Making Mathematics Meaningful For Students in the Intermediate Grades is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in helping students reach the key learning outcomes of any mathematics curriculum. Developed through live and videotaped classroom observation and through diagnostic and achievement interviews with students, Making Mathematics Meaningful is a research-based guide to mathematics education that eschews outdated models based primarily and memorization and repetition in favor of a more holistic approach that encourages students to develop their mathematical reasoning skills through problem solving. This approach not only teaches students to become critical thinkers, but also contributes to language development, reading comprehension, and evaluative skills. Author Werner W. Liedtke offers advice on developing questioning strategies and creating practice tasks to ensure that students encounter the critical components of a mathematics program. For each topic, he provides assessment strategies and identifies key prerequisite skills and ideas that can be used for pre-tests, diagnostic purposes, or introductory teaching/learning settings. Making Mathematics Meaningful teaches students to * improve written and oral communication; * connect ideas to previous learning and to settings outside the classroom; * discover strategies for personal estimation and mental mathematics; * learn through problem solving; * develop curiosity, perseverance, and confidence.

Clocks became common in late medieval Europe and the measurement of time began to rule everyday life. God's Clockmaker is a biography of England's greatest medieval scientist, a man who solved major practical and theoretical problems to build an extraordinary and pioneering astronomical and astrological clock. Richard of Wallingford (1292-1336), the son of a blacksmith, was a brilliant mathematician with a genius for the practical solution of technical problems. Trained at Oxford, he became a monk and then abbot of the great abbey of St Albans, where he built his clock. Although as abbot he held great power, he was also a tragic figure, becoming a leper. His achievement, nevertheless, is a striking example of the sophistication of medieval science, based on knowledge handed down from the Greeks via the Arabs.

Musical instruments, as resonating systems, have been used as models for understanding human character from the seventeenth century onward. The author explores the implications of this model - how, for example, someone's character, conceived instrumentally, 'plays' and 'is played upon', as well as the kinds of 'music' it 'plays'. This concept has contributed significantly to the development of theory in biomedical, neuro-, and cognitive sciences, and this account provides an important chapter in the history of the philosophy of science.
