Master of Engineering and Mathematics

Avenues: The World School - Shenzhen, Guangdong, CN - Full time

THE AVENUES MASTERY ACADEMY

The Avenues Mastery Academy is a specialized high school program at Avenues: The World School designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge, and social network needed to become the leading inventors and innovators of the future. Students work alongside world-class faculty and trailblazing practitioners to reverse engineer, reinvent, and redesign leading technologies, from smartphones to 3D printers. Inspired by these mentors, Academy students think the thoughts and practice the practices of history’s great changemakers in order to become the changemakers of tomorrow.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Avenues Mastery Academy combines the best of in-person mentorship with the transformative power of a global peer group and world-class teachers. The Academy experience is divided into three year-long themes that embody the paradigms, tensions, and values at the heart of innovation and making: Creation (Grade 10), Innovation (Grade 11), and Foresight (Grade 12). Each unit of study thoughtfully matches the construction of an invention (during the Studio block) with carefully selected texts (during the Great Works block).

As a Master of Engineering and Mathematics you will help talented students develop their mathematical skills and apply them to the inventions they build.

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

  • Teach and support the development and iteration of a highly engaging, interdisciplinary curriculum that combines scaffolded math problems and engineering mathematics.
  • Enable each student to understand the thinking strategies and techniques of mathematics.
  • Collaborate closely in a startup team focused on students’ learning and well-being. This is a role with many hats that requires adaptability.
  • Build a warm, supportive, respectful learning atmosphere.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

You bring all or most of the following:

  • A love of mathematics and its application to the complexities of engineering and invention.
  • Strong background in engineering mathematics and supporting others in its application.
  • Intellectual curiosity and humility to reflect on and continually grow in your practice.
  • Highly effective collaborator, eager to listen deeply, contribute in a multi-cultural team, and achieve goals together.
