Von den Bergen Idahos nach Cambridge – der unwahrscheinliche »Bildungsweg« der Tara Westover. Tara Westover ist 17 Jahre alt, als sie zum ersten Mal eine Schulklasse betritt. Zehn Jahre später kann sie eine beeindruckende akademische Laufbahn vorweisen. Aufgewachsen im ländlichen Amerika, befreit sie sich aus einer ärmlichen, archaischen und von Paranoia und Gewalt geprägten Welt durch – Bildung, durch die Aneignung von Wissen, das ihr so lange vorenthalten worden war. Die Berge Idahos sind Taras Heimat, sie lebt als Kind im Einklang mit der grandiosen Natur, mit dem Wechsel der Jahreszeiten – und mit den Gesetzen, die ihr Vater aufstellt. Er ist ein fundamentalistischer Mormone, vom baldigen Ende der Welt überzeugt und voller Misstrauen gegenüber dem Staat, von dem er sich verfolgt sieht. Tara und ihre Geschwister gehen nicht zur Schule, sie haben keine Geburtsurkunden, und ein Arzt wird selbst bei fürchterlichsten Verletzungen nicht gerufen. Und die kommen häufig vor, denn die Kinder müssen bei der schweren Arbeit auf Vaters Schrottplatz helfen, um über die Runden zu kommen. Taras Mutter, die einzige Hebamme in der Gegend, heilt die Wunden mit ihren Kräutern. Nichts ist dieser Welt ferner als Bildung. Und doch findet Tara die Kraft, sich auf die Aufnahmeprüfung fürs College vorzubereiten, auch wenn sie quasi bei null anfangen muss ... Wie Tara Westover sich aus dieser Welt befreit, überhaupt erst einmal ein Bewusstsein von sich selbst entwickelt, um den schmerzhaften Abnabelungsprozess von ihrer Familie bewältigen zu können, das beschreibt sie in diesem ergreifenden und wunderbar poetischen Buch. » Befreit wirft ein Licht auf einen Teil unseres Landes, den wir zu oft übersehen. Tara Westovers eindringliche Erzählung — davon, einen Platz für sich selbst in der Welt zu finden, ohne die Verbindung zu ihrer Familie und ihrer geliebten Heimat zu verlieren — verdient es, weithin gelesen zu werden.« J.D.

The jargon associated with Microsoft Excel's pivot tables ("n-dimensional cross tabulations") makes them look complex, but they're really no more than an easy way to build concise, flexible summaries of long lists of raw values. If you're working with hundreds (or hundreds of thousands) of rows, then pivot tables are the best way to look at the same information in different ways, summarize data on the fly, and spot trends and relationships. This handy guide teaches you how to use Excel's most powerful feature to crunch large amounts of data, without having to write new formulas, copy and paste cells, or reorganize rows and columns. You can download the sample workbook to follow along with the author's examples. - Create pivot tables from worksheet databases. - Rearrange pivot tables by dragging, swapping, and nesting fields. - Customize pivot tables with styles, layouts, totals, and subtotals. - Combine numbers, dates, times, or text values into custom groups. - Calculate common statistics or create custom formulas. - Filter data that you don't want to see. - Create and customize pivot charts. - Unlink a pivot table from its source data. - Control references to pivot table cells. - Plenty of tips, tricks, and timesavers. - Fully cross-referenced, linked, and searchable. Contents 1. Pivot Table Basics 2. Nesting Fields 3. Grouping Items 4. Calculations and Custom Formulas 5. Filtering Data 6. Charting Pivot Tables 7. Tricks with Pivot Tables

Can a set be a member of itself? How do we know that the square root of 2 is irrational? Can a graph really represent a function accurately? Is a function just a rule? Does canceling (crossing out) terms mask important algebraic properties? This entirely practical book is for the student who wants a complete command of the prerequisite material on the first day of calculus class. Success in calculus depends on having a reasonable command of all that went before, yet most precalculus students are taught only simple tools and techniques, leaving them with a superficial understanding of problem-solving. Tim Hill explains why things are true and encourages students to go beyond merely memorizing ways of solving a few problems to pass exams. - Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems. - Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks. - Treats the subject as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques. - Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking. - Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises. - Provides exceptional preparation for a calculus course.- Includes problems (with all solutions) that extend your knowledge rather than merely reinforce it.

The mathematics of counting permutations and combinations is required knowledge for probability, statistics, professional gambling, and many other fields. But counting is hard. Students find it hard. Teachers find it hard. And in the end the only way to learn is to do many problems. Tim Hill's learn-by-example approach presents counting concepts and problems of gradually increasing difficulty. If you become lost or confused, then you can back up a bit for clarification. With practice, you'll develop the ability to decompose complex problems and then assemble the partial solutions to arrive at the final answer. The result: learn in a few weeks what conventional schools stretch into months. Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems. Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks. Treats counting as a logically coherent discipline, not as a disjointed collection of techniques. Restores proofs to their proper place to remove doubt, convey insight, and encourage precise logical thinking. Omits digressions, excessive formalities, and repetitive exercises. Provides exceptional preparation for probability and statistics courses. Includes problems (with all solutions) that extend your knowledge rather than merely reinforce it. Contents 1. The Sum Rule and Product Rule 2. Permutations 3. Combinations 4. The Binomial Theorem 5. Combinations with Repetition 6. Summary and Solutions About the Author Tim Hill is a statistician living in Boulder, Colorado. He holds degrees in mathematics and statistics from Stanford University and the University of Colorado. Tim has written self-teaching guides for Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Precalculus, Advanced Precalculus, Permutations & Combinations, Mathematics of Money, and Excel Pivot Tables.

Also - 782 - 287 = 495, dann 495 + 594. Und schon ist man mitten in der Wunderwelt der Mathematik, denn das Ergebnis ist immer - 1089. Mit solchen und vielen weiteren Beispielen aus Alltag, Geschichte und Wissenschaft gelingt es David Acheson, die faszinierende Welt der Mathematik zu erschließen - ein geistreicher Überblick, eine für jeden verständliche Einführung.
