  8. Construction Materials: STEM Road Map for High School

    What if you could challenge your high school students to gain an understanding of the feats of engineering required to build high-rise buildings - and maybe even improve them? Construction Materials outlines a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. The series is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F-12 classrooms. This book is an interdisciplinary module that uses project-and problem-based learning. It gives students an inside look at the complex technologies and science behind the buildings they may take for granted. They'll examine micro- and macro-properties of construction materials, particularly those of high-rise buildings, through a unit divided into three sections.
