Book excerpt: Murder at sea. No survivors, no evidence, no loose ends. Only a boatload of cash left for the taking. In this explosive novel from the author of the Travis McGee series, nothing is certain—not with enough money at stake to change a dozen lives . . . or end them. Introduction by Dean Koontz Crissy Harkinson knows all about the cash that left the Gold Coast of Florida, headed for the Bahamas on board a pleasure boat. It came from Texas, unrecorded, intended as a bribe. Now it is Crissy’s last chance for the big score she’s been working toward for years, using her brains and her body. Then other people get involved, including a Texas lawyer too cool to commit himself to anything or anybody, a beautiful Cuban maid who might not be as silly as she seems, and a pitifully broken girl, adrift and unconscious in a tiny boat on the giant blue river of the Gulf Stream. Turns out these are shark-infested waters. And none of them are going down without a fight. Praise for John D. MacDonald and The Last One Left “As a young writer, all I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me.”—Dean Koontz “A stunning adventure.”—Chicago Tribune “John D. MacDonald created a staggering quantity of wonderful books, each rich with characterization, suspense, and an almost intoxicating sense of place.”—Jonathan Kellerman

Book excerpt: 'Absolutely amazing... a cross between The Road by Cormac McCarthy and The Walking Dead' Eoin Colfer 'You'll be terrified, fascinated and above all, uplifted by Orpen - a heroine to rival Philip Pullman's Lyra or The Passage's Amy' Stylist Raised by her mother and Maeve on Slanbeg, an island off the west coast of Ireland, Orpen has a childhood of love and stories by the fireside. But the stories grow darker, and the training begins. Ireland has been devoured by a ravening menace known as the skrake, and though Slanbeg is safe for now, the women must always be ready to run, or to fight. When Maeve is bitten, Orpen is faced with a dilemma: kill Maeve before her transformation is complete, or try to get help. So Orpen sets off, with Maeve in a wheelbarrow and her dog at her side, in the hope of finding other survivors, and a cure. It is a journey that will test Orpen to her limits, on which she will learn who she really is, who she really loves, and how to imagine a future in a world that ended before she was born.

Download or read book Resources for Teaching Discrete Mathematics written by Brian Hopkins and published by MAA. This book was released on 2009 with total page 323 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Resources for Teaching Discrete Mathematics presents nineteen classroom tested projects complete with student handouts, solutions, and notes to the instructor. Topics range from a first day activity that motivates proofs to applications of discrete mathematics to chemistry, biology, and data storage. Other projects provide: supplementary material on classic topics such as the towers of Hanoi and the Josephus problem, how to use a calculator to explore various course topics, how to employ Cuisenaire rods to examine the Fibonacci numbers and other sequences, and how you can use plastic pipes to create a geodesic dome. The book contains eleven history modules that allow students to explore topics in their original context. Sources range from eleventh century Chinese figures that prompted Leibniz to write on binary arithmetic, to a 1959 article on automata theory. Excerpts include: Pascal's "Treatise on the Arithmetical Triangle," Hamilton's "Account of the Icosian Game," and Cantor's (translated) "Contributions to the Founding of the Theory of Transfinite Numbers." Five articles complete the book. Three address extensions of standard discrete mathematics content: an exploration of historical counting problems with attention to discovering formulas, a discussion of how computers store graphs, and a survey connecting the principle of inclusion-exclusion to Möbius inversion. Finally, there are two articles on pedagogy specifically related to discrete mathematics courses: a summary of adapting a group discovery method to larger classes, and a discussion of using logic in encouraging students to construct proofs.

Book excerpt: THE BEST LAID PLAN is a plan that is well planned, and has been laid out since the beginning. The High King and the Commissioner planned it all. When the battle reached its height and the two friends were called upon to do their best, they could not fail, they had to succeed. After all the traveling they knew that the most important thing was to deliver the satchels to the King. Tsami knew they must contain vital battle plans that the High King must have at all costs. After all he was always secretly with them, whenever they were stuck, he always seemed to send help, and he always knew where they were. Something always ate at them though, and was in fact suggested by Tsado, why, if the High King was so powerful, couldn't he deliver them himself? Who is Old Count Nick? He seems to be more than a match for their puny weapons, or is he? The King's Courtroom. Why does it look so familiar, his courtiers, he knows them surely!

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Using the latest research, this book provides an insight into how learning in mathematics can be improved through a lesson study approach. This highly practical resource explores the research and theory that underpins lesson study, and shows the significant impact it can have on teacher development. Divided into ten accessible main chapters that focus in depth on an individual mathematics lesson, each chapter provides research and background to the lesson, an outline of key features, a detailed description and analysis of the lesson in practice, post-lesson discussions and reflections which generalise from the experience, as well as links to helpful resources. Some of the key topics explored include: Fractions Proportional relationships Probability and statistics Geometry Modelling Algebra Dialogic reasoning. Understanding Lesson Study for Mathematics is the perfect resource for all mathematics teachers, trainee teachers, and professional developers who are looking to develop the use of lesson study in their own practice or for those simply seeking new inspiring ideas for the mathematics classroom.
Download or read book Knowledge by Agreement written by Martin Kusch and published by Oxford University Press on Demand. This book was released on 2004 with total page 303 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Knowledge by Agreement defends the ideas that knowledge is a social status (like money, or marriage), and that knowledge is primarily the possession of groups rather than individuals. Part I develops a new theory of testimony. It breaks with the traditional view according to which testimony isnot, except accidentally, a generative source of knowledge. One important consequence of the new theory is a rejection of attempts to globally justify trust in the words of others. Part II proposes a communitarian theory of empirical knowledge. Martin Kusch argues that empirical belief can acquirethe status of knowledge only by being shared with others, and that all empirical beliefs presuppose social institutions. As a result all knowledge is essentially political. Part III defends some of the controversial premises and consequences of Parts I and II: the community-dependence ofnormativity, epistemological and semantic relativism, anti-realism, and a social conception of objectivity.Martin Kusch's bold approach to epistemology is a challenge to philosophy and will arouse interest in the wider academic world.

Book excerpt: For almost a thousand years, the One Nation has been at peace, wiser for the mistakes of The Fortunate—the oppressive, power-mad faction of humanity who once claimed that the earth could sustain us all, supporting their abuses and greed without crumbling, forever. They were wrong and the price was paid. In those perilous, long-ago days, the Lion of the Forson, born of The Lesser—those forced to serve The Fortunate in their selfish endeavours—drew upon deep powers to reshape the Earth, and the One Nation was created, on a foundation of freedom, responsibility, and a respect for the world and all living things. The Fortunate were trapped beneath the cold and ice of Heldig Fengsel, a prison that prophecy warns will fall once a thousand years have passed. Now, with the release of the Fortunate fast approaching, the descendants of The Lesser anxiously await the return of the Lion and her Pride, which the prophecy says will occur when they are needed once more, as the last line of defence against forces of darkness that threaten to tip the world back into subjugation and destruction.
