CT 278 - Integrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in the School Curriculum, Grades 5-12


Semester Hours: 3
Spring
This course is designed for teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in grades 5-12. It focuses on curriculum connections of the four disciplines. A contextual approach to learning is modeled as students engage in a series of problem-based activities involving mathematical exploration, scientific inquiry and engineering technology. A primary consideration is the use of mathematics for clarifying and elucidating scientific and technological phenomena. For this purpose, a variety of exemplary instructional units will be examined. As a culminating project, students will create and present their own STEM unit plans, focusing on the interconnectedness of the disciplines. Twenty-first century information technologies will support learning activities throughout the course. 

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Competency in school mathematics and science content. (Formerly SED 278, Integrating Math, Science, and Technology in the Secondary Curriculum.)
