En résumé

Have you ever wondered how you can apply math and science skills to real life? Do you wish you could go beyond what you've learned in the classroom? This science course will advance your knowledge as we unpack some important scientific thinking skills using real-world examples. By completing this course, you will be better prepared to continue studying math and science at the high school level and beyond.

In this course, a collaboration between The University of Queensland and Brisbane Grammar School, we will cover key scientific concepts related to:

  • Measurement
  • Estimation
  • The validity of evidence
  • The difference between logic and opinion
  • Misconceptions
  • Modeling
  • Prediction
  • Extrapolation

Each concept will be explored through real world examples and problems that will help you visualize how math and science work in your life.

This course is ideal for high school students looking to challenge themselves and further develop an interest in math and science. It is also applicable to high school science teachers looking for additional materials for teaching.

  • When and how to ask important scientific questions
  • To apply scientific thinking to real world scenarios
  • To develop the essential skills for studying math and science at the high school level and beyond

Le programme

MODULE 1: Data and Measurement
Meet the course team and an introduction to the course content and navigation. We look at how speed is calculated using a LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging).

MODULE 2: Estimation and Measurement
We investigate the different ways in which we might perform an estimation and then use estimation to solve a variety of problems.

MODULE 3: Validity of Evidence
We explore the difference between quantitative and qualitative evidence and develop our understanding of validity as it relates to evidence.

MODULE 4: Evidence and Opinion
Learn the important difference between evidence and opinion, and test that understanding by conducting an experiment.

MODULE 5: Misconceptions
Through a series of investigations and experiments we look at how misconceptions are formed and how to construct a better understanding of the facts surrounding a common misconception.

MODULE 6: Modelling
We use data from a number of Olympic and World records to develop models and feature a graphing tool to better understand data modelling.

MODULE 7: Prediction and Extrapolation
We continue to use Olympic and World records to move beyond modelling in order to extrapolate information and make predictions.

MODULE 8: Synthesis and Application
Finally, we synthesise the concepts covered in all 7 modules to perform an experiment related to the calculation of gravity.

La plateforme

EdX est une plateforme d'apprentissage en ligne (dite FLOT ou MOOC). Elle héberge et met gratuitement à disposition des cours en ligne de niveau universitaire à travers le monde entier. Elle mène également des recherches sur l'apprentissage en ligne et la façon dont les utilisateurs utilisent celle-ci. Elle est à but non lucratif et la plateforme utilise un logiciel open source.

EdX a été fondée par le Massachusetts Institute of Technology et par l'université Harvard en mai 2012. En 2014, environ 50 écoles, associations et organisations internationales offrent ou projettent d'offrir des cours sur EdX. En juillet 2014, elle avait plus de 2,5 millions d'utilisateurs suivant plus de 200 cours en ligne.

Les deux universités américaines qui financent la plateforme ont investi 60 millions USD dans son développement. La plateforme France Université Numérique utilise la technologie openedX, supportée par Google.
