Classroom Compass, v2 n1-4 1995-96
This document is comprised of the four 1995-1996 issues of "Classroom Compass," a newsletter of the Eisenhower Southwest Consortium for the Improvement of Mathematics and Science Teaching. Each issue contains a "Resources and Opportunities" section, a reading list, excerpts from the National Science Education Standards, and learning activities. The reading lists included in these issues pertain to equity in science and mathematics education and classroom assessment. Miscellaneous background articles address design in the classroom and science and mathematics for all. The learning activities provided enable students to study the functions of the heart, pendulum motion, a design exploration that uses the story of the three little pigs, and a design exploration about power boat design. Excerpts from the National Science Education Standards provide information on science and technology across grade levels, assessment in mathematics classrooms, the world beyond the classroom, and environments for learning about science.
