The Terrane Puzzle - Robert B. Blodgett,George D. Stanley Summary

"Displaced or tectonostratigraphic terranes comprise a huge portion of real estate in the North American Cordillera. Terranes are discrete, fault-bound blocks of regional extent, with rocks and fossils that differ to a great extent from those of adjacent blocks. The allochthonous nature of most terranes, relative to adjacent craton, is well established. When mapped, they resemble a collage of mixed rock types, tectonic styles, metamorphism, and volcanic origins--each part resembling the pieces of a puzzle. Terrane studies remain integral to understanding the geological evolution of western North America. Since the initiation of the concept summarized in 1979 by the late David L. Jones, the significance of fossils and stratigraphy has been key to solving the puzzle. Chapters of this book written by experts in their field, provide a sense of the diversity of approaches in paleontology and stratigraphy. Contributions span geologic time from the Precambrian (Vendian) to Cretaceous and address over 20 Cordilleran terranes."--Publisher's website.

The Intuitive Sources of Probabilistic Thinking in Children

The Intuitive Sources of Probabilistic Thinking in Children Pdf/ePub eBook


The Intuitive Sources of Probabilistic Thinking in Children - H. Fischbein Summary

About a year ago I promised my friend Fischbein a preface to his book of which I knew the French manuscript. Now with the printer's proofs under my eyes I like the book even better than I did then, because of, and influenced by, new experiences in the meantime, and fresh thoughts that crossed my mind. Have I been influenced by what I remembered from the manuscript? If so, it must have happened unconsciously. But of course, what struck me in this work a year ago, struck a responsive chord in my own mind. In the past, mathematics teaching theory has strongly been influenced by a view on mathematics as a heap of concepts, and on learning mathematics as concepts attainment. Mathematics teaching practice has been jeopardised by this theoretical approach, which in its most dangerous form expresses itself as a radical atomism. To concepts attainment Fischbein opposes acquisition of intuitions. In my own publications I avoided the word "intuition" because of the variety of its meanings across languages. For some time I have used the term "constitution of mathematical objects", which I think means the same as Fischbein's "acquisition of intuitions" - indeed as I view it, constituting a mental object precedes its conceptualising, and under this viewpoint I tried to observe mathematical activities of young children.

Amazing Ocean Creatures For Kids Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1 Mimic Octopus: Blue-striped Fangblenny: Ghost Pipefish: Leafy Sea Dragon: Chapter 2 Swordtail Characin: Pearl Fish: Coleman Shrimp: Black Marble Jawfish: Tasseled Anglerfish: Chapter 3 Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” ~Jacques Yves Cousteau The Ocean is full of amazing creatures in all shapes, sizes and colors! This large body of water is covered with life, but to survive some creatures need to be very smart. And they need to know how to hide or pretend really well. In this book, we will talk about a few creatures who really know how to vanish in plain sight! Are you ready to get started? Then review the names of these amazing creatures before we begin: 1-Mimic Octopus 2-Blue Striped Fang Blenny 3-Ghost Pipefish 4-Cockatoo Wasp fish 5-Leafy Sea Dragon 6-Swordtail Characin 7-Pearl fish 8-Coleman Shrimp 9-Black Marble Jaw Fish 10-Tasseled Anglerfish Do you know any of these creatures and what makes them unique? It’s their ability to blend in with their surroundings. For example, some of them change their colors to look like something completely different. Others hide in funny places and some even change their body shape to look like something else! Can you do that? These Ocean creatures can teach us a lot about making the best of any situation and learning how to adapt. Another word for this practice is called: Camouflage. Do you know what this word means? Kids.Net.Au describes this word like this: “the act of concealing the identity of something by modifying its appearance; Remember: Every creature on the planet can teach us something new. So take a moment to learn about the real “masters of disguise!”
