21st Century Education Project

  1. 1. Math & Science By: Taylor Bruer, Chelsea Miller, and Ashley Williams
  2. 2. Definitions • MATH- (math·e·mat·ics) (mth-mtks)n. (used with a sing. verb)The study of the measurement, properties, and relationships of quantities and sets, using numbers and symbols. • Science-A)Methodological activity, discipline, or study: I've got packing a suitcase down to a science. B) An activity that appears to require study and method: the science of purchasing. C) Knowledge, especially that gained through experience D) The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.
  3. 3. Importance • Math and Science are important because we are surrounded by aspects of life that are directly and indirectly a product of a form of math and/or science.
  4. 4. How does it apply? • Because we are required to take math and science classes in public education. • Our world is changing and technology is becoming more used in schools and building computer programs requires a certain level of knowledge in math and science. • Even if students aren’t in a “math/science” class math and science are woven into other subjects as well. • We use it in everyday tasks throughout life. • As 21st Century learners we have grown up with technology and there are more effective ways of teaching because of the impact math/science have had on our teaching/learning methods.
  5. 5. Examples • Whithout 21st Century Education being applied to math and science, we would not be able to construct the items listed below: • Technology • Building everyday materials (buildings, chairs, houses, ect.) • Modern Medicine • Food (Chemistry) • Fashion (measuring) • Machines (Cars, heavy equipment) • Communication (computers, computer programs, phones, educational videos, ect.) • Environment (Going Green) • Advertising • Economy (budgets, news, ect.) • Roadway system (bridges/tunnels)
  6. 6. Role of Technology MATH • Teacher plays a video/Podcast on lesson instead of old fashion teaching. • TED • Instead of in class worksheet students can text or email answers to teacher. • Technology makes it easier for teachers to apply lessons to real-life situations. SCIENCE • Instead of a lab report, students can make a video of themselves preforming the experiment and the teacher can simply watch the video. • Hands on activities. • Students are able to do more projects instead of just taking tests • Students are able to watch videos of experiments that are impossible to do in a school setting.
  7. 7. How to use technology? • For the first pillar, which is science, you could the second life person to go into a cell. When they’re in the cell that would have to point out the cell membrane, mitochondria, cytoplasm, and nucleus. They would have to do this for the plant and animal cell. • For the second pillar, which is math, they would be given a certain WebQuest that they would have to complete. This would be in place of an exam. There will also be a song given from youtube about the multiplying, which could be used for younger kids. •
  8. 8. Well Though Out Example: Science&Math • Students are going to be ask to learn the difference between a solid, liquid and a gas. They will be introduced to the assignment by completing a WebQuest. If they are having problems with the WebQuest, or questions about the assignment, there will be a Facebook discussion for both parents and students to ask questions to each other and the teacher. Next, they will create a YouTube video of themselves performing an experiment where they turn water from ice, to water, and then to a gas by heating it up and making steam. After posting the video, they will go to a blog page and discuss what they learned about the assignment, what they thought was fun, ect. To include math in the same assignment…
  9. 9. Science & Math Cont. • We would ask kids to change the temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius using the correct equations for the melting and freezing point. • Students will need to find out how to measure water when it is a solid, liquid, and a gas. They will also state when it is heaviest, in pounds and kilograms. Meaning they will have to convert pounds to kilograms. • They will need to know the time difference in how fast it takes water to freeze and boil from one cup to two cups.
  10. 10. Well Thought Out Example: Math • Students will be asked to go to a specific WebQuest where they will learn the basics of multiplication, so they will eventually be able to do long multiplication. There will be different games they will get to play that will involve long multiplication. There will also be a Facebook page for the class to ask questions and tell what they most enjoyed about the WebQuest.
  11. 11. How Can You Benefit? • Learning Math and Science in throughout school benefits us more than we think it does. Yeah, you might not be directly using Algebra and Chemistry in you everyday career, but you do use the problem solving methods it indirectly teaches you. Also, some things you learn in upper level math and science courses take a long time to complete and involve steps, we know from personal experience, this teaches students patience and how to complete one thing before moving on to the next. We use simple math in our everyday lives doing things like, balancing a checkbook or cooking. • Math and Science surround us, we wouldn’t have a lot of the things we rely on without math and science. Even if you do not use it every single day, it is important to know because you never know when you are going to need to know the things you learn whether they effect you or other people.
