Mathematics the Truth
'Mathematics the Truth: Moving mathematics teaching into the age of quantum mechanics and relativity' by Malcolm Cameron'serious, light-hearted, insight."Shakes mathematics teaching icons …"Rescues mathematics from a black hole."Currently mathematics is taught like a Latin, without motivation, restricted to the period from Euclid in the BC to the Renaissance. This thinking degrades mathematics which is fundamental. Without mathematics sciences are merely observational nature study, engineering is trial and error, while technology is only training in use of imported stuff anyway. Mathematics is the great philosophical basis for understanding the universe from the Quantum to Cosmology and Relativity, its history and future. Citizens ought to know what is happening in these subjects, and in experiments probing the structure of the universe, at least in concept. We must at least note where classical mathematics and physics are in error giving a lead for future understanding of quantum computing, for example, and for many biological and physical phenomena. Reference to the unknown, the un-understood, and the unexpected are the major motivation to understand any subject.'Mathematics the Truth' is popular, real, modern mathematics but not a popularization. It is a book for anyone who wants to put the motivation back into mathematics. Anyone who wants to know the unknown, the un-understood, and the unexpected in mathematics.'Mathematics the Truth' is suitable for use in upper secondary schools, but will be golden to anyone interested in mathematics from the true angle. You will never look at mathematics in the same way againYou are a brainy bastard. Malcolm McDonald, FEDFA Union, State President, 1992-96

Günter Törner represents an international voice of reason, well respected and known in both groups, one who has successfully bridged and worked in both domains for three decades. His contributions in the domain of beliefs theory are well known and acknowledged. The articles in this book are written by many prominent researchers in the area of mathematics education, several of whom are editors of leading journals in the field and have been at the helm of cutting edge advances in research and practice. The contents cover a wide spectrum of research, teaching and learning issues that are relevant for anyone interested in mathematics education and its multifaceted nature of research. The book as a whole also conveys the beauty and relevance of mathematics in societies around the world. It is a must read for anyone interested in mathematics education.

Level 3 students will also find this text to be a useful resource for getting to grips with essential mathematics concepts, because the compulsory topics in BTEC National and A Level Engineering courses are also addressed.

Transcendental Mathematics
Science is about the mundane, visible world. Religion is about the transcendent, invisible world. Atheists believe that science is the only way to explain the world. Agnostics think it's the best way. But is science actually a system of explanation at all, or merely a good problem-solving tool and method that achieves practical success in the observable world? Isn't science, like God, in need of an explanation? What is its ontological and epistemological basis? What limitations does it have? How does it define "Truth"?Immanuel Kant, via his philosophy of transcendental idealism, attempted to explain science within a philosophical and even religious context. This attempt ultimately failed, but the project itself need not be abandoned. This book shows, via a detailed investigation of Kant's philosophy, that the only way to make sense of science is via transcendental mathematics.
