STEM Themes and Projects
Each unit of Redbird Mathematics
is embedded in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) theme.
Select units, highlighted red, conclude with a digital project-based learning experience focused on the unit’s theme.
The instructional model for Redbird Mathematics' digital STEM projects consists of 4 parts:
1. Introduction to the topic to engage students with videos providing background information and career connections.
2. Math Tasks where students explore mathematical constraints for the problem and showcase their math proficiency.
3. Solution Creation using design, coding, or simulation tools to solve the STEM problem.
4. Concluding Activities including challenges, extensions, and feedback about the project.
