"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 "Objects and their Weight". Our session at the International Day in Liverpool 2018 will be repeated here in Birmingham. Please look at the pdf 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. This new publication can be purchased at the venue.
