Mathematics in a STEM Context
Principles and Standards for School Mathematics emphasizes the
importance of students being able to recognize and apply mathematics
in other subject areas and disciplines as well as to daily life.
Fostering development in the integrated fields of science, technology,
engineer- ing, and mathematics, or STEM, â??is a priority, not only
because we need todayâ??s students to become tomorrowâ??s leaders in
innovation and help our economy, but also because we need to increase
STEM interest and skills overall for everybodyâ?? (eSchool News 2009). As
a key component of their STEM experiences, students must â??develop a
depth of understanding and ability to apply mathematics to novel
situations, as college students and employees regularly doâ?? (Common Core
State Standards 2010).
The Editorial Panel of MTMS invites you to share your ideas on pursuing
the goal of providing STEM experiences for middle school students.
Articles should address the philosophy, research, or practice of
effective mathematics teaching as an integrated component of STEM.
Authors are encouraged to consider the following questions:
â?¢ What engineering, science, or technology contexts are useful for
creating intellectual need in students to learn certain mathematical
concepts? How can those contexts be incorporated in mathematics
â?¢ How can mathematics standards be effectively
addressed in other STEM-related classrooms, for example, in a school
science laboratory or a summer engineering camp?
â?¢ Describe successful examples of teaching math as an integrated
component of STEM. What works? In what areas did you struggle? How can
an effective collaboration among multidisciplinary team members be
â?¢ Estimation, observation, and communication are shared in the
practices of science and mathematics (AAAS 2009). How are mathematical
ways of thinking related to the scientific method and the engineering
design process? What instructional strategies are most success- ful in
fostering these ways of thinking among students?
â?¢ Beyond graphing calculators, how can other tech-
nologiesâ??modeling tools, programming languages, simulations, digital
videos, or social networksâ??be implemented to support student decision
making, re- flection, reasoning, problem solving, and assessment?
The manuscript should be no more than 2500 words. Include figures and
photographs at the end. To submit manuscripts, access
