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, 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.

Features

- Classic science experiments include guided inquiry-based learning experiences to aid in conceptual learning.
- Graphing calculator technology integrated throughout.
- Exercises have been field-tested for accuracy and usability.
- A separate Solutions Manual is available online at the Allyn & Bacon C&I Supersite. This online manual offers actual data sets collected from real classrooms, teaching suggestions for preparing the lessons, developing a grading scheme and general background knowledge, and solutions worked out for all problems.
- An end-of-text Glossary defines all key terms.
- Students are encouraged to expand their content base, construct new knowledge, and develop a new understanding of how mathematics is used to communicate in science.
- Science teachers will find the mathematics readable and understandable and math teachers will find the traditional science labs enhanced with relevant mathematics. Students will finally be able to see how math and science work together!
