NEXUS INTERDISCIPLINARY SCIENCE - GALILEO, LEONARDO DA VINCI, ARCHIMEDES & OTHERSSCIENCE
The SCIENCE chapters/articles :
In these articles students walk in the footsteps of geniuses like Da Vinci, Galileo, Archimedes. They learn to think like these mental giants and to emulate their discovery processes: observation, analogical thinking, and inductive and deductive reasoning. We take students step by step through great discoveries, leaving some steps out for students to explore and explain. Then we ask students to duplicate the scientist s discovery process in a variety of classroom-tested activities that will spur their imaginations and exercise their powers of reasoning and observation.
BECAUSE OF ITS LIVELY WRITING STYLE, COLORFUL ANECDOTES AND LINKS TO EVERYDAY LIFE, NEXUS CAPTIVATES AND STIMULATES THE RELUCTANT LEARNER AS WELL AS THE AVID LEARNER.
