Teaching Differential Equations based on STEM Education
Ha, Jun-Hong;
  PDF(new window)
STEM Education in the US and Korean STEAM are reviewed. The present STEM education focuses on K-12 and it does not concern STEM education in university. In this paper, we define a STEM education that can be made available in university and we establish a way of teaching and learning differential equations based on the STEM education. The class provides students with a chance to explore the capstone design projects that are developed by seniors and do hands-on activities. We introduce and set a Mobius strip with an instant delivery pathway to solve real problems as a symbol of STEM education.
