This deceptively simple strategy transforms the way learners engage in their lessons  and promotes more effective teaching, learning and assessment in mathematics and science.  They are most suitable for pupils ages 8-14, but can be used outside this age range.
Background text, written in pupil-friendly language, is available for each Concept Cartoon. This suggests possible follow up activities and explains the math or science behind the different alternatives and possible answers. The book contains black and white photocopiable pages. The interactivity of the CD enables the speech bubbles to be changed and modified. A blank speech bubble encourages learners to add additional ideas. The level of demand of many of the Concept Cartoons can be adjusted by changing the central information and the text in the speech bubbles.

Ideal for STEM instruction. This is an integrated/ interrelated product that bridges Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

 The CD is available two license forms:  Single User License and Site License.

Concept Cartoons have been thoroughly researched in classrooms around the world. Simple cartoon-style drawings present learners with their own misconceptions and generate discussion and argument. They are remarkably easy to use in the classroom as a part of normal teaching.
