Covers methods for the development of a deep understanding of topics in mathematics and physics through the use of classroom activities and digital resources, with guest lectures on real-world applications of mathematics and physics.

Læringsutbytte

After completing this subject, students will:
  • have knowledge of and experience with a range of mathematical and scientific processes of thought that are of essential importance in developing a deep understanding of topics in mathematics and science.
  • be able to analyse and develop classroom and digital activities that support the development of mathematical and scientific methods of thought by others.
  • gain experience in written and oral methods of communication of topics in mathematics and science, including critiquing and offering feedback to others.
  • gain knowledge of a wide range of real-world applications of mathematics and physics, thereby being able to make representations on the important role that mathematics and science plays within society.

Innhold

This course covers methods for supporting the development of critical thinking skills and problem solving techniques that are necessary to obtain a deep understanding of concepts in mathematics and physics. Emphasis is placed on gaining experience in the communication and dissemination of ideas and arguments in mathematics and physics, in both oral and written forms.
The course consists of three components:
  1. The development and use of exciting and joyful classroom activities to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills in mathematics and physics, through a process of inquisitive exploration, experimentation, and discovery.
  2. The development and use of digital resources in GeoGebra and Desmos to help students gain a deeper understanding of concepts in mathematics and physics.
  3. A series of guest lectures by invited experts about real-world applications of mathematics and physics that are of current and future importance to society.
