Science education is evolving once again-as it has since the emergence of public schools in the United States-to a focus on mastering basic concepts and skills that can be used in new situations. Yet, in order to truly accomplish this, contexts need to be established first. Concepts and process skills are desirable end points. But if real learning is to occur, concepts and skills cannot be approached directly and used as organizers for courses and instruction. Without the proper background, students do not understand and are rarely able to use the information and skills that are taught. This explains why science lacks popularity and why most students stop their study of science as soon as they are permitted to do so. Little is gained by simply requiring more for a longer period of time.
To assist students to make informed choices about their study, the Sydney School of Education and Social Work has identified inherent requirements for coursework-award courses in Secondary Education. In order to successfully complete such a course, students must possess these qualities and skills (PDF). Fully certified mathematics and science teachers were less prevalent in high-minority and high-poverty schools when compared with schools with students from higher-income families. For example, in 2011, 88% of mathematics teachers in high-poverty schools were fully certified, compared with 95% of those in low-poverty schools.
A number of our graduates have taken up appointments in teaching- related areas or areas outside teaching, including the IT software industry, industrial training, specialistÂ science-basedÂ sales sectors and environmental science. Graduates of this programme have also undertaken further study leading to postgraduate qualifications at Graduate Diploma, Masters and PhD levels.
The United States has developed as a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers, and innovators. In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and mathâ€”subjects collectively known as STEM.
7. Conduct projects for high school mathematics and science gifted students. The University’s Special Mathematics Examination is not applicable to this programme. We welcome applications from mature students. Mature applicants must apply through the Central Applications Office (CAO) by 1 February. The whole area of public understanding of research (its content, methodology, and implications) has been studied most thoroughly in the United States, starting with a conference at the Science Museum of Minnesota, and leading to a publication by Chittenden et al. (2004), which deals comprehensively with a wide range of aspects.
