Note: Some databases and search engines require that Boolean operators be typed in all caps to distinguish them from search terms.
To truncate a search term, enter a minimum of the first three letters followed by a question mark (?) or an asterisk (*).
Example:child* or infant*
Use parentheses to create more precise searches.
Example:(games or toys) and (child* or infant*)
Note for Distance Learners
If you are on a satellite campus or taking classes online, you have the same access to library resources as students on the Alva campus. That includes books in our print collection, which we can deliver by mail or courier. See the Interlibrary Loan page for details:
This volume covers some of the most recent and significant advances in computer mathematics, including algebraic, symbolic, numeric, and geometric computation; automated mathematical reasoning; mathematical software; and computer-aided geometric design.
Provides teachers with insights into how other teachers and researchers have discovered ways to create powerful learning experiences for children. This book helps the reader to understand why certain teaching approaches with technology are effective than others, as well as providing practical ideas for activities and projects for children.
Ruskeepaa gives a general introduction to the most recent versions of Mathematica, the symbolic computation software from Wolfram. The book emphasizes graphics, methods of applied mathematics and statistics, and programming.
The explosion of data arising from rapid advances in communication, sensing, and computational power has concentrated research effort on more advanced techniques for the representation, processing, analysis, and interpretation of data sets. In view of these exciting developments, the program “Mathematics and Computation in Imaging Science and Information Processing” was held at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National University of Singapore, from to and in to promote and facilitate multidisciplinary research in the area.
Mathematics Education with Digital Technology examines ways in which widely available digital technologies can be used to benefit the teaching and learning of mathematics. The contributors offer their insights to locate the value of digital technology for mathematics learning within the context of evidence from documented practice, prior research and of educational policy making.
