How science works Interactive allows students

to carry out investigations that may be impractical

to do in the classroom, offering the opportunity

to collect and analyse data and experiment with

variables across a wide range of investigations.

Each investigation is placed in a real-life context

and can be used in the run up to laboratory

work or to support science literary writing –

encouraging students to use their findings to

develop an argument.

■ Includes each investigation’s raw data to help

develop skills in recording and processing data

■ Features self-assessment questions to review

knowledge

■ clearly linked to the National curriculum

objectives and assessment Focuses

■ can be used on any whiteboard for whole-class

teaching or on Pcs for independent work

“A really fresh idea –

the students can lead their own learning.”
