Math and science are often thought of as challenging subjects that can prevent children from being successful in school. However, many aspects of math and science resonate well with students’ hearts and minds. New teaching and learning practices have changed the look of math and science and these novel formats are often unfamiliar to parents, students, and educators. CU Professors Edd Taylor & Valerie Otero will reveal aspects of math and science learning environments that are inviting and empowering and demonstrate how math and science appeal to curiosity and problem-solving instincts. Taylor and Otero will also discuss the rationale for current changes in math and science classrooms (e.g. solving problems in non-traditional ways), as well as the changing roles for parents in this somewhat unfamiliar space.
