  2. Discovery Engineering in Biology: Case Studies for Grades 6–12

    Show your students how amazing it can be to just ‘see what will happen’ when they blend biology, engineering and serendipity. Focusing on innovations sparked by accidental or unexpected observations, the case studies in this resource are a lively way to integrate engineering and experimentation into your biology classes. Middle and high school students will learn fundamental science processes while using their natural curiosity to explore ideas for new applications and products. They’ll also find out that small, plant-eating mammals called pikas helped scientists find new ways to survive extreme weather events and that algae can be used as airplane fuel.

  3. 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.

  6. Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1, Second Edition: 25 Formative Assessment Probes

    This second edition of Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1, is loaded with classroom-friendly features to pinpoint what your students know (or think they know) so you can adjust your teaching accordingly. At the book's heart are 25 'probes' - easily administered formative assessments will determine your students' thinking on 60 core science concepts in a variety of areas, including light, sound, matter, gravity, heat, temperature, life science, and Earth and space science. The probes are invaluable formative assessment tools to use before you start a topic or unit. Each probe has been field-tested across multiple year levels and can be used at any point in an instructional cycle, and will help you understand what your students are thinking and adjust your instruction accordingly.

  8. Eureka! Grade 3-5 Science Activities and Stories

    With Eureka! Grade 3-5 Science Activities and Stories, you’ve found a fresh, versatile way to put a human face on science and engineering! The title evokes Archimedes’ famous cry because the book’s lessons help your students make discoveries about who scientists and engineers are and what they do. Eureka's appeal comes from its engaging lessons, which are built around 24 children’s trade-book biographies of scientists and engineers. Some of there are well known, others are not, but all of their stories will help your students see scientists and engineers not as stereotypes wearing goggles and lab coats, but as real women and men whose work and success stem from their life experiences and characters. Eureka! is a resource you’ll turn to again and again.
