Strange Curves, CouSnting Rabbits and other Mathematical Explorationsis an excellent popular math book for the right audience. I had a lot of fun reading it, and will probably re-read at some point.
When my son was about two and a half, I came home one day after work to find him reading. Actually, I was pretty sure that he had just memorized words because we had read to him so much. A cursory test, however, verified the fact that he had taught himself to read. There was no doubt about it; he was a smart kid.
When I first signed on, I thought I would prefer elementary school. I was registered at my boys’ school and the calls just weren’t coming in. But my daughter’s middle school always had openings.
Flatworld Knowledge is a site where teachers can review, adopt, and make available free online books for students. Students can also choose to get a hard copy or audio version for a fee.
Sometimes, there are math problems that the examples don’t help with. At this point, either another R.S Aggarwal Quantitative Aptitude Book in Hindi with a related subject has to be acquired or another way of solving the problem has to be found. Many times when students take math they are left on their own to solve the problem. As a result, they have to rely on their textbook to help them out. If the book doesn’t help another alternative would be to find a math tutor. The math tutor may have encountered this problem before and can show how to solve it. Math tutors can be found for many math subjects such as algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus and statistics. They also range in different skill levels and prices. A tutor, however, can provide quick help to solving a homework problem.
Another good way to learn about the interests of your friends, especially if they are way over your head, is to check a book on the subject out of the children’s department in your local library. These books are factual, but not as deep as an adult book on the same subject would be. You can gain a quick overview of the subject without being driven to tears trying to understand something that is clearly not your cup of tea.
This is a book of recreational mathematics, but it is relatively serious. Several of the chapters have some calculus, one has a bit of simple matrix algebra. So, if you are reading this on your own, it’s probably best if you had at least one course in calculus at some point – even if you don’t remember it very well. So, that’s one audience.
After further investigation, if your child actually has ADD/ADHD, an auditory processing difficulty, or a visual processing difficulty or a combination of them, and it is impacting their education, they should be able to qualify for accommodations within the classroom via a 504 Plan if they don’t qualify for an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). Sometimes auditory processing problems are actually CAPD, Central Auditory Processing Disorder.
