Math and Integrated STEM: It’s More than Counting, Measuring and Histograms.
Ever thought that the M in STEM was silent? And what does that mean for STEM learning for students and teachers? Integrated STEM provides a framework to create and engage in learning that values each of the disciplines, including mathematics, and also is beneficial for students. Learn about Integrated STEM and activities which were developed collaboratively across the STEM field to engage students in mathematics in concert with science, technology, and engineering.
