Historically MSUM was established as a normal school and is still regarded as a teacher education college. In fact, MSUM has a well regarded teacher education program. The physics department is involved in pre-service and in-service teacher education. Due to state requirements for teacher certification, students interested in teaching physics have a daunting schedule. We have been active trying to find alternative pathways for certification as well as working to streamline course requirements. We do have a very active role in providing physical science content (and pedagogy) to elementary education majors.
SCIMATH supports the teaching of STEM in the state of Minnesota through conferences, connections and resources.
Frameworks for MN Math and Science Standards
