Can You Count in Greek?: Exploring Ancient Number Systems, Grades
Discovering the way people in ancient cultures conducted their lives is fascinating for young people, and learning how these people counted and calculated is a part of understanding these cultures. This book offers a concise, but thorough, introduction to ancient number systems. Students won't just learn to count like the ancient Greeks; they'll learn about the number systems of the Mayans, Babylonians, Egyptians, Romans, and Hindu-Arabic cultures, and also about quinary and binary systems. Symbols and rules regarding the use of the symbols in each number system are introduced and demonstrated with examples. Activity pages provide problems for the students to apply their understanding of each system. Can You Count in Greek? is a great resource for math, as well as a supplement for social studies units on ancient civilizations. This valuable resource builds understanding of place value, number theory, and reasoning. It includes everything you need to easily incorporate these units in math or social studies classes. Whether you use all of the units or a selected few, your students will gain a better understanding and appreciation of our number system.Grades 5–8

Making Votes Count: Strategic Coordination in the World's Electoral Systems (Political Economy of Institutions and
This book investigates strategic coordination in elections worldwide. Although the classics of electoral studies have dealt with issues of coordination, this is the first book that employs a unified game-theoretic model to study strategic coordination--including both strategic voting and strategic entry--worldwide and that relies primarily on constituency-level rather than national aggregate data in testing theoretical propositions about the effects of electoral laws.

IMPERSPICUITY: A Losing Trick Count Bridge Bidding
This book outlines the new Imperspicuity bridge bidding system. The bidding system uses Losing Trick Count evaluation methods almost exclusively to determine opening bids, responses, and subsequent bidding. High Card Points (HCP) are only used to limit the range of the 1 no trump opening bid, for some balanced hand rebids and responses, and to inform opponents of the HCP range of opening bids. The bidding system also utilises Losing Trick Count evaluation methods almost exclusively for overcalls and competitive bidding, responses, and subsequent bidding - introducing a number of new conventions.The bidding system is based on a modified Precision structure with: a 1 club opening promising a 6 or less loser hand of any shape (0 - 37 HCP); a 1 diamond 'catchall' opening promising a 7 loser hand with at least one 4 card major which may have 0 diamonds or a 4 to 6 loser hand with a 4441 shape (0 - 25 HCP); 1 heart and 1 spade openings promising 7 loser hands with 5+ card suits (0 - 19 HCP); a 1 no trump opening promising a 7 or 8 loser balanced hand (12 - 19 HCP); 2 club and 2 diamond openings promising 7 loser hands with 5+ card suits (0 - 19 HCP); and Rule of 123 'pre-empts' promising variable loser hands (0 - 26 HCP). The Law of Total Losers is introduced and used to quantify h...

Count Like an Egyptian: A Hands-on Introduction to Ancient
The mathematics of ancient Egypt was fundamentally different from our math today. Contrary to what people might think, it wasn't a primitive forerunner of modern mathematics. In fact, it can’t be understood using our current computational methods. Count Like an Egyptian provides a fun, hands-on introduction to the intuitive and often-surprising art of ancient Egyptian math. David Reimer guides you step-by-step through addition, subtraction, multiplication, and more. He even shows you how fractions and decimals may have been calculated―they technically didn’t exist in the land of the pharaohs. You’ll be counting like an Egyptian in no time, and along the way you’ll learn firsthand how mathematics is an expression of the culture that uses it, and why there’s more to math than rote memorization and bewildering abstraction.Reimer takes you on a lively and entertaining tour of the ancient Egyptian world, providing rich historical details and amusing anecdotes as he presents a host of mathematical problems drawn from different eras of the Egyptian past. Each of these problems is like a tantalizing puzzle, often with a beautiful and elegant solution. As you solve them, you’ll be immersed in many facets of Egyptian life, from hieroglyphs and pyramid building to agriculture,...
