Description : Annotation This series helps teachers use the imaginative ideas in children s books for math lessons. Organized into four grade-level collections to respond to teachers specific classroom needs, this series includes favorite lessons based on a wide variety of children s books. Teachers will appreciate these books for the enjoyment and excitement they bring to math instruction. With introductions by Marilyn Burns, these books include vignettes of lessons and samples of student work. These lessons, based on popular children s books, address major mathematical topics such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, geometry, algebraic thinking, number sense, and place value.
Description : PIC in Practice is a graded course based around the practical use of the PIC microcontroller through project work. Principles are introduced gradually, through hands-on experience, enabling students to develop their understanding at their own pace. Dave Smith has based the book on his popular short courses on the PIC for professionals, students and teachers at Manchester Metropolitan University. The result is a graded text, formulated around practical exercises, which truly guides the reader from square one. The book can be used at a variety of levels and the carefully graded projects make it ideal for colleges, schools and universities. Newcomers to the PIC will find it a painless introduction, whilst electronics hobbyists will enjoy the practical nature of this first course in microcontrollers. PIC in Practice introduces applications using the popular 16F84 device as well as the 16F627, 16F877, 12C508, 12C629 and 12C675. In this new edition excellent coverage is given to the 16F818, with additional information on writing and documenting software. Gentle introduction to using PICs for electronic applications Principles and programming introduced through graded projects Thoroughly up-to-date with new chapters on the 16F818 and writing and documenting programs
Description : The book can be used at a variety of levels. While the carefully graded practicals make it ideal for colleges and schools, many university students and professionals are also newcomers to PIC, so this book will provide a painless introduction for more advanced readers. In addition, electronics hobbyists will find this book to be an exciting introduction to the world of microcontrollers. *A practical guide for all newcomers to the PIC microcontroller *Discover microelectronics by building PIC circuits *Based on Manchester Metropolitan University's highly successful short courses on the PIC
