  • Music Works - Matt McLean

    The ideas presented in Music Works come from the experience of teaching music composition in a classroom setting to students largely not familiar with music notation or basic musical concepts.  The driving force behind this book is to help learners explore music through the act of composing and arranging their original ideas.  These lessons have been used as part of the Young Composers and Improvisors Workshop at LREI where participating students become composers and are given the experience of hearing their compositions performed by live musicians.  Visit the website to learn more and to hear student pieces.  On some topics the approach will reflect what is typically found in standard approaches to teaching Western Music Harmony but in other areas it will seem quite different.  Precedent is given to strategies that help the learner engage in the concepts in most immediate way.  It is highly recommended that each lesson be utilized with some type of music notation software such as Noteflight, Finale, Sibelius or Muse Score.  The student is encouraged to experiment with arranging notes in the manner of each particular lesson so as to best grasp the concepts.

  • GarageBand for Schools - Phil Heeley & David Ashworth

    For teachers who just don’t have enough time to trawl the net for the best music resources “GarageBand for Schools” is the answer. This book looks set to become a definitive guide for teachers and students. 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 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.

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.

  • Chaos Theory and Fractals - Michel Janos

    What is this business called "chaos"? What does it deal with? Why do people think it's important? And how did the term "chaos" - long associated with disorder - come to signify a new paradigm in the orderly realm of mathematics? The concept of chaos is one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding research topics of recent decades. Chaos might underlie many kinds of well-known processes - the performance of the stock market, the weather, the cries of newborn babies, the dripping of a leaky faucet, and more. I tried to make an accessible introduction on chaos theory. Style is informal and nontechnical. You're not required to have a particular background in mathematics to understand the content. Reading it is particularly easy, and it provides the basics to more advanced topics on chaos theory. The book is richly illustrated with images, and videos, and uses the resources of interactivity offered by modern e-book technology.
