Developing deep mathematical understandings in STEM contexts.


The YuMi Deadly Maths pedagogy encourages deep understanding of powerful mathematics through a focus on sequencing, connections and big ideas. There is a concern that these deep understandings are often lost in an integrated STEM context. Research is showing that the vision for integrated STEM is not being realised and has the potential to undermine in-depth student learning. This presentation will encourage participants to experience, hands-on, some common STEM activities incorporating technology to highlight the potential for deeper mathematical investigations. A variety of technologies and some introductory coding opportunities will be used to engage participants in these investigations. The focus will be on what is required to ensure the role of mathematics in STEM activities is such that it allows for deep mathematical understanding, and to recognise when and how to ensure there is mathematical depth. The session will use TI Nspire but activities can be carried out using other platforms.
