The book intended exclusively for the usage of students, teachers and persons who are related to competitive exams. The book is based on our experience over the past 8 years and design on the basis of current competitive level of Engineering like IIT JEE mains/ Advanced, MHT-CET, BITSAT + NTSE, KVPY, Olympiad, IIT Foundation + CAT and other state engineering exams in India, where 1194938 i.e. around 12 Lakh of students (Year 2016) write a single engineering exam. As an educator, I understand the student’s need of these topics and the difficulties faces by students in transition from standard 10th to 11th class. As students enter their 11th standard, they find a substantial change in the course content and level of difficulty. They find some totally new concepts of Mathematics, widely used in Physics and Chemistry. They may be completely unfamiliar with concepts of absolute value, Interval Methods, Set Notation, inequalities etc. The book has been prepared for them to learn the concepts of algebra from basic to advanced level of thinking. The book is prepared to serve as a bridge for 10th to 11th standards, CAT aspirants etc. Software engineers can also be in benefit in writing the code due to concepts clarity. The book contains the following Learning Methodology. (i) Basic concepts and easy learning. (ii) Necessary examples and experiments for beginners level to expert. (iii) Psychology of student’s brain and their thinking. (iv) Pictorial view of problems and solutions. (v) Challenging problems (Ultimate Finish – for Top All India Rankers between 1 - 500). (vi) Exercises and Assignments to test the understanding and growing knowledge. (vii) Sample Test Paper to have experience before actual exam. (viii) Puzzles and interactive learning to keep interest. (ix) How to make notes to up-to-date and add your thinking inside the book. (x) Archive of IIT-JEE Mains/Advanced. (xi) All types of questions (Single and Multi-correct, Integer Type, Comprehension, Assertion-reason, Matrix-Match) i.e Subjective and Objective both.

Perspectives on Transitions in Schooling and Instructional Practice examines student transitions between major levels of schooling, teacher transitions in instructional practice, and the intersection of these two significant themes in education research. Twenty-six leading international experts offer meaningful insights on current pedagogical practices, obstacles to effective transitions, and proven strategies for stakeholders involved in supporting students in transition. The book is divided into four sections, representing the four main transitions in formal schooling: Early Years (Home, Pre-school, and Kindergarten) to Early Elementary (Grades 1–3); Early Elementary to Late Elementary (Grades 4–8); Late Elementary to Secondary (Grades 9–12); and Secondary to Post-Secondary (College and University). A coda draws together over-arching themes from throughout the text to provide recommendations and a visual model that captures their interactions. Combining theoretical approaches with practical examples of school-based initiatives, this book will appeal to those involved in supporting either the student experience (both academically and emotionally) or teacher professional learning and growth.
The commonly held view is that extremely poor health hurts educational achievement. This study examined the possibility of biases in standard estimation of effects and illustrated empirically, based on Ghanaian Living Standard of Measurement Study data, that there was not a significant effect of child health on child cognitive achievement. Consideration was given to the endogenous determination of child health. Child health was determined by anthropometry. Cognitive achievement test scores and preschool ability measured schooling success and child endowments respectively. Household and community characteristics and sibling data were used to measure family and community fixed effects. The conclusion, based on ordinary least squares (OLS) estimation and instrumental variable level estimates, was that child health did not impact on child cognitive achievement. The differences between the instrumental variable estimates and the within family and within community estimates suggested bias. Four basic conclusions were drawn. 1) Considerable bias occurred in prior studies, because there was a failure to account for estimation problems. 2) Inclusion of instrumental variables, assumed to be independent of the disturbance term in the cognitive achievement production function, and without controls for simultaneity, suggested a downward bias. 3) The bias was upward when estimates with sibling data were accounted for. Unobserved family and community effects can cause upward biases. 4) Coefficients, which are supposed to represent the impact of child health on schooling, may not do so. In the discussion of model specification, it was pointed out that upward bias can occur with heterogeneity in preferences regarding child quality, in unobserved predetermined family endowments that affect production of child quality, and in unobserved predetermined community endowments that affect child quality production. The unobserved predetermined child characteristics affect both child health and cognitive achievement in the same direction. There can be unobserved heterogeneity in access to capital markets. The 2 stage least squares procedure was found to overstate the impact of child health and cause greater distortions than OLS estimates.
