Digesting the full scope of the history of mathematics can be daunting. But with the focus in today’s classrooms on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), understanding the fundamentals of the subject has never been more important.
Thankfully, teachers can tap a variety of innovative resources to help make learning STEM more interesting. Lego is entering the field with a series of math lessons, there’s almost no end to the things 3D printers can make, and a science classroom experience that involves satellites is just around the corner.
