How Math Explains the World
16,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In How Math Explains the World, mathematician Stein reveals how seemingly arcane mathematical investigations and discoveries have led to bigger, more world-shaking insights into the nature of our world. In the four main sections of the book, Stein tells the stories of the mathematical thinkers who discerned some of the most fundamental aspects of our universe. From their successes and failures, delusions, and even duels, the trajectories of their innovations—and their impact on society—are traced in this fascinating narrative. Quantum mechanics, space-time, chaos theory and the workings of complex systems, and the impossibility of a 'perfect' democracy are all here. Stein's book is both mind-bending and practical, as he explains the best way for a salesman to plan a trip, examines why any thought you could have is imbedded in the number p , and—perhaps most importantly—answers one of the modern world's toughest questions: why the garage can never get your car repaired on time. Friendly, entertaining, and fun, How Math Explains the World is the first book by one of California's most popular math teachers, a veteran of both 'math for poets' and Princeton's Institute for Advanced Studies. And it's perfect for any reader wanting to know how math makes both science and the world tick.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Covers a wide range topics essential for all guitarists. Plenty of information and solid advice that a player can dip into as needed. There are many examples to practice with the backing tracks. A very useful tool to help you progress with your guitar playing.' Hedley Timbs BA(Mus), Grad.Dip. Teaching (New Zealand) 'Plenty of detail that goes into posture, hand position, thumb position, etc. The notation and strumming is really good here because it builds up in stages. In a lesson, you can introduce it in this way piece by piece and not overwhelm the student.' Michael Hanna, Grade 8 RS.Guitar - Larne Guitar School (N.Ireland) is comprehensive and clear with over 180 photographic examples, illustrations and purpose made diagrams. This guitar book includes 42 downloadable mp3 tracks of full band demo and backing track with the guitar removed for you to play over. Learn to Play Guitar bridges the gaps, explaining guitar techniques that can be taken for granted by more experienced guitar players. - To get you straight into playing music, numbers have been added underneath guitar tablature to assist with the rhythm. Later on, the rhythmical aspect of conventional music notation is covered so you can use it in conjunction with tablature. - Changing between chords and strumming are presented as separate subjects initially, so that you can develop coordination in each hand independently. They are then brought together starting with basic exercises, getting more advanced until there is a rhythm guitar musical piece to play. - The major scale, minor scale, major and minor pentatonic scales and basic major and minor chord construction are explained in terms of the fret-board and reinforced by musical pieces in various styles to make the learning process practical and enjoyable. - Fret-board layout, power chords, barre chords, how to string a guitar, how to practise guitar, palm muting and basic lead guitar techniques. Please Note: The eBook includes musical pieces so is not suitable for smaller screens. 'We loved the book. The information was well paced and concise enough not to overwhelm. Any beginner would definitely benefit from having this book, and it's a great reminder for those who might have forgotten details or are looking for them.' Nimal De Silva, The Music Garage (Singapore) 'Through reading and learning from this book, players can discover a deep, extensive and in-depth approach to the technique, theory and everything else related to being a good beginner guitarist. Would recommend this for anyone who is looking to get a really solid grip on how to play the guitar, and also to tutors who are looking at ways to improve their own tutoring abilities.' Logan Ellis, Mgr. Spiderhands Productions Ltd (New Zealand) 'Learn to play Guitar is an ideal companion to support the beginner on their new found musical journey. Highly recommended.'

Race With A Dinosaur
19,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Cole is the oldest of two young boys growing up with their brilliant scientist and father, Professor Stubbins. One of the things the boys enjoyed the most was helping their dad reconstruct dinosaur skeletons that the professor brought home from the college because of the lack of lab space needed for the reconstruction process. One day while the professor was away Ricky was helping Cole sort through a new crate of bones when he accidentally cut his hand on one that broke open when he tried to bust off some petrified dirt. The break in the bone revealed a green glow that quickly seemed to dry up and fade away. The boys stuck the two pieces back together and except for a bandage on Ricky's hand all but forgot about the incident until Ricky started to exhibit two things: First he begins to develop some rather unusual skills - typical of a young strong dinosaur and Second he begins the process of dying due to a disease that would prove to be millions of years old. In his garage the professor stored his nearly completed 'Crowning Achievement' called the 'Rediscover Time' machine which was based on his theory that time could be accessed through a portal that is stored in a hidden dimension of DNA streams. He believed that any period of history could be tapped into if there was some DNA from that time available. He called it his DNA Synchronicity theory which stated that current living DNA can be taken out of sync with older DNA resulting in a person being transformed to the time and space of the older DNA. Unfortunately the funding to complete his machine was cut off when no one accepted his theory as valid or useful. The really sad part was that to complete the machine it he needed a flawless minimum fifty carat diamond so that he could activate light at all frequencies at the same time. Estimated cost of such a diamond? Who knows... Week by week Cole tried to convince his mother that Ricky was acting stranger by the day. Meanwhile at the lab the professor had just finished assembling the Dinosaur skeleton that supposedly infected Ricky. It was a very young Albertasaurus, nearly complete, except for the left foot bones. The professor noticed a sticky substance on a joint near the calf and upon close inspection with the lab's electron microscope found what looked like blood from the dinosaur mixed with human blood. He shared this with Cole and they began to piece together what was possibly wrong with Ricky. The professor had a new theory, 'his youngest son may have been infected with a disease that is millions of years old.' During a school field trip to the famous Royal Tyrrell dinosaur museum Ricky started to hallucinate that the dinosaurs in the exhibits were alive. He is able to cause severe panic among all the kids from his school and when the dust settles and everything returns back to normal Ricky is no where to be found. It turns out he has gone off to look for the left foot bones to the Albertasaurus the professor has in the lab. After an exhaustive search of the area by the whole town, Ricky is finally found at the bottom of a cavern in shock still wearing his school backpack. He is rushed to the hospital at the point of near death. All seems lost for Ricky till mom goes through his backpack like someone looking for comfort through an old photo album. She finds an unusual stone stuck to what appears to be the foot bones of a young dinosaur. After careful examination they are identified as the foot bones from the professor's Albertasaurus and a perfect diamond big enough to complete the 'Rediscover Time Machine!' The machine is quickly completed and tested only to discover that the diamond is too small to take the professor back in time. Cole is forced to volunteer and the adventure truly begins when he is successfully transformed to the time and space of the Albertasaurus.
