M2 ED – A Support System

- “Non-content” certified elementary and secondary school mathematics teachers
- Mathematics, science and technology (STEM) teachers desiring to be professionally developed.
- STEM teachers interested in National Board Certification.

M2 ED – A Portal

- Access to best practices for teaching STEM
- Access to Professional Development for STEM
- Access to lesson plans and classroom activities based on research

M2 ED – Leading Research

- How people learn
- How to teach mathematics
- How to integrate reading into the process

M2 ED – A Work of Progress, In Progress

- Phase I – Partnerships formed and staff focused to develop the infrastructure of the portal – video, voice, data channels.
- Phase II – Collecting and Organizing researched modules and resources for evaluation and eventual selection for use.
- Phase III – Enhancement, Development, and Evaluation.

M2 ED – Let’s Explore!

M2 ED – STEM Modules

Left Frame – the Index

- Return to M2ED
- Return to STEM Modules
- The Conscious Problem Solver – Dartmouth
- M-DCPS Developed Modules
- National and Local STEM Resources
- Form for Collaboration Submission
- Experimental Problem Solver Diagnostic

M2 ED – Your Turn to Try

- Explore Dartmouths Problem Solving Process
- The elements
- The practice – Design a pencil
- Define the Problem – What is a pencil?
- Redefined/Solutions:
- body and lead
- and shape and length
- What are the constraints?
- New Problems – What is the body? What is Lead? What is the Shape? What is the length?
- Etc…

M2 ED – Engineering/Competition Projects – Your Turn

Review and Prepare Presentation on each:

- Bottle Rockets
- Bridge
- Free Design
- Mousetrap Car
- Rubber Band Car
- Sand Structure

M2 ED – Problem Solving and Bloom’s Taxonomy

- Raising awareness of degrees of sophistication
- Teachers first!
- Try it
- Collaborate on it
