✏Resources for Teaching Discrete Mathematics Book Summary : Resources for Teaching Discrete Mathematics presents nineteen classroom tested projects complete with student handouts, solutions, and notes to the instructor. Topics range from a first day activity that motivates proofs to applications of discrete mathematics to chemistry, biology, and data storage. Other projects provide: supplementary material on classic topics such as the towers of Hanoi and the Josephus problem, how to use a calculator to explore various course topics, how to employ Cuisenaire rods to examine the Fibonacci numbers and other sequences, and how you can use plastic pipes to create a geodesic dome. The book contains eleven history modules that allow students to explore topics in their original context. Sources range from eleventh century Chinese figures that prompted Leibniz to write on binary arithmetic, to a 1959 article on automata theory. Excerpts include: Pascal's "Treatise on the Arithmetical Triangle," Hamilton's "Account of the Icosian Game," and Cantor's (translated) "Contributions to the Founding of the Theory of Transfinite Numbers." Five articles complete the book. Three address extensions of standard discrete mathematics content: an exploration of historical counting problems with attention to discovering formulas, a discussion of how computers store graphs, and a survey connecting the principle of inclusion-exclusion to Möbius inversion. Finally, there are two articles on pedagogy specifically related to discrete mathematics courses: a summary of adapting a group discovery method to larger classes, and a discussion of using logic in encouraging students to construct proofs.

✏Water Resources Research in Northwest China Book Summary : This book examines the possible impacts of climate change on hydrology and water resources in the vast arid region of Northwest China, which is one of the world’s largest arid places. The first chapter offers an introductory discussion of the physical geography and socioeconomic conditions in the region. Chapters 2 through 7 discuss the climate system and hydrologic system changes in the region, and assess some implications of these changes in relation to potential evapotranspiration, the hydrological cycle and spatiotemporal variations of the snow cover and glaciers as measured via remote sensing, geographic information systems, and statistical analysis. Chapters 8 and 9 focus on model description and experimental design for interpreting the hydro-climatic process, emphasizing the integration of water, climate, and land ecosystems through field observations and computer-based simulations. Chapter 10 examines some extreme hydrological events and presents a study using the historical trend method to investigate the spatial and temporal variability of changing temperature and precipitation extremes in the hyper-arid region of Northwest China. A concluding chapter discusses possible strategies for sustainable watershed management. The contributors are acknowledged experts who bring broad, relevant experience on water resources research in China’s cold and arid regions. The lessons of this volume will prove useful for understanding arid areas elsewhere in the world.

✏At the Forest s Edge Book Summary : "David Hellyer-physician, naturalist, world traveler, horseman, boxing enthusiast, and creator of Northwest Trek wildlife sanctuary-has lived one of the most varied and useful lives of anyone I know. His memoirs reflect the dry humor, the astonishing range of expertise, and the combination of charm, creativity, and energy that have made his careers possible."-Murray Morgan, author of Skid Road "His richly anecdotal story is a valuable contribution to the history of the Pacific Northwest."-Victor B. Scheffer, author of The Shaping of Environmentalism in America "During the past century, many great men with passion and spirit have made an effort to help preserve the wildlife on our planet. David Hellyer is one of these men. His book, At the Forest's Edge, is a great collection of remembrances of his life, leading up to the opening of the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Washington State. His enduring memories of times, places, and people make for a fascinating tale."-Charles R. Faust, Zoological Society of San Diego
