Remijan, Kelly W. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
Just as steam was found to be a source of power during the Industrial Revolution, increasing factory production and improving transportation, today STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) can be found to be a framework that empowers teachers, increases student engagement, and improves student understanding. Although a…

Tate, Kathleen; Doyle, Colin; Messina, Daniela; Warnecke, Brian; DePriter, Tiffany; Brillhart, Daniel – Science and Children, 2018
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) (2014) sets forth that children learning science and engineering practices in the early years lays "the foundation for a progression of science learning in K-12 settings and throughout their entire lives." So, it is important to build upon children's natural curiosities and expose them to…

Dark, Marta L.; Hylton, Derrick J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
This article describes a general education course offering, Physics and the Arts. During the development of this course, physics and arts faculty collaborated closely. We cover the usual physics phenomena for such a course--light, color, and sound--in addition to gravity, equilibrium, and spacetime. Goals of the course are to increase students'…

Jones, Verity – Primary Science, 2018
In many schools following the National Curriculum for England the teaching of science has been overshadowed by the demands of literacy and numeracy, with the focus on statutory testing (SATs) and emphasis on national targets. This has often led to increasing concerns around teachers' subject knowledge, the sapping of teacher confidence and…

Roy, George J.; Eli, Jennifer A.; Hendrix, Leslie; Graul, LuAnn – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Students who are adept in modeling with mathematics have the capability to use mathematics in situations that arise in everyday life. The German Tank problem described in this article created the expectation that student reasoning was rooted in logical deductions (NCTM 2000). By engaging in this problem, students grappled with challenging…

Pringle, Tom – Primary Science, 2018
At first glance, science and art seem as likely companions as oil and water. Is there more to mixing them up than mere metaphor and a messy floor? In this article, Tom Pringle shares some ideas for powering up the classroom by turning STEM into STEAM by dipping the paintbrush of art into the pot of science. In both art and science pupils can…

Neilson, Drew; Campbell, Todd – Science Teacher, 2018
Science students should use mathematical and computational thinking to explain phenomena, but few examples of teachers engaging students in this important scientific practice have been found. This article describes a strategy for enhancing a lesson in which students use a mechanistic model to explain friction by adding mathematical and…

Karakoc, Aynur Ismayilli – English Teaching Forum, 2018
The technique provided in this article offers an integrated-skills activity. Students should be able to read the description of a visual image, describe their own visuals, read and collect information from other students' writing, and speak about what they have found. This activity can be adapted for nearly any language level. The activity can…

Bober, Brittany A.; Ogata, Jennifer K.; Martinez, Veronica E.; Hallinan, Janae J.; Leach, Taylor A.; Negru, Bogdan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Surface structures on the nanometer size scale can impart new and exciting properties to bulk materials. Nanoscopic structures on hydrophobic materials can result in superhydrophobicity and structural coloration. We present an interdisciplinary experiment that introduces undergraduate students to nanotechnology by manipulating the…

Westfall, Seth Marie – Science and Children, 2018
The lack of time available to adequately teach everything expected throughout the days and weeks in a school year is a major concern for many elementary teachers. The heavy focus on reading, writing, and mathematics leaves little time for science and social studies instruction. However, science is an integral part of preparation for college and…
