This site is being created by Megan Raby, assistant professor of History at the University of Texas at Austin, and students in the Spring 2018 Perspectives on Science and Math course (HIS 329U), with the assistance of UTeach Senior Software Developer Michelle Lowry. Prof. Raby has taught Perspectives since 2014. She began creating this site as a way to share resources for students researching projects in this course, as well as a way to showcase student-generated content. The resources on this site should be helpful not just to current UTeach students enrolled in Perspectives, but also to any teacher interested in integrating historical perspectives into STEM teaching. This site provides an introduction to the pedagogical rationale for incorporating history in the science and math classroom, a launching pad for exploring topics and themes in the history of science and math, and a resource guide for successfully implementing history in a STEM lesson plan.
This site is a work in progress. Feedback and suggestions for resources to add are welcome! Please contact Prof. Raby if you have ideas to share.
