Develop greater clarity and coherence when working with mathematical ideas, language and procedures in science and mathematics lessons, to help learners transfer their mathematical skills and understanding effectively to their science learning.

BERG: An approach to learning A level biology - T15

Thursday 5th January 2017

11:00 - 12:00

Speakers

  1. Nick Poore

This presenation will provide an overview of a project to produce resources designed to help pupils develop their understanding of A level Biology through a programme of directed independent learning and investigative practical work.The presentation will include a review of the approaches taken in the programme and outcomes.

Models & misconceptions - W11

Thursday 5th January 2017

11:00 - 12:00

Speakers

  1. Sarah Longshaw - Eaton Bank Academy

The session will look at how to identify and address some common misconceptions in chemistry. Having identified the misconceptions we will then use models to help students overcome them. The session will involve some hands on activities and will provide you with ideas to incorporate into your own classroom practice.

Earth Science: Amazing planet - action-packed classroom science - W13

Thursday 5th January 2017

11:30 - 12:30

Speakers

  1. Chris King - Earthlearningidea

When we asked ourselves, 'How can we bring our wide range of Earthlearningidea activities in a dynamic interactive way to the largest possible audience at the ASE conference?' � the lecture-theatre presentation of 'Amazing planet � action-packed science' idea was born � with you as an interactive audience. Will this be successful? How many lecture-sized practical ideas for teaching about the Earth can we squeeze into 60 minutes? How will you be involved? Come and find out for yourselves.

The latest developments in microchemistry REPEATED - T16

Thursday 5th January 2017

11:30 - 12:30

Speakers

  1. Bob Worley - CLEAPSS

Microscale chemistry: Low cost and quickly performed procedures to enhance students' chemistry experience in all parts of chemical education and add variety to your lessons.In the past I have shown visitors to ASE, Microscale chemistry techniques gathered from all around the world. These techniques are usually associated with providing hands-on experience for students starting chemistry education or learning the subject in schools with no laboratory facilities. Teachers often think it has no place in more advanced courses.In this talk with demonstrations, we can apply these simple techniques to challenge students' misunderstandings in how invisible particles interact with water molecules and each other. Chemistry is not magic! It is now easy to show on the bench that molten salts do conduct an electric current. A number of teachers both here and in the States have incorporated the procedures into a seamless lesson of theory, practical and inquiry.I will show you more advanced chemistry uses by preparing and investigating the reactions of �exotic� gaseous alkenes (e.g. propene). This procedure (a useful alternative to smelly cyclohexene) uses a novel technique with 3-way taps and syringes to collect gases initially collected over water. Also I will hydrogenate propene to propane. The phenomenon of paramagnetism in transition metal can be very rapidly shown in precipitates and complexes formed in droplets. Thin layer chromatography is really quick and easy at the micro level. Micro-titrations need not be acid/base, they can cover redox and complexometric reactions as well.By using webcams, USB microscopes or even your mobile phone, teachers and students can make videos for �flipping� or revision. The procedures are often so quick that they can be incorporated into lectures and lessons (even those not in a lab) and stunningly projected onto a large screen.�In a little you can see a lot�

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Speakers

  1. David Shelton - Spacelink Learning Foundation
  2. Robert Coombes - Spacelink Learning Foundation

Spacelink is working on ways to increase students taking up STEM subjects. We do this through the theme of Space. We will be discussing some of the projects that we are running to try and inspire students to get involved in STEM. These projects include our Google hangouts project and our Norman White Award.

CANCELLED: Lesson study in science - T17

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Speakers

  1. Julie Jordan

Lesson Study - empowering evidence in science education. Lesson study is a form of professional development in which teams of teachers systematically and collaboratively conduct classroom based research. This interactive and thought provoking session will outline the principles of authentic Japanese Lesson Study and present case studies of science teachers' experiences of the process.
