A 2022 Noyce Scholar and Math 7-12 major, has participated in a project for the development of his teacher knowledge that includes technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge (also known as TPACK). In this project, he created a professional instructional video on the conversion between Radians and Degrees using interactive whiteboards on an iPad and incorporated his emerging TPACK in the creation of the video. Watch his lesson on Youtube.
A 2022 Noyce Scholar and Math 7-12 major, is participating in a research project related to the MaPP (Mathematical Puzzle Programs) Challenge, which is an annual outreach program offered by the Department of Mathematics at Southern for students between 7th and 12th grade. A major goal of this program is to help participants establish a broader understanding of what counts as mathematics by experiencing mathematics as discovery and exploration. Amanda will have opportunities to work with the educational research team in developing the measurement for the impact of the MaPP Challenge in terms of players’ understanding of what counts as mathematics, their interests in mathematics, and their attitudes toward mathematics.
A 2022 Noyce Scholar and physics 7-12 major, is participating in an NSF funded project in which he has been working with faculty in SCSU's Department of Physics, as well as partners from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Lowell Observatory, to construct instrumentation for astronomical imaging. As part of this project, he will also be supported by SCSU Department of Curriculum and Learning faculty to develop related curricular modules for use in high school physics instruction.
