Event Description

Next Generation Science Standards, expected out next year, are based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education released in 2011 by the National Research Council (NRC). The Framework describes the major practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas that all students should be familiar with by the end of high school. Starting September 11, 2012 and continuing through December, NSTA is presenting eight web seminars on the practices described in the Framework. This web seminar will focus on Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking. Register today!

Teachers will learn more about:

  • the importance of mathematics and computation as fundamental tools for representing physical variables and their relationships;
  • how tools are used for a range of tasks, including constructing simulations; statistically analyzing data; and recognizing, expressing, and applying quantitative relationships;
  • mathematical and computational approaches that enable scientists and engineers to predict the behavior of systems and test the validity of such predictions; and
  • why statistical methods are frequently used to identify significant patterns and establish correlational relationships.
