About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Countries are loved by their citizens. But India deserves maximum love and care from her children as she is not an ordinary country. Firstly, she is a great mother. And she is a great country too. Book tells us why India should be loved immensely deeply. It explains the exceptional greatness of India in earlier times on various counts and why India should regain her first position in the world soon. She has fed one-fourth of world s population cumulatively since time immemorial, in spite of having only 2.5-3.0 of world s land-area. Tolerance of her people and abundance of water food, coupled with favorable climate allowed so many people to migrate and settle here in earlier times. From ancient era to eighteenth century, her share in world-GDP was always more than 20 . Just before British rule, her share in world-GDP was around 25 , which reduced to 3 in 1947. Likewise, her share in world-trade reduced to 1.5 in 1947 from more than 60 in seventeenth century. She was a leader in almost all the fields - from Mathematics to Metaphysics, from Metallurgy to Medicine, and from Music to Martial arts. And her three unique virtues make her the greatest and the holiest place in the world - Tolerance, Kindness and Forgiveness. Our love for India should therefore be at the highest degree. And that immense love should be converted into action by launching and actively participating in a long-term intensive movement for quality productivity. The book elaborates the concept methodology for this grand movement for quality productivity. It urges Indians to get motivation from the Gita for that. Besides, book urges Indians to help eliminate poverty, to clean the country and to fight against corruption.This book is an attempt to mobilize Indians for ultimately re-making India the best nation in the world in all aspects. We are not going to live for centuries millenniums. But India will remain for ever. Let all of us - 1.25 billion Indians - make her the best nation in the world. Let future generations maintain that position. Her leadership position is good for the world too, as a renowned historian said, It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in the self-destruction of the human race. There are 10 chapters in this book, as under - -Chapter 1: Why we should love India immensely -Chapter 2: India s leadership in the world from ancient era to eighteenth century -Chapter 3: Decline of India under British rule and slow progress after Independence -Chapter 4: How to love India immensely -Chapter 5: National movement for quality productivity -Chapter 6: Helping poor people eliminating poverty -Chapter 7: Cleaning India saving the environment -Chapter 8: Fighting against corruption -Chapter 9: Relevance of teachings of the Gita -Chapter 10: My Appeals ( An appeal to parents grand-parents, to teachers, to students youngsters, to influential people, to industrialists entrepreneurs, to high net-worth individuals, to senior citizens, to leaders of various organizations, to IIT-alumni and to citizens of countries of Indian sub-continent.) About the author - An engineering graduate from IIT-Delhi a management post-graduate from IMT-Ghaziabad, Prashant Saxena is working with a corporate house and is currently responsible for its business development, strategy and analytics functions.

About this Item: Princeton University Press, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Single Digits, Marc Chamberland takes readers on a fascinating exploration of small numbers, from one to nine, looking at their history, applications, and connections to various areas of mathematics, including number theory, geometry, chaos theory, numerical analysis, and mathematical physics. For instance, why do eight perfect card shuffles leave a standard deck of cards unchanged? And, are there really six degrees of separation between all pairs of people? Chamberland explores these questions and covers vast numerical territory, such as illustrating the ways that the number three connects to chaos theory, the number of guards needed to protect an art gallery, problematic election results and so much more. The book s short sections can be read independently and digested in bite-sized chunks--especially good for learning about the Ham Sandwich Theorem and the Pizza Theorem. Appealing to high school and college students, professional mathematicians, and those mesmerized by patterns, this book shows that single digits offer a plethora of possibilities that readers can count on.

About this Item: University of Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mathematics, like language, is a universal experience. Every society counts and is empowered by its ability to count and to measure. The mathematical processes developed within various cultures differ widely, and Count Us In explores these cultural links, drawing examples from the author s personal experiences. The process of counting, like the process of communicating with words, is common to all societies worldwide but, just as there is a rich variety of languages, so too is there a rich variety in methods of counting and of recording numbers - methods that have developed over centuries to meet the needs of various groups of people. The narrative of this book takes the form of a collection of short stories based on the author s personal experience, linked together by a number of sub-themes. As a popular book on mathematics and on the personalities who created that mathematics, there are no prerequisites beyond the reader s rudimentary and possibly hazy recollection of primary-school mathematics and a curiosity to know more.

About this Item: Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 84 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.2in.Excerpt from Problems in Arithmetic, Vol. 2: For Grade IVThis book, like Book I of the Series, contains - without count; ing combinations - one thousand problems. Like those in Book I they are practical, comprehensive, simple, systematic, progressive. The first seven hundred and fifty are arranged in lessons of five problems each, and generally each problem in a lesson differs in character from every other problem in the lesson. The last two hundred and fifty problems are arranged in groups of twenty-five problems similar to one another, under ten titles. These are de signed for use in giving emphasis to any kind of problems which prove especially difficult for a class. A good method of instruction in arithmetic secures absolute accuracy in the various operations, leads the pupil to the discovery of the truths to be taught, and stimulates and strengthens the logical faculties. It makes every lesson its own reward for effort through the joy of victory over difficulty. No text-book can com pel these qualities of instruction, but it is believed that this little volume will tend to provoke and develop them. The problems presented in the following pages are generally very simple. Occasionally a few difficult problems are inserted as a challenge to the best pupils. Teachers should be sure that every new term is made clear to the pupils when it first appears. Feet, inches, pounds, square feet, cubic inches, etc. , should be as real to the child as chestnuts, straw berries, or slates; and they should be made real by the same means.

About this Item: University of Pittsburgh Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this follow-up to his popular Science Secrets, Alberto A. Martinez discusses various popular myths from the history of mathematics: that Pythagoras proved the hypotenuse theorem, that Archimedes figured out how to test the purity of a gold crown while he was in a bathtub, that the Golden Ratio is in nature and ancient architecture, that the young Galois created group theory the night before the pistol duel that killed him, and more. Some stories are partly true, others are entirely false, but all show the power of invention in history. Pythagoras emerges as a symbol of the urge to conjecture and fill in the gaps of history. He has been credited with fundamental discoveries in mathematics and the sciences, yet there is nearly no evidence that he really contributed anything to such fields at all. This book asks: how does history change when we subtract the many small exaggerations and interpolations that writers have added for over two thousand years? The Cult of Pythagoras is also about invention in a positive sense. Most people view mathematical breakthroughs as discoveries rather than invention or creativity, believing that mathematics describes a realm of eternal ideas. But mathematicians have disagreed about what is possible and impossible, about what counts as a proof, and even about the results of certain operations. Was there ever invention in the history of concepts such as zero, negative numbers, imaginary numbers, quaternions, infinity and infinitesimals? Martinez inspects a wealth of primary sources, in several languages, over a span of many centuries. By exploring disagreements and ambiguities in the history of the elements of mathematics, The Cult of Pythagoras dispels myths that obscure the actual origins of mathematical concepts. Martinez argues that an accurate history that analyses myths reveals neglected aspects of mathematics that can encourage creativity in students and mathematicians.

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 176 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 0.4in.Countries are loved by their citizens. But India deserves maximum love and care from her children as she is not an ordinary country. Firstly, she is a great mother. And she is a great country too. Book tells us why India should be loved immensely and deeply. It explains the exceptional greatness of India in earlier times on various counts and why India should regain her first position in the world soon. She has fed one-fourth of worlds population cumulatively since time immemorial, in spite of having only 2. 5-3. 0 of worlds land-area. Tolerance of her people and abundance of water and food, coupled with favorable climate allowed so many people to migrate and settle here in earlier times. From ancient era to eighteenth century, her share in world-GDP was always more than 20. Just before British rule, her share in world-GDP was around 25, which reduced to 3 in 1947. Likewise, her share in world-trade reduced to 1. 5 in 1947 from more than 60 in seventeenth century. She was a leader in almost all the fields - from Mathematics to Metaphysics, from Metallurgy to Medicine, and from Music to Martial arts. And her three unique virtues make her the greatest and the holiest place in the world - Tolerance, Kindness and Forgiveness. Our love for India should therefore be at the highest degree. And that immense love should be converted into action by launching and actively participating in a long-term intensive movement for quality and productivity. The book elaborates the concept and methodology for this grand movement for quality and productivity. It urges Indians to get motivation from the Gita for that. Besides, book urges Indians to help eliminate poverty, to clean the country and to fight against corruption. This book is an attempt to mobilize Indians for ultimately re-making India the best nation in the world in all aspects. We are not going to live for centuries and millenniums. But India will remain for ever. Let all of us - 1. 25 billion Indians - make her the best nation in the world. Let future generations maintain that position. Her leadership position is good for the world too, as a renowned historian said, It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in the self-destruction of the human race. . . There are 10 chapters in this book, as under -Chapter 1 : Why we should love India immensely -Chapter 2 : Indias leadership in the world from ancient era to eighteenth century -Chapter 3 : Decline of India under British rule and slow progress after Independence -Chapter 4 : How to love India immensely -Chapter 5 : National movement for quality and productivity -Chapter 6 : Helping poor people and eliminating poverty -Chapter 7 : Cleaning India and saving the environment -Chapter 8 : Fighting against corruption -Chapter 9 : Relevance of teachings of the Gita -Chapter 10 : My Appeals ( An appeal to parents and grand-parents, to teachers, to students and youngsters, to influential people, to industrialists and entrepreneurs, to high net-worth individuals, to senior citizens, to leaders of various organizations, to IIT-alumni and to citizens of countries of Indian sub-continent. ) About the author - An engineering graduate from IIT-Delhi and a management post-graduate from IMT-Ghaziabad, Prashant Saxena is working with a corporate house and is currently responsible for its business development, strategy and analytics functions. In his pastime, he likes to read. A fitness freak, he is into rigorous work-outs. He also writes poems, mainly in Hindi.

About this Item: Princeton University Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Single Digits, Marc Chamberland takes readers on a fascinating exploration of small numbers, from one to nine, looking at their history, applications, and connections to various areas of mathematics, including number theory, geometry, chaos theory, numerical analysis, and mathematical physics. For instance, why do eight perfect card shuffles leave a standard deck of cards unchanged? And, are there really six degrees of separation between all pairs of people? Chamberland explores these questions and covers vast numerical territory, such as illustrating the ways that the number three connects to chaos theory, the number of guards needed to protect an art gallery, problematic election results and so much more. The book s short sections can be read independently and digested in bite-sized chunks--especially good for learning about the Ham Sandwich Theorem and the Pizza Theorem. Appealing to high school and college students, professional mathematicians, and those mesmerized by patterns, this book shows that single digits offer a plethora of possibilities that readers can count on.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Mathematics, like language, is a universal experience. Every society counts and is empowered by its ability to count and to measure. The mathematical processes developed within various cultures differ widely, and Count Us In explores these cultural links, drawing examples from the author s personal experiences. The process of counting, like the process of communicating with words, is common to all societies worldwide but, just as there is a rich variety of languages, so too is there a rich variety in methods of counting and of recording numbers - methods that have developed over centuries to meet the needs of various groups of people. The narrative of this book takes the form of a collection of short stories based on the author s personal experience, linked together by a number of sub-themes. As a popular book on mathematics and on the personalities who created that mathematics, there are no prerequisites beyond the reader s rudimentary and possibly hazy recollection of primary-school mathematics and a curiosity to know more.
