Five iconic science images, and why they're wrong : SciencePunk Over the years, we’ve been blessed with innumerable breathtaking images from the pursuit of science – from the unimaginably huge Pillars of Creation to the endlessly tiny Mandelbrot Fractals. But some of these images have taken on an iconic status, instantly recognisable to schoolchildren and Republican presidential candidates alike. The problem is, a lot of these iconic science images are more icon than science. LiveGraphics3D Example: Two Color Volumes Here is how to create these graphics within Mathematica: g=Show[Graphics3D[{ EdgeForm[],Table[{ FaceForm[RGBColor[x,y,z],CMYKColor[x,y,z,0]], Polygon[{{x,y,z},{x+0.2,y,z},{x+0.2,y+0.2,z}, {x,y+0.2,z}}] },{x,1,0,-1/3},{y,1,0.,-1/3},{z,1,0.,-1/3}] },Lighting->False,Background->GrayLevel[0]]] This will show the topmost picture within Mathematica. The following command is used to produce an appropriate InputForm of g:

A Science Mastery Curriculum by @Mr_Gillett We are all aware that the upcoming changes to the science GCSE curriculum, and the move towards ‘life without levels’ is a big challenge for teachers. However, it is also a massive opportunity to improve how we deliver the curriculum. We are taking the chance to develop a new scheme of work for science to take students from year 7 to success in their GCSE exams by developing a science curriculum based on the concept of mastery.

The Socratic Method The Socratic Method:Teaching by Asking Instead of by Tellingby Rick Garlikov The following is a transcript of a teaching experiment, using the Socratic method, with a regular third grade class in a suburban elementary school. I present my perspective and views on the session, and on the Socratic method as a teaching tool, following the transcript. The class was conducted on a Friday afternoon beginning at 1:30, late in May, with about two weeks left in the school year.
