SERS: The Math and Science Teaching System Overview [Event flyer]
Presented By: Kathy Clemmer, Director of the Center for Math and Science Teaching (CMAST)
The Math and Science Teaching System is a systematic approach to instructional design that promotes student engagement in learning mathematics and science, perseverance in problem solving, and embraces students as equal partners in assessment for learning. At it’s core, MAST is a methodology for designing, delivering, and assessing student learning in high school mathematics and science courses. Within this system, learning targets are the instructional driver, homework is a choice, assessments are not averaged, student interests are consistently incorporated into the lesson design, and technology is a tool integrated throughout. In this talk I will share the highlights of the MAST System, the successes, the challenges, and the implications for entry level college math and science courses.
This talk is part of the STEM Education Research Seminar series. The goal of the series is to provide a forum for faculty working on research related to STEM education to present and discuss their work. All interested welcome.
The STEM Education Research Seminar is organized by Anna Bargagliotti, Ph.D., Mathematics, and Jeff Phillips, Ph.D., Physics. Please contact them directly or via firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to email@example.com or x85866.
