This book addresses why inquiry-based learning is effective pedagogy in. .Author Diane Ronis provides many sample projects in her book.

Author Diane Ronis provides many sample projects in her book. Each example begins with an overview of the mathematics, science and technology standards (from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, The National Science Education Standards and the National Education Technology Standards project, respectively) that the project seeks to fulfill.

Excellent all the way around. I would buy from them again. Very satisfied overall.
...with little or no content that you either already know or else could find very easily on the internet by doing a simple search for "problem-based learning"...
Diane Ronis in this absorbing book writes: "In a constantly changing world with ever increasing challenges, it is the responsibility of teachers to prepare today's students to live and work in a world where they will encounter complex problems on a daily basis. Education must change in basic and crucial ways to equip young people successfully survive and thrive in such an environment. Thus teachers must fundamentally revise their approach to learning and instruction." This is a provocative and potent statement, essentially saying K-12 education, as we know it, cannot equip young people to function successfully in the world they will inherit.
A new instructional paradigm has emerged, one very much affected by recent cognitive and neuroscientific research. One in which skills such as problem solving and critical thinking as well as the ability to rapidly acquire, process, and apply new information, have become vital to success. Yet, as we all know too well, school reform in America today is primarily a matter of ratcheting up standards and then testing children to make certain they are measuring up. There is little time left to devote to the development of intellectual curiosity or any sense of 'meaningful' learning. The current 'teaching-to-the-test' hysteria deprives students of real mental challenge.
Diane Ronis' principal contribution to this increasing instruction conflict is to make the implications from a growing body of research on learning readily available to teachers or parents. This is not an overly theoretical, dense, or hard-to-follow book. On the contrary, it simply examines the rationale behind inquiry and problem-based learning and explains why it is such an effective method for math and science instruction in today's 'e' world.
After reading this book, many a reader, who struggled with his or her own math and/or science education may conclude it was not his or her own personal limitation that was the problem, but rather the ineptitude of the teaching approach. Those who loved their math education may still be aware that their curriculum was a "mile wide and an inch deep." The somewhat perfunctory mental gymnastics they learned, were good at, and liked did not really expose the deeper essence of any major mathematical or scientific theory.
The book, however, does contain some qualifying factors. To recast the entire mathematics and science curricula for problem based learning is much harder than just supplying a few sample tasks. Still this is a powerful beginning. I highly recommend "PBL for Math and Science..." for anyone, especially teachers, who want to make their instruction meaningful and relevant, or parents whose children aren't meeting success with their current mathematics or science education.
This is a very user friendly book with ideas that can be incorporated into the classroom with ease. It covers general topics so it can be used anywhere. I used it for freshmen in algebra and physical science.
