### Importance in 21st century education math and science

• 1. Math and Science in 21st Century Education By: Brittney McPeak, Caleb Murray, Morgan Dixon, Zachary Sissel
• 2. Definitions Math:  The study of how things relate to one another using numbers. It shows the relationships among numbers, shapes, and quantities using signs, symbols, and proofs.
• 3. Definitions Science definition:  The study of the physical and natural world by using experiments and systematic observations.
• 4. Importance in 21st Century Education  We are faced with math and science aspects every day in our lives.  Provides a foundation and helps students master multi- dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st Century.  Encourages Critical Thinking skills through students’ use of experiments, journals, data analysis, and projects.
• 6. How it Applies to 21st Century Learning  Both subjects can be difficult to incorporate into technology and have often been thought of subjects only certain people pick up.  It is now dangerous to think that way, as well as teach in a way that forces children to memorize facts and numbers.  21st century math and science should be focused on problem solving and using resources to solve those real world problems and issues.  Students should also be taught how to use each subject and apply it in ways other than writing problems, but rather make it have meaning to their environment.
• 7. How it Applies to 21st Century Learning Questions to stay on track as a teacher:  -Are my students learning to value math and science, not just doing it?  -Are my students using all their resources, and do they understand how to use them?  -Do my students feel confident?  -Are my students capable of using al resources to solve a problem?  -Are my students creating new approaches to solve the problem?
• 8. Real Life Applications A real life application of using math:  Setting: Physical Education Class  Topic: Baseball  Application: Throughout the baseball unit, students should be required to keep their stats. Then at the end of the unit, students will calculate things like the batting averages.  http://www.basic-mathematics.com/calculating-batting- average.html
• 9. Real Life Applications A real life application of using science:  Setting: World History Class  Topic: Industrial Revolution  Application: When discussing inventions in the Industrial Revolution, it will be necessary to talk about the steam engine. This is a perfect opportunity to incorporate science, by explaining how steam engine works. Furthermore, the class can explore the benefits of the Steam Engine and other alternative forms of energy producing machines today and compare their effects on the environment.
• 11. Technology  YouTube - Videos on how things work like the Steam Engine.  Blogs - Share blogs from some of Math’s great minds.  WebQuests - Create a lesson of you own and allow the students to navigate on their own.
