volume 2 and Volume 3 of the Finite Element Method cover non-linear solid and structural mechanics and fluid dynamics respectively. Both are essential reading for postgraduate students and professional engineers working in these disciplines.New material on recovery, accuracy, error estimates and adaptivity.Increased coverage of mixed and hybrid methods including the Discontinuous Galerkin and Enhanced Strain Methods.Expanded chapter on incompressible behaviour and stabilization procedures.

Higher Order Finite Element Methods

The finite element method has always been a mainstay for solving engineering problems numerically. The most recent developments in the field clearly indicate that its future lies in higher-order methods, particularly in higher-orderhp-adaptive schemes. These techniques respond well to the increasing complexity of engineering simulations and satisfy the overall trend of simultaneous resolution of phenomena with multiple scales.Higher-Order Finite Element Methodsprovides an thorough survey of intrinsic techniques and the practical know-how needed to implement higher-order finite element schemes. It presents the basic priniciples of higher-order finite element methods and the technology of conforming discretizations based on hierarchic elements in spacesH^1,H(curl) andH(div). The final chapter provides an example of an efficient and robust strategy for automatic goal-orientedhp-adaptivity.Although it will still take some time for fully automatichp-adaptive finite element methods to become standard engineering tools, their advantages are clear. In straightforward prose that avoids mathematical jargon whenever possible, this book paves the way for fully realizing the potential of these techniques and putting them at the disposal of practicing engineers.
