STEM math is different from traditional mathematics in several ways.
First, kids are learning more advanced math at younger ages with introductory algebra and geometry introduced in project-based lessons, starting as early as the third grade for some students. Such STEM math projects and problems are interdisciplinary as they incorporate science, technology, and engineering to mathematics.
A past project involved estimating the single-use plastics used in Hong Kong every day.
