  2. Stepping into STEM

    The Stepping into STEM series is a collection of dynamic resources that provide guided lessons to integrate project-based learning into your science, technology, engineering and maths curricula. Each unit provides background information for teachers and students and moves from teacher-directed activities towards more open-ended activities. The culminating activity in each unit allows students to design their own unique "invention" or conduct an experiment of their own creation. Students will be challenged to work collaboratively, using a process that helps them "step into STEM" with greater competence and confidence. Each book in the Stepping into STEM series offers unique activities and opportunities for exploration.

  5. Teaching Mathematical Thinking: Tasks & Questions to Strengthen Practices and Processes

    This new resource by maths education expert Marian Small helps schools and districts to refine their teaching of standards-based mathematical practices. Small devotes a chapter to each of the eight standards of practice and includes a discussion of what each standard looks like in Years F-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Specific attention is given to helping students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them (Standard 1) and to encouraging students to create viable mathematical arguments and to effectively and respectfully critique the reasoning of others (Standard 3). The author also discusses how to formatively assess student performance for each practice standard.
