I kept having to return to my initial question to avoid missing the point. At times I felt that I was not getting anywhere. I now understand that this is all part of doing research and, over time, I discovered some interesting themes. Writing up the dissertation was also a challenge. I had to disregard a lot of information that was not entirely relevant to my research question.
The scientific method is not new to most of the students in these classes. It is the rigorous application of it that we often have oft forgotten and as such we can miss the true “power” of the systemic approach. In our rush to have the right answer sometimes, we forget the value of going through the question and taking it apart to ensure we’ve got the best answer …not just the most expedient one. Research helps us to “trust but verify”. It requires that we test and verify that which we already believe, but just as importantly it helps us understand the other side of an issue and literally give us a better appreciation of the true complexity of an issue.
First off is to test the student’s knowledge on using measurement tools accurately when measuring the mass and volume of the metals in this specific lab. It is important to precisely measure these values, because it will result in a more accurate density if the mass and volume were to be measured accurately. Lastly, the student will be able to use the density they obtained and compare it to the theoretical value to conclude if they were able to use the measurement tools correctly and find the mass and volume, which resulted in the density. By comparing the answer the student obtained to the theoretical value the student can figure out what errors they made and what to improve on in their future labs. Density is a very important factor in industrial use such as building ships whether navel or cruise ships.
BIOL 1103L Carb Blocker Article Draft Writing-to-learn assignments are often called “low stakes” writing assignments because they allow you to explore topics of interest while not being graded for a large number of points; examples of these assignments that you are VERY familiar with by now are in-class experimental designs. The more you practice communicating science via these low-stakes assignments, the better prepared you will be to write about the process of science at a more intensive level (“mid stakes” and “high stakes” assignments that are worth more points and demonstrate your knowledge learned). This assignment is the draft version of your Carb Blocker Article. This is a mid-stakes assignment that requires you to demonstrate
Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection As I reflect on the activities we completed, I am very excited to give you some details about them and some insight to what I’ve learned about myself. These assignments were interesting and at first I couldn’t fathom why they were asking the types of questions they were, but as I completed each and got my results I could then understand why the program was asking us such repetitive questions with a limited choice of answers. My personal ethical lens is the relationship and reputation lens. I found that my strengths are my reasoning skills and my intuition while my weaknesses are isolation, guilt and confusion. I was surprised that my blind spot was identified to be overconfidence in process because I rarely feel confident in anything.
It can be tricky to write a lesson plan that supports differentiated learning. It is very important that lessons are differentiated to allow for all students to understand and enjoy learning about new concepts. Science is a great area of the curriculum to explore the idea of differentiated instruction strategies. Below, you will find an example of a multi-lesson plan for science. An Example In this lesson plan I will use a number of differentiating strategies such as Blooms taxonomy, Multiple Intelligences and the 5 E’s, which is a scientific method to explore scientific concepts.
Personally, I did not how to approach this question immediately, so I attempted it again after some time and I ended up solving the question by using simultaneous equations. I called ‘x’ the amount of money added to the initial values and ‘y’ and ‘5y’, the final amount of money which each individual had. As this question did not specify to use simultaneous equations, I believe that this had the required the order of thinking of analysing and evaluating as I had to carefully consider what to do for some time and decide on how this problem could be solved. I also believe that there was an element of creating as I had to create my own algebraic terminology for the amounts each person had. In the CIE paper, there was a single part of a question for one mark, which in my opinion required analysing and evaluation of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
My Learning Style Essay The reason for doing this essay is to try and discover which is my best and worst way to learn and then to come up with a strategy for improving my ability to learn. The first thing that I need to do is research what different learning styles there is, after I have done this I can determine what are my preferred learning styles. I have always thought I learned better when I took a hands-on approach. This type of learning is called Physical (kinesthetic). After taking a short questionnaire, I also found that I prefer to learn with visual aids, such as pictures and graphs.
For example, teachers should shine light on how studying algebra actually develops stronger problem solving skills and leads students into a deeper level of thinking. If students were to see that even if they do not solve specific algebraic equations in their lives outside of algebra class, the skills that are gained by thinking on a higher level will allow them to be successful on many different levels. In today’s technology driven society relating the content to the students grows increasingly more difficult. Students in the modern classroom communicate and “operate within what they came to call “mulitiliteracies””, meaning students speak in a way that is used in computer and text message language (Ryan 192). Even in the young grades, teachers need to relate the content in which they are teaching in every way possible.
J. A. Resurreccion and J. Adanza recommended that since science teachers were still adapting to the new curriculum, they needed more time and trainings to master all the fields and to learn new teaching strategies because it is difficult to teach something, in which one does not have the necessary mastery. They can teach other branches of science without the in-depth discussion because it is not their specialization. In the study of A. Argote (2016), results show that in describing and understanding the lived experiences of Science teachers regarding Spiral Progression Approach, as well as determining the views and insights of Science Teachers in relation to the implementation of Spiral Progression Approach in teaching their subject, Science teachers still have misconceptions or misinterpretations about the Spiral Progression Approach. The outcomes also confirm that despite revisions in Science Curriculum due to the implementation of Spiral Progression Approach, teachers still reveal constructive experiences.
