Physics Union Mathematics Workshop: Teachers and Students Work Together to Create New Approaches to Learning
Physics Union Mathematics (PUM) is a physics/physical science curriculum that links middle and high school physics curricula and builds on the intrinsic mathematical reasoning to develop and strengthen students’ mathematical concepts at the pre-algebra, algebra and algebra 2 levels. PUM curriculum consists of logically connected modules that allow students to build their conceptual understanding of physics concepts, develop relevant mathematical reasoning and simultaneously learn how to think like scientists.
PUM materials help teachers build a learning community in the classroom and help Students learn physics by engaging in practices similar to that of physicists constructing and applying knowledge.
