Course Description

This course is designed for UTeach NS students. It introduces major topics in the history of sciences and mathematics: the Copernican revolution, alchemy, Darwin's theory of evolution, the rise of non-Euclidean geometries, Einstein's relativity, eugenics, and more. Students will contrast and discuss philosophical perspectives of various scientists and mathematicians, as a way to explore and develop insightful teaching approaches. We will critically analyze myths in science and math. The course fulfills a writing flag: students will write and present lesson plans based on historical research, plus other written assignments. There will be midterm and final exams. The main required readings will be in a Course Packet and online.
