The use of current techniques and materials in teaching mathematics in grades 5-9. Using an integrated approach of pedagogy and content special attention will be given to new information technologies, reform-based teaching practices and problem-solving and reasoning. General mathematical concepts are aligned with the academic standards of the Massachusetts curriculum frameworks.

Using an integrated approach of pedagogy and content special attention will be given to new information technologies, reform-based teaching practices and problem-solving and reasoning. General mathematical concepts are aligned with the academic standards of the Massachusetts curriculum frameworks.

Theoretical frameworks for STEM education research. Students will focus on the development of a specific set of research tools relevant to the study of reasoning in STEM fields in a variety of contexts, including the analysis of discourse, gesture. flow of interaction, and learning outcomes such as pre¿¿and post-tests of content. Attention will be spent connecting research methods to theoretical frameworks and practical outcomes of analysis. Students will be expected to produce a specific analysis of some classroom data.

An internship conducted at a local research institution, the Kaput Center or at an institution out of state or internationally. Students will be mentored by an adjunct research associate at the host institute to develop their research skills in the field including data collection and analysis, and enhancing their awareness of the complexities of educational research.
