  1. Creating Engineering Design Challenges: Success Stories From Teachers

    If you’ve ever wished for advice you can trust on how to make science and math more relevant to your middle or high school students, Creating engineering design challenges is the book for you. At its core are thirteen units grounded in challenge-based learning and the engineering design process. You can be sure the units are classroom-ready because they were contributed by teachers who developed, used and revised them during the Cincinnati engineering enhanced math and science (CEEMS) program, a project funded by the National Science Foundation. The contributors’ goal is to help you benefit from their hard-won experience. Working from their advice, you can develop a more student-centred classroom culture and nurture learners who are engaged in real-life engineering challenges.

  4. Zeroing in on Number and Operations, Pre-K–K: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions

    When you talk with students about their number sense and computational skills, you're bound to uncover some surprising gaps in their understanding. Knowing how to identify and bridge those gaps is essential for helping students at all levels advance as mathematical thinking. Sharing the insights they've gained through decades of mathematics teaching and research, Linda Dacey and Anne Collins help you focus on what students really need to know and understand at each year level. The modules for grades preschool and Foundation Year are organised into three sections: "Numbers", "Relationships" and "Addition and Subtraction". Each module begins with the identification of its mathematical focus and the potential challenges and misconceptions associated with those ideas.

  10. It’s All Relative: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions About Ratio and Proportion, Grades 6-7

    For years, students have been taught to cross multiply when presented with proportion problems. Few understand what they were doing or why they were doing it. Rarely were students invited to think about various representations to determine the relationship between the two ratios being compared. This guide will help you provide students with the conceptual understanding of ratios and proportional thinking that is essential for solving real-world problems and achieving success in higher-level mathematics. The authors particularly emphasise how to use visual models to represent ratios and proportional thinking. These visual models, which may be new to many teachers, enhance students' conceptual understanding and improve ability to solve a wide range of proportional reasoning problems.

  11. Year Round Project-Based Activities for STEM Series

    Wondering how to incorporate science, technology, engineering and mathematics PLUS collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving and digital literacy into the Preschool–Year 3 curriculum? You can do it with project-based learning units and scaffolded activities through which young students design, create and use learning/play centres. The books in the Year-Round Project-Based Activities for STEM series each present fun, hands-on units that incorporate a combination of science, technologies and engineering, and mathematics principles, each broken down into five phases with specific guidelines, options for adjustments and suggestions for parent support. This “learning-by-doing” approach is fun, and it allows learning to come naturally as children who are bubbling with different abilities, backgrounds and ideas work together – all while meeting important Australian Curriculum requirements!
