A Curriculum Guide to Applications of Science to Technology for Able Learners.
VanTassel-Baska, Joyce, Ed.; And Others
This curriculum guide was developed with the intention of providing an enrichment option for gifted and talented learners who are interested in pursuing current issues and topics in the fields of mathematics and science. The scope of the guide is meant to encompass a year's study of a set of topics which apply mathematics to science and technology. The units in the guide deal with: (1) energy; (2) genetics; (3) ecology; (4) space travel; (5) electronics; and (6) conservation. Learning objectives are stated at the beginning of each unit, along with an explanation of the focus of that unit. Many of the activities and problems included in the units are cross-referenced with a list of recommended materials. (TW)
