Dear BC Science and Mathematics Teachers, Teachers-to be, Students, and Parents:
We hope you have had a fantasic summer and you were able to recharge your batteries before this new year. On behalf of the MSTLTT Team I would like to wish you a very productive, successful and intellectually fulfilling new academic year. We hope it will bring you and your students lots of new exciting opportunities to have fun while studying and teaching science and mathematics. Here at UBC, we have been working very hard during the summer working on our FREE resource for mathematics and science teaching: Mathematics and Science Teaching and Learning through Technology (MSTLTT). We have more than 900 conceptual questions with detailed explanations and extended resources in our database now! The MSTLTT resource has been used extensively in our Teacher Education Program and our Science and Mathematics Teacher-Candidates contributed to it as well. This summer, we designed many more conceptual questions that we hope you will be able to use with your students (physics, mathematics, chemistry). The questions are all in PowerPoint format and they have detailed explanations and suggestions for further study. We would be delighted if these materials were useful to you and your students. We also extended our resource to add interesting computer simulations and YouTube links. We hope our resource will be useful to physics teachers and students all over the province and beyond. If you have any suggestions about it or have ideas for improvements, please let us know. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
