Overview

How do we enable young people to imagine themselves as the next generation of STEM professionals? How do we do this in a way that engages the desire to learn and explore? In Australia, there is increasing concern at the declining participation in advanced-level school mathematics and physical sciences; fewer students electing to study STEM programs at university; and, evidence of declining performance of Australian students on international comparative tests in mathematics and science. This timely book highlights the need to reconceptualize Maths and Science Teacher Education Programs (ReMSTEP) in order to revitalize maths and science teaching approaches within primary and secondary schools. This substantively researched text, based on ReMSTEP's extensive trialling and exhaustive consultation with researchers and practitioners alike, enriches the debate on the educational relevance of maths and science, and is a crucial reference for educational decision-makers, lecturers and pre-service teachers, and school leaders.
