Bringing together flexibility and fun in easy to follow, step-by-step video tutorials, backed up with sound educational content, “GarageBand for Schools” will engage and motivate students and empower teachers to use iPads in a constructive and creative way. Additionally, teachers who lack confidence in music teaching will be able to develop their own skills and ability in ways that will enable them to incorporate music technology into their own teaching and help their students become better musicians” Whether you are a Primary, Secondary or SEN teacher, or a parent, everyone will find ways to enhance their lessons and support their children using this book. Written by Phil Heeley and David Ashworth, two of the UK’s leading Music Technology Educators and Consultants, “GarageBand for Schools” takes you step by step through the songwriting process: through the systematic organisation of the sessions, teachers and students learn and hone new skills by learning through doing. This is a practical, hands-on tool which will inspire and motivate. With teachers’ notes, screenshots and sensible reminders such as ‘save your work regularly!’ this resource takes account of and builds upon students’ own interests and experiences. The resource includes: •  over 65  minutes of video tutorials. •  Chapters including advice how to structure a song, working with chords, adding layers to a song, editing tracks, developing effective musical contrasts and active listening. Here are some comments from teachers who have previewed the Guide: “Clearly laid out and well paced - not too daunting” “I’m not a music specialist and I love the idea of being able to use this resource to essentially bring an expert into my classroom” “The videoclips are great - ideal for our kids who like to learn using youtube, for example” “The curriculum mapping and teachers notes are really useful. This will help me integrate into my music lesson planning - and also to teach using GarageBand effectively.’  “Songwriting is something we don’t do very well. GB for Schools will make such a difference - and also support our work with literacy!” Finally, from the Foreword by Dick Hallam OBE: “In the field of song-writing, ‘GarageBand for Schools’ fulfils this role masterfully – removing barriers to the effective use of music technology and making it more accessible and enjoyable.”

  • Computer Programming with Matlab - J. Michael Fitzpatrick & Akos Ledeczi

    The primary purpose of this book is to teach computer programming to those with little to no previous experience. It uses the programming system and language called MATLAB to do so because MATLAB is easy to learn and, at the same time, is an extremely versatile and useful programming language and programming environment. MATLAB is a special-purpose language that is an excellent choice for writing moderate-size programs that solve problems involving the manipulation of numbers. The design of the language makes it possible to write a powerful program in a few lines. The problems may be relatively complex, while the MATLAB programs that solve them are relatively simple: relative, that is, to the equivalent program written in a general-purpose language, such as C++ or Java. As a result, MATLAB is being used in a wide variety of domains from the natural sciences through all disciplines of engineering to finance and beyond, and it is heavily used in industry. Hence, a solid background in MATLAB is an indispensable skill in today’s job market. Nevertheless, this book is not merely a reference manual for MATLAB or a MATLAB tutorial. It is an introductory programming textbook that happens to use MATLAB to illustrate general concepts in computer science and programming. As a side effect, the reader will gain a solid foundation in MATLAB. This book is a good fit for an introductory college-level course in computer programming for engineering and science students. In fact, it is being used as the textbook for such a course at Vanderbilt University. It serves the dual purpose of teaching computer programming and providing a background in MATLAB, which is used in higher-level courses in many majors. This book is also suitable to teach programming to high school students. The material assumes no background in mathematics that is not part of standard high school curricula, and MATLAB is much more accessible as an introduction to programming to the average student than Java, C, C++, or other general-purpose languages.

  • The Geometries - Michel Janos

    Men were always looking for the best geometry that represents the physical world. Most people do not realize that about a century and a half a revolution happened in geometry whose impact can be considered equivalent to the impact of the Theory of Evolution of Species Darwin in biology. Unfortunately this revolution does not seem to be being passed to students who continue to study almost exclusively the Euclidean geometry. It is as if the high school students had still not been informed about the evolution of species. In this book I present different types of geometries that are now part of the culture of a scientifically well informed person. Among them are: The non-Euclidian geometries, Transformations, Topology, Fractal Geometry and many others.

  • The Causes and Geographical Impacts of War in Afghanistan - Peter Lowe

    This textbook was ‘Highly Commended’ by the judges at the Geographical Association Publishers' Awards 2014. It investigates the nature and origin of the highly destructive conflict in Afghanistan, involving both civil and international war, which has been an ongoing feature of the country since the Soviet invasion of 1979. The book examines the anti-Soviet struggle of the 1980s, the vicious civil war and emergence of the Taliban in the 1990s, as well as the 2001 US-led invasion, and the efforts of the international coalition to suppress the Taliban insurgency. It also follows the country’s struggle for stability and peace since the withdrawal of the majority of coalition troops in 2014. More than 30 years of conflict have had horrific effects on the lives of Afghanistan’s civilians, and taken a heavy toll on the forces involved in the fighting. But the consequences go much deeper. Therefore, the book also scrutinises the geographical impacts of the war, in terms of the resulting economic, social and environmental legacy for Afghanistan and the international players in the conflict. The case study will support A Level Geography students following the AQA Geography Specification and studying the unit on 'Contemporary Conflicts and Challenges'. In addition, it will be of relevance to many others with an interest in national or international conflicts. Images, videos, multiple-choice review questions, exam-style questions and further tasks / discussion questions are provided to create a more interactive and educational experience for the reader.

  • Cell Signaling - Tom Robertson, Jim Moore, Scott Brown, Flint Buchanan, Renee Stander & Thel Melton

    Everything that affects your body, from the most mundane things to those that are life-threatening, work through intracellular signaling mechanisms. Therefore, it is vitally important for you to understand how your cells respond to the signals they receive. Unfortunately, the flat 2-dimensional drawings typically used in textbooks do not convey the "dynamic" nature of these processes, causing many students to struggle to understand cell signaling. In most cases, this problem arises because it can be difficult to envision the different components involved and where things take place in the cell.  As a result, the majority of students simply memorize the information for an exam and then forget it immediately. This ebook addresses that problem first by putting you on the cell surface where you can see a ligand interact with its receptor, and then taking you inside where the dynamic nature of intracellular signaling becomes apparent. Within this context, cell signaling will finally make sense, taking you to the point where you can actually apply your new knowledge rather than just lose it.
