Iowa Developed Energy Activity Sampler (IDEAS), Grades 7-12: Mathematics.
Simonis, Doris G.
Described is the Mathematics component of the Iowa Developed Energy Activity Sampler (IDEAS), a multidisciplinary energy education program designed for infusion into the curriculum of grades 7-12. Also included in the program are activity sets for Home Economics (SE 034 678), Industrial Arts (SE 034 679), Language Arts (SE 034 680), Science (SE 034 682), and Social Studies (SE 034 683). Contained in this manual are the 22 student-centered activities from the complete IDEAS curriculum that relate to secondary mathematics. Lesson plans include background information as well as worksheets, diagrams, and equations to aid in computation. Activities are arranged under six concepts: (1) Energy is basic; (2) Energy usefulness is limited; (3) The environment is affected by energy exchanges; (4) Energy choices affect society; (5) Conservation; and (6) The future is ours to shape and share. Among the topics addressed are energy units and measurement, personal energy expenditures, fuel supply and demand, exponential growth, and energy consumption in agriculture and manufacturing.
