Minory Nammouz’s research and teaching interests are in studying how students learn, and in applying research based teaching methodologies to develop introductory science classes for non-science majors. Dr. Nammouz developed and implemented a series of science classes for pre-service elementary teachers that reinforce the interconnection among varieties of scientific concepts, where students experience several science teaching strategies with emphasis on conceptual understanding.
