5 Featured Guests Susan Pruet is the director of Engaging Youth in Engineering, a community partnership program in Mobile, Ala., that aims to link science and math curricula with real- life engineering projects. She is a former middle grades mathematics teacher and mathematics education professor. Deborah L. Ives is the Mathematics Instructional Leader in the Morristown, N.J. school district and Lead Content Advisor for WNET THIRTEEN’s Get the Math program. She has led curriculum design and implementation projects in music, videogame design, fashion, and engineering/aerospace.

7 Get the Math is made possible by: Deborah L. Ives, Ed.D., Lead Content Advisor

8 Essential Questions How can we best prepare ALL our students to understand and make sense of the world around them? How can we integrate reasoning and problem solving within the curriculum as a STEM Teacher /Project Manager?

9 NCTM Focus in HS Mathematics: Reasoning & Sense Making Many students have difficulty because they find mathematics meaningless… Reasoning and sense making should occur in every mathematics classroom every day. NCTM 2009, pp. 5-6

10 Reasoning Habits of Mind Analyzing a problem Seeking and using connections Implementing a strategy Reflecting on a solution NCTM 2009, p.9

11 Mathematical Practices* Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Model with mathematics. Use appropriate (technology) tools strategically. Attend to precision. Look for and make use of structure. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. *Common Core Standards 2010 Use Real World Applications to:

12 Get the Math Website Full episode and video segments Interactive challenges Lesson Plans for Problem Based Learning Classroom Video of Music Lesson

13 Problem Solving: Get the Math Scenarios Music and Production Fashion Design Videogame Entrepreneurship

14 AERO-STEM ACADEMY Aerospace Science Technology Engineering Math

15 Engineering the Future Science, Technology, and the Design Process High School Initiative Developed by the National Center for Technological Literacy® Published by Key Curriculum Press Museum of Science, Boston.

16 Seek out partnerships within the industry to enhance relevance and rigor via internships, mentoring, fieldtrips, guest speakers, etc. –NAVAIR Lakehurst NJ –Lockheed Martin Moorestown NJ –ExxonMobil Paulsboro & Clinton NJ –DuPont Deepwater Point

17 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

18 MAXIMIZING COMMUNITY STEM COOPERATION Early student exposure to STEM. Promoting technical visits by engineers to participating schools. Providing NAVAIR internships and co-op programs that encourage interest in engineering. Nurture and sustain Education Partnerships.

19 PARTICIPATING IN SCHOOL EVENTS Judging science fairs and cardboard canoe races. Participating in high school career development days. Attending technical workshops and making engineering presentations on the relevance of a STEM education.

20 Seek additional resources of interest to your students: (Videos of lessons) (Next Generation Learning Challenges) (Southern Regional Education Board) (Museum of Science: Engineering the Future) (Naval Air Home Page) (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) (National Science Digital Library) STEM Teacher as Project Manager Deborah L. Ives, Ed.D.

21 Engaging Youth through Engineering

22 Some Context Alabama and Mobile Mobile County Public School System (MCPSS) Mobile Area Education Foundation (MAEF)

23 Birthing of EYE…..in 2006 Requested by business leaders Engage our Youth! Prepare our Youth! We need workers with 21 st century learning skills! Influenced by Mobile’s alarming drop out rate Mayor’s report on dropouts

24 EYE Student Outcomes Students will be able to  Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and technology  Analyze and interpret data  Identify, formulate, and solve problems  Communicate effectively  Function as part of a multidisciplinary team  Use the techniques, skills, and tools necessary in the modern workforce  Recognize the need for, and engage in, ongoing learning

25 The EYE Model (1 Feeder Pattern) Need the “Multi-Dose Pack” Elementary Schools Develop Awareness and Influence Beliefs EYE Clubs and Camps Middle Schools Engage and Motivate - Explore Involve business/industry volunteers Curricular and extra-curricular activities High School Encourage and Support Provide mentors and internships Engineering the Future course

26 EYE Strategies at the Middle Grades  6 th, 7 th, 8 th Grade EYE Modules!  8th grade technology-based Career Discoveries course  Electives & Clubs, e.g., BEST Robotics

27 The Middle Grades Key “Dosage” 9 EYE Modules* 6 th Grade Earth Science Harnessing the Wind Designing for Disaster Don’t Go with the Flow 7 th Grade Life Science EYE on Mars Engineering Designer Puppies Catch Me if You Can 8 th Grade Physical Science Balloon Rocket Cars Designing a Roller Coaster TBD * The development and research related to the EYE Modules are partially funded through the NSF Grant #

28 EYE’s Newest Module “ Catch Me if You Can” Design challenge – create a blood clot catcher 3 days in math class Proportional reasoning (scale models) Unit Rates (blood flow rate) 4 days in science class Circulatory system Direction of blood flow and size and location of vessels (where is best to place the clot catcher) Materials exploration Design, test, evaluate, redesign, test

29 EYE Industry Volunteers Engage Students My Job – My “Story” Engineering Design Process Support Teachers Extra pair of hands Connect Teachers, Students and Industry Workforce needs Preparation needed, e.g., math/science coursework

30 How to secure needed resources? Partnerships Community based organization (MAEF) Higher education Local business & industry Grants, e.g., Gulf of Mexico Alliance Shell Oil National Science Foundation

31 How to find the critical STEM volunteers? Helpful to have a connector and a process– Mobile Area Education Foundation Web-based process

32 Web-based Volunteer Sign Up Process Volunteers Assist with Module Implementation Receive Reminder with School Directions Post Feedback on Web Site “EYE Help ” Notice Goes to Industry Liaison Volunteers Receive NoticeVolunteers Sign Up on Web Module Implementation Schedule is Developed Principal Approves Teachers Approve

33 Teaching the EYE & STEM Way… New Skills (for many) Key Traits (for success) Integrating knowledge from field of “expertise” into STEM Using engineering design as an instructional strategy Using problems with no one right answer Managing teams & materials Using technology to organize, analyze, and share data Using more web-based resources, e.g., EYE Middle Grades Wiki, You Tube videos Enjoy learning Ability to work in multi- disciplinary team Value inquiry based teaching Willing to let teams make, and learn from, mistakes Knowledge of their field (science or math) Ability and comfort with locating and using new resources

34 End Result-- Students motivated to take more math & science…as prep for STEM careers!!

35 Stay tuned to learn more about EYE and the modules Our Work – EYE Susan Pruet: th Grade Modules and STEM Lessons th Grade Modules and STEM Lessons th Grade Modules and STEM Lessons
