Most pupils start their scientific learning with previously formed ideas, based on prior reasoning or experience, but these ideas are often founded on common misconceptions, which if left unexplained can continue into adulthood. The new edition of this bestselling book offers advice on how to recognize and challenge such misconceptions. This book offers coverage of the most common scientific misconceptions that you may come across and, in addition to background theoretical and research material, offers appropriate teaching strategies to help you seek out and challenge misconceptions during your primary science teaching. This handy book has been expanded to offer even more support and practical advice for dealing with the common misconceptions encountered in the primary science classroom. Michael Allen describes over 100 common misconceptions and their potential origins, and then offers creative activities to help you grasp the underlying scientific concepts and bring them alive in the classroom, as well as practical strategies to improve pupil learning. Highlights of the second edition include: Updated in line with the new primary science National Curriculum Programme of Study Incorporates the latest research findings Covers the new National Curriculum elements and other more advanced material including Drugs, Energy, the Environment and Evolution Includes new boxed features: Did you Know?, Famous Scientists, and Be Safe This easy to navigate and friendly guide is a superb toolkit to support you as you prepare to teach in the primary school, irrespective of your training route.

Getting Started with CNC: Personal Digital Fabrication with ShapeOko and Other Computer-Controlled Routers 1st Edition
Getting Started with CNC is the definitive introduction to working with affordable desktop and benchtop CNCs, written by the creator of the popular open hardware CNC, the Shapeoko. Accessible 3D printing introduced the masses to computer-controlled additive fabrication. But the flip side of that is subtractive fabrication: instead of adding material to create a shape like a 3D printer does, a CNC starts with a solid piece of material and takes away from it. Although inexpensive 3D printers can make great things with plastic, a CNC can carve highly durable pieces out of a block of aluminum, wood, and other materials. This book covers the fundamentals of designing for–and working with–affordable ($500-$3000) CNCs.
About the Author
Edward Ford is a Maker. He was the kid that took his parents’ TV apart to see how it worked, along with the toaster, fridge, and any other thing that he could wedge a screwdriver in to. He is a staunch advocate for open hardware, open source software, and making the world a better place by empowering people to create their own high-quality products. Edward wants everyone to be their own manufacturer. In 2011 Edward designed and released Project Shapeoko, an open hardware desktop CNC machine. The project is now in its second release and has found a home in thousands of Makers’ shops all across the world. Outside of work, you can find Edward spending time (aka playing!) with his two young daughters or checking items off the never ending honey-do list his wife has assigned him.
