Description : As the public and producers becomes more aware of the environmental and economic benefits of precision farming, there has been increased demand for quality training to accurately evaluate spatial variability within fields. Practical Mathematics in Precision Farming provides hand-on training and examples for certified crop consultants (CCAs), farmers, crop consultants, and students (both undergraduate and graduate) on how to conduct to conduct and analyze on-farm studies, write simple programs, use precision techniques to scout for pests and collect soil samples, develop management zones, determine the cost of production, assess the environmental consequences of precision techniques, understand soil test results, and develop site-specific nutrient and plant population algorithms. Using real agronomic examples, the reader is taught the crucial task of managing products and inputs for application at the right rate, place, and time.

Description : This book is a collection of papers presented at the conference “Forum Math-for-Industry 2014” for which the unifying theme was “Applications + Practical Conceptualization + Mathematics = fruitful Innovation” in October 2014. This epigram encapsulates the dynamics of the process that takes an application through to an innovation. Industrial mathematics can be viewed as the causal engine that implements the epigram by taking an Application such as input and convolving it with a mixture of Practical Conceptualization and Mathematics to generate a fruitful Innovation as output. The book illustrates various aspects of the two-way interaction between applications and their association highlighting how practical conceptualization assists with the linking of the question that encapsulates the current application to the relevant mathematics. The contents of this volume address productive and successful interaction between industry and mathematicians, as well as the cross-fertilization and collaboration that result when mathematics is involved with the advancement of science and technology.
Description : During the past 40 years, mathematical music theory has grown and developed in both the fields of music and mathematics. In music pedagogy, the need to analyze patterns of modern composition has produced Musical Set Theory, and the use of Group Theory and other modern mathematical structures have become almost as common as the application of mathematics in the fields of engineering or chemistry. Mathematicians have been developing stimulating ideas when exploring mathematical applications to established musical relations. Mathematics students have seen in Music in Mathematics courses, how their accumulated knowledge of abstract ideas can be applied to an important human activity while reinforcing their dexterity in Mathematics. Similarly, new general education courses in Music and Mathematics are being developed and are arising at the university level, as well as for high school and general audiences without requiring a sophisticated background in either music nor mathematics. Mathematical Music Theorists have also been developing exciting, creative courses for high school teachers and students of mathematics. These courses and projects have been implemented in the USA, in China, Ireland, France, Australia, and Spain.The objective of this volume is to share the motivation and content of some of these exciting, new Mathematical Theory and Music in Mathematics courses while contributing concrete materials to interested readers.
Description : Widely used throughout the construction trade, the 9th Edition of PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR CARPENTERS delivers the math skills every carpenter needs to be successful. Divided into short units, this combination book/workbook first explains essential math principles in straightforward, concise language, and then reinforces each with samples of problems common in the building and construction trade. Step-by-step solutions to the problems, as well as detailed illustrations, help readers understand the math concepts, visualize their application in everyday carpentry work, and perform the functions themselves. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Description : It is a common misconception that children on the autism spectrum find mathematics easy. In fact the opposite is true for some, and exposure to basic mathematics in the early years can be crucial in establishing the foundations for understanding later in life. This book provides practical strategies and tools for teaching key mathematics concepts to children with an autism spectrum disorder and other developmental delays. The authors emphasise the importance of incorporating a child's special interest into learning in order to help them engage fully with new concepts. Topics covered include colours, shapes, categories, numerals, sequencing, addition and subtraction and using money, and the book includes worksheets and activities for incorporating mathematics into daily living skills. This is an essential resource for teachers, teaching assistants and parents who wish to develop mathematics skills in children with an autism spectrum disorder and other developmental delays.
Description : From basic arithmetic to using formulas, this fully updated edition applies essential practical math skills directly to the field of heating and cooling technology. All math concepts use terminology specific to the HVAC-R trade to help technicians prepare for problems they will encounter on the job. The entire range of mathematics problems used in the field are covered - from whole numbers, fractions, ratio and proportion, to percentages, measures, formulas, and trigonometry. Useful practice opportunities in the book also help readers learn to write up estimates and bills.
