“Hypothesis-Experiment Class (Kasetsu)” is an outstanding Japanese way to teach science. We demonstrate how HEC enables students to fully engage with and learn science concepts using our unique materials (Jugyosho). The majority of students say that HEC is FUN! — regardless of when, where or by whom it is carried out. This session presents an introduction of HEC through one of the typical Classbooks, which is widely practised in all grade from primary education to university liberal arts education. Please look at the sample page of material linked on the bottom left of this page.
     At the previous meeting 2018, we announced our project of English-translation and publication of Dr Itakura's original works advocating HEC. It has been realised. The new book includes detailed descriptions of the theory and method, and all the relevant issues. It is a feature of this book that carefully selected "Classbooks", which are inseparable with HEC, are appended. Also at the international lunch booth,  we will introduce this new publication (jointly by Kyoto University Press and Trans Pacific Press).

Please also consider participating in another session we will provide on Friday afternoon. We will focus on another representative Classbook appended to the new book.
