career Task You will be given instructions to perform a common task. No talking/discussion After reading the instructions, write down what task you think you are trying to complete, based on the instructions given. Task Instruction The procedure is actually quite simple. First you arrange things into different groups. Of course, one group may be sufficient depending on how much there is to do. If you have to go somewhere else due to lack of facilities that is the next step, otherwise you are pretty well set. It is important not to overdo things. That is, it is better to do too few things at once than too many. In the short run this may not seem important but complications can easily arise. A mistake can be expensive as well. At first the whole

procedure will seem complicated. Task Instruction (Continued) Soon, however, it will become just another facet of life. It is difficult to foresee any end to the necessity for this task in the immediate future, but then one never can tell. After the procedure is completed one arranges the materials into different groups again. Then they can be put into their appropriate places. Eventually they will be used once more and the whole cycle will then have to be repeated. However, that is part of life. STEM Careers Encouraging STEM Careers Salary Info Minorities in STEM

STEM Careers Women in STEM Supporting women STEM students and researchers is not only an essential part of Americas strategy to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world; it is also important to women themselves. Women in STEM jobs earn 33 percent more than those in non-STEM occupations and experience a smaller wage gap relative to men. And STEM careers offer women the opportunity to engage in some of the most exciting realms of discovery and technological innovation. Increasing opportunities for women in these fields is an important step towards realizing greater economic success and equality for women across the board. 5E Learning Cycle image from clark-math.blogspot.com 5E Learning Cycle ENGAGE: capture students' interest with effective
