STEAM 7/8 A: #Self-Care: Geometric Patterns Meet the Science of Life
- Grade Level(s): 7,8
- Duration: 8 Weeks
Adopt the mindset of an engineer, scientist, and mathematician while studying rigid transformations, angles, similarity, scale, slope, and various organ systems’ characteristics.
In this course, you will discover the science and math that lurks in everyday life. We will learn how to harness what we discover to improve our world and the world of those around us. This class’s focus will be learning how to think creatively as an engineer, scientist, and mathematician as we answer these driving questions: How can we, as individuals, inspire others in our communities by creating art using the patterns found in nature? What can we do to benefit the health of ourselves and other organisms? As we explore our world to answer these two questions, we will be learning about rigid transformations, angles, scale, similarity, and slope and the characteristics and classification of life, cells, and organ systems.
