Elementary Mathematics and Science Methods Inquiry Teaching and Learning, 1st Edition

  • ISBN10: 0-534-51579-7

    ISBN13: 978-0-534-51579-9

  • AUTHORS: Gerald William Foster - ©1999

Using constructivist theory and inquiry learning methods, Foster presents a text that both meets national standards and satisfies the needs of this emerging market. This book will appeal to those who have embraced the NCTCM standards and the reform philosophy of using collaborative learning, real-world applications, and the discovery method for teaching math and science concepts. Students learn how to teach children about math through science, and science through math. Parallels are drawn between the two subjects to make them applicable to everyday life. Foster shows the student how to encourage learning in their students (teaching how to learn) rather than merely teaching their students what to learn (i.e., memorization). The text uses practical activities for students to use in their future classroom to facilitate learning and create inquisitive learners.
