Let's Build Roller Coasters!

Let's Build Roller Coasters! | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
"Summer fun. It is the absolute best. Whether you visit Six Flags, Kings Island, a Disney Park, Busch Gardens, or another amusement park, the looping lines of roller coasters offer the perfect lens for getting students to interact with STEM concepts. An old garden hose, duct tape, and a marble: the only materials that you need to build a roller coaster. Cut the hose in half, and then duct tape the two segments together down the back to create a nice groove where the two hoses meet for the marble to ride, on top. Then the materials are ready for students to explore the potential and kinetic energy of roller coasters."

The push for STEM education opens the door to a different kind of learning experience, one that allows students to manipulate content in 3D, test ideas, and innovate. It's a departure from the traditional lecture learning of the past, and an approach that opens the door to possibilities, problem solving, and progressive integration of subjects. Thrill seekers wanted.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 14, 2:39 PM
Roller Coasters are one thing students can build. A well-thought out project engages.

Putting Math and Science Back into STEM Projects @ajjuliani 

Putting Math and Science Back into STEM Projects @ajjuliani  | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Many teachers have done the spaghetti and marshmallow challenge in the classroom and called it a STEM project. It’s a great activity, but is it really a STEM activity? Sure there’s an engineering aspect to it, but what about the other components? Looking back, these types of activities are what we refer to as surface-level STEM activities.

FULL STEAM AHEAD! End your school year with fun projects now! OR....get a great start for next year!

Sample Student's curator insight, May 21, 5:48 PM
As the introduction states, STEM is integrated, it is not and either/or approach to learning. It overcomes the silo effect, in which we impose artificial barriers between each of the sciences and resist any areas of overlap.
This approach means that students' learning is authentic, genuine problems do not recognise boundaries, and a truly wicked problem requires a holistic approach to its solution.

caitlin braddick's curator insight, May 29, 6:03 AM

The Birdman STEM Project challenges students to explore Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution and design a specialised bird beak that must overcome the challenges of the natural environment. A blog at STEMstudents.net allows students to share their products and outcomes.

 

The SAMR Model and higher order thinking skills are addressed in these project ideas by enhancing the real-world application of the activities through engineering tools, needing to be responsive to their environment. The Birdman STEM Project is a tactile/physical project that can be produced using 3D image building technology. The beak of the Birdman must respond and evolve to the simulated environment. This project is dynamic and deeper level requiring deeper student research, immersion and understanding

From content consumption to content creation, there are many ways to use mobile devices with students. They can create how-to videos for authentic audiences, explain their thinking through screencasting, or use scannable technology in the math classroom, for example. Mobile devices can also be used to help students practice foundational math skills and build their math fluency. You might decide to use an app on this list as part of an intervention plan or add it to a newsletter for families.

You Probably Don't Suck at Math, You Just Need a Better Attitude - INVERSE

"As you may remember from your own (in)glorious youth, most university students are required to take a statistics course even if they hate math and aren’t in a particularly numbers-heavy major.


Ellen Peters, a professor of psychology at Ohio State University, heard this was driving a lot undergrads on her campus crazy. “A lot of the students are really threatened by it. They’re kind of afraid of it, they dread taking it,” she says. “If they do dread it, they can end up in a cycle of failure.”


Curious to see if she could make a positive change among math-phobic Buckeyes, Peters created an intervention that tested whether or not value affirmation could improve student’s comfort and ability with numbers, otherwise known as numerical literacy or numeracy.


The results, which were published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE, indicate that confidence and core values have a lot to do with learning the numbers."

21 #Real #World #Math #Lessons for High School Students - Free Tech 4 Teachers @rmbyrne | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Getting to teach economics lessons is one of my favorite things about being a social studies teacher. In economics lessons high school students start to see how many of the math concepts, logic concepts, and political theory they've learned can apply to them in the "real world" after high school. Econ Ed Link is a great resource for lesson plans, videos, and interactive activities for teaching economics concepts. They recently published an updated list of their Math In the Real World lesson plan library.

Math In the Real World lesson plans include activities to teach students how to analyze business profit and loss, how the stock market works, and how distribution of income can influence government policies. The Math In the Real World lesson plans also include activities that have a more personal appeal to students. Those lesson plans include building credit, building a savings, and the dangers of payday loan schemes. The payday loan lesson plan is one that has previously been featured here on Free Technology for Teachers.
