Quality in the Classroom: Engagement, STEM and Achievement All in One

Abstract: Picture the United States as a competitive athlete and the rest of the world as the playing field. STEM careers and education will keep us leading in the innovation market—the driver of economic success. We face many barriers to winning this race. Some examples of these challenges include the “fear” of math and science passed from one generation to the next, lack of knowledge about the need and opportunities available in STEM careers, and minorities and women underrepresented in STEM fields. If the United States is to remain a leader in this competitive world, students today must have integrity, be creative problem solvers and learn how to take responsibility for achieving goals. Quality strategies in the classroom bring results to these goals, which, at the same time, increase the exposure to mathematical and scientific ways of thinking.
