The Big Ideas of Nanoscale Science and Engineering: A Guide for Secondary Teachers

Grades 7-12
By Shawn Y. Stevens, LeeAnn M. Sutherland, and Joseph S. Krajcik
Middle and high school science teachers of all disciplines can use this book and its focus on nine "big ideas" to help students understand fundamental science concepts across disciplines. The big ideas that serve as the text’s organiza­tional and thematic framework are (1) size and scale, (2) struc­ture of matter, (3) forces and interactions, (4) quantum effects, (5) size-dependent properties, (6) self-assembly, (7) tools and instrumentation, (8) models and simulations, and (9) science, technology, and society.
