This course introduces teachers to STEM and student-centered learning to create and implement a standards-based curriculum. Teachers are guided to customize classroom instruction so that students develop the skills they need to survive in today's knowledge-based world. This includes learning to apply mathematical principles to everyday life through ideas, tools, and activities that teachers can use to make math interesting and fun for their students. The course helps teachers introduce the concept of student-centered learning in their classrooms. When students clearly understand their learning goals, and are able to work towards them, they are more self-motivated. Teachers are then able to customize and differentiate curriculum for each learner acting more as facilitators, coaches and mentors.

- Identify approaches to integrating STEM in the classroom.
- Review own teaching strategies and areas of growth.
