de Winter, James – Physics Teacher, 2019
It is common for high school physics teachers to comment on the challenges they face in supporting students' graph drawing skills, knowing their importance for the study of physics. This paper suggests a novel and alternative way to support students to develop their graph drawing skills as well as teach them about sound, frequency, and amplitude.…

Tedd, Joe; Tedd, Bernie – School Science Review, 2018
The UK School Seismology Project started in 2007. King Edward VI High School for Girls was one of the fortunate schools to obtain a school seismometer system, free of charge, as an early adopter of the resource. This report outlines our experiences with the system over the past 10 years and describes our recent research on the relationship between…

Caraballo, Tami; Crowther, Gregory – Science Teacher, 2018
The Idea Bank column provides tips and techniques for creative teaching, in about 1,000 words. As students use increasingly diverse internet sources, it becomes hard to tell whether their answers are truly original. A general solution to this dilemma is to ask students to present information in a format that they are unlikely to encounter in books…

Goodale, Timothy A.; Hughes, Claire E. – School Science Review, 2018
For over 50 years, science educators have been calling for increased opportunities for students to engage with science in creative manners, but teachers are still reliant on packaged materials that promote single and 'correct' responses with cookbook approaches. This article suggests five strategies that teachers can use to enhance constructed…

Bernard, Rachel; Henegan, Colleen – Science Teacher, 2018
For many students, the first--and sometimes only--chance to look through a microscope is in high school biology class, where they observe plant and animal cells up close. Even in college, few students use a microscope for a subject other than biology. Thus, it can be a surprise to learn that microscopes are a primary tool used to understand the…

Miller, Kurtz – Science Teacher, 2018
This article describes a grantmanship framework for high school science educators. The scenario described illustrates the importance of grant writing in an era of increased school accountability and tightened purse strings. The framework presented can be used for most STEM-related projects and can guide educators toward high-quality instruction…

White, Dorothy Y.; Gomez, Carlos Nicolas; Rushing, Fred; Hussain, Nicholas; Patel, Kristina; Pratt, Jason – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Take a moment to think about the students class. What are their mathematical strengths? How can a teacher know a mathematical strength when they see it? Can teachers identify at least one mathematical strength for every student? More important, how are teachers using students' strengths in their mathematics classrooms? Teaching is a complex…

Teuscher, Dawn; Palsky, Kylie; Palfreyman, Charlie Y. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
The goal of this article is to raise questions that will promote discussions among secondary mathematics teachers about the concept of inverse functions and how to motivate a more conceptual understanding of them in their classrooms. The authors share data to answer the following questions: (1) What meanings of inverse functions do high school…

Lischka, Alyson E.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E.; Stephens, D. Christopher; Strayer, Jeremy F.; Barlow, Angela T. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Mistakes can be a source of frustration for teachers and students in mathematics classrooms because they reveal potential misunderstandings or a lack of learning. However, increasing evidence shows that making mistakes creates productive pathways for learning new ideas and building new concepts (Boaler 2016; Borasi 1996). Learning through…

Clinch, Adam – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
One of the foundational topics in first-year algebra concerns the concept of factoring. This article discusses an alternative strategy for factoring quadratics of the form ax[superscript 2] + bx + c, known as "factoring for roots." This strategy enables students to extend the knowledge they used when the leading coefficient was 1 and…

Cloft, Kristal – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Many ways exist to engage students without detracting from the mathematics. Certainly some are high-tech options, such as video games, online trivia sites, and PowerPoint® presentations that follow the same model as Jeopardy; but sometimes low-tech options can be just as powerful. One exciting way to connect with students is by incorporating…
