This book is about mathematical thinking, learning and understanding. It is about ways in which good representations capture mathematical ideas, and about building broad and deep knowledge by understanding the links between those ideas. It draws on research in mathematics education and psychology to explain why some misunderstandings and confusions arise for almost everyone, and it describes ways to think about mathematical ideas correctly and with confidence.

The year’s finest mathematical writing from around the world This annual anthology brings together the year’s finest mathematics writing from around the world. Featuring promising new voices alongside some of the foremost names in the field, The Best Writing on Mathematics 2018 makes available to a wide audience many pieces not easily found anywhere else—and you don’t need to be a mathematician to enjoy them. These essays delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday aspects of math, offering surprising insights into its nature, meaning, and practice—and taking readers behind the scenes of today’s hottest mathematical debates. James Grime shows how to build subtly mischievous dice for playing slightly unfair games and Michael Barany traces how our appreciation of the societal importance of mathematics has developed since World War II. In other essays, Francis Su extolls the inherent values of learning, doing, and sharing mathematics, and Margaret Wertheim takes us on a mathematical exploration of the mind and the world—with glimpses at science, philosophy, music, art, and even crocheting. And there’s much, much more. In addition to presenting the year’s most memorable math writing, this must-have anthology includes an introduction by the editor and a bibliography of other notable pieces on mathematics. This is a must-read for anyone interested in where math has taken us—and where it is headed.

Customer Experience Management Rebooted

Walden shows why most customer experience management fails to improve the customer’s real experience and how to concentrate on the subjective emotional perceptions that drive the customer’s actual “experience” rather than the quantitative service efficiency metrics gathered by most CX tools. Customer experience management is not about managing every objective “experience” your customers have with you. It’s about understanding, measuring and creating “experiences” that customers “value”. So while service and efficiency are wonderful things, they represent "business as usual"; the ticket to the game, the platform from which “experiences” are created not the experience itself! The message of this book is that businesses are at risk! Their uber focus on efficiency is leading them to miss the chance to connect more closely with their customer base and deliver on the creative potential of their brand. They ignore the fact that technology is an enabler of the “experience” it is not “the experience”. Customers are not data – they are people: living, breathing, contradictory, infuriating bundles of cognitive and emotionally-driven responses to stimuli. “Experience” deals with how customers think, feel and behave – the things that motivate them to act which go beyond frequently forgettable efficiency. This means differentiating by providing new and better experiences based on a deeper understanding of what motivates customers to buy. To do that we must leave the objective, quantitative, world of quality management and enter the subjective, qualitative, world of customer’s psychology. Walden reboots our understanding of customer experience, showing us what it means, how to measure it, what we need to do to manage it and how we can gain financially from it. Understand, measure, create and do – but first of all, understand.

FROM THE AUTHORMy children have filled a scrapbook of memories. Memories that are very similar to, perhaps duplicates of, the memories held by millions of fathers. Undistinguished, common memories that yet are priceless. These memories are largely fond ones. Conversations, attempts to change hair color, soccer games, skiing, and holidays.But not all of the memories bring smiles. Arguments over curfews, sickness and futile efforts to fix something wrong. Some memories are of anger, concern, and worry.These memories form a collage. A collage that has no obvious coherence or obvious messages. These memories do not portray complex lives, gripping struggles, nobility of purpose or exotic settings. But a fellow father, looking at my collage, might recognize my memories as much like his own. And he and I, looking at our almost identical collages, would smile at our "art" and share our good fortune that our collages have so many pictures.
