Problem Solving in Mathematics and Science for K-12 Teachers: last offered Spring 1997. An activity-based approach to problem solving strategies in the context of scientific inquiry designed specifically for in-service K-12 teachers. Curriculum goals, instructional techniques, and assessment strategies will be discussed. This course uses the Kansas Mathematics and Science Curriculum standards as a holistic tool to enhance student problem solving skills. Mathematical concepts covered will include: sense and systems, fucntions, geometry, relationships, probability and statistics. Science concepts will include: energy, matter, patterns of change, stability, models, and interactions among systems. This course is sponsered by the Pittsburg State University College of Arts and Sciences - Science Education Center and can count as an elective toward the Pittsburg State University Masters of Science degree in teaching (Elementary Emphasis: Electives outside the School of Education; Secondary Emphasis: Either as elective or as hours in content field outside of education). This course does not count toward meeting secondary-field concentration in Physics.
