The Shape of Space, 2th Edition
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | 1994 | PDF | 308 pages | ISBN: 0521450144 | 5.7Mb
This is a revised and updated edition of Graham Nerlich's classic book (1976). It develops a metaphysical account of space that treats it as a real and concrete entity, showing that shape plays a key explanatory role in space and spacetime theories. Arguing that geometrical explanation is very like causal explanation, Professor Nerlich prepares the ground for philosophical argument and investigates how different spaces would affect perception differently. Along the way Professor Nerlich criticizes and rejects conventionalism as a non-realist metaphysics of space, concluding that there is, in fact, no problem of underdetermination for this aspect of spacetime theories, while offering an extensive discussion of the relativity of motion.

Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics
Publisher: Longman | 2010 | PDF | 272 pages | ISBN: 1405899506 | 5.8Mb
Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics is a full colour, core textbook for anyone training to teach Maths at primary level. A self-audit is provided at the outset to assess your prior knowledge and highlight areas for your personal development. The book will then help you to develop your mathematical understanding by encouraging you to think mathematically. You will be asked to create an action plan to aid your development and this will also allow you to build up a portfolio of evidence to help you achieve QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). Rather than treating subject knowledge and pedagogy as two separate entities, the book sets maths subject knowledge in context, showing you how to apply it in the classroom, through models and cases of best practice. Misconception boxes appear throughout each chapter to highlight common misconceptions children have in maths and help you to make connections between different areas of mathematics so that your pupils will see mathematics as a whole rather than a series of separate and often disparate ideas. Case studies in each chapter also provide you with an exemplar lesson plan annotated by a new teacher which shows you how to deal with a common misconception. This book will help you to deliver Maths at primary level in a clear and confident manner.

Digital Games: Computers at Play
Chelsea House Publications | 2010 | ISBN: 0816067864, 1438133626 | 144 pages | PDF | 14,3 MB
In 2006, about 67 percent of Americans played video games using a computer or game console such as PlayStation, Xbox, or Wii. Video games have come a long way since they were developed in the 1970s. In the past, game programs used a computer-like gadget that could be connected to the television. The players would look at the image on the television screen, hence the name "video game." With the development of personal computers in the 1980s, the computer monitor became a more popular display device, leading to the new term "computer game." These terms, along with "digital game," are now interchangeable. Digital Games: Computers at Play explains the history of digital games, explores how the games have affected players and society, and discusses emerging trends in the digital gaming industry.
