About this product
- DescriptionOne equals zero! Every number is greater than itself! All triangles are isosceles! Surprised? Welcome to the world of <em>One Equals Zero and Other Mathematical Surprises</em>. In this engaging book of blackline activity masters, all men are bald, mistakes are lucky, and teachers can never spring surprise tests on their students!<br><br>Each paradox, fallacy, and mind boggler in <em>One Equals Zero</em> will challenge high school students at any grade level, encourage them to look at familiar mathematical situations in a new light, and help them better understand both the possibilities and the limitations of mathematics.<ul><li> Many of the paradoxes, fallacies, and mind bogglers in <em>One Equals Zero</em> are based on classic paradoxes and can be used in algebra, geometry, trigometry, statistics, or calculus classes.</li><li>One- and two-page activities can be used to reinforce, refine, or clarify a concept your students are studying, to add an element of surprise to your mathematics, to stimulate problem-solving skills, and as discussion topics and extra-credit assignments. Most of the activities can be completed in less than one class period and require additional materials.</li><li>Detailed teacher's tes accompanying each activity provide a thorough explanation of the paradox or problem; in-depth pedagogical and mathematical comments; suggestions for extensions; and, for many activities, related historical material.</li><li>A matrix of key concepts at the beginning of the book allows you to easily place each activity in a suitable context. Key concepts are also included in the teacher's tes for each activity.</li><li>A list of recommended reading guides you and your students to a wealth of related material.</li></ul>With <em>One Equals Zero</em>, you can transform mathematical errors and quandaries into positive learning experiences. Along the way you'll encourage your students to see that the development of mathematical skill is a process of creative struggle and spirited debate.
