Abstract

Engineering Problem Solving for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education appeals to the reader on several levels. It is a guide for teachers, including technology teachers, who want their students to learn authentic strategies for solving real-life, discipline-based problems. It focuses on an engineering problem solving method, and it touches on interdisciplinary team management, instructional management, and student assessment. More importantly, this resource provides practical examples of how teachers have used the method successfully and why industry leaders believe the method is relevant to the skills they require on the job. Engineering Problem Solving for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education will provide the technology teacher educator with a resource for problem solving instruction in both technical and methods classes. At the same time, the book is unsettling to the technology educator because it omits some concepts that are fundamental to the field, and it illustrates the importance of issues that technology education must face at both the national and grassroots levels.
