Mathematisches Denken

Vom Vergnügen am Umgang mit Zahlen

View: 8702

Dieses Buch wendet sich zuallererst an intelligente Schüler ab 14 Jahren sowie an Studienanfänger, die sich für Mathematik interessieren und etwas mehr als die Anfangsgründe dieser Wissenschaft kennenlernen möchten. Es gibt inzwischen mehrere Bücher, die eine ähnliche Zielstellung verfolgen. Besonders gern erinnere ich mich an das Werk Vom Einmaleins zum Integral von Colerus, das ich in meiner Kindheit las. Es beginnt mit der folgenden entschiedenen Feststellung: Die Mathematik ist eine Mausefalle. Wer einmal in dieser Falle gefangen sitzt, findet selten den Ausgang, der zurück in seinen vormathematischen Seelenzustand leitet. ([49], S. 7) Einige dieser Bücher sind im Anhang zusammengestellt und kommen tiert. Tatsächlich ist das Unternehmen aber so lohnenswert und die Anzahl der schon vorhandenen Bücher doch so begrenzt, daß ich mich nicht scheue, ihnen ein weiteres hinzuzufügen. An zahlreichen amerikanischen Universitäten gibt es Vorlesungen, die gemeinhin oder auch offiziell als ,,Mathematik für Schöngeister'' firmieren. Dieser Kategorie ist das vorliegende Buch nicht zuzuordnen. Statt dessen soll es sich um eine ,,Mathematik für Mathematiker'' handeln, für Mathema tiker freilich, die noch sehr wenig von der Mathematik verstehen. Weshalb aber sollte nicht der eine oder andere von ihnen eines Tages den Autor dieses 1 Buches durch seine Vorlesungen in Staunen versetzen? Ich hoffe, daß auch meine Mathematikerkollegen Freude an dem Werk haben werden, und ich würde mir wünschen, daß auch andere Leser, bei denen die Wertschätzung für die Mathematik stärker als die Furcht vor ihr ist, Gefallen an ihm finden mögen.

Die 'Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M)' der International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) war die erste international-vergleichende Studie, die den tertiären Bildungssektor mit standardisierten Testungen in den Blick nahm. Die Studie verglich die am Ende der Mathematiklehrerausbildung erreichten Kompetenzen von Lehrkräften für die Primarstufe und die Sekundarstufe I in 16 Staaten. Deutschland beteiligte sich mit repräsentativen Stichproben von Mathematiklehrkräften für die Primarstufe bzw. die Sekundarstufe I im letzten Jahr ihrer Ausbildung aus allen Bundesländern sowie einer repräsentativen Stichprobe von Lehrerausbildenden in entsprechenden Ausbildungsgängen. Diese Skalendokumentation enthält - soweit freigegeben - die Instrumente aller TEDS-M-Befragungen und -Testungen in deutscher und englischer Sprache (einschl. Kodierleitfäden). Für die Verwendung in weiteren Studien werden die Fragen zur Person ebenso dokumentiert wie die Fragen zu den Überzeugungen und Lerngelegenheiten der angehenden Lehrkräfte sowie der Lehrerausbildenden. Die Skalendokumentation stellt so auch ein unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel dar, um mit den kürzlich freigegebenen TEDS-M-Datensätzen Sekundäranalysen durchführen zu können. Darüber hinaus können der Skalendokumentation die wichtigsten Kennwerte zu den TEDS-M-Ergebnissen entnommen werden: Häufigkeiten, Mittelwerte, Standardfehler, verschiedene Verteilungsmaße und die Anteile fehlender Werte.

"R - Einführung durch angewandte Statistik gibt eine Einführung in die statistische Programmumgebung R sowie in grundlegende statistische Verfahren und zeigt, wie diese in R umgesetzt werden. Das Buch folgt einem alternativen didaktischen Ansatz: ausgehend von Datentypen und dazugehörigen Fragestellungen wird auf praxisorientierte, nicht-technische Weise eine integrierte Darstellung deskriptiver und analytischer Methoden gegeben. In jedem Abschnitt werden an einem klar strukturierten Beispiel typische Methoden der Datenbeschreibung und der Auswertung in R demonstriert. Die Ergebnisse werden nicht nur statistisch sondern auch inhaltlich interpretiert. Dies ermöglicht den LeserInnen einen einfachen Zugang und die Umsetzung auf eigene Problemstellungen." -- Herausgeber.

Die Simpsons sind nicht nur „eines der intelligentesten Kunstwerke unserer Zeit“ (Daniel Kehlmann), sie stecken auch voller Mathematik! Spielerisch leicht und unterhaltsam lüftet Simon Singh die mathematischen Geheimnisse der erfolgreichsten TV-Serie der Welt. Ob Homer ein donutförmiges Universum entwirft, den berühmten Fermat‘schen Satz zu widerlegen scheint, oder Lisa als Baseballtrainerin den Geheimnissen der Statistik auf die Spur kommt: Der Bestsellerautor aus Großbritannien nimmt die Episoden der Simpsons zum Ausgangspunkt für eine Tour d’Horizon durch die Welt der Algebra und Geometrie. Ein Muss für Millionen Simpsons-Fans - und ein Buch, das die Mathematik ins Zentrum der Populärkultur rückt. „Simon Singh deckt auf, wie Simpsons-Fans jahrzehntelang klammheimlich Mathe-Unterricht erhielten. Ein brillantes Buch.“ David X. Cohen, Autor von Futurama und Die Simpsons "Sie glauben, dass sich Mathematik und Humor widersprechen? Simon Singh beweist das Gegenteil!" Christoph Drösser, Journalist der Zeit
