The speculation of crossed items is intensely wealthy and interesting. There are purposes not just to operator algebras, yet to matters as diversified as noncommutative geometry and mathematical physics. This publication presents an in depth advent to this significant topic appropriate for graduate scholars and others whose examine has touch with crossed product $C^*$-algebras.

This experience forced me to question radically my Page xvi own rationales for the importance of algebra in the high school curriculum. Luckily, at Holt, I had the opportunity to examine my algebra teaching with care and to work closely with Sandy and with other colleagues in this high school's mathematics department. After the reader is introduced in greater detail to my co-teacher, Sandy Bethell, the three central chapters of the book move back and forth between analysis of lower-track secondary school mathematics teaching and description of classes that Sandy and I co-taught.

First, it seems important to address the dynamics of a kind of teaching situation that is prevalent in schools as currently organized. Unless schooling is changed radically across the United States, these dynamics will surely continue to prevail. Thus, it seems useful to understand these dynamics deeply. ), or of schooling as a whole, would help eliminate the dynamics I have been describing. I would argue that restructuring roles and relationships inside the classroom is a crucial part of the larger organizational restructuring needed to Page xiv address the central difficulties of compulsory schooling.
