  1. Mathematical Imagining: A Routine for Secondary Classrooms

    Mathematical imagining describes an original routine that gives students space and time to imagine a mathematical situation and then revise, discuss and act upon the mental images they create. You can use this creative routine in your secondary classroom to glimpse your students’ thinking and discover teaching opportunities, while empowering them to create their own mathematics.

  2. Making Math Stick: Classroom Strategies That Support the Long-term Understanding of Math Concepts

    Making math stick shows teachers how to foster classroom learning experiences that will help students to better understand, retain and apply key maths concepts. The book explores why we need a different approach to teaching maths – one that leads students to a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts that will stick with them long after the test is handed in.

  3. Novel Engineering, K–8: An Integrated Approach to Engineering and Literacy

    Novel engineering, K–8 shows how your students can work through engineering design challenges inspired by a broad range of literature – novels and short stories, biographies and histories, or even picture books. By way of introduction, the book offers clear conceptual background and practical advice on how the approach works: Your students pull information from literature to identify a problem. Then, using details from the story or text, they go through an engineering design process to develop functional solutions for their ‘clients’ – the book’s characters. To support your efforts and bring the concept to life, the book gives you five in-depth case studies featuring the use of novels, a biography and a nonfiction historical text.

  4. STEM, Standards, and Strategies for High-Quality Units

    Do you, your school, or your school district want to align your science curriculum with state standards while meeting the growing demand for STEM instruction? If so, this is the book for you. It’s a guide to creating coherent, high-quality classroom materials that make standards and STEM work together in ways that are both effective for learning and practical for teaching. The author of STEM, standards, and strategies for high-quality units is thought leader and curriculum expert Rodger W Bybee. He wrote it to be useful for individual teachers, professional learning communities and professional developers. The book offers explicit directions for how these different groups can use the book’s background information and activities at each step of developing a standards-based STEM unit.

  6. Science in a Garden: Activities and Projects for the Outdoor Classroom, Years F–6

    Permaculture expert and educator Ross Mars is back with another collection of hands-on projects and investigations that provide students with opportunities to observe, understand and contribute to a thriving garden ecosystem. Students will follow the journey from theory to final product through the book’s six parts: understanding science in the garden, growth in the garden, changes in the garden, animals in the garden, human use of the garden and products from the garden. Each activity is aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science and the Australian Curriculum: Technologies as well as the cross-curriculum priority of sustainability. Plus, teachers can use the handy index of curriculum links to assist with their planning.

  7. The Changing Earth: STEM Road Map for Middle School, Grade 8

    The changing earth outlines a journey that will steer your students towards authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. Like the other volumes in the series, this book is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F–12 classrooms. This interdisciplinary, six-lesson module uses project- and problem-based learning to introduce the powerful idea that Earth is shaped by ongoing geologic processes that can alter our landscape in a short time. The module also helps students appreciate the nature and process of science, including the roles of evidence, conjecture and modelling. Students will learn about the rock cycle, including how its driven by the Sun’s energy and heat from Earth’s core.

  8. Human Impacts on Our Climate: STEM Road Map for Middle School, Grade 6

    Human impacts on our climate outlines a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. Like the other volumes in the series, this book is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F–12 classrooms. This interdisciplinary, three-lesson module uses project- and problem-based learning to help students investigate aspects of climate change that have been driven by the rise in global temperatures over the past century. Working in teams, students will use an engineering design process to identify a local environmental problem, develop a model to help monitor and minimise its impact and create a presentation about their findings.

  10. Cooperative Learning & Science: Elementary Activities, Grades 3-5

    Inspire the next generation of scientists! This book has ready-to-use activities and ideas focusing on those core ideas in life science, earth science, physical science and engineering and technology. But the standards do more than tell us what students should learn, they call for scientific practices including communication, collaboration, inquiry and problem-solving. The activities in this book are all based on cooperative, interactive structures that have students work in pairs and in teams to build, deepen and apply their science knowledge. Through interaction, students explore science at a deeper level and have more fun doing it! Stimulate students’ interest in science with these ready-to-go, engaging activities.

  11. STEM: Engaging Hands-On Challenges Using Everyday Materials, Foundation

    STEM: Engaging hands-on challenges using everyday materials, Foundation was designed to walk you through exciting STEM challenges step-by-step! This series provides grade-level appropriate student challenges guaranteed to stimulate students as they ask, imagine, plan, create (build), test and improve. Each exploration in this book provides students with meaningful experiences to help them to understand particular concepts by using three sequential steps: a set of introductory and cross-curricular activities, two small-group centres and a science or engineering challenge. This progression of activities is designed to introduce students to new concepts, to give them hands-on experience with those concepts and to challenge them to use what they learned to solve a related problem.
