Explore Magazine

Explore, the research magazine of Boise State University, is published by the Division of Research and Economic Development with support from the Office of Communications and Marketing.

In This Issue

In today’s competitive world, it’s imperative that we prepare our kids to be independent and critical thinkers who not only know how to learn, but understand why it matters. The research highlighted in this issue of EXPLORE magazine is helping to improve teaching and learning in K-12 classrooms, particularly in the crucial areas of science, technology, engineering and math. Currently, only 40 percent of fourth-graders are proficient in math. By the time they reach eighth grade, that number drops to 33 percent. We’re striving to change that.
