IMPORTANCE OF MATH AND SCIENCEIn 21st century education, math and science provide many importances:• They help us live our everyday lives:- following a recipe- paying bills,- balancing a financial budget• Advances in medicine and science benefit us on many levels:- improves our health- provides and insight to the world around us
ROLE OF MATH AND SCIENCE IN 21ST CENTURYOur world, in terms of adaptation, is changing drastically. Studentsand people, in general, need to be accustomed with the basicnotions that math and science provide. These subjects can helpbetter our country in many ways, but only one is of great importance: Math and science helps our country form the foundation forinnovation:- science creates ideas that will help solve the problems that we, as a country,face- to help solve problems with science, we must first understand mathematics.
• Voki- use to answer homeworkquestions by communicatingwith classmates• QR- use to check accurate answers• Posters- teaching a specificlesson- charts and graphsTECHNOLOGY TOOLS• Web Quests- teacher makes web quest forstudents to participate in mathand science scavenger hunts• Twitter and Facebook- make a classroom page to askquestions, check on assignments,and class discussions
Charts and GraphsPosterDuring a math lesson in a 1stgrade class, students caneach create a chart or graphposter in order to show howcharts and graphs are usedand how they workdifferently.TECHNOLOGY EXAMPLE
CONCLUSIONIn conclusion, math and science benefit our lives on a daily basis. Thereare many types of technology tools that provide us with knowledge that will helpprepare us for the future, as well as the present. Math and science play importantroles in the 21st century in that they can help better our country in many ways,such as building a foundation for innovation. Technology is constantly changing,so there will be more ways to incorporate it into a classroom each year.
