Problems Relating Mathematics and Science in the High School.
Morrow, Richard; Beard, Earl
This document contains various science problems which require a mathematical solution. The problems are arranged under two general areas. The first (algebra I) contains biology, chemistry, and physics problems which require solutions related to linear equations, exponentials, and nonlinear equations. The second (algebra II) contains physics problems which require solutions related to linear equations, quadratic equations, exponential functions, logarithms, nonlinear equations, conic sections (parabola) and conic sections (hyperbola). Each problem includes the mathematics and science content area (and concept) fostered, statement of the problem, and the solution. Among the concept areas included are velocity, Hooke's law, speed of sound, temperature, Ohm's Law, isotopes, molecular weight, heat transfer, population growth, mechanics, half-life, motion, kinematics, conservation of energy, acceleration, carbon-14 dating, radioactivity, sound, pH, electric circuits, and linear expansion.
