This brief presents the results of a study on the development of the mobile app-supported math trail program for learning mathematics. This study is a part of the MathCityMap-Project, a project of the MATIS I Team from IDMI Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Germany, that comprises math trails around the city that are supported by the use of GPS-enabled mobile phone technology. The project offers an activity that is designed to support students in constructing their own mathematical knowledge by solving the prepared mathematical tasks on the math trail and interacting with the environment, including the digital environment. The brief focuses specifically on the development of a model for a mobile app-supported math trail programme and the implementation of this programme in Indonesia. It offers both an empirical exploration of its implementation as well as critical assessment of students’ motivation in mathematics, their own performance, as well as teachers’ mathematics beliefs. It concludes with a future-forward perspective by recommending strategies for implementation in schools, among the general public of the existing math trails (including its supporting tool). It also discusses strategies for developing and designing new trails and suggests further research in other geographical regions and contexts for continued project development and implementation. Learning Mathematics in a Mobile App-Supported Math Trail Environment articulates an innovative and exciting future for integrating real mathematical tasks and geographic and digital environment into effective mathematics education.

As a juggler the author likes to finish his performances with a stunt that combines props and techniques from a variety of juggling disciplines. Imagine him idling on a giraffe unicycle, while balancing a spinning basketball on a mouth stick, and toss-juggling a sword, a toilet plunger, and a rubber chicken. As a mathematician he is also interested in the treasure trove of beautiful mathematics used to model the different activities in a juggler's repertoire. In this book he provides an intellectually stimulating collection of mostly self-contained mathematical essays that introduce the reader to many elegant results and techniques from a wide range of mathematical disciplines such as combinatorics, graph theory, knot theory, mechanics, differential equations, control theory, and robotics. "The Mathematics of Juggling" is the first comprehensive account summarizing and expanding the results in the literature on juggling tricks and skills, as well as the mathematics behind these tricks and skills. Anybody who is not put off by the word "mathematics" in the title of this book should have a good time reading it.

A short primer on each of the major math content areas that preservice and inservice elementary and middle school teachers are required to know. This book is an invaluable resource for the classroom teacher who needs both an overview for planning and help in answering student questions. Based broadly on the national standards, it gives the teacher general scientific information to cover most state's standards and to help prepare them for teacher certification exams. It also provides a strong overview of mathematical knowledge to allow the teacher to find information on important concepts, to see where significant moments in mathematical history fit chronologically, and to improve the teacher's understanding of mathematical ideas and concepts. Moreover, it saves professors from having to re-teach mathematics content so they can remain focused on the methods.

Wie die Liebe und die Musik hat Mathematik die Gabe, Menschen glücklich zu machen. Angesichts ihrer oft kargen Darreichungsform eine kühne Behauptung? Dafür, dass sie dennoch stimmt, tritt der Mathematiker und Mathematik-Belletrist Christian Hesse in seinem neuen Buch den Beweis an – in 151 verblüffenden Geschichten. Die Mathematik ist nicht nur ein grandioses Abenteuer im Kopf und eine über Jahrtausende gewachsene Ressource der menschlichen Kultur. Sie ist noch mehr: ein «vielseitiger großer Ratschläger für alle Fälle der Welt» (Ror Wolf). Warum haben Tiger Streifen, Dalmatiner Punkte und Elefanten nichts von beidem? Warum haben manche Heuschreckenarten Lebenszyklen, deren Länge immer Primzahlen sind? Wie ist es möglich festzustellen, dass Homer die Odyssee nicht geschrieben hat? Diese und viele andere Fragen kann die Mathematik beantworten, und wie sie dabei vorgeht und vor allem wie der Autor dieses Vorgehen darstellt, das verfolgt der Leser mit Faszination, bisweilen Erstaunen und immer mit Vergnügen.

Mitten in Karos geschäftliche Krise platzt auch noch Martin Sander, der Bergführer ihrer Albträume. Seine jüngst geerbte Finca auf Teneriffa entpuppt sich allerdings als Lösung für Karos anderes Problem: ihrem verwitweten Schwager Ralf und seiner neuen Liebe Jenny zu einer märchenhaften Hochzeitsreise zu verhelfen. Gleichzeitig brechen senegalesische Flüchtlinge in einem alten Fischerboot zu den Kanarischen Inseln auf. Sobald Karo mit den Kindern in der zweiten Woche nachkommt, scheint über dem zauberhaften Idyll ein Fluch zu liegen. Ein Sturm fegt über die Insel, der das junge Glück in höchste Gefahr bringt und die Flüchtlinge vom Kurs ab. Voller Chaos, Drama, Spannung und Blödelei führt diese eigenständige Geschichte die Figuren aus "Obacht: Rutschig" in die nächste Etappe.

Dieser Roman umspannt den Zeitraum zwischen der Weltausstellung in Chicago 1893 und den Jahren kurz nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg; er führt von Colorado über London und Göttingen, Venedig und Wien, den Balkan, Sibirien bis zum Hollywood der Stummfilmära sowie an ein, zwei Orte, die auf keiner Landkarte zu finden sind. Mit schrankenloser Phantasie und mit kauzigem Witz erzählt Thomas Pynchon von Macht, Dynamit und zügelloser Geldgier: «Vielleicht ist dies nicht die Welt, aber mit ein, zwei kleinen Änderungen könnte sie es sein.» «Das einzige Buch dieser Jahre, das die Welt, wie sie ist, tatsächlich herausfordert.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Ein Meisterwerk, wie man es als Literaturkritiker vielleicht nur einmal in seinem Leben annoncieren darf ... aktueller als hier hat Pynchon nie geschrieben.» (Denis Scheck) «Sein komischster und zugleich sein zugänglichster Roman.» (The New York Book Review) «Pynchon lesen ist wie ein Sabbatical von all dem Müll, der uns umgibt.» (Stern) «Unvergesslich ... eines der größten Abenteuer der Gegenwartsliteratur.» (Focus) «Kaum eine der 1600 Seiten, auf der es nicht poetisch funkeln würde, die nicht von skurrilem Witz durchzogen wäre. Auf Knien möchte man den Übersetzern danken.» (Tagesspiegel) «Das Opus magnum im bisherigen Schaffen von Thomas Pynchon.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)

Like Jared Diamond in Guns, Germs, and Steel, Peter Turchin in War and Peace and War uses his expertise in evolutionary biology to make a highly original argument about the rise and fall of empires. Turchin argues that the key to the formation of an empire is a society’s capacity for collective action. He demonstrates that high levels of cooperation are found where people have to band together to fight off a common enemy, and that this kind of cooperation led to the formation of the Roman and Russian empires, and the United States. But as empires grow, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, conflict replaces cooperation, and dissolution inevitably follows. Eloquently argued and rich with historical examples, War and Peace and War offers a bold new theory about the course of world history.
