Group-Centered Prevention Programs for At-Risk Students by Elaine Clanton Harpine

By Elaine Clanton Harpine

School psychologists, counselors, and educators within the K-12 atmosphere face the daunting accountability of discovering stability among mandated checking out, scholars’ mental-health issues, and extra educational aid for at-risk scholars. One method to this challenge is to enforce a school-based psychological health and wellbeing strategy that mixes studying and counseling wishes right into a unmarried application. various kinds of winning courses can be found, even though week-long extensive courses have lately elevated in popularity.

Group-Centered Prevention courses for At-Risk Students makes a speciality of the improvement of this sort of week-long prevention software, and gives pros with step by step instructions to create their very own software. It additionally specializes in using group-centered interventions as a chance to avoid at-risk behaviors as a way of correcting or altering dysfunctional behavior.

This hugely readable quantity addresses such demanding concerns as:

  • Using self-reflection to educate writing skills.
  • Increasing interpersonal interplay whereas honing etiquette.
  • Enhancing team attractiveness and studying comprehension.
  • Rebuilding self-efficacy via expanding notice popularity and interpreting skills.

With its stable learn origin mixed with transparent, sensible software descriptions, this quantity is a necessary addition to the libraries of researchers and practitioners alike within the disciplines of faculty psychology, schooling, social paintings, psychotherapy and counseling, and medical baby psychology.

Intermediate Algebra (11th Edition) by Marvin L. Bittinger

By Marvin L. Bittinger

The Bittinger Worktext sequence replaced the face of developmental schooling with the advent of objective-based worktexts that offered math one thought at a time. This strategy allowed readers to appreciate the reason at the back of each one inspiration ahead of working towards the linked talents after which relocating directly to the subsequent subject. With this revision, Marv Bittinger maintains to target development good fortune via conceptual realizing, whereas additionally assisting readers with caliber functions, routines, and new assessment and research fabrics to assist them observe and maintain their wisdom.

Höhere Mathematik für Ingenieure: Band II Lineare Algebra by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Friedrich Wille, Prof. Dr. rer. nat.

By Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Friedrich Wille, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Herbert Haf, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Klemens Burg

Der vorliegende Band eleven der Höheren Mathematik für Ingenieure enthält eine in sich geschlossene Darstellung der "Linearen Algebra" mit vielfältigen Bezügen zur Technik und Naturwissenschaft. Adressaten sind in erster Linie Ingenieurstudenten, aber auch Studenten der Ange­ wandten Mathematik und Physik, etwa der Richtungen Technomathematik, mathe­ matische Informatik, theoretische Physik. Sicherlich wird auch der "reine" Mathe­ matiker für ihn Interessantes in dem Buch finden. Der Band ist - bis auf wenige Querverbindungen - unabhängig vom Band I "Ana­ lysis" gestaltet, so daß guy einen Kursus über Ingenieurmathematik auch mit dem vorliegenden Buch beginnen kann. (Beim Studium der Elektrotechnik wird z. B. gerne mit Linearer Algebra begonnen.) Vorausgesetzt werden lediglich Kenntnisse aus der Schulmathematik. Auch die einzelnen Abschnitte des Buches sind mit einer gewissen Unabhängigkeit voneinander konzipiert, so daß Quereinstiege möglich sind. Dem Leser, der schon einen ersten Kursus über Lineare Algebra absolviert hat, steht in diesem Bande ein Nachschlagewerk zur Verfügung, welches ihm in der Praxis oder beim Examen eine Hilfe ist. Die Bedeutung der Linearen Algebra für Technik und Naturwissenschaft ist in die­ sem Jahrhundert stark gestiegen. Insbesondere ist die Matrizen-Rechnung, die sich erst in den dreißiger Jahren in Physik und Technik durchzusetzen begann, heute ein starkes Hilfsmittel in der Hand des Ingenieurs. Darüber hinaus führt die Synthese von Linearer Algebra und research zur Funktionsanalysis, die gerade in den letzten Jahrzehnten zu einem leistungsfähigen theoretischen Instrumentarium für Natur­ wissenschaft und Technik geworden ist.

Bose Algebras: The Complex and Real Wave Representations by Torben T. Nielsen

By Torben T. Nielsen

The arithmetic of Bose-Fock areas is equipped at the thought of a commutative algebra and this algebraic constitution makes the speculation beautiful either to mathematicians without history in physics and to theorectical and mathematical physicists who will straight away realize that the usual set-up doesn't vague the direct relevance to theoretical physics. the well known advanced and genuine wave representations look right here as normal outcomes of the fundamental mathematical constitution - a mathematician conversant in class idea will regard those representations as functors. Operators generated via creations and annihilations in a given Bose algebra are proven to provide upward push to a brand new Bose algebra of operators yielding the Weyl calculus of pseudo-differential operators. The ebook may be invaluable to mathematicians drawn to research in infinitely many dimensions or within the arithmetic of quantum fields and to theoretical physicists who can cash in on using an efficient and rigrous Bose formalism.

Algebra IX: Finite Groups of Lie Type Finite-Dimensional by R. W. Carter (auth.), A. I. Kostrikin, I. R. Shafarevich

By R. W. Carter (auth.), A. I. Kostrikin, I. R. Shafarevich (eds.)

The finite teams of Lie kind are of primary mathematical significance and the matter of knowing their irreducible representations is of serious curiosity. The illustration conception of those teams over an algebraically closed box of attribute 0 was once built by means of P.Deligne and G.Lusztig in 1976 and as a result in a sequence of papers by way of Lusztig culminating in his publication in 1984. the aim of the 1st a part of this e-book is to offer an outline of the topic, with no together with distinct proofs. the second one half is a survey of the constitution of finite-dimensional department algebras with many define proofs, giving the fundamental idea and techniques of development after which is going directly to a deeper research of department algebras over valuated fields. An account of the multiplicative constitution and diminished K-theory offers contemporary paintings at the topic, together with that of the authors. therefore it kinds a handy and extremely readable creation to a box which within the final twenty years has obvious a lot progress.
