Center for Science and Math Education

Effective science and mathematics education of the citizenry requires rich and active experiences with the concepts and methods of science and math throughout life. To this end the Center for Science & Mathematics Education seeks to share the resources and expertise of the faculties at Weber State University with the surrounding schools and community. In addition, the Center coordinates 6000 level professional development courses (offered in collaboration with the Jerry and Vickie Moyes College of Education) to teachers . MED 6100S through MED 6500S are especially appropriate for enhancing content, understanding, and pedagogy for teachers of grades K-6. MED 6500S through MED 6900S are designed for teachers of grades 7-12. Teachers may also register for certain 5000 level courses through the content departments.

The mission of the Center for Science and Math Education is to:

  • To provide training and advisement for pre-service secondary education science and mathematics teaching majors.
  • To provide coordination for science and mathematics education at Weber State University, liaison with the WSU Department of Teacher Education, the Utah State Office of Education and the local school districts.
  • To provide in-service training and support for science and mathematics teachers.
  • To provide opportunities and support for K-12 students related to science and mathematics.
