9781607096351: Demystify Math, Science, and Technology: Creativity, Innovation, and Problem-Solving

Technology is viewed as a powerful force both in and out of school and has long been linked with math and science. Although concepts and activities of this book apply to any grade, the primary focus is on the elementary and middle school levels. This book provides principles and practical strategies for promoting creative and innovative work in math, science, and technology. The authors pay close attention to the social nature of learning and how collaboration can spark student interest in open-ended problem-solving. Shining a light on mathematic, scientific, and technological processes gives everyone more control over what is going on around them and increases understanding of how things work.

Review:

This book has many imaginative and easy-to-implement suggestions for educators who want to promote creativity, innovation, and problem-solving in the classroom. Concerns, processes, and activities are presented in a way that informs teachers and gives them the tools to generate student enthusiasm in math, science, and technology. The authors have done a masterful job of connecting fresh ideas, practical applications, and twenty-first century skills. (Rebecca Angeles, professor, Information & Decision Sciences, University of New Brunswick)

This book is uniquely engaging and thought-provoking. The authors offer a fresh perspective on the importance of creativity, innovation, and problem-solving to the future of young learners. This book supplements curriculum guidelines that bring about fascination and fun to learning in our schools. (Rose Castro, teacher, San Francisco)

I found especially appealing the core idea of engaging students in modes of inquiry that characterize the work of scientists and mathematicians....the authors have made a substantial contribution in admonishing teachers and students to take greater responsibility for achievement in math and science and provide a wealth of suggestions concerning how they may do so. (Educational Technology, July-August 2010)

This teacher-friendly book suggests ideas, concepts, and strategies that will help demystify math, science, and technology. The authors present a variety of new approaches, techniques, and ideas that teachers can use to increase the educational success of their students. It opens many doors to creativity and active collaborative learning. The book is timely, innovative, and practical. (Sharonn Wilson, teacher, Pacifica, California)
