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…

Campbell, Todd; Neilson, Drew – Science Teacher, 2016

In this article Campbell and Neilson discuss several design strategies developed or adopted that were found particularly helpful when sequencing a unit that focused on learning about motion and acceleration. Students were expected to predict, observe, and explain why a ball traveled down one ramp faster than the other. Before engaging students,…

Campbell, Todd; Neilson, Drew; Oh, Phil Seok – Science Teacher, 2013

Of the eight practices of science identified in "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" (NRC 2012), helping students develop and use models has been identified by many as an anchor (Schwarz and Passmore 2012; Windschitl 2012). In instruction, disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and scientific practices can be meaningfully…
