INNOVATIVE MATH AND SCIENCE APPLICATIONS AT SCHOOLS (STEM)

This course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to support school staff with a new and innovative approach to teach Maths and Science and encourage their students learn Maths & Science in more effective ways in line with priorities of Erasmus Plus Program.

“The best mathematics teachers will be the ones who have been prepared to empower their students as mathematicians and to teach students that mathematics makes sense.”

While all curriculum areas share some of the same issues and concerns, individual curriculum areas seem to also have concerns specific to them and their courses. The list below looks at the top ten concerns for Math & Science teachers;

  1. Prerequisite Knowledge
  2. Connections to Real Life
  3. Cheating Issues
  4. Kids with “Math Blocks”
  5. Varying Instruction
  6. Dealing With Absences
  7. Grading Concerns
  8. Need for After School Tutoring
  9. Having Students of Different Abilities in Class
  10. Homework Issues

The ultimate goals of mathematics & science instruction are students’ understanding the material presented, applying the skills, and recalling the concepts in the future. There’s little benefit in students recalling a formula or procedure to prepare for an assessment tomorrow only to forget the core concept by next week. It’s imperative for teachers to focus on making sure that the students understand the material and not just memorize the procedures. Some ways to teach for understanding in the mathematics classroom will be focused on:

  1. Create an effective class opener.
  2. Introduce topics using multiple representations.
  3. Solve the problems many ways.
  4. Show the application.
  5. Have students communicate their reasoning.
  6. Finish class with a summary.

Moreover the participants will be familiar with the Web 2.0 tools and use of digital Technologies as well as the ways of fostering Creativity and Collaboration in Math & Science Classes

As a course provider, we want to develop the teachers’ professional skills, and introduce to appropriate applications, ways and methods to teach Maths& Science  related to 21st-century teaching methods focusing on creative thinking with interactive and inspiring workshops in a friendly atmosphere. Goals of the course;

 

Learning Outcomes:

All the participants will:

  • Identify the Obstacles in Teaching and Learning Math & Science
  • Focus on the best practices about teaching Math & Science in Europe and in other parts of the world
  • State the main points of common Math & Science curricula in all levels in Europe
  • Define new and innovative methods and applications in teaching Math & Science at schools
  • Be familiar with the web 2.0 tools and digital technologies in math & science classes
  • Foster creativity and collaboration in Math & Science classes

Objectives of the Course:
