Reading, Writing, Mathematics and the Developing Brain: Listening to Many Voices

This valuable addition to the literature offers readers a comprehensive overview of recent brain imaging research focused on reading, writing and mathematics—a research arena characterized by rapid advances that follow on the heels of fresh developments and techniques in brain imaging itself. With contributions from many of the lead scientists in this field, a number of whom have been responsible for key breakthroughs, the coverage deals with the commonalities of, as well as the differences between, brain activity related to the three core educational topics. At the same time, the volume addresses vital new information on both brain and behavior indicators of developmental problems, and points out the new directions being pursued using current advances in brain imaging technologies as well as research-based interventions. The book is also a tribute to a new Edmund, J Safra Brain center for the study of learning Disabilities at the University of Haifa-Israel.

An Introduction to Real Analysis

The Commonwealth and International Library: Mathematical Topics

An Introduction to Real Analysis presents the concepts of real analysis and highlights the problems which necessitate the introduction of these concepts. Topics range from sets, relations, and functions to numbers, sequences, series, derivatives, and the Riemann integral. This volume begins with an introduction to some of the problems which are met in the use of numbers for measuring, and which provide motivation for the creation of real analysis. Attention then turns to real numbers that are built up from natural numbers, with emphasis on integers, rationals, and irrationals. The chapters that follow explore the conditions under which sequences have limits and derive the limits of many important sequences, along with functions of a real variable, Rolle's theorem and the nature of the derivative, and the theory of infinite series and how the concepts may be applied to decimal representation. The book also discusses some important functions and expansions before concluding with a chapter on the Riemann integral and the problem of area and its measurement. Throughout the text the stress has been upon concepts and interesting results rather than upon techniques. Each chapter contains exercises meant to facilitate understanding of the subject matter. This book is intended for students in colleges of education and others with similar needs.

Sirah 60 Sahabat Nabi Muhammad saw

"Dan perang Shiffin pun pecah. 'Ammar yang menginjak usia 93 tahun maju dengan gagah berani. Langkahnya seperti layaknya pemuda 30 tahunan. Keberaniannya tidak susut oleh usia. Melihat, Ammar bin Yasir berada di tengah-tengah pasukan Ali ra., Muawwiyah yang memimpin perlawanan terlihat gentar. Kabar tentang kematian 'Ammar di tangan pemberontak kembali terngiang di kepalanya. Muawwiyah mewanti-wanti pasukannya untuk tidak melawan 'Ammar. Agar cap pemberontak tidak melekat pada dirinya dan pasukannya." Saat disebut nama Abu Bakar as Shiddiq, Umar bin Khattab, Utsman bin Affan dan Ali bin Abi Thalib (radiallahu anhum), sudah banyak yang mengenal keistimewaan mereka. Tapi ternyata dalam peradaban nabawiyah yang dibangun oleh Baginda Nabi beserta sahabat bermunculan banyak permata yang berkilau. Mereka menorehkan kisah-kisah nyata yang bukan isapan jempol. Bukan pula sekadar dongeng yang tanpa bukti. Tapi kisah nyata yang terukir dalam sejarah keemasan Islam. Kisah yang akan membawa kita pada lautan hikmah dan teguhnya sebuah keyakinan. Di sini kita akan membaca betapa mulianya enam puluh orang manusia yang semasa hidupnya sudah mendapat jaminan masuk surga oleh Rasulullah saw. Dari mereka kita bisa melihat profil calon penghuni surga. Yaitu yang bersih hatinya dari rasa iri, yang sangat teguh memegang janji setia, yang sangat dermawan dan mengejar keridhaan Allah di tengah lautan harta benda. Saudaraku, kalian akan diajak mengagumi kecerdasan Ibnu Abbas ra. Juga mengenal orang-orang yang bisa jadi penampilannya tidak menarik, rambutnya kusut penuh debu, tapi saat dia mengangkat tangan untuk berdoa, maka 'Arsy akan bergetar. Dan doa-doa mereka tak terhijab. Subhanallah.... Mari membaca, mari merindu mereka yang telah menjadi cahaya peradaban Islam. Karena mereka pernah ada. Karena mereka nyata!

30 Paspor di Kelas Sang Profesor #2

Kisah Anak-Anak Muda Kesasar di Empat Benua

"Paling lambat 1,5 bulan ke depan, kalian semua harus sudah berangkat!" Demikian ucapan Prof. Rhenald Kasali di hari pertama masuk kuliah Pemasaran Internasional yang sontak membuat kelas gaduh luar biasa. Negara tujuan ditentukan saat itu juga. Sementara paspor harus didapatkan dalam waktu dua minggu ke depan. Metode kuliah yang awalnya ditentang banyak orang tersebut-dari orangtua mahasiswa sampai sesama dosen-terbukti menjadi ajang "latihan terbang" bagi para calon rajawali. Demikian Prof. Rhenald mengibaratkannya. Tersasar di negeri orang dapat menumbuhkan mental self driving, syarat untuk menjadi pribadi yang bebas, mandiri, dan bertanggung jawab menentukan arah hidup sendiri. Dalam jilid pertama buku ini, para mahasiswa mengalami sendiri berbagai pengalaman unik. Ketinggalan pesawat, tidak punya uang sehingga terpaksa mencari negara miskin, kena tipu oleh pengemis, adalah beberapa di antaranya.

“Abang hati-hati, ya, di sana, Nak. Jangan lupa makan dan istirahat yang banyak
biar enggak sakit,” pesan ibuku. Aku anak pertama dari dua bersaudara maka
aku dipanggil abang di keluargaku. “Abang wajib mengabari Papa minimal tiga

Theories of Vision from Al-kindi to Kepler

Kepler's successful solution to the problem of vision early in the seventeenth century was a theoretical triumph as significant as many of the more celebrated developments of the scientific revolution. Yet the full import of Kepler's arguments can be grasped only when they are viewed against the background of ancient, medieval, and Renaissance visual theory. David C. Lindberg provides this background, and in doing so he fills the gap in historical scholarship and constructs a model for tracing the development of scientific ideas. David C. Lindberg is professor and chairman of the department of the history of science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
