Master in the Art of Teaching: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

MTH 505 Problem Solving and Number & Operations (K-5)

Develop deeper understanding of key concepts as you engage in mathematical discourse, problem solve, and share strategies.

SCI 505 Teaching Physical Science and Engineering Design (3-5)

SCI 505 is designed to give students foundational experience in meeting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for teaching science with engineering and the National Science Education Standards (NSES). This course, along with SCI 515, establishes a foundation for teaching scientific and engineering content knowledge and problem-solving skills. This course emphasizes physical science and introduction to engineering topics integrated with design. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of how to teach scientific concepts such as Forces and Interactions, Energy, Waves: Waves and Information, Structure and Properties of Matter. Upper elementary education students are the intended audience. Participants will engage in scientific discourse to explain their thinking and share strategies. Online teaching laboratories are also included.

SCI 515 Teaching Life, Earth and Space Science (3-5)

SCI 515 is designed to give students foundational experience in meeting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for teaching science with engineering and the National Science Education Standards (NSES). This course, along with SCI 505, establishes a foundation for teaching scientific and engineering content knowledge and problem-solving skills. This course emphasizes life science and earth and space science integrated with engineering design. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of how to teach scientific concepts such as Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems, Inheritance and Variation of Traits, Structure, Function, and Information Processing, Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems, Weather and Climate, Earth’s Systems: Processes That Shape the Earth and Space Systems: Stars and the Solar System. Upper elementary education students are the intended audience. Participants will engage in scientific discourse to explain their thinking and share strategies. Online teaching laboratories are also included.
