Winning with Math & Science

Education   Environment   Empowerment

Eastman is guided by the trust between the company, employees, shareholders, and the broader community it touches with the goal of making a difference in a material way to all these entities. We recognize the value that business and industry has on education. Eastman MathElites™️ and SciencElites™️ strengthen the education community by providing in depth study of math and science foundational concepts.

Goals of both programs – to incorporate pedagogy, math content, and best teaching practices that matches state curriculum standards. Teachers engage in hands-on activities and presentation of their work in the daily sessions. This allows them to experience learning in a way that we would like to see them teaching their own students. Participants engage in a variety of investigations in the following areas: mathematical processes, numbers and operations, algebra, geometry and measurement, and data analysis, probability and statistics, with topics for investigations driven by the participants, student data, and local and state math standards.

In addition to learning math content, participants explore questions and ideas about their students’ learning, their teaching, and their curricular approaches. Building teacher networks is an additional bonus of this program.
