Touchstones’ Where’d They Get that Idea features short, primary source texts from mathematicians and scientists. Through individual and small group work, class discussion, and evaluation activities, students develop discussion skills in math and science. They gain understanding of these subjects as a series of assertions, questions, and investigations, which rely on strategic decision making. As students apply their own thinking to understand the viewpoints and processes expressed by the authors, students will see themselves as both mathematical and scientific.
Students and teachers use the same volume.
