  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.

  4. Engaging Minds in Science and Math Classrooms: The Surprising Power of Joy

    Daily decisions about incorporating creativity, choice and autonomy - integral components of engagement - can build students' self-efficacy, keep them motivated and strengthen their identities as scientists and mathematicians. In this book, the authors show you how to apply the joyful learning framework to instruction in science and maths. Acknowledging that many students - particularly girls and students of colour - do not see themselves as mathematics and scientists, the authors provide a series of suggested activities that are aligned with standards and high expectations to engage and motivate all learners.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
