Math/Science/Technology Projects for the Technology Teacher. A Professional Monograph.
Maley, Donald L., Ed.
The underlying development behind this monograph grew out of a series of 14 panels (20 inches by 28 inches) illustrating the basic linkages between existing industrial arts/technology education activities and mathematics or science principles or societal and environmental impacts. Specifically, each panel contained a full-color photograph of a student-made model of an important technological development. The remainder of the panel contained formulas or principles of mathematics and science or implications for societal and environmental impacts associated with the technological development pictured on the panel. Each of the 14 panels has been photographed and included in this publication along with a brief description of the particular technological development, a series of mathematics and science concepts, principles, and formulas, or in some cases, a series of social and environmental impact statements relative to the project pictured on the panel. Science and mathematics projects focus on the waterwheel, lateen sail, trebuchet (a medieval artillery invention), block and tackle, camera, incandescent lamp, hydraulic elevator, and the Wright brothers' airplane. Social and environmental impacts focus on the telephone, papermaking machine, automobile, undersea turbine, space shuttle, and the first American hydroelectric plant. (JN)
