STEM 959 - Examining the World through Data and Shape |

An investigative approach to the study of the concepts underlying the mathematics taught in grades K-6 and the connections to science, engineering, and technology. As students explore the relationships between shape, dimension, and transformations in several contexts and collect data, describe characteristics of data, and infer results, they develop an understanding of the basic concepts of geometry and statistics and the ways in which mathematics can be used to study variation in the real-world. Collaboration between students is an important component of the course as is the development of a positive disposition towards mathematics. The Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice and Standards for Mathematical Content is used to help students relate the concepts learned in the course to their classroom practice.
