Welcome to the Science & Math area!

Science and Math Task Force members meet monthly to address a variety of issues that relate to teaching math and science. They work with MDE staff on curriculum development and were actively involved in shaping the State Model Core Curriculum Standards and Benchmarks for Science. They also provided input into HSPT development for Science. The Task Force's recent activities have focused on applying the Urban Learner Framework introduced by Belinda Williams, studying Brain Based Learning, sharing strategies for success on MEAP and HSP tests, considering professional development standards and best teaching practices as well as looking into OSHA standards and liability and safety issues applicable to science labs. The group will be looking into ways to provide meaningful integration of the math and science curriculum areas.
