Formerly a SkyLight publication.

Linked to standards, this resource provides you with the ideal instructional tools for designing, implementing, and evaluating problem-based learning experiences. Author Diane Ronis offers specific, practical projects for the classroom, and explains how to make technology an integral part of the inquiry process in real-world problem solving.

According to the Ronis, "Research indicates that an integrated approach to learning aligns with the way the brain naturally processes and internalizes new information. Since mathematics and science are integrated in the world outside the classroom, and technology has become a natural extension of this integration, it seems only logical that these areas be studied together inside the classroom."
