Kevin Waterman brings significant expertise in instructional design, professional development, project management, and R&D. He specializes in the design and testing of innovation approaches to enhancing STEM education.
Waterman is a key member of several current EDC STEM initiatives, including: the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded project “Broadening Participation of Elementary School Teachers and Students in Computer Science through STEM Integration and Statewide Collaboration.” In this STEM+C collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), EDC is developing a series of model curriculum units for grades 1-6 that integrate computational thinking into science and mathematics units. He is also the primary author of a middle school cybersecurity curriculum being developed for SAE, and is the mathematics and science subject matter expert in EDC's collaboration with Artists for Humanity on the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded STEAM Power project.
Previously, Waterman was a core writer on the NSF-funded CME Project, a four-year comprehensive high school mathematics program founded in problem-based, student-centered approaches to learning. He served as the editorial manager of the NSF-funded Linear Algebra and Geometry, a curriculum that teachers can use to challenge students who exhaust the mathematics offered by their school or that schools can build into their mathematics programs to provide an alternative to the typical sequence that ends with calculus. He also was a core writer on Developing Mathematical Practice in High School, a teacher professional development course funded by the Massachusetts DESE.
Waterman has led professional development seminars with teachers from the Boston Public Schools and with participants in Focus on Mathematics, an EDC-led partnership of teachers and mathematicians committed to increasing student achievement. He contributed “Mathematics Applied to Curriculum Development: Lessons Learned on the Job” for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics 72nd Yearbook 2010.
Before joining EDC, he was Director of Product Marketing for HighPoint Systems and Principal Systems Engineer for Lotus Development Corp., working on knowledge management, news management, and computer-based training systems.
He received a BA in mathematics from Trinity College and an MAT in mathematics education from Boston University.
