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.

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 of generating long-term returns, moving beyond the negative approaches to socially responsible investing that have dominated the field. This book, our second on the subject, provides over 15 case studies of leading global investors and companies demonstrating how they successfully apply sustainability aspects to their core strategies. Learn from prominent thought leaders Dan Esty and Paul Hawken among others who have contributed key chapters. Our chapter on performance shows clearly how these strategies have been working once negative approaches are parsed out by those examining fund returns. This book also examines in great depth what data exists, and what's on the horizon, to best measure & capture sustainability successfully. Regional perspectives, including 3 chapters on Asia, and focuses on Canada, Australia, Africa & India are also included, as is a look across asset classes. Sustainable Investing, when performed with a positive perspective, has been outperforming the mainstream, unlike negative approaches designed to match benchmark returns. From eco-efficiency to sustainability-driven innovation and beyond, investors of all shapes & sizes need to know how best to position themselves for the radical market shifts underway.
