Summary: This valuable activities-based text offering integrated experimental exercises appropriate for preservice mathematics and science teachers, and also serves as a practical resource for in-service graduate students desiring knowledge on how to integrate mathematics and science with technology.
Integrating Mathematics, Science, and Technology explores a broad range of sciences: physics, earth science, chemistry and biology. Basic mathematics skills in algebra ...show more, statistics, and geometry are expanded by the use of classroom-appropriate technology such as graphing calculators, handheld data collection devices, and simple analytical instrumentation.
The lessons presented in this experimental guidebook have all been field-tested. They work! Set-up time is minimal, chemicals used are mostly household available, and waste disposal is not a problem. Most chapters begin with a historical approach, laying the foundation in both mathematics and science. Students are guided through one or more experimental exercises per concept. Interpretations of the data and conclusions, along with additioinal practice problems for the student.
