36.       Barnett, R. A., Zieglar, M. R, Byleen, K. E & Sobecki, D. (2009). Precalculus graph & models (3rd ed.)


The Barnett Graphs & Models series in college algebra and precalculus maximizes student comprehension by emphasizing computational skills, real-world data analysis and modeling, and problem solving rather than mathematical theory. Many examples feature side-by-side algebraic and graphical solutions, and each is followed by a matched problem for the student to work. This active involvement in the learning process helps students develop a more thorough understanding of concepts and processes. A hallmark of the Barnett series, the function concept serves as a unifying theme. A major objective of this book is to develop a library of elementary functions, including their important properties and uses. Employing this library as a basic working tool, students will be able to proceed through this course with greater confidence and understanding as they first learn to recognize the graph of a function and then learn to analyze the graph and use it to solve the problem. Applications included throughout the text give the student substantial experience in solving and modeling real world problems in an effort to convince even the most skeptical student that mathematics is really useful.

Sejajar dengan dengan perkembangan ilmu analisis wacana kini, buku ini juga bukan sahaja bergerak untuk matlamat kritis. Sembilan bab pertama berkisar pada matlamat deskriptif, manakala bab akhir adalah tentang matlamat kritis. Penekanan lebih kepada deskriptif kerana bahagian ini adalah topik – topik asas dalam analisis wacana yang perlu dikuasai. Matlamat deskriptif meliputi analisis dimensi tekstual dan dimensi kewacanaan, amanakala matlamat kritis memfokus kepada pemanfaatan analisi wacana untuk memahami dimensi lain di luar wacana, khususnya dalam masyarakat, seperti proses dan praktis sosial. Namun begitu, pada penghujung buku ini turut dimuatkan soalan perbincangan dan analisis bagi memberi kefahaman yang lebih kepada para pembaca, malah ada antara soalan berkenaan boleh mencetuskan kajian lanjut. Konsep atau istilah tertentu turut diberikan dalam bahasa inggeris supaya pembaca boleh mengetahui konsep berkenaan dan boleh merujuk lanjut buku dalam bahasa tersebut.

39.       Roff, W. R. (2003). Nasionalisme melayu.

CALL NO: 320.54009595 ROF

Roff bukan sahaja mengisi sesuatu kekosongan, bahkan telah menulis sesuatu  yang wajarnya dapat diistilahkan sebagai sejarah sosialogis yang pertama tentang masyrakat Melayu moden. Buku ini bukanlah sebuah karya sejarah yang berupa pemeriksaan terhadap perubahan sosial yang ditimbulkan oleh keadaan sekeliling yang berubah, iaitu munculnya golongan atasan yang baru dalam lapangan politik yang menjadi inti analisisnya.
Kita diperkenalkan dengan tiga golongan atasan, yang berbeza – beza kerana asal – usul sosial mereka dan yang lebih penting lagi, oleh orientasi pendidikan dan seterusnya kebudayaan dan politik mereka. Yang mula – mula di antara mereka datang daripada borjois Islam yang warak, yang kebanyakan tinggal di Negeri – negeri Selat. Golongan yang kedua ialah intelek Melayu. Mereka memperoleh pendidikan di sekolah – sekolah Melayu dan datang daripada kalangan petani dan bukan daripada latar belakang kota. Golongan yang ketiga ialah orang – orang Melayu rapat dengan istana serta mendapat pendidikan Inggeris. Oleh sebab mereka menikmati kedudukan dan kemudahan tradisional serta pendidikan moden, maka golongan ini, dengan hubungan rapatnya dengan penjajah, menjadi golongan yang dominan dalam perjuangan nasionalisme Melayu.

2.       Ahmad Adam. (2006). Melayu, nasionalisme radikal dan pembinaan bangsa.

CALL NO: 305.89923 AHM

Kendati pun sejarah orang Melayu dalam gerakan kebangsaan di Malaysia telah pernah ditulis, tetapi tidak banyak pengarang yang dengan jelas cuba mentakrifkan siapa dia yang disebut Melayu itu dan bagaimana, di sebalik keterikatan orang Melayu kepada nilai-nilai tradisionalnya, agama Islam masih tetap berperanan ampuh dalam mencitrakan budaya dan kerangka nilai bangsa ini hingga ke zaman sekarang. Berbekalkan nilai-nilai inilah, baik yang bersifat keagamaan mahupun adat, orang Melayu mengharungi perubahan menuju kemodenan dan ini diejawantahkan dalam gerakan politik dan Islam radikal yang cuba menggembleng orang Meayu menentang penjajahan British. Buku ini menghimpun kan beberapa esei yang ditulis berdasarkan penyelidikan, untuk cuba membicarakan sejarah asal-usul bangsa Melayu dalam konteks gugusan kepulauan Melayu, pembentukan jati diri, dan kaitannya dengan gagasan” kemelayuan”, serta kesedaran kebangsaan yang lahir sebelum Perang Dunia Kedua akibat sentuhan pengaruh dari seberang Selat Melaka. Secara khusus buku ini menumpukan perhatian kepada sejarah pertumbuhan dan perkembangan politik radikal dalam kalangan orang Melayu dan cuba membahaskan tanggapan serta respons mereka terhadap keberadaan bangsa-bangsa bukan Melayu dalam upaya pembentukan suatu bangsa Malaya dan kemudiannya Malaysia.

3.       Idris Aman. (2006). Bahasa dan kepimpinan: Analisis wacana Mahathir Mohamad.

CALL NO: 810.5108835 IDR

Kajian wacana kepimpinan Mahathir ini menerapkan kerangka teoretikal Analisis Wacana Kritis, satu pendekatan yang prihatin dan mengikut wacana sebagai sebahagian proses sosial yang dimajukan oleh Norman Fairclough. Kerangka tersebut menelusuri wacana daripada tiga dimensi: interpretasi aspek amalan wacana, huraian fitur tekstualnya, dan penjelasan proses sosial yang tumpat di dalamnya berasaskan hubungan dialektiknya dengan dapatan daripada dua dimensi yang pertama itu. Daripada dimensi yang pertama, iaitu analisis amalan wacana didapati wacana kepimpinan tersebut dihasilkan dengan penglibatan aktif pewacana sendiri, disebarkan serta ditransformasikan dengan memadai, dan dibina bagi kepentingan bersama antara pemimpin dan rakyat. Di samping itu, wacana kepimpinan ini juga didapati mengamalkan pendekatan memahamkan khalayak serta menarik kebersamaan mereka melalui pemanfaatan unsur intertekstualiti yang tidak rencam dan interdiskursiviti beberapa jenis wacana lain, iaitu laporan, penerangan, hujahan, dan ekspresi. Daripada dimensi yang kedua, iaitu analisis tekstual pula, didapati wacana tersebut banyak memanfaatkan modaliti imperatif permintaan yang bersifat obligasi pelbagai aras, metafora pertanian dan api, kata kemiliteran, dan kata alternatif. Daripada dapatan analisis dua dimensi di atas, kemudiannya melalui dimensi yang ketiga, iaitu analisis sosial dirumuskan bahawa di dalam wacana yang dikaji ini tumpat dua praktis kepimpinan, iaitu kepimpinan orientasi khalayak dan kepimpinan tegas.

6.       Hamedi Mohd Adnan. (2013). Majalah Melayu selepas perang.

CALL NO: 070.57209595 HAM

Penerbitan majalah dapat dilakukan dengan sempurna seandainya penerbit memberikan pertimbangan yang saksama kepada tiga elemen yang menjadi tiangnya, iaitu editorial, sirkulasi, dan iklan. Kandungan editorial bertanggungjawab untuk menarik pembaca dan dengan demikian akan meningkatkan sirkulasi. Peningkatan sirkulasi pula selalunya mendorong peningkatan pendapatan daripada iklan. Untuk membolehkan majalah bertahan di pasaran, ketiga-tiga tiang haruslah bantu-membantu, samalah seperti sebuah kerusi; untuk selesa diduduki, masing-masing tiang kerusi mestilah kukuh dan seimbang. Jika salah satu tiang lemah atau tidak seimbang dengan yang lain, kerusi akan goyang dan mungkin tumbang. Bagaimanakah situasi editorial majalah Melayu selepas Perang? Mampukah kandungan editorial majalah menarik perhatian pembaca sehingga sirkulasinya meningkat? Bagaimanakah pula dengan sambutan pengiklan terhadap ruang-ruang iklan yang disediakan oleh majalah Melayu? Dan akhirnya, adakah penerbitan majalah Melayu pada periode itu menguntungkan? Inilah antara persoalan yang akan dikupas dalam buku ini.

CALL NO: 372.623 LAT

'This book is a useful addition to any staff library. What makes it different to many other similar books is that it shows teachers that speaking, listening and reading create the foundations for writing. Tested in schools, staff said: "It is a very useful framework for action-research based upon secure theory. When deciding classroom strategies, it is easy to find what you are looking for and the chapter summaries are very helpful. Some of the staff development and training suggestions are very practical and we are trying them out. We found the emphasis upon class novels and the class discussion that follows, very important, especially when linked to the excellent examples of children's writing." This book may appear to some as theoretical and 'academic', but this is why it will be valuable. It does what the title says because it shows how children learn to write. It starts at the beginning and saves diving into the latest trend.Perhaps its best recommendation is that every school that was asked to look at it said, 'It's good and we have ordered a copy' - John Lilly, independent education consultant 'The chapter on the Taxonomy of Writing Purposes will be useful for planning and those on extending and enhancing writing will definitely be helpful in many day-to-day situations' - Nicholas Bielby, Times Educational Supplement This book outlines the processes which are involved when children learn to write. The author shows how certain strategies can improve children's progress in writing. Dealing with the age range three to 13, the book addresses issues to do with: - the gender gap - children with English as an additional language - left-handedness Dorothy Latham includes ideas for sound and easy ongoing assessment of writing. The book is written in line with the requirements of the English National Curriculum and The National Literacy Strategy Framework for England, but is not limited to them.Topics also covered include: - brain development and structures - the acquisition of speech - language and thinking - working memory - secretarial skills - stages in compositional development - writing purposes and cross-curricular applications - strategies for improving self-generated writing - using reading to improve writing - using speech and drama to improve writing and - ten ways to improve children's writing.

17.       Fullan, M. (2005). Fundamental change.

CALL NO: 370.19 FUN

The chapters in this volume are divided into three broad categories: (1) those dealing with macro educational change at the societal level (2) those relating to large scale initiatives based on particular reform strategies (3) those pertaining to fundamental transformations of professional development strategies, indeed to fundamental reform in the profession of teaching itself.
There has been a growing dissatisfaction over the past two decades about the slow pace of educational reform. Whatever successes that have been obtained have been confined to individual schools what succeeded here and there. Missing was any sense that educational change could be accomplished on a large scale sustained basis.
The chapters in this book attempt to push forward on the agenda of fundamental change. This volume (part of 4 volumes) is the third section in the International Handbook of Educational Change.

CALL NO: 512.5 DEF

Linear Algebra with Applications is an introductory text targeted to second or advanced first year undergraduates in engineering or mathematics. The organization of this text is motivated by the authors' experience which tells them what essential concepts should be mastered by students in a one semester undergraduate Linear Algebra course. The authors' main objectives are to fully develop each topic before moving on and to connect topics naturally. The authors take great care to meet both these objectives, because this organization will allow instructors teaching from this text to stay on task so that each topic can be covered with the depth required before progressing to the next logical one. As a result the reader is prepared for each new unit and there is no need to repeat a concept in a subsequent chapter when it is utilized.
This text is geared towards an introductory linear algebra course taken by first or second year undergraduate students. However, it offers the opportunity to introduce the importance of abstraction, not only in mathematics, but in many other areas where Linear Algebra is used. The textbook’s approach is to take advantage of this opportunity by presenting abstract vector spaces as early as possible. Throughout the text, the authors are mindful of the difficulties that students at this level have with abstraction and introduce new concepts first through examples which gently illustrate the idea. To motivate the definition of an abstract vector space, and the subtle concept of linear independence, the authors use addition and scalar multiplication of vectors in Euclidean Space. The authors have strived to create a balance between computation, problem solving, and abstraction. This approach equips students with the necessary skills and problem solving strategies in an abstract setting that allows for a greater understanding and appreciation for the numerous applications of the subject.
