Many kids - especially girls - don't believe they can succeed in math and science, and test scores reveal that U.S. students lag behind their peers in other countries when it comes to scientific literacy. The problem with the way we think about math, science, and engineering education, begins with a basic problem in the way these subjects are taught. In math, for instance, students tend to do the problems in class or do some for homework, have a test on Friday and go on to the next topic. Never have they connected why they just learned what they did, what they use it for. We need to teach kids that knowledge has a connection.
