What Do Smart Science® Lessons Look Like?
Every lesson uses real-life images and videos to engage students
and to guarantee that you take real data in online experiments.
The images below illustrate the nature of the data collection part of
Smart Science® lessons.
How Smart Science® Lessons Work
Each lesson delivers a complete learning experience and NGSS support with these crucial features.
Provides inexpensive and efficient STEMIC™ education.
Scientific inquiry built in – students discover science.
Scientific thinking build in – promotes critical thinking.
Real experiments, not simulations – the new virtual experiment.
Students analyze and understand their own personal data.
Differentiated reading and mathematics levels.
Easy archiving of all student work.
Every lesson complete along with 5E support.
Engaging formative assessment begins every lesson.
Choose or write hypotheses (claims).
Perform experiments online – or in person.
See your own data as you measure it yourself.
Reflect on your experiments with a focused quiz.
Explain your results and conclusions in your own words.
Expand your understanding with extra exercises.
Evaluation carried out throughout – automatically for assessments.
Combine traditional hands-on and interactive videoed experiments.
Based on technology, uses technology, incorporates technology.
Go beyond STEM with STEMIC™
STEMIC is Science Thinking Engineering Mathematics Innovation Communication
Science is about finding out.
Engineering is about designing things.
Mathematics is about understanding the virtual world of numbers.
Thinking is crucial and has three STEMIC parts.
Rigorous thinking: comes with mathematics.
Critical thinking: comes with science.
Creative thinking: comes with engineering.
Communication is about passing along information and has three STEMIC parts.
Written communication: reading and writing.
Oral communication: listening and speaking.
Visual communication: seeing and creating visual media.
Innovation is the capstone of STEMIC.
