Greer, Kania; Stueve, Lisa Michelle – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2019

In 2016 Georgia Southern University Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education (i 2 STEM e ) was approached by a collaborative group of educators from India now living in the US. They noticed a need for teachers in India to have access to the Interdisciplinary STEM Education pedagogical techniques through focused professional development. Over…

Stehr, Eryn Michelle; He, Jia – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2019

U.S. students have consistently demonstrated poor performance in spatial reasoning in standardized testing (e.g., National Assessment of Educational Progress). One possible reason is students' lack of conceptual understanding of measurement concepts (length, area, volume, capacity). This paper describes different ways that mathematics textbooks…

Fisher, Karin M.; Gallegos, Benjamin; Bousfield, Taylor – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2019

One of the challenges of educating adolescents with autism spectrum disorders is to find activities that are interesting and engaging. Researchers have shown that adolescents with autism often are attracted to technology. Using an exploratory research method, the experiences of three students with autism who participated in after school robotics…

Gao, Yang – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2019

Through the project-based instruction (PBI) method, this paper described the design, implementation, and assessment of a technical communication course for engineering graduate students. The paper first addressed an increasing demand of engineering students with great communication skills through analyzing the existing literature and industry…

White, Erin; Shakibnia, Ariana F. – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2019

This article attempts to address the workforce crisis with implications for economic competitiveness and national defense faced by America and the dichotomy of STEM needs and available employees. Businesses struggle to fill critical skilled roles in STEM occupations and thus suffer sluggish growth. In fact, some estimate up to 2.4 million STEM…

Behmke, Derek; Kerven, David; Lutz, Robert; Paredes, Julia; Pennington, Richard; Brannock, Evelyn; Deiters, Michael; Rose, John; Stevens, Kevin – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

Spatial reasoning is defined as the ability to generate, retain, and manipulate abstract visual images. In chemistry, spatial reasoning skills are typically taught using 2-D paper-based models, 3-D handheld models, and computerized models. These models are designed to aid student learning by integrating information from the macroscopic,…

Lawrimore, Cassie; Surber, Emily A. – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

Students often struggle with the relationship between mathematical graphs and the data they represent. To truly understand types of evolutionary selection, students need to be proficient with several different skills in math, science, and literacy contexts. With math, students must be able to identify variables, design appropriate graphs based on…

Disney, Andria; Eisenreich, Heidi – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

This paper seeks to describe the importance of using the context of a candy shop and how focusing on discourse can deepen place value understanding in the base ten number system. Using the language of pieces (ones), rolls (tens), and boxes (hundreds) helps situate place value in a familiar context for K-2 students. Best practice in mathematics…

An, Tuyin; Nguyen, Ha – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

In a study about pre-service secondary mathematics teachers' (PSMTs) understanding about the nature of theorems in geometry, the researcher noticed that it was challenging for the PSMTs to visualize and draw counterexamples to disprove the given mathematical statements. Meanwhile, the use of the dragging feature of dynamic geometry environments…

Casler-Failing, Shelli L. – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

This paper describes a unit designed to promote the development of narrative writing skills among 5th grade students through the use of LEGO robotics. Over the course of four, two and one-half hour sessions (one day per week for four consecutive weeks), the students learned how to construct and program robots, write and present a proposal to…

Stehr, Eryn Michelle; He, Jia; Nguyen, Ha – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

This paper supports grades 3-5 mathematics teachers and considers how technology in the classroom can be used to support "low threshold, high ceiling" tasks and productive discussion. We present a description of a card-sorting task to support the "5 Practices of Productive Mathematics Discussions" focused on an online task…

Casler-Failing, Shelli L. – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

A mixed methods, action research case study was conducted to investigate the effects of incorporating LEGO robotics into a seventh-grade mathematics curriculum focused on the development of proportional reasoning through the lens of Social Constructivist Theory. This study applied students' prior knowledge of the distance, rate, and time formula…

Dagley, Melissa A.; Gill, Michele; Saitta, Erin; Moore, Brian; Chini, Jacquelyn; Li, Xin – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

An interdisciplinary team of physics, education, math and chemistry faculty developed MATH-GAINS (Growing as Adaptive INstructors) creating an ecosystem where mathematics faculty persistently and sustainably apply active learning strategies in their teaching of calculus courses. As a result of implementation, MATH-GAINS proposed to positively…

St. Clair, Janet – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

The article discusses the integration of cartoons into a finite mathematics college course. However, cartoon integration is appropriate for any educational level STEM course. Students and the author used an online comic strip creator, MakeBeliefsComix.com, to create cartoons that connected concepts to the real world and history. Following Cho,…

Nguyen, Ha; Stehr, Eryn Michelle; Eisenreich, Heidi; An, Tuyin – Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference, 2018

Kay and LeSage (2009) conducted a literature review of research on use of student response systems in university courses (typically Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics courses) and categorized benefits into classroom environment, learning, and assessment. The objectives of the proposed session are to discuss how using Google Forms…
