  5. Models-Based Science Teaching

    Humans perceive the world by constructing mental models - telling a story, interpreting a map, reading a book. Every way we interact with the world involves mental models, whether creating new ones or building on existing models with the introduction of new information. In Models-Based Science Teaching, author and educator Steven Gilbert explores the concept of mental models in relation to the learning of science and how we can apply this understanding when we teach science. Practising science teachers at all levels who want to explore new and better ways to frame and model science will find value in this book. Rather than advocating a rigid curriculum, Gilbert asserts that models-based science teaching embraces the creativity inherent in science and in learning.

  7. Science Fair Warm-Up: Learning the Practice of Scientists, Years 8-12

    This book, for Years 8-12, further develops the ideas about practice of scientists that were introduced in the first two books. In addition, many of the problems students will encounter are very challenging, so much so that the problems have been used with both Year 8 and tertiary-level graduates in field testing. As well as offering original investigations, the book provides problem-solving exercises to let students hone the inquiry skills to carry projects through independently. This revised Australian edition of Science Fair Warm-Up strongly correlates with two of the three strands of the Australian Curriculum: Science, featuring comprehensive practice in making predictions, conducting experiments and reporting results in every activity.
