Felder-Brent: Teaching and Learning STEM
"Teaching and Learning STEM: A Practical Guide (Jossey-Bass, 2016) presents a trove of practical research-based strategies for designing and teaching courses and assessing students’ learning. The book draws on the authors’ extensive backgrounds and decades of experience in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education and faculty development. Its engaging and well-illustrated descriptions will equip you to implement the strategies in your courses and to deal effectively with problems (including student resistance) that might occur in the implementation. The strategies don’t require revolutionary time-intensive changes in your teaching, but rather a gradual integration of the old and new methods. The result will be continual improvement in your teaching and your students’ learning. "

Steve Jobs and America at Jon Taplin's Home Page
"There is a bad tendency in this country to think our “innovation deficit” lies in what policy makers call STEM (science,technology, engineering and math). But Jobs understands that the magic formula is STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math). It is the basis of what we teach at The innovation Lab and it is the core of the Apple brand. Steve’s obsessive belief in the role of the artist goes way beyond his early fascination with typography. What makes each of his products so thrilling is that they are aesthetically pleasing just to look at, never mind how cool they are to operate."

David Bressoud's Launchings
"One point of agreement between us is that a singular view of high school mathematics as preparation for calculus has created serious problems. This is particularly damaging when combined with the belief that, if at all possible, students must get through calculus while still in high school, and if they cannot get through it, then, at the least, they have to learn its tricks before they get to college.

Endless Algebra—the Deadly Pathway from High School Mathematics to College Mathematics
"I constantly ask myself two questions: (1) Are we really offering our secondary students an appropriate mathematics experience? (2) What can we do to provide students with relevant, coherent mathematical options on the pathway throughout high school and as they move into college? Or to put it another way: (1) Is the “layer cake” of algebra-dominated mathematics that pervades our U.S. secondary schools still relevant? (2) Is calculus the be-all and end-all goal for the preparation of students for a successful transition to college? My answer is, I think not."
