Produced to meet high school requirements, this version of the new edition of For All Practical Purposes is the most effective and engaging textbook available for showing mathematics at work in areas with a direct impact on our lives (consumer products and advertising, politics, the economy, the Internet).
Basics of Legal Document Preparation provides essential knowledge necessary for students to determine the appropriate legal document required in any given situation. It also provides the technical skills required for students to prepare each document. The book is divided into three sections with the first consisting of goals, forms, instruments, pleading and general American jurisprudence. The second section focuses on instruments such as contracts, real estate transactions, wills, and trusts. And the third section is comprised of legal pleadings for many specific areas of law such as bankruptcy, criminal and appellate practices, federal practice, and domestic relations.

This book describes the design, development, delivery and impact of the mathematics assessment for the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). First, the origins of PISA’s concept of mathematical literacy are discussed, highlighting the underlying themes of mathematics as preparation for life after school and mathematical modelling of the real world, and clarifying PISA’s position within this part of the mathematics education territory. The PISA mathematics framework is introduced as a significant milestone in the development and dissemination of these ideas. The underlying mathematical competencies on which mathematical literacy so strongly depends are described, along with a scheme to use them in item creation and analysis. The development and implementation of the PISA survey and the consequences for the outcomes are thoroughly discussed. Different kinds of items for both paper-based and computer-based PISA surveys are exemplified by many publicly released items along with details of scoring. The novel survey of the opportunity students have had to learn the mathematics promoted through PISA is explained. The book concludes by surveying international impact. It presents viewpoints of mathematics educators on how PISA and its constituent ideas and methods have influenced teaching and learning practices, curriculum arrangements, assessment practices, and the educational debate more generally in fourteen countries.

Why do so many learners, even those who are successful, feel that they are outsiders in the world of mathematics? Taking the central importance of language in the development of mathematical understanding as its starting point, Mathematical Literacy explores students’ experiences of doing mathematics from primary school to university - what they think mathematics is, how it is presented to them, and what they feel about it. Building on a range of theory which focuses on community, knowledge, and identity, the author examines two particular issues: the relationship between language, learning, and mathematical knowledge, and the relationship between identity, equity, and processes of exclusion/inclusion. In this comprehensive and accessible book, the author extends our understanding of the process of gaining mathematical fluency, and provides tools for an exploration of mathematics learning across different groups in different social contexts. Mathematical Literacy’s analysis of how learners develop particular relationships with the subject, and what we might do to promote equity through the development of positive relationships, is of interest across all sectors of education—to researchers, teacher educators, and university educators.
The Environment and You
Author: Norman L. Christensen, Lissa Leege, Justin St. Juliana
This loose-leaf, three-hole punched version of the textbook gives students the flexibility to take only what they need to class and add their own notes--all at an affordable price. For Introductory Environmental Science Courses (Non-Majors). Build and practice skills needed to understand complex environmental issues The Environment and You, 3rd Edition, by Norm Christensen, Lissa Leege, and new co-author Justin St. Juliana, gives today's generation of students reason to be hopeful about environmental challenges. The authors draw on their pedagogical expertise and classroom experience to help students establish a reliable foundation in science. The unbiased approach of the text equips students with important analytical and quantitative reasoning skills, including how to ask questions to seek information required to develop informed opinions. The authors strive to inspire students, by connecting the course to choices they can make as citizens and demonstrating the role science can play in influencing personal, community, and global environmental issues. With the 3rd Edition, new features include You Decide which presents complex environmental issues and invites students to take a position and consider the results of their position. New Misconceptions address common student misunderstandings related to matters of scientific fact and tackle them head on. The textbook is closely integrated with Mastering(tm) Environmental Science to support instructors and students with a wide variety of engaging assignments and activities.

Quantitative Literacy shows students that they use math in their everyday lives more than they realize, and that learning math in real-world contexts not only makes it easier to get better grades, but prepares them for decisions they’ll face about money, voting and politics, health issues, and much more. The authors draw on a wide range of examples to give students basic mathematical tools― from sports to personal finance to sociopolitical action to medical tests to the arts―with coverage that neatly balances discussions of ideas with computational practice. The thoroughly new edition offers new pedagogy and more examples of math in everyday life. It is also now a fully integrated text/media package with it’s own dedicated version of LaunchPad, W. H. Freeman’s breakthrough online course space. What's in the LaunchPad.
