  1. 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.

  6. It's TIME: Themes and Imperatives for Mathematics Education

    The US National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics proposes a framework for mathematics education leaders to develop curriculum, a culture, instruction and assessments to ensure that all students learn the mathematics knowledge at the high levels outlined in the Common Core State Standards. The authors present three supportive conditions and ten imperatives necessary to reach this goal, providing practical recommendations for how each component can be achieved. While It's TIME has been written to address the implementation of the CCSS, it provides clear, research-based guidance on how to raise achievement in mathematics for every student and effectively implement curriculum standards in every classroom.

  7. Maths in the Real World of Design and Art: Geometry, Measurements and Projections

    Maths in the Real World of Design and Art shows students how geometry, measurements and projections work together to create all the unique patterns and designs around us. Lessons in this book cover angles and triangles, polygons and circles, patterns, symmetry, shapes and length, perimeter, area and three-dimensional shapes. Students learn how these geometric principles can be used together to create buildings, products and artwork. Students will incorporate geometric concepts and measuring skills to create a model Geo-Lab, a laboratory used to further the study of mathematics. This revised edition includes a table of related Australian Curriculum: Mathematics content descriptions for Years 5-8, helping teachers to plan curriculum-aligned lessons incorporating lessons from this book.

  8. Differentiated Activities and Assessments Across the Australian Curriculum

    A significant advantage of working with the Australian Curriculum is the ability to modify existing content descriptions for broader curriculum application. Because they lend themselves so readily to differentiation, Australian Curriculum content descriptions can lead beyond lower-level test-prep answers to higher-level thinking and mastery of 21st century skills. Carolyn Coil's practical examples show educators how to use differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment to promote individual student achievement. Within this framework, this book addresses over 50 topics in the Australian Curriculum learning areas of English, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science.

  9. Uncomplicating Algebra to Meet Common Core Standards in Math, K-8

    Marian Small shows teachers how to uncomplicated the teaching of algebra by focusing on the most important ideas that students need to grasp. Organised by year level around the CCSS for Mathematics, Small shares approaches that will lead to a deeper and richer understanding within standards-based learning environments. The book then launches with kindergarten, where the first relevant standard is found in the operations and algebraic thinking domain, and ends with Year 8, where the focus is on working with linear equations and functions. In each section the relevant standard is presented, followed by a discussion of important underlying ideas associated with that standard, as well as thoughtful, concept-based questions that can be used for classroom instruction, practice or assessment.

  10. Proficiency Scales for English and Mathematics Standards

    Because the generic form of a proficiency scale is comparable across teachers, topics, subject areas and year levels, it allows teachers to compile summative scores for specific topics and increases the reliability of test design and scoring. Whether you are actively engaged in implementing a Marzano Institute initiative in your school or simply need guidance when it comes to measuring student learning, this book can help. Designed to supplement your existing practice, it contains over 110 proficiency scales that will bring new rigour and focus to your teaching and assessment practice, as well as aid in creating unique proficiency scales for the Australian Curriculum.
