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.

It is possible to read Japanese knowing only a limited number of kanji, but it is not possible with only a limited number of katakana or hiragana-one must know all of them. Let's Learn Hiragana, and its companion volume Let's Learn Katakana, is a textbook that introduces the learner to the basics of one of these fundamental Japanese scripts. Being a workbook, it contains all the exercises that allow the student to master hiragana by the time the book has been finished. Let's Learn Hiragana is a classic in the field, and the huge number of students that have used it successfully is a sign of its preeminence as a self-study guide.

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.

"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"--
