Geographic data models are digital frameworks that describe the location and characteristics of things in the world around us. With a geographic information system, we can use these models as lenses to see, interpret, and analyze the infinite complexity of our natural and man-made environments. With the geodatabase, a new geographic data model introduced with ArcInfo 8, you can extend significantly the level of detail and range of accuracy with which you can model geographic reality in a database environment.

The third edition of Cynthia Young's College Algebra brings together all the elements that have allowed instructors and learners to successfully "bridge the gap" between classroom instruction and independent homework by overcoming common learning barriers and building confidence in students' ability to do mathematics. Written in a clear, single voice that speaks to students and mirrors how instructors communicate in lecture, Young's hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners. Varied exercise types and modeling projects keep the learning fresh and motivating. Young continues her tradition of fostering a love for succeeding in mathematics by introducing inquiry-based learning projects in this edition, providing learners an opportunity to master the material with more freedom while reinforcing mathematical skills and intuition. The seamless integration of Cynthia Young's College Algebra 3rd edition with WileyPLUS, a research-based, online environment for effective teaching and learning, continues Young's vision of building student confidence in mathematics because it takes the guesswork out of studying by providing them with a clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, and whether they did it right. WileyPLUS sold separately from text.

The authors of this text demonstrate using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators.

Offering a solid introduction to the entire modeling process, A FIRST COURSE IN MATHEMATICAL MODELING, 4th Edition delivers an excellent balance of theory and practice, giving students hands-on experience developing and sharpening their skills in the modeling process. Throughout the book, students practice key facets of modeling, including creative and empirical model construction, model analysis, and model research. The authors apply a proven six-step problem-solving process to enhance students’ problem-solving capabilities -- whatever their level. Rather than simply emphasizing the calculation step, the authors first ensure that students learn how to identify problems, construct or select models, and figure out what data needs to be collected. By involving students in the mathematical process as early as possible -- beginning with short projects -- the book facilitates their progressive development and confidence in mathematics and modeling.

Anlässlich des 70. Geburtstages von Werner Blum wollen wir mit dieser Festschrift seine großen Verdienste für die Mathematikdidaktik würdigen und haben dazu aus der Fülle der von ihm bearbeiteten Themen das Gebiet „Modellieren im Mathematikunterricht“ ausgewählt. Der Band würdigt zum einen in einer breiten Palette von Beiträgen von nationalen und internationalen Expertinnen und Experten aus dem Bereich Modellieren Werner Blums beeindruckende Leistungen in diesem Bereich und seine entscheidenden Impulse zu dessen Weiterentwicklung. Zum anderen gibt der Band in 23 Kapiteln einen Überblick über die aktuelle nationale und internationale Diskussion zum Modellieren im Mathematikunterricht und zeigt auf, welche enormen Fortschritte das Themengebiet in den letzten Jahrzehnten gemacht hat und dass neben theoretischen Arbeiten insbesondere empirische Arbeiten zur Weiterentwicklung des Forschungsgebiets beigetragen haben. Aber auch die Verbreitung von Realitätsbezügen und Modellieren in Schulen wird in den Beiträgen deutlich, zu denen Werner Blum einen entscheidenden Beitrag geliefert hat.

Sustainable Investing is fast becoming an essential method ofgenerating long-term returns, moving beyond the negative approachesto socially responsible investing that have dominated thefield. This book, our second on the subject, provides over 15case studies of leading global investors and companiesdemonstrating how they successfully apply sustainability aspects totheir core strategies. Learn from prominent thought leadersDan Esty and Paul Hawken among others who have contributed keychapters. Our chapter on performance shows clearly how thesestrategies have been working once negative approaches are parsedout by those examining fund returns. This book also examinesin great depth what data exists, and what's on the horizon, to bestmeasure & capture sustainability successfully. Regionalperspectives, including 3 chapters on Asia, and focuses on Canada,Australia, Africa & India are also included, as is a lookacross asset classes. Sustainable Investing, when performed with a positiveperspective, has been outperforming the mainstream, unlike negativeapproaches designed to match benchmark returns. Fromeco-efficiency to sustainability-driven innovation and beyond,investors of all shapes & sizes need to know how best toposition themselves for the radical market shifts underway.
