Assessment in Math and Science - Will This Be on the Test?
Workshop 1. Will This Be on the Test?'; Knowing vs. Understanding
'Understanding is more than simply knowing. This workshop sets the stage for the entire series by examining what it means to understand, and explores how teachers can design a set of performance tasks to fairly and accurately assess the levels of understanding that their students have or have not achieved. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.'
Against All Odds - 4. Normal Distributions
'Students will advance from histograms through smooth curves to normal curves, and finally to a single normal curve for standardized measurement, as this program shows ways to describe the shape of a distribution using progressively simpler methods. In a lesson on creating a density curve, students also learn why, under steadily decreasing deviation, today’s baseball players are less likely to achieve a .400 batting average.'
Teaching The Difference Between Standard/Non-Standard Measurement with Feet by the Foot™
Feet by the Foot™ from Learning Resources help students transition from non-standard to standard measurement. Teacher demonstrates how to measure a table using the feet by foot method.
Workshop 1: Making an Impact
What would happen if an asteroid were to hit the surface of the earth? How large a crater would the impact create? In this workshop, the ideas of force and motion are introduced, as seventh-grade students drop balls to simulate asteroid impacts. By varying a ball’s mass, the height from which it is dropped, or the material being struck, the students explore what factor
Technology in Early Childhood Education
“ As with any learning tool, technology should be used alongside a variety of learning experiences.”
Adults consistently model for children the use of technology in everyday life.
Technology needs to be introduced to children before they can be expected to use it independently.
Instructional strategies coupled with technology can creative powerful learning experiences.
The use of technology helps children practice skills and better unde

Starting university can be a daunting experience. StartingUni.info podcasts are recordings of students talking about their experiences of starting university. There’s a range of topics which new students will find useful, and although the recordings are mostly of students studying biological sciences at the University of Leicester most of what they say will apply to any course at any university.
