ASU Research Center: Deep Conceptual Learning Requires "New Methods" in Math and Science

ASU Research Center: Deep Conceptual Learning Requires "New Methods" in Math and Science | Rigor and Higher Order Thinking in the Math Classroom | Scoop.it

Because the Common Core standards in math and the soon-to-be-released science standards emphasis depth over breadth, educators must look to new methods, aided by technology delivery, to turn skim-the-surface students into deep conceptual learners.

 

"With an emphasis on depth over breadth, the standards are causing math and science educators to rethink current practices by which many students learn only enough to get by on the next test or state assessment."

 

“While it’s clear that deep conceptual learning is a desired outcome of the Common Core standards, just asking students to learn deeply isn’t enough.”

 

In a white paper released by Arizona State University'sTechnology Based Learning and Research Center, co-authors Peter Rillero, Ph.D., and Helen Padgett, Ph.D. suggest systems like Adaptive Curriculum's web-based concept mastery solution will help educators quickly and effectively shift gears to address the new standards.
