Overview

Developing a positive attitude towards science and mathematics is essential to developing proficiency in these subjects. Recognizing this, Bringing Science and Mathematics to Life for All Learners provides interesting teaching methods and connects them to recent pedagogical approaches that span the scientific and mathematical curricula. It builds upon the expanding knowledge of what works in classrooms, and suggests how new approaches to teaching and learning can transform science and mathematics 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. Active group engagement and continuity in scientific and mathematical experiences are stressed as motivating factors for students. Presented in a creative manner, the ultimate goal of this book is to deepen the collective conversation, challenge existing ways of thinking, and provide up-to-date tools for educators so that they can help improve the science and mathematics skill levels of others.
