Teaching Engineering Applications in Math and Science
What is TEAMS?
TEAMS creates a network of K-12 teachers in Montana and provides professional development that assists teachers with incorporating engineering applications to enhance math and science teaching. Faculty from the MSU College of Engineering and College of Education, Health & Human Development partner with teachers from Montana school districts, many of which are located on/near Native American reservations, to provide these educators with the tools that help them incorporate engineering applications in teaching state and National Math and Science Standards and Benchmarks. Through this partnership, teachers and students alike gain a greater knowledge of math and science content using real-world engineering applications, as well as gain an awareness of what engineers do, what careers are available as an engineer, and how to best prepare for a career in engineering.
- providing support for 6-12th grade teachers in effectively teaching math and science content that meets standards,
- creating a learning community among grades 6-12th grade teachers and MSU education and engineering faculty,
- and broadening participation in engineering by developing an awareness of engineering careers and by improving grade 6-12th grade student preparedness in math and science.
The College of Engineering’s TEAMS project is hosting a 2016 teacher professional development workshop AUGUST 10-11 in Great Falls! For more information about this workshop, which is open to middle school/high school MT teachers, please contact Amy Stix at 406-994-5567 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Halliburton Foundation is generously supporting the summer 2016 TEAMS workshop in Great Falls, MT.
