  1. Using Open-Ended Maths Tasks - High School

    We need to ask better questions to get better thinking from our students, and this book is geared towards helping us do just that. It is designed to help educators looking for a variety of strategies use short, innovative tasks based around the four main learning theories - Creative and Critical Thinking, Multiple Intelligences, Bloom's Taxonomy and Ryan's Thinker's Keys. Incorporating a substantive set of task cards covering Structure, Number, Space and Measurement, and Chance and Data, this book facilitates better thinking skills and comprehension in the secondary-school maths classroom.

  2. STEM Resources

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research refers to experiments conducted to address problems in those fields that can be tested using the scientific method. The scientific method is an inquiry process used to systematically study, investigate and to provide explanations for observed phenomenon in the natural world. This method is used by STEM professionals to answer questions they have about important world problems and usually includes carefully orchestrating a situation that allows them to observe, measure and test their ideas.

  8. Brain-Powered Science: Inquiry Learning With Unexpected Results

    Thomas O'Brien takes 33 science inquiry activities higher by using experiments based on the science of a 'discrepant event' - an experiment or demonstration in which the outcome is not what students expect. While this book is designed for use with Year 6-12 students, F-5 Australian Curriculum: Science content descriptions are also included to illustrate the appropriate prerequisite work that students should engage in prior to participating in these activities. This thought-provoking text includes many up-to-date online resources, as well as extensions to each of the physical science, biology and chemistry activities.
