Description : This thorough and practical guide to teaching kindergarten through sixth grade level mathematics is a perfect combination of a math methods text and resource book for the pre-service and in-service elementary school teacher. The text's organization uses the NCTM standards as its overarching framework; a rich variety of chapter activities reinforces the standards, and includes many examples of cooperative learning strategies. Content chapters first develop a math topic, and then extend the same topic, thus providing foundational material for primary grades and even more appropriate material for upper elementary and intermediate grades. Other useful features highlight misconceptions often held about math operations and concepts, ways to be inclusive of various cultural backgrounds, findings from key research in mathematics, and key technology resources. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Description : This book is about a new approach in the field of computational linguistics related to the idea of constructing n-grams in non-linear manner, while the traditional approach consists in using the data from the surface structure of texts, i.e., the linear structure. In this book, we propose and systematize the concept of syntactic n-grams, which allows using syntactic information within the automatic text processing methods related to classification or clustering. It is a very interesting example of application of linguistic information in the automatic (computational) methods. Roughly speaking, the suggestion is to follow syntactic trees and construct n-grams based on paths in these trees. There are several types of non-linear n-grams; future work should determine, which types of n-grams are more useful in which natural language processing (NLP) tasks. This book is intended for specialists in the field of computational linguistics. However, we made an effort to explain in a clear manner how to use n-grams; we provide a large number of examples, and therefore we believe that the book is also useful for graduate students who already have some previous background in the field.
