Technology is viewed as a powerful force both in and out of school and has long been linked with math and science. Although concepts and activities of this book apply to any grade, the primary focus is on the elementary and middle school levels. This book provides principles and practical strategies for promoting creative and innovative work in math, science, and technology. The authors pay close attention to the social nature of learning and how collaboration can spark student interest in open-ended problem-solving. Shining a light on mathematic, scientific, and technological processes gives everyone more control over what is going on around them and increases understanding of how things work.
