From the Garden to the Table reinforces nutrition education using the garden as a laboratory for learning. The garden provides opportunities for children to discover fresh fruits and vegetables, make healthier food choices, and become better nourished1. The garden is an innovative teaching tool that incorporates hands-on activities that allow children to learn by doing. From the Garden to the Table is an excellent way to teach children about food origins, nutrition, and healthy eating behaviors. The curriculum uses a combination of indoor-outdoor gardening experiences, to engage children in exploration and inquiry. Children are actively involved in planting, maintaining and harvesting edible plants and witness their life-cycle from seed to harvest. From the Garden to the Table activities are organized sequentially. Indoor classroom activities reinforce concepts learned in the outdoor garden. The indoor and outdoor sessions should be implemented at the same time. From the Garden to the Table reinforces the experiential learning process through activities that are initiated indoors and then moved outdoors or the reverse. Both the indoor and outdoor classroom environments are dynamic extensions of one another. They are wonderful settings for nutrition-gardening learning to take place.

There are just a few weeks to go until the FIFA U-17 World Cup kicks off in Mexico. This 14th edition of the tournament will not only be a showcase for the football stars of tomorrow, but will also mark a milestone in the history of the FIFA Quality Concept for Football Turf, which since 2001 has set reliable quality standards for football turf pitches worldwide. Apart from being some of the most admired football stars in the world today, Alessandro Del Piero, Francesco Totti, Iker Casillas, Ronaldinho, Nwankwo Kanu, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas have something else in common, too: they all made their international debuts at the finals of a FIFA U-17 World Cup. And it will be no different this year, when the 24 best U-17 teams come together in Mexico from 18 June to 10 July 2011 to compete for the title of world champions. Once again, the focus will be on up-and-coming young players, who will use the tournament as a springboard for their international careers. The players will have come a long way from their first tentative kick-abouts to playing in the biggest, most famous stadiums in the world. FIFA RECOMMENDED football turf ensures equal conditions – wherever, whenever In comparison to their footballing heroes, many of today’s young players often already have experience playing on high-quality football turf from an early age. Football turf is being used increasingly around the world, particularly in areas where the consistent maintenance and care of natural grass is not possible because of climatic conditions or is simply not feasible from a financial point of view. As well as providing the operators of pitches for community or professional use with a series of advantages, high-quality football turf particularly benefits the players. Not least, it means that they can train continuously in the same conditions wherever they are in the world. That all players are given the same chances also benefits youth development. Football turf has been a feature of the FIFA U-17 World Cup for some time now. As far back as 2005, at the U-17 World Cup in Peru, all 32 matches were played on modern, FIFA-certified football turf pitches. As part of its commitment to quality assurance for football turf, FIFA paid particular attention to that tournament in Peru, and it was used as the benchmark for other matches on natural turf. In addition to the players’ opinions on the playability of the pitches, which were resoundingly positive, even among those players with no previous experience of playing on artifical turf, a number of other factors were taken into account. For example, the FIFA Medical Assessment and Research Centre (F-MARC) compared all the matches in Peru with previous U-17 World Cups. The results are testament to the advances made in the area of football turf, with both the number and type of injuries almost exactly the same as those incurred on natural grass. The findings of further medical studies have also yet to reveal any significant differences between the two types of playing surface....

Compositor: ICC Macmillan Cover Design by Meghan J. Shupe Cover Art by Radius Images (RM) Please visit our Web site at: www.amscopub.com When ordering this book, please specify:... PREFACE Algebra 2 and Trigonometry is a new text for a course in intermediate algebra and trigonometry that continues the approach that has made Amsco a leader in presenting mathematics in a modern, integrated manner. Over the last decade, this approach has undergone numerous changes and refinements to keep pace with ever-changing technology. This textbook is the final book in the three-part series in which Amsco parallels the integrated approach to the teaching of high school mathematics promoted by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in its Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and mandated by the New York State Board of Regents in the Mathematics Core Curriculum. The text presents a range of materials and explanations that are guidelines for achieving a high level of excellence in their understanding of mathematics. In this book: ✔ The real numbers are reviewed and the understanding of operations with irrational numbers, particularly radicals, is expanded. ✔ The graphing calculator continues to be used as a routine tool in the study of mathematics. Its use enables the student to solve problems that require computation that more realistically reflects the real world. The use of the calculator replaces the need for tables in the study of trigonometry and logarithms. ✔ Coordinate geometry continues to be an integral part of the visualization of algebraic and trigonometric relationships. ✔ Functions represent a unifying concept throughout. The algebraic functions introduced in Integrated Algebra 1 are reviewed, and exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions are presented. ✔ Algebraic skills from Integrated Algebra 1 are maintained, strengthened, and expanded as both a holistic approach to mathematics and as a bridge to advanced studies. ✔ Statistics includes the use of the graphing calculator to reexamine range, quartiles, and interquartile range, to introduce measures of dispersion such as variance and standard deviation, and to determine the curve that best represents a set of bivariate data.
