This is the first book in a two-volume intensive one-year introductory course in Japanese, also suitable for those who wish to work at a slower pace. Students who finish this course will have a firm grasp of how the language works and enough knowledge of the writing system to tackle everyday written material with no more than a dictionary. Particular attention is paid to questions of grammar which foreign learners often find difficult, so Book One can also serve as a reference grammar. An Introduction to Modern Japanese uses both spoken and written forms from the outset. There are word lists for each lesson, and a comprehensive vocabulary for the whole course. Book One comprises fifty-two lessons which are accompanied by exercises and word lists in Book Two. The exercises ensure that the student has understood the grammar explained in the relevant lessons and give further practice in reading and recognising characters. Book Two also contains a full vocabulary, Japanese to English and English to Japanese.

This book is organized into three main sections: The first introduces the basic 46 katakana characters along with writing tips and opportunities to practice writing them. The secondteachers the usage rules that allow students to write all Japanese sounds, providing more opportunities for practice. The third strengthens students' skills through a wide range of exercises (word searches, crossword puzzles, fill in the blanks, visual discrimination, timed recognition quizzes, etc) designed to both increase the knowledge of the Japanese language and reinforce newly acquired writing skills. A set of flash cards printed on perforated cardstock and a list of suggested flash card activities, are also provided at the end of the book. Each of these cards introduces a katakana character along with the picture mnemonic that helps to recognize and remember it.

Learn Japanese from Some Guy: Quickly and Easily Master Beginner and Intermediate Level Japanese Grammar

Have you always wanted to learn how to speak, read and write Japanese? Well then, this is the perfect textbook for you! Hello, my name is Jeremy Rasmussen and I am just some guy. I wrote this Japanese grammar textbook for those who have an interest in learning the Japanese language, but may have found it a tad bit overwhelming at first. Being a student of the language myself, this book was written from the perspective of someone who had to personally struggle with the new linguistical concepts and ideas, allowing me to make the learning process much more streamlined for the native English speaking student. Inside this book you will find... Over 400 pages with color-coded example sentences Example sentences written in both Japanese and the Roman alphabet English translations for all example sentences Eighty -Some guy's pro tips, - which offer useful or interesting cultural information about Japanese or Japan as a country Chapter summaries to help reinforce what was learned Practice problems with answer keys to check your understanding of the material Who is this book for? Written with both the beginner and intermediate student in mind, this book is perfect for those who are just starting out, or for those who already have some working knowledge of the language and want to solidify what they may already know (while possibly learning a few new things along the way!). This book covers mainly JLPT level 5 and JLPT level 4 material, but sprinkled throughout, you will also some find some JLPT level 3 structures as well. -But Jeremy, you're just some guy...- When I first told people that I wanted to write a Japanese grammar textbook, the most common response was, -But you're not even Japanese. You're just some guy who learned Japanese...- And my response to them was always -That's right! I am just some guy. But so what?- The reality is that being a non-native Japanese speaker gives me a better understanding of the difficulties a native English speaker might face and how to better explain the grammatical details of the language more clearly and succinctly than a non-native English speaking person could. I, too, was once a beginner of the Japanese language and have definitely dealt with the frustrations it can bring. That's why I have done my best to provide what I feel are essential beginner/intermediate level grammar structures with simple, easy to understand explanations that will make the rest of your Japanese studying career much less stressful. As a child I always dreamed of being able to play my favorite games in Japanese, or watch and understand my favorite anime. Through a lot of hard work and effort I was finally able to make my dream a reality, and I sincerely hope that I will be able to impart on to you what I picked up along my Japanese learning adventure to help you accomplish your dreams as well.

An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides an accessible overview of the field of statistical learning, an essential toolset for making sense of the vast and complex data sets that have emerged in fields ranging from biology to finance to marketing to astrophysics in the past twenty years. This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, tree-based methods, support vector machines, clustering, and more. Color graphics and real-world examples are used to illustrate the methods presented. Since the goal of this textbook is to facilitate the use of these statistical learning techniques by practitioners in science, industry, and other fields, each chapter contains a tutorial on implementing the analyses and methods presented in R, an extremely popular open source statistical software platform. Two of the authors co-wrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and non-statisticians alike who wish to use cutting-edge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.

I am a firm believer in setting goals. It is the quickest way to make progress.Unfortunately, with goal-setting, there is usually the problem of maintaining motivation. By paying money and making plans to sit in a test (usually) in a different city; however, you are making a major investment of time and money. There are few pressures in life that can motivate better than time or money. That's why we always recommend any serious student of Japanese to sign up and study for the JLPT.Japanese Vocabulary for JLPT N4 covers all the vocabulary needed to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N4. This is the easiest of the test levels and is suitable for beginners who have mastered hiragana.Add the 1,200+ MP3s to your MP3 player, iPhone, or computer and listen while studying the book. Compilation MP3 files of each chapter's list are also included. These have each word followed by the example sentence for sequential learning.

"Visible Thinking is a research-based approach to teaching thinking that develops students' thinking dispositions, while at the same time deepening their understanding of the topics they study. Rather than a set of fixed lessons, Visible Thinking is an extensive and adaptable collection of practices that include thinking routines and the documentation of student thinking. The routines are a central element of the practical, functional and accessible nature of Visible Thinking. Thinking routines are easy to use mini-strategies that are repeatedly used in the classroom. They are a small set of questions or a short sequence of steps that can be used across various grade levels and content. Each routine targets a different type of thinking and by bringing their own content, teachers can integrate the routines into the fabric of their classrooms. Thinking Routines help direct student thinking and structure classroom discussion. Thinking becomes visible as the students' different viewpoints are expressed, documented, discussed and reflected upon"--

Are there computers in the classroom? Does it matter? Students, Computers and Learning: Making the Connection examines how students' access to and use of information and communication technology (ICT) devices has evolved in recent years, and explores how education systems and schools are integrating ICT into students' learning experiences. Based on results from PISA 2012, the report discusses differences in access to and use of ICT - what are collectively known as the digital divide that are related to students' socio-economic status, gender, geographic location, and the school a child attends. The report highlights the importance of bolstering students' ability to navigate through digital texts. It also examines the relationship among computer access in schools, computer use in classrooms, and performance in the PISA assessment. As the report makes clear, all students first need to be equipped with basic literacy and numeracy skills so that they can participate fully in the hyper-connected, digitised societies of the 21st century.
