Science Detectives

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2661517&cjsku=2661517...
Like detectives, scientists find clues by making observations, recording their findings, and testing their hypotheses to solve a case. This dynamic science e-book will help first-grade students learn all about the history of scientists and the process and tools scientists use to make discoveries! With a hands-on "Let's Do Science" lab activity that is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, this is a perfect tool to develop students' scientific practices and support STEM Education. Including a glossary and index, the helpful text features in this easy-to-read informational text support the development of content-area literacy while vibrant images keep readers engaged from cover to cover.

Future Science

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=801076&cjsku=801076...
The next wave of science writing is here. Editor Max Brockman has talent-spotted 19 young scientists, working on leading-edge research across a wide range of fields. Nearly half of them are women, and all of them are great communicators: their passion and excitement makes this collection a wonderfully invigorating read. We hear from an astrobiologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena about the possibilities for life elsewhere in the solar system (and the universe); from the director of Yale's Comparative Cognition Laboratory about why we keep making the same mistakes; from a Cambridge lab about DNA synthesis; from the Tanzanian savannah about what lies behind attractiveness; we hear about how to breed plants to withstand disease, about ways to extract significance from the Interne's enormousdatasets, about oceanography, neuroscience, microbiology, and evolutionary psychology.

Occupational Science

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=822508&cjsku=822508...
Occupational Science: Society, Inclusion, Participation is the must have resource for occupational therapists, occupational scientists, students and researchers. The book begins with a comprehensive review of the current literature and the knowledge generated to date. Reasons for the field's limited impact are proposed, including its focus on individuals rather than groups and communities, its psychological view of occupation, and its narrow focus on socially approved occupations. Global realities such as poverty, anti-social behaviour and ageing populations are discussed and implications for action are considered. The second section of the books comprises a series of chapters that address the philosophical, theoretical and scientific bases that underpin and inform everyday decision making in occupational therapy practice. This is followed by a section on methodological and structural considerations. The concluding chapter offers a critical reflection on methods, strategies, values and relationships for the future, to achieve a relevant science that makes a difference to current occupational realities. Written by an internationally renowned team of contributors, this book offers a truly comprehensive critique of the field. Features • Internationally renowned Editors and contributors • First comprehensive text on occupational science • Fully up to date with the latest thinking and research • Links theory to practice

Science Studies

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=866222&cjsku=866222...
Thrust into the public eye by the contentious "Science Wars"--played out most recently by physicist Alan Sokal's hoax--the nascent field of science studies takes on the political, historical, and cultural dimensions of technology and the sciences. Science Studies is the first comprehensive survey of the field, combining a concise overview of key concepts with an original and integrated framework. In the process of bringing disparate fields together under one tent, David J. Hess realizes the full promise of science studies, long uncomfortably squeezed into traditional disciplines. He provides a clear discussion of the issues and misunderstandings that have arisen in these interdisciplinary conversations. His survey is up-to-date and includes recent developments in philosophy, sociology, anthropology, history, cultural studies, and feminist studies. By moving from the discipline-bound blinders of a sociology, history, philosophy, or anthropology of science to a transdisciplinary field, science studies, Hess argues, will be able to provide crucial conceptual tools for public discussions about the role of science and technology in a democratic society.

Science Stories

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=943366&cjsku=943366...
Stories give life and substance to scientific methods and provide an inside look at scientists in action. Case studies deepen scientific understanding, sharpen critical-thinking skills, and help students see how science relates to their lives. In Science Stories, Clyde Freeman Herreid, Nancy Schiller, and Ky Herreid have organized case studies into categories such as historical cases, science and the media, and ethics and the scientific process.
