📒A Mind For Numbers ✍ Barbara Oakley
📝A Mind For Numbers Book Synopsis : The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn" Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life. In A Mind for Numbers, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively—secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they’d known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there’s only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions—you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think! From the Trade Paperback edition.

📒Mental Math ✍ Joseph White
📝Mental Math Book Synopsis : Mental math is a skill people practice on a daily basis, often subconsciously, which involves doing calculations in your head. In mental math, you don't have to write down elaborate details concerning the variables involved. Children are usually encouraged to learn mental math skills early in school, because being good at mental calculations can make a person successful in many other fields. Please note that even if being good at mental math does not necessarily signify high intelligence, people usually think it does, and that perception can help you obtain opportunities for advanced study or career development. Mental math proficiency is not just good for academic pursuits but also helps make life easier overall. This book dives deep into the mechanics of mental math and provides examples that will help the reader build mental math proficiency quickly.

📒What Counts ✍ Brian Butterworth
📝What Counts Book Synopsis : Demonstrates that an innate sense of numbers is as integral to the makeup of the human brain as the sense of language, arguing that there is a math gene and that mathematics is fundamental to human nature
📒The Number Sense How The Mind Creates Mathematics ✍ Stanislas Dehaene
📝The Number Sense How the Mind Creates Mathematics Book Synopsis : The Number Sense is an enlightening exploration of the mathematical mind. Describing experiments that show that human infants have a rudimentary number sense, Stanislas Dehaene suggests that this sense is as basic as our perception of color, and that it is wired into the brain. Dehaene shows that it was the invention of symbolic systems of numerals that started us on the climb to higher mathematics. A fascinating look at the crossroads where numbers and neurons intersect, The Number Sense offers an intriguing tour of how the structure of the brain shapes our mathematical abilities, and how our mathematics opens up a window on the human mind.
📒The Number Sense ✍ Stanislas Dehaene
📝The Number Sense Book Synopsis : Our understanding of how the human brain performs mathematical calculations is far from complete, but in recent years there have been many exciting breakthroughs by scientists all over the world. Now, in The Number Sense, Stanislas Dehaene offers a fascinating look at this recent research, in an enlightening exploration of the mathematical mind. Dehaene begins with the eye-opening discovery that animals--including rats, pigeons, raccoons, and chimpanzees--can perform simple mathematical calculations, and that human infants also have a rudimentary number sense. Dehaene suggests that this rudimentary number sense is as basic to the way the brain understands the world as our perception of color or of objects in space, and, like these other abilities, our number sense is wired into the brain. These are but a few of the wealth of fascinating observations contained here. We also discover, for example, that because Chinese names for numbers are so short, Chinese people can remember up to nine or ten digits at a time--English-speaking people can only remember seven. The book also explores the unique abilities of idiot savants and mathematical geniuses, and we meet people whose minute brain lesions render their mathematical ability useless. This new and completely updated edition includes all of the most recent scientific data on how numbers are encoded by single neurons, and which brain areas activate when we perform calculations. Perhaps most important, The Number Sense reaches many provocative conclusions that will intrigue anyone interested in learning, mathematics, or the mind. "A delight." --Ian Stewart, New Scientist "Read The Number Sense for its rich insights into matters as varying as the cuneiform depiction of numbers, why Jean Piaget's theory of stages in infant learning is wrong, and to discover the brain regions involved in the number sense." --The New York Times Book Review "Dehaene weaves the latest technical research into a remarkably lucid and engrossing investigation. Even readers normally indifferent to mathematics will find themselves marveling at the wonder of minds making numbers." --Booklist

📒A Mind For Math ✍ Lee Giles
📝A Mind for Math Book Synopsis : Welcome to A Mind for Math, part of Genesis Curriculum. Its focus is on thinking about how to use math to solve problems and how numbers work together and can be manipulated. This book is the lesson guide and the answer key. This course is done like those in the main curriculum. It draws on the daily Bible reading. To use the curriculum you just read through the lesson from the beginning. They can work out answers in their leveled workbooks. There are four different workbooks: levels A, B, C, D. Each leveled workbook has its own problems and those for the levels before it. By working with the older kids, younger kids will get exposed to concepts like division, and the older kids will get daily review by working with the younger children. You can even use the higher levels to challenge a younger kid who is eager to try more.On review days, they will be working on their own problems in their own workbooks. There are 180 days of work in their workbooks. When the main curriculum breaks at 140 days, the math books have individual review pages for the remaining 40 days. That means you don't have to gather each day for a lesson, but they can keep going with their math, which is really good for them instead of taking a big break from it and losing a lot of progress.This is the version matched to the Book of Acts.
