"The highest standards of logical clarity are maintained." — Bulletin of The American Mathematical Society Written with exceptional lucidity and care, this concise text offers a rigorous introduction to finite differences and difference equations-mathematical tools with widespread applications in the social sciences, economics, and psychology. The exposition is at an elementary level with little required in the way of mathematical background beyond some facility with standard algebraic techniques and the essentials of trigonometry. Moreover, the author explains when needed such relevant ideas as the function concept, mathematical induction, binomial formula, de Moivre's Theorem and more. The book begins with a short introductory chapter showing how difference equations arise in the context of social science problems. Chapter One then develops essential parts of the calculus of finite differences. Chapter Two introduces difference equations and some useful applications in the social sciences: compound interest and amortization of debts, the classical Harrod-Domar-Hicks model for growth of national income, Metzler's pure inventory cycle, and others. Chapter Three treats linear differential equations with constant coefficients, including the important question of limiting behavior of solutions, which is discussed and applied to a variety of social science examples. Finally, Chapter Four offers concise coverage of equilibrium values and stability of difference equations, first-order equations and cobweb cycles, and a boundary-value problem. More extensive coverage is devoted to the relatively advanced concepts of generating functions and matrix methods for the solution of systems of simultaneous equations. Throughout, numerous worked examples and over 250 problems, many with answers, enable students to test their grasp of definitions, theorems and applications. Ideal for an undergraduate course or self-study, this cogent treatment will be of interest to all mathematicians, and especially to social scientists, who will find it an excellent introduction to a powerful tool of theory and research.
When Karl Wilson lost his job and had trouble finding a new one he became a broken man. With his wife Jill having to become the "breadwinner" and his already shaky marriage crumbling more by the day Karl sank into a deep funk. When his wife discovered an old spell that supposedly caused people to switch their gender she thought that she would teach her despondent spouse a on by the humiliating process of forcing him to become a woman temporarily. Hopefully the shock and indignity would shame him into getting back on his feet and restoring his manhood. Of course when someone with no experience dabbles in things like magic there are bound to be unforeseen results.
When somewhat surprisingly the spell actually worked and Karl was turned into Karla, a ravishingly beautiful woman with extraordinary sex appeal, it was Jill who found herself being taught more than a few ons. "The New Roommate" is a witty and sexy look at gender roles and how much they're often taken for granted until something causes the lines to blur. It's also an unorthodox romantic tale of a couple trying to save their marriage in the most unusual way possible. The story contains explicit adult language and situations. (Approximately 30,000 words.)

Building Thinking Skills(r) provides highly effective verbal and nonverbal reasoning activities to improve child's vocabulary, reading, writing, math, logic, and figural-spatial skills, as well as their visual and auditory processing.
This exceptional series provides a solid foundation for academic excellence and success on any assessment test. Methods The activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Children learn to analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words as they: Observe, recognize, and describe characteristics. Distinguish similarities and differences. Identify and complete sequences, classifications, and analogies. These processes help children develop superior thinking and communication skills that lead to deeper content learning in all subjects. Teaching Support Activities are modeled to reinforce reasoning skills and concepts.
Building Thinking Skills(r) Primary level requires attribute blocks and interlocking cubes
