Connecting my Summer Internship to my Curriculum

July 28th, 2016 by Annie Polashock

This next year I am teaching the lowest fourth level Math class offered– Essentials of College Math. It is for students that are seniors who want to go to college but lack foundational skills they need to start in college Math. My job is to bridge that gap.

I plan on having my students participate in the One Health Initiative, like we did at the ASSIST Center. I will have them create a wearable device using the Engineering Design Process. They will collaborate, code, and work with circuits throughout the school year so that they can compete in the One Health Challenge.

I also want them to tour NC State’s facilities to get them more interested in Engineering, Science, and Math.

I like that you are using real-world problems and application for your students! That will help them bridge that gap! I can’t wait to hear how it turns out!

Annie, your students are going to feel so empowered when they receive the opportunity to create their own devices. Also, it’s a great idea for them to visit the campus. I’m excited for them and I’m excited for you. You guys are going to have an awesome year.

I think that they will enjoy creating the wearable device and will like the tour of state.
