Mathematics 8, Environmental Education Guide.
Project I-C-E, Green Bay, WI.
This eighth grade mathematics guide is one of a series of guides, K-12, that were developed by teachers to help introduce environmental education into the total curriculum. The guides are supplementary in design, containing a series of episodes (minilessons) that reinforce the relationships between ecology and mathematics. It is the teacher's decision when the episodes may best be integrated into the existing classroom curriculum. The episodes are built around 12 major environmental concepts that form a framework for each grade or subject area, as well as for the entire K-12 program. Although the same concepts are used throughout the K-12 program, emphasis is placed on different aspects of each concept at different grade levels or subject levels. This guide focuses on aspects such as radius, geometry, and average and percent. The 12 concepts are covered in one of the episodes contained in the guide. Further, each episode offers subject area integration, subject area activities, interdisciplinary activities, cognitive and affective behavioral objectives, and suggested references and resource materials useful to teachers and students.
