Developing positive attitudes towards science and math goes hand-in-hand with developing competency. Recognizing this, Bringing Science and Mathematics to Life for All Learners provides interesting methods and connects them to recent pedagogical approaches that reach across the curriculum for both science and math. It builds on the expanding knowledge of what works in classrooms and suggests how new approaches to teaching and learning can transform science and math instructions.

The book is designed to help students in learning science and mathematics. It has many research-based and standards-driven activities, lesson plans and active learning techniques to reach diverse student groups. The authors stress active group engagement and continuity in scientific and mathematical experiences that are very motivating for students. The book is presented in a creative manner to introduce both educators and students to science and math.

For educators, ideas and activities for standards-based learning, collaborative inquiry and active problem solving are included. The goal is to deepen the collective conversation, challenge thinking and provide up-to-date tools for educators so that they can help expand the level of science and math skills.
