Location : HUMSS, 125

Speakers

  1. Karen Hornby - National STEM Centre

The challenge is to get to grips with a range of toys and gizmos for inspirational science teaching in just one hour! There are so many engaging examples that pupils have access to but which are also great for teaching science concepts. This session takes a look at a variety of gizmos and gadgets and tries to unpick the science that sit behind them. The challenge is further extended to integrate these ideas into your teaching and learning.

CANCELLED - Teaching about Energy and Climate Change - T67

Friday 9th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : AMS, 133

Speakers

  1. Keith Ross - ATSE

Physicists (and the national curriculum) now talk about energy stores and transfers, with electricity, light and sound becoming simply ways of transferring energy from one store to another. Can this approach also be used in teaching chemistry and biology? This talk takes a look at the way the word energy is used in everyday language and links it with the idea of energy dissipation and conservation. Examples will be taken from topics related to the understanding of climate change.

Friday 9th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : Palmer, 107

Speakers

  1. Marianne Cutler - ASE
  2. Richard Needham

ASE teacher members have raised concerns on many occasions over recent years that mathematical aspects of science are often not well understood by their students. Teachers are also concerned that they may be using different terminology or approaches when explaining ideas compared to those used by mathematics teachers, which can lead to confusion. At this particular time when new science curriculum statements give more prominence to mathematical skills, ASE is clear that science teachers will need support in effectively preparing to meet the challenges of these changes. This project, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, is developing guidance materials for KS3/4 teachers. This workshop invites teachers to identify and discuss issues for their students in effectively using mathematics in science.
