'Hollie Grant, trainer to Deliciously Ella and Melissa Hemsley, is the new body coach on the block' Style 'The Model Method's effective combination of recipes and workouts will leave you feeling stronger, healthier and happier. Hollie is one of the best task-masters on the fitness scene, with a refreshing, balanced approach' Sweaty Betty Nourish, sweat and strengthen your way to lifelong wellness with award-winning Pilates instructor and chef Hollie Grant's balanced recipes and workouts. Hollie started The Model Method online plan after years of teaching her private clients so anyone can carry out the plan, anywhere. This beautiful book will follow on from the plan, showing the reader how to Nourish, Sweat and Strengthen for a healthier, stronger lifestyle. Nourish will provide readers with delicious and balanced recipes with easy-to-source ingredients to encourage readers to eat from all the food groups unless medically advised not to. As a former chef Hollie is strongly against 'diets' and feels that we should eat to nourish our bodies, not starve them. The Sweat part of the plan will be split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses. All the workouts will include elements of both Pilates and HIIT. Pilates is amazing at toning and fixing postural issues but does not address the incredible health benefits you tend to only get from HIIT (including reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity). Strengthen provides Pilates exercises and descriptions of technique, progressions and regressions, muscles activated and why you would carry out that exercise. The book is designed to be personalised so will also teach the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them. Above all, The Model Method is about how our bodies function and perform, rather than how they look, in order to encourage a healthy relationship with food and exercise.

This monograph serves as a resource book on the Model Method. The main purpose is to make explicit how the Model Method is used to develop students' understanding of fundamental mathematics concepts and proficiency in solving basic mathematics word problems. Through the construction of a pictorial model to represent the known and unknown quantities and their relationships in a problem, students gain better understanding of the problem and develop their abilities in mathematical thinking and problem solving. This would provide a strong foundation for the learning of matheatics from the primary to secondary levels and beyond. This monograph also features the Mathematics Framework of the Singapore mathematics curriculum, and discusses the changes that it has undergone over the past two decades. These changes reflected the changing emphases, needs and challenges in the mathematics curriculum as we entered the 21s century.

From Model to Algebra

Algebra is fundamental in the learning of mathematics. In Singapore, students begin the learning of formal algebra in primary six (Singapore Ministry of Education, 2006a). In secondary school, algebra features prominently in the curriculum (Singapore Ministry of Education, 2006b). Prior to learning formal algebra, primary school students use the model method as one of the methods to solve word problems. The model method is one of the most recognised features of the Singapore mathematics curriculum (Singapore Ministry of Education, 2009). It has been found that the model method has allowed primary school students without access to formal algebra a means to represent and solve algebraic word problems (Ng & Lee, 2009). Research has indicated that students encounter a variety of difficulties in formal algebra. These include understanding the meaning of letters used in formal algebra (Kuchemann, 1981) and translating information in text into algebraic equations (e.g. Stacey & MacGregor, 2000). The use of concrete and pictorial representations has been found to help students in solving word problems (e.g. Lewis, 1989; Willis & Fuson, 1988). While the model method has helped students solve word problems using pictorial representations, such representations are seldom harnessed for beginning students in formal algebra to acquire skills in algebraic manipulation. This book aims to do the latter. There has been much evidence that the model method can be integrated with the algebraic method (Kho, 1987, 2005, 2007; Beckmann, 2004). Secondary school teachers have been trained to show the relationship between the model method and the algebraic method (Kho, 2007). This book fleshes out this approach using topics in lower secondary algebra. This book focuses on helping students develop a strong foundation in algebraic manipulation. Basic algebraic manipulations including writing, evaluating, expanding, simplifying, and factorising algebraic expressions and solving algebraic equations are introduced pictorially. While it is not the intention that students to always rely on pictorial representations when doing algebra, the model method serves as a good starting point for students to learn algebraic manipulation meaningfully. It is hoped that this book will provide teachers with a resource to help students make the transition from the model method to formal algebra. As for students who find formal algebra daunting, this book serves as a bridge.

The Stack Model Method—An Intuitive and Creative Approach to Solving Word Problems (Grades 3–4) is the first title of a two-book series in Singapore math publishing, which comprehensively reveals the beauty and power of the stack model method as an intuitive and creative problem-solving strategy in solving non-routine questions and challenging word problems. Like the Singapore's bar model method, the stack model method allows word problems that were traditionally read in higher grades to be set in lower grades. The stack model method empowers younger readers with the higher-order thinking skills needed to solve word problems much earlier than they would normally acquire in school. Singapore's stack model method is a more creative and intuitive visualization problem-solving strategy than the bar model method. Brain-unfriendly word problems that are bar-model-unfriendly tend to lend themselves easily to the stack model method. Features of the Singapore math playbook are: ● Look-See Proofs for Kids ● Visible Thinking in Mathematics ● Advanced Visual Literacy ● Creative and Higher-Order Thinking Skills ● Alternative Solutions and Thought Processes The Stack Model Method would benefit all grades 3–4 students, teachers, and parents, as they acquaint themselves with this visualization problem-solving strategy to solve both routine and non-routine questions, while indirectly helping them to enhance their creative thinking and problem-solving skills in mathematics. Learn what the best grades 3–4 students in Singapore do in elementary math—you too can learn to solve the types of challenging questions they deal with every day in local schools and tuition centers island-wide.

This collection of essays deals with three clusters of problems in the philo sophy of science: scientific method, conceptual models, and ontological underpinnings. The disjointedness of topics is more apparent than real, since the whole book is concerned with the scientific knowledge of fact. Now, the aim of factual knowledge is the conceptual grasping of being, and this understanding is provided by theories of whatever there may be. If the theories are testable and specific, such as a theory of a particular chemical reaction, then they are often called 'theoretical models' and clas sed as scientific. If the theories are extremely general, like a theory of syn thesis and dissociation without any reference to a particular kind of stuff, then they may be called 'metaphysical' - as well as 'scientific' if they are consonant with science. Between these two extremes there is a whole gamut of kinds of factual theories. Thus the entire spectrum should be dominated by the scientific method, quite irrespective of the subject matter. This is the leitmotiv of the present book. The introductory chapter, on method in the philosophy of science, tackles the question 'Why don't scientists listen to their philosophers?'.

Finite Element Method in Machining Processes provides a concise study on the way the Finite Element Method (FEM) is used in the case of manufacturing processes, primarily in machining. The basics of this kind of modeling are detailed to create a reference that will provide guidelines for those who start to study this method now, but also for scientists already involved in FEM and want to expand their research. A discussion on FEM, formulations, and techniques currently in use is followed up by machining case studies. Orthogonal cutting, oblique cutting, 3D simulations for turning and milling, grinding, and state-of-the-art topics such as high speed machining and micromachining are explained with relevant examples. This is all supported by a literature review and a reference list for further study. As FEM is a key method for researchers in the manufacturing and especially in the machining sector, Finite Element Method in Machining Processes is a key reference for students studying manufacturing processes but also for industry professionals.
