This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 8th International Workshop on Automated Deduction in Geometry, ADG 2010, held in Munich, Germany in July 2010. The 13 revised full papers presented were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from the lectures given at the workshop. Topics addressed by the papers are incidence geometry using some kind of combinatoric argument; computer algebra; software implementation; as well as logic and proof assistants.

The concept of Flow was first explained by Csikszentmihalyi (1975), described as an “optimal experience,” he noted that artists were entirely caught up in their projects, working feverishly to finish them and then lose all interest in their work after completion. The incentive lies in the act of creativity itself. The person feels optimally challenged while totally immersed in the activity. At the heart of flow research is the motivational aspect of this experience. Flow motivates people to carry out certain activities repeatedly, seeking a challenge in the act and looking to improve their skills and abilities. In this book, this motivational aspect will be imbedded in and related to other theories of (intrinsic) motivation and empirical work on flow and performance. The book provides a review of the current flow research, with a focus on rigorous analysis on methodology. The author takes the time to present methodological aspects in flow research to qualify empirical work. In addition, this volume presents neuropsychological considerations and empirical correlates of flow experiences. The work also describes various theoretical integrations of the different paths being taken within the field of flow research. It presents what has been learned since the beginning of flow research, what is still open, and how the mission to understand and foster flow experience research should continue.
This fascinating title reviews the teaching and learning of school geometry from the perspective of both the new teacher and the more experienced teacher. It is designed to extend and deepen subject knowledge and to offer practical advice and ideas for the classroom in the context of current practice and research. Particular emphasis is given to the following elements: Understanding the key ideas of the geometry curriculum. Learning geometry effectively: lessons from research and current practice. Misconceptions and errors. Geometry reasoning: problem solving and proving. The role of technology in learning geometry.
