CASES Online is a collection of inquiry-based lessons to engage K-12 and undergraduate students in exploring the science behind real-world problems. Through CASES, you can transform your students into motivated investigators, self-directed and life-long learners, critical thinkers and keen problem solvers. Our cases are grounded in Problem-Based Learning (PBL), Investigative Case-Based Learning (ICBL), and related student-centered pedagogies. [more]
Data Nuggets are activities designed to give students practice interpreting quantitative information and making claims based on evidence. Each activity provides a brief background to a researcher and their study system, along with a real dataset from that study. Students are challenged to answer a scientific question using data to support their claim, and are guided through the construction of graphs to facilitate data interpretation. Because of their simplicity and flexibility, Data Nuggets can be used throughout the school year as students build confidence in their quantitative skills.
At BioInteractive, you can find multimedia resources, including apps, animations, videos, interactives, and virtual labs, to bring the excitement of scientific discovery into your classroom. Our rich video resources range from a series of short films on evolution, hosted by an award-winning author-scientist, to lectures on the brain given by a Nobel-prize winner—all supplemented by teacher guides and classroom activities.
ChemMatters is a magazine that helps high school students find connections between chemistry and the world around them. Published since 1983 by the American Chemical Society’s Education Division, ChemMatters engages students with real-world applications of scientific concepts.
Science in the Middle School should be taught using an inquiry, project-based approach, with students engaged in daily hands-on, minds-on investigations. This is then enhanced as they move investigations into their communities and participate in solutions to science and technology issues. This allows science teachers to integrate units with all of the other subject area teachers on their teams.
