The book describes up-to-date applications and relevant theoretical results. These applications come from various places, but the most important one, numerically speaking, is the internet based educational system ALEKS. The ALEKS system is bilingual English-Spanish and covers all of mathematics, from third grade to the end of high school, and chemistry. It is also widely used in higher education because US students are often poorly prepared when they reach the university level. The chapter by Taagepera and Arasasingham deals with the application of knowledge spaces, independent of ALEKS, to the teaching of college chemistry. The four chapters by Albert and his collaborators strive to give cognitive interpretations to the combinatoric structures obtained and used by the ALEKS system. The contribution by Eppstein is technical and develops means of searching the knowledge structure efficiently.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The editors of this book have compiled a set of papers that provide insight into knowledge space theory and related practical deployment issues. ... anyone involved in a learning discipline will find this book to be a helpful guide to the terms, issues, and theory development of knowledge spaces. I recommend it for researchers and practitioners willing to improve their understanding of current knowledge space theory and the possibilities for its deployment." (F. J. Ruzic, Computing Reviews, November, 2013)
