Problem and standards-based learning: curriculum to enhance middle school algebra
The research question addressed in this capstone was, how can I supplement 8th grade math curriculum with lessons that are personally relevant to my students? The central focus was the development of lessons that would not only engage students, but promote higher-order thinking and be based on the standards for 8th grade mathematics in Minnesota. The lessons developed are based on research of project-based learning, standards-based instruction, and the revised Bloom's Taxonomy. Project-based learning provided the basic set-up of the lessons standards-based instruction provided the framework of skills that the lessons were built upon and the revised Bloom's Taxonomy provided a method to promote a deep level of thought amongst students. The lessons are designed to be used in conjunction with district or state issued curriculum
