  • 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.

  • Award in Education and Training - Nabeel Zaidi

    PASS FIRST TIME! This interactive textbook provides you with all the up-to-date information you need to pass first time, since it focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit. As a lecturer / trainer / tutor / assessor / curriculum manager, how do you ensure: • that all individual learners’ needs are identified and met effectively? • that full account is taken of disability and learning difficulties when preparing and delivering teaching, learning and assessment strategies? • that strategies applied to reduce the barriers to learning experienced by disabled learners and those with learning difficulties are legitimate and reasonable and do not provide them with an unfair advantage?  • that the most appropriate teaching, learning and assessment methods are used?, and • that sessions are planned and delivered effectively (and evidenced accordingly as part of a MICRO-TEACH )?  This interactive textbook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit’s assessment criteria.  Out of the three units of the Award in Education and Training , Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training is probably the most demanding to understand and apply.

It is therefore suitable for those intending to enter teaching and training as well as those already involved in delivering or managing a programme. Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training is the second book in the Award in Education and Training series and covers each aspect of the Award in Education and Training (AET) unit of the same name. Like the first book on Understanding Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education and Training , this book is mapped directly to each of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the unit across all awarding organisations. It provides detailed practical explanation and links to various other resources so that whether you are new to teaching or already in a teaching or related role, there will be a detailed examination of inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training.

  • Reactivity of metals - The Open University

    It’s astonishing that the vast majority of the naturally occurring elements in the Periodic Table are metals. Their ability to conduct heat and electricity and their malleability make them extremely useful materials.  The first section of this multitouch book looks at some of the more socially and historically important metals, starting with gold and silver. It moves on to consider copper, tin and bronze (an alloy of copper and tin), and the most widely used metal, iron, without which the Industrial Revolution just wouldn’t have been possible. Section 2 looks more generally at the reactivity of metals, and it introduces the concept of an activity series that represents the relative ease with which metals react to form compounds. This book includes video clips and two interactive activities to enhance your understanding of the reactivity of metals. A student at A-level, International Baccalaureate, or K-12 level will be stretched by this content and teaching. If in doubt, download the free sample.

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.

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.”

  • Fundamental Forces - The Open University

    This book is a first step in understanding how atoms, planets, stars and galaxies were formed from material that emerged from the Big Bang. To even begin to understand the workings of our Universe, we must understand the rules the Universe follows. There are four fundamental interactions between matter and radiation that underlie all processes, at all scales, everywhere in the Universe. Author Dr Andrew Norton, senior lecturer in Astrophysics at The Open University, appears in videos throughout the book, ready to introduce and summarise the concepts you will be covering. In addition, this multitouch book features numerous interactive elements, including quizzes, animated graphics, images, and tables, as well as a comprehensive glossary of terms. This book will help you to grasp the fundamental forces of the Universe, and how these interactions are expressed in terms of quantum theories. This textbook bridges the gap between the top of secondary education and entry level in tertiary education. A student at A-level, International Baccalaureate, or K-12 level will be stretched by this content and teaching. If in doubt, download the free sample.

  • 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.

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.

  • Everyday Geometry - Ann Karina Broholm Kristiansen

    Mathematics is a natural part of our everyday lives, although we often do not give the matter much thought. Size, weight, shape and correlation between objects, all have an element of mathematics in them. Everyday Geometry - Area Calculation, takes a closer look at how mathematics can be used to calculate the area of anything from a house terrace to a famous square. This book is designed to be used at several educational levels in mathematics classes in upper secondary or high school, as well as further education colleges and adult education centres, or in interdisciplinary courses and projects related to the topic of mathematics. The book aims to give the reader an insight into how mathematics can be used in everyday life. By working through the book, the reader will learn to calculate the area of a variety of geometric shapes, such as rectangles, triangles, trapezoids, parallelograms and circles. Along the way, the reader will gain an understanding of the formulas used to calculate areas by carrying out tasks to work out how these formulas are arrived at.  Throughout the book there is focus on knowledge being conveyed not only through the text, but also through a series of interactive features in the form of images, film, animations and student-motivating assignments. The reader is thus actively  involved in examining the questions which the book focuses on, for example by making animated explanations of how formulas for areas are derived in Explain Everything and by calculating the areas of famous squares such as St Peter's Square in Rome using the app Distance Measure.

  • Pugin and Victorian architecture - The Open University

    Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812–52) was a nineteenth-century English architect and designer.  He challenged the traditions and values of classical architecture – not by inventing something novel, but by reviving and adapting the Gothic styles current in the medieval period. However, his emulation of Gothic architecture, ecclesiastical furnishings and art was not just about the revival of an old artistic tradition. It was as much about finding a style that could epitomise the national, cultural and religious character of Britain. This book offers an introduction to Pugin, his inspirations, his triumphs and his failures. It offers a wide variety of interactive activities and images, to give you a rich sense of Pugin's work and achievements.

These interactive digital books are each dedicated to different concepts and techniques used for improvising and include Concert Pitch, Bb Pitch, Eb Pitch and Bass Clef versions of each book, making them useful for virtually all instruments.  Drawing on his years of experience teaching improvisation to adult learners, school children and music conservatoire students he presents a simple a step by step guide to developing the skills required for improvising. As well as clear instruction and a logical pathway these books include many practical exercises, which are tried and tested methods, in all 12 keys with notation and audio play-along files at different tempos embedded directly in to the book.  The “How To Learn To Improvise” series of music tuition books are meant for… • Musicians who have little or no experience with improvising and do not know where to start.  • Musicians who have some experience of improvising but want a less “hit and miss” approach.  • More experienced improvisers who want a thorough and rigorous practice method to improve their improvising skills in all 12 keys and can be used as a great warm up routine.  • Music teachers who want to include improvisation in their lessons, but have little experience in how to teach it. The second in the series is " How To Learn To Improvise using Minor Pentatonic Scales " which is written for any musicians on any instrument interested in learning how to learn to improvise. Unlike a lot of other available material on this subject it isn’t just about the theory. It is about the process of learning and provides a series of practical exercises that break down, what can feel like for some, a huge leap in to small manageable steps. It is a tried and tested practical method that is thorough and gradually moves the student away from playing scales up and down to creating melodic phrases and gives them the confidence to improvise and not get lost in the form.   This interactive digital book includes...  • Over 18,000 words of text giving clear guidance and instruction for each exercise and harmonic analysis showing how each scale fits with each chord sequence • 189 pages • 369 notated musical examples  • A thorough practice routine and series of exercises in all 12 keys • 1340 play-along audio files embedded directly in the book  • 7 different backing tracks for practicing improvising in various different styles, including Swing, Bossa Nova, Pop and Blues, with all exercises in all 12 keys For Concert Pitch Suitable for vocalists interested in scat singing and all Concert Pitch instruments including:  Piano, Organ, Guitar, Vibraphone, Flute, Violin, Viola, Cello, Oboe, Bassoon.  "Highly recommended for players new to improvising and looking for an engaging way to get started with this component of Jazz vocabulary. Buster has created a well thought-out and easy to follow guide with embedded audio examples that make it very immediate and interactive. It comes in Eb and Bb as well as the Concert keys and will make a valuable on-the-go addition to your practice routines.”  Nick Smart, Head of Jazz, Royal Academy of Music “This is a great resource, both for beginners and more advanced students (it’s always good to go backwards!).  Buster arranges this in a way that introduces ideas logically and slowly, and yet still allows for creativity and invention in their application.  The interactive elements are extremely helpful and allow lots of play and practice!” Liam Noble (Professor of Jazz Piano at Birmingham Conservatoire & Trinity College of Music)
