The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. The inclusion of appropriate history and philosophy of science and mathematics courses in science and mathematics teacher-education programmes. The Australian Government regards high-quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education as critically important for our current and future productivity, as well as for informed personal decision making and effective community, national and global citizenship.
A science education game developed by a College of Education faculty member wins the 2018 International Serious Play Award. A choice of 24 science majors and minors, spanning physics to plant sciences, biochemistry to geographical science, and psychology to mathematics, will provide you with a rich repertoire of study options. Taken together with your education studies, you can look forward to a highly rewarding career with two teaching specialisations.
If you’re in high school or college, you know by now that exams and tests come with the territory of being a student. Some exams are used to ensure that students have the proper knowledge needed to graduate or enroll in a particular class or program, while other tests are used to measure students’ skill levels in subjects like reading, writing, and math.
The gap in average mathematics scores between white and black students was 6 points at the beginning of kindergarten and 13 points in the spring of third grade; the science score gap was 5 points at the beginning of first grade and 9 points by the spring of third grade. The major in Computer Science enables a student to develop an understanding of the theory and practice of computing within the context of a liberal arts and sciences education. In addition to computer programming, majors in computer science study computer languages, logic, data structures, and applications of computing.
High school students took most of these courses (85%). Math courses made up nearly 23% of the courses taken, and science courses made up 14%. Learning Theories: This module introduces a range of learning theories from education, psychology, machine learning and neuroscience that together generate a new ‘science of learning’ and will concentrate closely on the work of Lev Semenovich Vygotsky, which is among the most influential in current educational research and practice.
