Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel is first on the scene as a stolen car crashes on a misty, wet Manchester morning. The driver is dead, but the biggest shock awaits her when she discovers the body of a child wrapped in plastic in the boot of the car. As Jessica struggles to discover the identity of the driver, a thin trail leads her first to a set of clothes buried in the woods and then to a list of children's names abandoned in an allotment shed. With the winter chill setting in and parents looking for answers, Jessica must find out who has been watching local children, and how this connects to a case that has been unsolved for 14 years. This is book four in the Jessica Daniel series, following on from Locked In, Vigilante and The Woman In Black.
The Eighth Edition of Teaching Children Science provides comprehensive coverage of elementary science methods focusing on "what to teach" and "how to teach it." Using Abruscato's well known "discovery approach", the book includes all three major components of teaching science-methods, content, and activities-organized in a format that allows teachers ultimate flexibility. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video.
New to this Edition:
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are integrated throughout the book.
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are addressed in Chapter 7's discussion of integrating science with other disciplines.
Users of previous editions will notice restructuring of chapters 3 and 4 to better unify theory and practice as well as a new lesson example that models how the NGSS might inform lesson planning.

THIS WORK EXPLORES THE URBAN EXPERIENCES OF STREET CHILDREN IN SAO PAULO, BRAZIL THROUGH THE MATHEMATICAL EPISTEMIC REGIMES AT THE CORE OF THEIR SURVIVAL STRATEGIES. WE ALSO DRAW ATTENTION TO THE SITUATION OF STREET CHILDREN ACROSS TIME, SPACE, CULTURE, AND HISTORY. OUR GOAL IS TO RECOGNIZE, UNDERSTAND, AND VALIDATE FORMS OF MATHEMATICS CONSTRUCTED AND USED OUTSIDE OF THE ESTABLISHED INSTITUTIONS OF MATHEMATICAL PRODUCTION. WE BASE OUR ANALYSIS ON "THE MATHEMATICAL IMAGINATION", WHICH DRAWS TOGETHER SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIONISM AND ETHNOMATHEMATICS. THEORETICALLY, WE DRAW HEAVILY ON THE DURKHEIMIAN TRADITION IN SOCIOLOGY AND ANTHROPOLOGY. WE FOCUS ON A FORM OF PRACTICE THAT LINKS THE FORMAL AND THE INFORMAL IN ORDER TO REALIZE THE FULL POWER OF MATHEMATICAL KNOWLEDGE AS A SOCIAL THING (IN DURKHEIM'S SENSE), A PRODUCT OF THE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT EXPRESSES COLLECTIVE REALITIES AND A CATEGORY OF KNOWLEDGE PRESENT IN EVERY CULTURE. THIS IS AS TRUE FOR MATHEMATICS AT THE MARGINS AS IT IS FOR PROFESSIONAL MATHEMATICS. OUR WORK CONTRIBUTES TO AN EMERGING POLITICAL MANIFESTO OF THE MARGINAL THAT DEMONSTRATES THE SOCIAL REALITIES AND SOCIAL POWER OF THEIR MATHEMATICS. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE OF INTEREST TO SOCIAL SCIENTISTS, STUDENTS OF MATHEMATICS AND ETHNOMATHEMATICS, AND EVERYONE INTERESTED IN THE SITUATION OF MARGINALIZED CHILDREN.
