This book should be a handy tool for teachers of mathematics as they develop plans to confront the problem of misconceptions, which are common with students that often have their own notion of certain mathematical concepts, right or not. The onus is on the teacher to detect those misconceptions and help students remedy them. This book is written for that purpose. Teachers could emulate the presented strategies that the book has elucidated. Teachers may also devise their own strategies based on the source of the misconception as presented in the book. The research segment of each identified misconception will be helpful if teachers want to apprise themselves with what the literature says about the concept. In general, the book is meant for teachers who want to help students engage in mathematics that emphasize conceptual understanding.

Despite the fact that, statistically, women of low socioeconomic status (SES) experience greater difficulty conceiving children, infertility is generally understood to be a wealthy, white woman’s issue. In Misconception, Ann V. Bell overturns such historically ingrained notions of infertility by examining the experiences of poor women and women of color. These women, so the stereotype would have it, are simply too fertile. The fertility of affluent and of poor women is perceived differently, and these perceptions have political and social consequences, as social policies have entrenched these ideas throughout U.S. history. Through fifty-eight in-depth interviews with women of both high and low SES, Bell begins to break down the stereotypes of infertility and show how such depictions consequently shape women’s infertility experiences. Prior studies have relied solely on participants recruited from medical clinics—a sampling process that inherently skews the participant base toward wealthier white women with health insurance. In comparing class experiences, Misconception goes beyond examining medical experiences of infertility to expose the often overlooked economic and classist underpinnings of reproduction, family, motherhood, and health in contemporary America.

Did Jesus command us to build giant churches or did He command us to build the kingdom? Did He ask for division because of political and denominational opinions and differences? Did Jesus command us to build wealth and prosperity?Did He command us to feed the poor? What about todays social justice, welfare, racial separation, and generational poverty? We are surrounded by great uncertainty and division changing trends, political shifts, and fast paced objectives consume the American culture today. Yet at the center of all this uncertaintythere lies a promise If you love me, you will keep my commands and you will remain in my love. Americas Misconception takes us to the center of our uncertainty. It challenges us to leave our misconceptions and presuppositions of God andof the Bible behind,andcalls us to accept His wordwith an open heart and mind. Now is the time to set aside our differences and come together. And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber The night is nearly over; the day is almost here oh come awake.

Listen to a short interview with Matthew Connelly Host: Chris Gondek - Producer: Heron & Crane Fatal Misconception is the disturbing story of our quest to remake humanity by policing national borders and breeding better people. As the population of the world doubled once, and then again, well-meaning people concluded that only population control could preserve the quality of life. This movement eventually spanned the globe and carried out a series of astonishing experiments, from banning Asian immigration to paying poor people to be sterilized. Supported by affluent countries, foundations, and non-governmental organizations, the population control movement experimented with ways to limit population growth. But it had to contend with the Catholic Church's ban on contraception and nationalist leaders who warned of race suicide. The ensuing struggle caused untold suffering for those caught in the middle--particularly women and children. It culminated in the horrors of sterilization camps in India and the one-child policy in China. Matthew Connelly offers the first global history of a movement that changed how people regard their children and ultimately the face of humankind. It was the most ambitious social engineering project of the twentieth century, one that continues to alarm the global community. Though promoted as a way to lift people out of poverty--perhaps even to save the earth--family planning became a means to plan other people's families. With its transnational scope and exhaustive research into such archives as Planned Parenthood and the newly opened Vatican Secret Archives, Connelly's withering critique uncovers the cost inflicted by a humanitarian movement gone terribly awry and urges renewed commitment to the reproductive rights of all people.

A Misconception removed is an English translation of Eik Ghalati Ka Izala written by the Promised Messiah (as) in 1901. The book addresses the issue of the true nature of the Promised Messiah's (as) status as a Prophet and Messenger of God and explains at length how his Prophethood does not in anyway contravene the concept of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat. The verse of Khataman Nabiyyincontains a prophecy that none except a Zill of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) can come after him. The Zill is never independent of the original. It is written in the book of Hadith that the Promised Messiah will be like the Holy Prophet (sa). The belief that Jesus Christ himself will come to this world will change the connotation of Khataman Nabiyyin. Denial of a Nabi (Prophet) is tantamount to believing that this umma has been deprived of Divine address and converse. Only, door for a law bearing Prophet has been closed after the Holy Prophet (sa). The Promised Messiah (as) says: 'Whenever I have denied being a Prophet or Messenger, it has only been in the sense that I have not brought an independent law nor am I an independent Prophet.' The coming of a Prophet and Messenger in the form of Buruz (spiritual manifestation of a Prophet) is substantiated by the Holy Quran.

The Genesis of Misconception is the first book in a trilogy called, appropriately The Misconception Trilogy. It presents a comparison between the Bible texts and archaeology as well as documented history of the ancient world. This book covers the time period from the beginning in Genesis until the emergence of Christianity. The author, a devoted Christian, at one point in his life questions belief shown to be inaccurate though archaeology and history. This book shows how stories from Mesopotamia may have been incorporated into the Bible. This book is primarily an analysis and critique of the technology, errors, strange stories, out of context narratives in the wrong time period using material, technology, or means of transport not invented, discovered, or mastered. As a protestant originally, the Bible was presented in the author's education as a true story or history of Israel and Judah by inspired writers or prophets. The reader is presented with facts and knowledge that stimulate thought provoking questioning of the accepted beliefs. The 3000-year-old stories and beliefs which most intelligent persons exempt from criticism are called into question. The worship of Yahweh or God was indeed practiced in Judah. In Israel it was Yahweh and his consort Asherah as well as the despised god Ba'al of the prophets. There were clearly interrelationships between Abraham's God El, Ba'al, and Yahweh or God. Judah was definitely where the history as well as the Bible originated, not Israel. This development is shown along with the proof that Judah bought and paid for the destruction of Israel. The reality of the ancient world is discussed along with the misconceptions with the hope of inciting thought and openness to the possibilities of other alternatives.

Love is a concept that has no official concept. It is what it is; Love. We have all gone through heartbreak. But only the lucky ones have experienced true love's kiss. You say love is this. I say love is that. But, if Love were a person, what would it say about itself? This book brings Love and Heartbreak to life. If you dare to eavesdrop on their conversation, be sure to prepare your emotions. Love and Heartbreak have plenty to say. The words that spill from their lips aren't easy to sip. Yet, it's medicine that equips.

A man is good for only one thing. Dr. Marietta Dalrymple wants a baby, but all she wants from a man is his sperm. A professor of evolutionary biology, Marietta can explain away romantic love with scholarly theories of why men and women are compelled to copulate. Monogamy, she believes, is a state most males can't achieve. So what is Marietta to do after she mistakes Cash "Jax" Jackson for the carefully screened sperm donor she hired to impregnate her? Especially when Jax doesn't know about the legal document the other man signed relinquishing all rights to the child. Jax soon sets his sights on more than Marietta's unborn baby. But can he prove to her that romantic love truly exists? Or will the secret he's keeping destroy any chance these unlikely lovers have at happiness?

The Virgin Birth Myth

If there was no biological relationship between Joseph and the child Mary bore, the story presented is not pertinent to the claim that Jesus is the Davidic Messiah on the basis of Josephs lineage.

The author of the Gospel of Matthew sought to portray alleged events in the life of Jesus as fulfillments of biblical passages. Ample evidence has shown that there is no validity to his claims. Lukes author merely states that a virginal conception took place. Both present a story their readers can relate to from the familiar Hellenistic worldview: a god impregnates a virgin thereby sending his hybrid son into the world to do a certain task. Matthew and Luke are not the originators of the core belief that a virginal conception took place. According to the Gospels, Mary conceived as a divinely impregnated virgin betrothed to a Davidic descendant named Joseph. If there was no biological relationship between Joseph and the child Mary bore, the story presented is not pertinent to the claim that Jesus is the Davidic Messiah on the basis of Josephs lineage. That Matthew and Luke solely through Joseph trace Jesus lineage in two variant forms becomes a meaningless exercise. As it became clear that attempts to connect Jesus to David through Joseph were futile, efforts were made to make the connection through Mary by claiming one or the other genealogy was really hers. It is to no avail. This too has failed. What most Christians do now is live in a theological state of denial maintaining that there are no real problems only unbelievers quibbling over minor points. Alas! What else can Christian believers do, but hide their heads in a theological sand box and blame quibblers?
