ABSTRACT

This paper aims to put forth the importance of mathematics in STEM education and to put a point of view for mathematics instruction. The importance of mathematics for other STEM disciplines has been described after the STEM education; its components and its importance for 20th century have been discussed. In conclusion, mathematical modeling, problem- and project-based learning should be used during instruction to help our students have a creative thinking problem solving skills and teachers should have a wide perspective and skill to be able to integrate all these disciplines in their classrooms.
