Ohio University: Applying Elementary Math to Real World Issues

Ohio University will undertake a collaborative research with public schools that will focus on making elementary mathematics meaningful and applicable inside and outside of the classroom by connecting math to real-world topics, including current events and societal issues that are relevant to student's lives. “I am just so excited to be able to do this important work in close collaboration with local experts – the teachers in our public schools,” Dr Matt Felton-Koestler, Associate Professor in the Department of Teacher Education of Patton College of Education said. He is associating with Dr. Courtney Koestler, Director of the OHIO Center of Equity in Mathematics and Science. The project aims to develop a set of lessons/tasks with rich records of practice (supporting documents, such as vignettes and/or videos, examples of student work, and teacher notes) and to study effective design and teaching practices that go into creating and implementing these tasks.
