7.391 Concept-Centered Teaching (MIT) 7.391 Concept-Centered Teaching (MIT)

Description

Do you like teaching, but find yourself frustrated by how little students seem to learn? Would you like to try teaching, but are nervous about whether you will be any good at it? Are you interested in new research on science education? Research in science education shows that the greatest obstacle to student learning is the failure to identify and confront the misconceptions with which the students enter the class or those that they acquire during their studies. This weekly seminar course focuses on developing the participants' ability to uncover and confront student misconceptions and to foster student understanding and retention of key concepts. Participants read primary literature on science education, uncover basic concepts often overlooked when teaching biology, and lead a small week Do you like teaching, but find yourself frustrated by how little students seem to learn?

Description

Western philosophy and theoretical mathematics were born together, and the cross-fertilization of ideas in the two disciplines was continuously acknowledged throughout antiquity. In this course, we read works of ancient Greek philosophy and mathematics, and investigate the way in which ideas of definition, reason, argument and proof, rationality and irrationality, number, quality and quantity, truth, and even the idea of an idea were shaped by the interplay of philosophic and mathematical inquiry.

Early development Early development

Description

This free course, Early development, looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced and the role gametes in fertility and, when things go wrong, infertility is explained. We then discuss the early development of a new individual, along with some thoughts on women's experience of pregnancy. First published on Thu, 24 Mar 2016 as Early development.

11.125 Exploring K-12 Clasroom Teaching (MIT)

Description

Subject uses K-12 classroom experiences, along with student-centered classroom activities and student-led classes, to explore issues in schools and education. Students in this course spend time each week observing pre-college math and science classes. Topics of study include design and implementation of curriculum, addressing the needs of a diversity of students, standards in math and science, student misconceptions, methods of instruction, the digital divide, teaching through different media, and student assessment.

7.391 Concept-Centered Teaching (MIT)

Description

Do you like teaching, but find yourself frustrated by how little students seem to learn? Would you like to try teaching, but are nervous about whether you will be any good at it? Are you interested in new research on science education? Research in science education shows that the greatest obstacle to student learning is the failure to identify and confront the misconceptions with which the students enter the class or those that they acquire during their studies. This weekly seminar course focuses on developing the participants' ability to uncover and confront student misconceptions and to foster student understanding and retention of key concepts. Participants read primary literature on science education, uncover basic concepts often overlooked when teaching biology, and lead a small week

Subjects

teaching | learning | concept-centered | education | science education | biology | student learning | misconceptions | studies | biology teaching | teaching environment | pre-conceived notions | learning environment | classroom | cooperative learning | group learning | assessment | multiple intelligences

ES.2H3 Ancient Philosophy and Mathematics (MIT)

Description

Western philosophy and theoretical mathematics were born together, and the cross-fertilization of ideas in the two disciplines was continuously acknowledged throughout antiquity. In this course, we read works of ancient Greek philosophy and mathematics, and investigate the way in which ideas of definition, reason, argument and proof, rationality and irrationality, number, quality and quantity, truth, and even the idea of an idea were shaped by the interplay of philosophic and mathematical inquiry.

Subjects

mathematics | geometry | history | philosophy | Greek philosophy | Plato | Euclid | Aristotle | Rene Descartes | Nicomachus | Francis Bacon | number | irrational number | ratio | ethics | logos | logic | ancient knowing | modern knowing | Greek conception of number | idea of number | courage | justice | pursuit of truth | truth as a surd

Early development

Description

This free course looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception and about contraception to the present day we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced and the role gametes in fertility and when things go wrong infertility is explained. We then discuss the early development of a new individual

Subjects

Biology | family | contraception | pregnancies | child development | conception | reproduction | poison | Paul Gilroy | news cloud | chromosomes | The Sound and the Fury | hormones | embryo | Living with poverty | development | Pussy Riot | SK220_1
