about

This book is for practicing science and math educators and researchers, including graduate students, science and math teachers, and other teachers interested in developing a sound theoretical and empirical basis for curriculum development and instruction grounded in what is known about how the brain works and develops. The Neurological Basis of Learning, Development and Discovery is unique in that it *links neural physiology and neural network theory with cognition and instructional practice; *grounds the current emphasis on inquiry and constructivism in epistemological, philosophical and developmental theory; *links neural network theory, learning theory, conceptual change theory, and scientific discovery to classroom practice; *provides examples of scientifically-based research in education as a guide for science and math educators and graduate students; *has examples of lessons that can teach discipline-specific concepts as well as provoke the development of general reasoning/argumentative skills; *can be used in graduate-level courses in science education and in-service courses for science teachers.
