 Make it stick : the science of successful learning

Cambridge, Massachusetts : Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, [2014]


 Learning is misunderstood -- To learn, retrieve -- Mix up your practice -- Embrace difficulties -- Avoid illusions of knowing -- Get beyond learning styles -- Increase your abilities -- Make it stick.


To most of us, learning something "the hard way" implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners. Memory plays a central role in our ability to carry out complex cognitive tasks, such as applying knowledge to problems never before encountered and drawing inferences from facts already known. New insights into how memory is encoded, consolidated, and later retrieved have led to a better understanding of how we learn. Grappling with the impediments that make learning challenging leads both to more complex mastery and better retention of what was learned. Many common study habits and practice routines turn out to be counterproductive. Underlining and highlighting, rereading, cramming, and single-minded repetition of new skills create the illusion of mastery, but gains fade quickly. More complex and durable learning come from self-testing, introducing certain difficulties in practice, waiting to re-study new material until a little forgetting has set in, and interleaving the practice of one skill or topic with another. Speaking most urgently to students, teachers, trainers, and athletes, Make It Stick will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement.

פנאי רציני : על תרבות וצריכה אחרת בימינו

תל אביב : רסלינג, 2018 ‬


‫ פנאי וצריכה: רקע כללי ומסגרת תיאורטית -- שדה המחקר -- מוטיבציות פנאי המאפשרות יצירת עצמי בעל משמעות -- מוטיבציות פנאי הקשורות ליחסים חברתיים -- סיכום ודיון ביניים במוטיבציות הפנאי -- חשיבות הפנאי במציאת משמעות בחברה הצרכנית -- בין מוטיבציות למשמעות: מסקנות וסיכום ‬

Abstract  ‫

ספר זה עוסק במרחב הפנאי ההולך וגדל בחיי הפרט, אשר נטוע עמוק בחרושת התרבות הרווחת בחברה הישראלית העכשווית. מרחב זה מהווה חלק בלתי נפרד מהאתוס הצרכני המציע עוד ועוד סוגים, צורות ומסגרות של פנאי לכל דורש, בכל מחיר ובכל תנאי. הספר מציג שלושה מאפייני פנאי עיקריים: "פנאי מזדמן", "פנאי מבוסס פרויקט" ו"פנאי רציני". באמצעות דיון בתיאוריה ובממצאי מחקר רחב היקף מוצגים בפני הקורא מוטיבציות ותגמולים המתקבלים מהשתתפות אנשים בחוגים, בקורסים ובסדנאות של "פנאי רציני" (נפחות, קרמיקה, יוגה ומשיטי יכטות). ‬

 ‫ למרות שעיסוק זה שקוע בכללי המשחק הקפיטליסטי, הוא מזמן מרחב להעצמה ולגיבוש עצמי, לשיפור איכות החיים ואף להבעת מחאה נגד אלמנטים בלתי רצויים בחיי היומיום. אולם לא עולה כאן הטענה שהצטרפות לעיסוקי הפנאי הרציני מבטאת פעולה מאורגנת של קבוצות הרוצות להביע מחאה, אלא שמדובר במהפכה שקטה אשר יש בה כדי לשנות/ להקטין את ההשפעות החברתיות, המניפולטיביות והאינטרסנטיות, ובאופן הזה לתרום לשיפור משמעותי של אורח חייהם של אלה שבוחרים לקחת את גורלם בידיהם.הספר אינו מציע "רשימת מכולת" של עיסוקי פנאי מועדפים, וגם אינו פורש תדריך לבחירת פנאי ראוי. ‬

 ‫ תחת זאת הוא מספק ידע תיאורטי ומחקרי שיאפשר לקוראים לבחון ולגבש תובנות ביחס למה שראוי שיצפו מעצמם ומחייהם בעת בחירתם בעיסוקי פנאי, על מנת שיוכלו לספק את מאווייהם, רצונותיהם ושאיפותיהם האישיים מבחינת האיכות והמהות. -- כריכה אחורית ‬

Intuitive probability and random processes using MATLAB

New York : Springer, 2006.


 Introduction -- Computer simulation -- Basic probability -- Conditional probability -- Discrete random variables -- Expected values for discrete random variables -- Multiple discrete random variables -- Conditional probability mass functions -- Discrete n-dimensional random variables -- Continuous random variables -- Expected values for continuous random variables -- Multiple continuous random variables -- Conditional probability density functions -- Continuous n-dimensional random variables -- Probability and moment approximations using limit theorems -- Basic random processes -- Wide sense stationary random processes -- Linear systems and wide sense stationary random processes -- Multiple wide sense stationary random processes -- Gaussian random processes -- Poisson random processes -- Markov chains -- Glossary of symbols and abbreviations -- Assorted math facts and formulas -- Linear and matrix algebra -- Summary of signals, linear transforms, and linear systems -- Answers to selected problems.


 Intuitive Probability and Random Processes using MATLAB® is an introduction to probability and random processes that merges theory with practice. Based on the author’s belief that only "hands-on" experience with the material can promote intuitive understanding, the approach is to motivate the need for theory using MATLAB examples, followed by theory and analysis, and finally descriptions of "real-world" examples to acquaint the reader with a wide variety of applications. The latter is intended to answer the usual question "Why do we have to study this?" Other salient features are: *heavy reliance on computer simulation for illustration and student exercises *the incorporation of MATLAB programs and code segments *discussion of discrete random variables followed by continuous random variables to minimize confusion *summary sections at the beginning of each chapter *in-line equation explanations *warnings on common errors and pitfalls *over 750 problems designed to help the reader assimilate and extend the concepts Intuitive Probability and Random Processes using MATLAB® is intended for undergraduate and first-year graduate students in engineering. The practicing engineer as well as others having the appropriate mathematical background will also benefit from this book.

Martin, Robert C. 

Clean code : a handbook of agile software craftsmanship

Upper Saddle River, New Jersey : Prentice Hall, 2009


 Clean code -- Meaningful names -- Functions -- Comments -- Formatting -- Objects and data structures -- Error handling -- Boundaries -- Unit tests -- Classes -- Systems -- Emergence -- Concurrency -- Successive refinement -- Junit internals -- Refactoring serialdate -- Smells and heuristics.


 Even bad code can function. But if code isn’t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees. Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship . Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code "on the fly" into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer, but only if you work at it. What kind of work will you be doing? You’ll be reading code, lots of code. And you will be challenged to think about what’s right about that code, and what’s wrong with it. More importantly, you will be challenged to reassess your professional values and your commitment to your craft. Clean Code is divided into three parts. The first describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code. The second part consists of several case studies of increasing complexity. Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code, of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient. The third part is the payoff: a single chapter containing a list of heuristics and "smells" gathered while creating the case studies. The result is a knowledge base that describes the way we think when we write, read, and clean code. Readers will come away from this book understanding how to tell the difference between good and bad code. How to write good code and how to transform bad code into good code. How to create good names, good functions, good objects, and good classes. How to format code for maximum readability. How to implement complete error handling without obscuring code logic. How to unit test and practice test-driven development. This book is a must for any developer, software engineer, project manager..

Britton, Ron 

On design : a philosophy of design and engineering

Victoria : FriesenPress, 2017.


 While many engineering books speak to "doing" engineering, precious few focus on the concept of "being" an engineer. Hence, this book, which is a reflection on the human side of engineering. The contents are drawn from two different, but parallel, columns Ron Britton wrote for the Keystone Professional, the official magazine of Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba (formerly the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Manitoba). The Thoughts on Design column started in 2001 as an explanation of the opportunities provided by the award of one of the first Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Chairs in Design Engineering. The Engineering Philosophy 101 column came about in 2006, following a discussion relating to the philosophical foundations of engineering ethics. Consequently, this is a book about how one engineer has reacted to circumstances that involve engineers, either directly or peripherally, including engineering successes and failures. It reflects on how engineers should-and hopefully do-fit into and contribute to our ever-changing world, speaks to the privileges and responsibilities society has provided the profession in exchange for the right to self-government within that profession, and reflects on the constraints of professional practice and the creative possibilities that parallel those limitations.

Rubin-Kunda, Lezli 

 At home : talks with Canadian artists about place and practice

Fredericton, New Brunswick : Goose Lane ; [Place of publication not identified] : Regal Projects, [2018].


 "In this intimate investigation of the artistic process, Lezli Rubin-Kunda explores the nuanced path of creative work and the way artists make sense of home and place within their art practice and their lives. Rubin-Kunda is a multidisciplinary artist who examines these issues in her own work. But in this book, she expands her horizons, travelling across Canada to talk to more than fifty practicing artists, including Amalie Atkins, Aganetha Dyck, Francois Morelli, Simon Frank, and Sharon Alward, about their work, their creative process, and the place of "home" in their work. What emerges from these thoughtful conversations are fascinating and unexpected orientations to place, ranging from deep connections to a specific childhood home, to more conscious adoptions of place, to somewhat fluid approaches in which the very concept of "home" seems to dissolve. Moving from physical landscapes to the geography of memories and recorded histories, from territories of emotion to social environments that condition and contribute to the idea of home, Rubin-Kunda touches on indigenous approaches to ancestral homelands, the land as physical place and emotional territory, the historic role of women in creating and taking care of "home," ideas of home disconnected from place, and liberating concepts of "homelessness." Woven through these encounters with other artists are Rubin-Kunda’s reflections on her own artistic path. Candid, empathetic, and insightful, At Home explores the creative process and the ways that artists find and create meaning within a fragmented contemporary landscape."-- Provided by publisher.

"Christien Meindertsma has spent three years researching all the products made from a single pig. Amongst some of the more unexpected results were: Ammunition, medicine, photo paper, heart valves, brakes, chewing gum, porcelain, cosmetics, cigarettes, conditioner and even bio diesel. Meindertsma makes the subject more approachable by reducing everything to the scale of one animal. After it’s death, Pig number 05049 was shipped in parts throughout the world. Some products remain close to their original form and function while others diverge dramatically. In an almost surgical way a pig is dissected in the pages of the book - resulting in a startling photo book where all the products are shown at their true scale (1:1)."

Cindy Sherman: imitation of life

Los Angeles, California : Prestel, 2016


 Introduction / Joanne Heyler -- Imitation of life; Appropriation, the cinematic impulse, and beyond / Philipp Kaiser -- Plates -- A whole theater; A conversation / Sofia Coppola and Cindy Sherman -- Works in the Broad collection and exhibition checklist.


 "The first career survey to explore the full range of the artist’s [Cindy Sherman’s] photographic series through the critical lens of cinema. Featuring more than 130 illustrations, ... it explores the artist’s use of cinematic artifice across almost 40 years of work."-- back cover.

 This magnificent book encompasses the full scope of Cindy Sherman’s career, with a special focus on the cinematic quality of her oeuvre. Known for slipping seamlessly behind the rotating masks of fairy tale characters, centerfold models, historical figures, and clowns, Cindy Sherman tackles popular tropes in her photographs and brilliantly dismantles the stereotypes surrounding the roles she embodies. Featuring illustrations that draw from the Broad collection, the world’s largest collection of Sherman’s photography, as well as other sources, this book traces Sherman’s most important works from 1977 to the present. Curator Philipp Kaiser, taking his cue from Sherman’s choice to title the book and exhibition after Douglas Sirk’s 1959 film Imitation of Life, analyzes Sherman’s work from the standpoint of cinema and traces how such a reading can impact the critical discourse around her photographs. The book also features a fascinating conversation between director Sofia Coppola and Cindy Sherman, which centers on Sherman’s use of filmic techniques to examine women’s roles and identities across a wide array of popular representations. This generously illustrated volume offers readers an intriguing new perspective from which to understand one of

Martinez -- Byron and the scandal of paternity : anonymity, plagiarism, and the natural rights of authors / Tilar J. Mazzeo -- Originality in the Enlightenment and beyond / John Vignaux Smyth


 Bridging what are usually perceived as two distinct areas of inquiry, this interdisciplinary volume begins with a reflection on the "origins" of literary and legal questions in the Enlightenment to consider their ramifications in the post-Enlightenment and contemporary world. Tying in to the growing scholarly interest in connections between law and literature, on the one hand, and to the contemporary interrogation of "originality" and "authorship," on the other hand, the present volume furthers research in the field by providing a dense study of the legal and historical context to re-examine our current assumptions about supposed earlier Enlightenment and Romantic ideals of individual authorship and originality

  This collection is a timely intervention in national debates about what constitutes original or plagiarized writing in the digital age. Somewhat ironically, the Internet makes it both easier to copy and easier to detect copying. The essays in this volume explore the complex issues of originality, imitation, and plagiarism, particularly as they concern students, scholars, professional writers, and readers, while also addressing a range of related issues, including copyright conventions and the ownership of original work, the appropriate dissemination of innovative ideas, and the authority and role of the writer/author. Throughout these essays, the contributors grapple with their desire to encourage and maintain free access to copyrighted material for noncommercial purposes while also respecting the reasonable desires of authors to maintain control over their own work
