Higher Order Mortar Finite Elements with Dual Lagrange Multipliers presents the theories and applications of higher order nonconforming finite element techniques based on the mortar method. As the mortar finite element method is based on replacing the usual point-wise continuity condition by a weak matching condition, the dual Lagrange multipliers allow an efficient and easy realization of this weak matching condition. In addition to the main contribution of this work on the construction of dual Lagrange basis functions for higher order finite elements in two and three dimensions, there are also some interesting theoretical advancement and applications of the mortar finite elements. Moreover, a popular three-field formulation in elasticity, the Hu-Washizu principle, is analysed for linear elasticity and extended to non-linear elasticity. Mortar techniques are applied to analyse interface problems for elliptic partial differential equations and to solve different coupled problems coming from physical and engineering applications.

Research in mathematics education abounds in studies of negative feelings associated with learning mathematics. But what about positive feelings? There are people who like or even love mathematics. Based on personal experience, the author of this book set out to investigate the positive influence that mathematics may have on an affective level. Mathematics is more than a school subject. It is a field of knowledge which has attracted philosophical attention over the centuries. A field which offers a world-view of order, harmony, and ultimately security. Combining philosophical perspectives with psychological structures, this book provides a framework which relates properties of mathematics with human needs. Consequently, this framework is tested in the relationship of working mathematicians with their subject. Their views about mathematics complete the framework with the variety of interconnections and contradictions, typical of human psychology. The analysis offers an account of elements on which a positive relationship with mathematics can be built and it should be useful to teachers who wish to cultivate the love of their students for mathematics.

The subject of mathematics is being taught since ancient history. Mathematics teachers had tried to make it easier and understandable to the learners. At times mathematics learning was considered as practicing a series of techniques to master them and use the same over and over again in a series of problems. The main focus of teachers remained on rote memorizing the facts and applying them to solve the problems quickly. The development of modern technology has profoundly affected the ways organizations and individuals around the world achieve their objectives and teachers and researchers in mathematics see mathematics learning and teaching as a significant part of social construction of knowledge. These technological advances have substantially broadened the applications of mathematics, not only in scholarship, science, industry, business, and government, but also more prominently than before in such areas as agriculture, health, politics, and the arts. Therefore, teachers and researchers throughout the world are trying to find the new ways and techniques of teaching mathematics and researchers of mathematics education are more concerned with use of technology.

Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques The most challenging parts of teaching mathematics are engaging students and helping them understand the connections between mathematics concepts. In this volume, you'll find a collection of low floor, high ceiling tasks that will help you do just that, by looking at the big ideas at the fourth-grade level through visualization, play, and investigation. During their work with tens of thousands of teachers, authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams heard the same message—that they want to incorporate more brain science into their math instruction, but they need guidance in the techniques that work best to get across the concepts they needed to teach. So the authors designed Mindset Mathematics around the principle of active student engagement, with tasks that reflect the latest brain science on learning. Open, creative, and visual math tasks have been shown to improve student test scores, and more importantly change their relationship with mathematics and start believing in their own potential. The tasks in Mindset Mathematics reflect the lessons from brain science that: There is no such thing as a math person – anyone can learn mathematics to high levels. Mistakes, struggle and challenge are the most important times for brain growth. Speed is unimportant in mathematics. Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics. With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.

This project concerns mainly the study of the critical point Theory of Lusternik-Schnirelman which relies deeply on concepts from Nonlinear Analysis, Topology and Geometry, and has numerous applications to Variational Problems and Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) of variational nature. We first survey the general variational principles and provide the underlying abstract setting need for the theory and its applications. Secondly we present a very successful min-max method (Ambrosetti-Rabinowitz Mountain-pass theorem) based on the Palais-Smale (compactness) condition and followed by examples. Afterwards we introduce progressively the Lusternik-Schrenirelman theories in Euclidean spaces (finite dimensional case) and in Hilbert spaces as well as in uniformly convex Banach spaces (infinite dimensional cases), along with applications.

The approximation theory is a scope of mathematical analysis, which at its essence, is interested with the approximation of functions by simpler and more easily calculated functions. This theory has widely influenced such other areas of mathematics as orthogonal polynomials, partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, and wavelet analysis. Some modern applications include computer graphics, signal processing, economic forecasting, and pattern recognition.

The construct of mathematical identity has recently been widely used in mathematics education with the intention to understand how students relate to and engage (or disengage) with mathematics. Mathematical identity is defined as the students’ knowledge, abilities, skills, beliefs, dispositions, attitudes and emotions, that relates to mathematics and mathematics learning. A key part of this relationship that students have with mathematics is the students’ evolving sense of self to understand how mathematics fits with this self. Research shows that students’ identity has many facets or multiple identities that are formed throughout their life history; engagement with their peers, family, and teachers; as well as engagement with mathematical tasks. Doing mathematics can be viewed as mathematical activity that involves integrating mathematical thinking by using mathematical facts and knowledge, and requires active student learning. Mathematical tasks used in the classroom form the basis for student’s learning and different tasks are used to develop different types of skills and thinking. These tasks often appear in curricular or instructional materials in textbooks.

One of the first books to provide in-depth and systematic application of finite element methods to the field of stochastic structural dynamics The parallel developments of the Finite Element Methods in the 1950’s and the engineering applications of stochastic processes in the 1940’s provided a combined numerical analysis tool for the studies of dynamics of structures and structural systems under random loadings. In the open literature, there are books on statistical dynamics of structures and books on structural dynamics with chapters dealing with random response analysis. However, a systematic treatment of stochastic structural dynamics applying the finite element methods seems to be lacking. Aimed at advanced and specialist levels, the author presents and illustrates analytical and direct integration methods for analyzing the statistics of the response of structures to stochastic loads. The analysis methods are based on structural models represented via the Finite Element Method. In addition to linear problems the text also addresses nonlinear problems and non-stationary random excitation with systems having large spatially stochastic property variations. A systematic treatment of stochastic structural dynamics applying the finite element methods Highly illustrated throughout and aimed at advanced and specialist levels, it focuses on computational aspects instead of theory Emphasizes results mainly in the time domain with limited contents in the time-frequency domain Presents and illustrates direction integration methods for analyzing the statistics of the response of linear and nonlinear structures to stochastic loads Under Author Information – one change of word to existing text: He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)........

We intended to write this book simple and easy enough for those mathematics majors in their sophomore year or above while boiling down some of the contents to make it appropriate as a semester long number theory textbook without including quadratic congruences, sums of squares, and continued fractions. This book is not only suitable for those graduate students in mathematics as a number theory seminar reference who are not majoring in number theory, but also for those gifted juniors and seniors in high school as a guidance who are preparing for the International Mathematics Olympiad.

This text contains a concise collection of papers published in international journals and work given at mathematics conferences and seminars. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the knowledge of the concepts of group theory and ring theory offered in undergraduate courses in modern algebra. The main objective of this text is to bring to a wider research audience a readable and rigorous account of a certain type of finite rings and solve some concrete algebraic problems of determining the structure of their groups of units. The book is divided into two parts. The first is concerned with defining concepts and terminology, assembling elementary facts and developing the theory of completely primary finite rings. The second, and the most important part, concerns the problem of determining the structure of the group of units of these rings. Graduate students wishing to acquire some knowledge of finite ring theory and structure of their groups of units will find this an excellent text for self-study.

Studies have shown that the use of computer technologies enhance the learning of students. The integration of ICT is seen as a priority by governments and schools both in Australia and overseas but despite the resultant provision of infrastructure and professional development, little appears to be happening in secondary school classrooms. Mathematics education in public secondary schools in New South Wales, Australia and around the world has been experiencing a wave of reforms directed toward the integration of technology in mathematics courses. This book modeled mathematics teachers’ use and non use of technology in teaching using variables such as: beliefs of mathematics teachers about teaching and learning of mathematics with or without technology, barriers to computer use and professional development undertaken by teachers with technology. It also contains a comprehensive discussion of learning theories that are useful in teaching mathematics with technology. The prospective and experienced mathematics teachers interviewed shared their teaching experiences when to use and not use technology. Praise for the First Edition “ …beautiful and well worth the reading … with many exercises and a good bibliography, this book will fascinate both students and teachers.” Mathematics Teacher Fibonacci and Lucas Numbers with Applications, Volume I, Second Edition provides a user-friendly and historical approach to the many fascinating properties of Fibonacci and Lucas numbers, which have intrigued amateurs and professionals for centuries. Offering an in-depth study of the topic, this book includes exciting applications that provide many opportunities to explore and experiment. In addition, the book includes a historical survey of the development of Fibonacci and Lucas numbers, with biographical sketches of important figures in the field. Each chapter features a wealth of examples, as well as numeric and theoretical exercises that avoid using extensive and time-consuming proofs of theorems.
