STEM Mom: What Inquiry is NOT - 14 views

  • not all labs in a science course should be inquiry. Doing labs that help students to "see" what it is they have been learning is also very important. But lets not kid ourselves and call it inquiry, when it really isn't

How to Encourage Critical Thinking in Science and Math | Teaching Science and Math - 11 views

  •  
    Encouraging students to use critical thinking is more than an extension activity in science and math lessons, it is the basis of true learning.

    Teaching students how to think critically helps them move beyond basic comprehension and rote memorization. They shift to a new level of increased awareness when calculating, analyzing, problem solving, and evaluating.

Do Rocks Absorb Water? - 4 views

  •  
    Although it is not obvious to the casual observer, rocks absorb water. You can ask your students to observe rocks all day long and they will not be able to tell if the rocks they are observing are absorbing water. However, there is an investigation which allows students to discover that rocks absorb water and how much water specific rocks absorb.

    "Below are digital teaching resources that demonstrate how data and statistics are a vital part of learning mathematics in a meaningful context. The resource activities are often interdisciplinary, which makes them time-consuming to prepare, as additional expertise is often needed. But the payoffs can be huge: student engagement, in-depth learning, and a real-world context for learning mathematics.

    One approach is to look at situations in your community or larger world issues and have the students frame questions to investigate."
