Do you know "Kasetsu", Hypothesis-Experiment Class?
In this session, we will present a concrete method and theory on how HEC enables students to engage in learning science concepts with unique teaching materials indispensable to HEC. The majority of students exposed to HEC evaluate the class as FUN!  Regardless of when, where, and by whom it is carried out.
   Attractive Classbooks in various fields (starting with mechanics and physics) have been developed and utilized in all grades from primary education to university liberal arts education.
   Please come and see what HEC is through one of the typical Classbooks "Objects and their Weight". This Classbook is usually carried out in classes of 8-14 years-old. We will also show some of the real class records at primary schools in Japan.
