Math and science

  1. 1. Math and Science In 21st Century Education
  2. 2. Role in 21st Century Education Technology and 21st Century Learning allows students to learn mathematics and sciences from a more digitalized and technology based form.
  3. 3. Definitions • The ability to evaluate information based on its sources and the methods used to generate it. • Math in 21st Century Education • Reason with numbers and other mathematical concepts • Science in 21st Century Education • Evaluate scientific arguments and apply conclusions
  4. 4. Example- Blowing Balloons • Students will work in groups on this science experiment • Students will use mathematic skills to measure 40 mL of water in a bottle then to add a teaspoon of baking soda into bottle then stir • The students then will group decided amount of lemon juice into the bottle and quickly cover the top of the bottle with the balloon • The group with the biggest balloon wins
  5. 5. Blogs Students will work in groups to produce a blog on how they think the experiment will turn out.
  6. 6. YouTube Students will watch YouTube videos on the effects of baking soda and lemon juice as well as the experiment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4meoFPPsaA Students will also film their own experiment to put on YouTube
  7. 7. Podcasts Students will record a podcast of their lab report
  8. 8. Pinterest Students will then use Pinterest to look up other experiments using baking soda
  9. 9. Additional Technology Overview • Smart Board • Introduction to units with relevant TedTalks • Social Media • Smart Phone Fridays • Class YouTube • peer-to-peer learning • graded on performance • Blogs • promotes critical thinking • involves non-science thinkers • multidisciplinary • STEM challenges by NASA
  10. 10. Why is math and science important? • Studying and engaging students in math and science can benefit the economy • Promote more jobs in America • Science and math is used throughout daily life • Diverse and well rounded individual • Creativity • Critical Thinking • Problem Solving • Communication • Collaboration
  11. 11. Conclusion • Centers around the importance of learning science and math • promotes choice of STEM career • provides a pathway for students to DO.
