RRP $287.99

Summarizing data derived from a four-year combined longitudinal/ cross-sectional comparative study of the implementation of one standards-based middle school curriculum program, Mathematics in Context, this book demonstrates the challenges of conducting comparative longitudinal research in the reality of school life.


The study was designed to answer three questions:



  • What is the impact on student performance of the Mathematics in Context instructional approach, which differs from most conventional mathematics texts in both content and expected pedagogy?



  • How is this impact different from that of traditional instruction on student performance?



  • What variables associated with classroom instruction account for variation in student performance?



The researchers examined a range of variables that affected data collection. These variations highlight the need to study the effects of the culture in which student learning is situated when analyzing the impact of standards-based curricula on student achievement.


This book is directed to educational researchers interested in curriculum implementation, mathematics educators interested in the effects of using reform curriculum materials in classrooms, evaluators and research methodologists interested in structural modeling and scaling of instructional variables, and educational policy makers concerned about reform efforts.

This book entitled "Environmental Impact Assessment and Management," embodies 15 chapters covering a wide spectrum. Chapter 1 contains details of EIA, Basic elements and Methodologies. Further, important guidelines to be followed before establishing industries, water related projects and transport related projects are narrated in Chapter 2. Important case studies of EIA viz, second stage expansion of Malpe fishing harbour, Human impact on Himalayan Ecosystem, Konkan Railway Project, Heavy metal pollution in the Coovum river, an impact prediction for an irrigation project and impact of cement making on the air quality of Coimbatore, are dealt in Chapter 3. Once a project comes into existence, it results in side effects of the immediate environment which are evident on the consecutive 5-10 years of operation. Therefore, its efficiency and pollution abatement systems should be checked and corrected in a manner similar to financial auditing and this aspect has been incorporated in Chapter 4. Now-a-days due to the rapid process of urbanization, all the cities of India have accumulated a lot of filth leading to ghasty smell, loss of property value and the spread of diseases. In order to have a clean environment, we have to have a systematic refuse management package for Indian conditions. As illustrations of this view, the urban solid waste management in Hyderabad, Shimoga and Rourkee cities have been explained in the Chapter 5 and 6 respectively. The consecutive chapters deal on various other aspects such as coastal zone management, deforestation, impact of mining on fisheries, wild life management, termite pest control, bioremediation of wastes by hydrophytes, role of remote sensing in EIA, Kaiga environment and management of food protection.
