Super Sand Castle Saturday
Stuart J. Murphy
0064467201
January 1999
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-Under Larry the Lifeguard's watchful eye, three friends compete to see who can build the tallest sand castle, the deepest moat, and the longest wall. When they start to measure the results, trouble begins because each contestant uses a different nonstandard unit of measurement. Sarah's tower is three shovels tall; Juan's is only two shovels tall, but Sarah's shovel is much smaller than Juan's. And voil?-the concept of measurement is aptly and creatively presented. Murphy does a good job of imparting the math lesson while delivering a natural story. Gorton's stylized airbrushed acrylics add a whimsical touch. The multiethnic cast frolics on the beach with energy. The illustrations clearly show the comparisons while the children are measuring and complete the picture of how a moat that's two spoons...

From Booklist
The term measurement is used broadly here. Neither mathematics nor engineering are neglected, but some 33 other categories are covered, such as music, sports, geological time, and military rank.The alphabetically arranged entries range from a few words to a page or more. The subject field from which the term is taken is given, and frequently its origin as well. Charts and graphs are used when helpful. Definitions are understandable, even when the term defined is technical. Not only are terms defined directly under their own name, but they are frequently grouped under broader terms. Sports measurements, for example, are found under the name of the sport. The ranges of musical instruments are found under the category of instrument: brass, string, woodwinds, etc. Under Coins and Currencies of the World monetary...


An Introduction to Mixed-Signal IC Test and Measurement (The Oxford Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering)
Mark Burns, Gordon W. Roberts
0195140168
December 14, 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Integrated circuits incorporating both digital and analog functions have become increasingly prevalent in the semiconductor industry. Mixed-signal IC test and measurement has grown into a highly specialized field of electrical engineering. However, test engineering is still a relatively
unknown profession compared to IC design engineering. It has become harder to hire and train new engineers to become skilled mixed-signal test engineers. The slow learning curve for mixed-signal test engineers is largely due to the shortage of written materials and university-level courses on the
subject of mixed-signal testing. While many textbooks have been devoted to the subject of digital test and testability, the same cannot be said for analog and mixed-signal automated test and measurement.

Mensuration and Proportion Signs: Origins and Evolution
Anna Maria Berger
0198162308
March 1993
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In the fourteenth century composers and theorists invented mensuration and proportion signs that allowed them increased flexibility and precision in notating a wide range of rhythmic and metric relationships. The origin and interpretation of these signs is one of the least understood and most
complex issues in music history. This study represents the first attempt to see the origin of musical mensuration and proportion signs in the context of other measuring systems of the fourteenth century. Berger analyzes the exact meaning of every mensuration and proportion sign in music and theory
from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, and offers revisions of many currently-held views concerning the significance and development of early time signatures.

Review
Dennis L. Jackson : "Dr. Viswanathan has made an important contribution to the array of books available on measurement. In his book, he calls the reader’s attention to types of errors encountered in measurement, how they are made, and most importantly, how researchers can go about identifying and eliminating them. If you are doing research, whether you are developing measures or using already developed measures, the information in this book will help you to understand how to investigate the limitations of the measures you work with."
Dougal Hutchison : "This book provides a useful systematic introduction to an important and neglected area, that of measurement error in the social sciences. It will prove valuable both to students studying this topic in courses, and to Ph.D. students and researchers starting to carry out...
