Integrated Mathematics and Physical Science for Teachers

This course is designed for secondary school mathematics and science teachers. It develops interdisciplinary material from mathematics and the physical sciences to illustrate basic mathematical concepts as they apply to physical problems and phenomena. Participants learn modern techniques of instrumentation and analysis-including calculator- and computer-based systems, e.g., CBL and MBL data acquisition and analysis systems-and utilize them in hands-on data taking and analysis. The course uses inquiry-based methods to develop scientific and quantitative reasoning skills. Special emphasis is given to the development of effective pedagogies for teachers of middle and high school.
