The curriculum materials contained in this document were developed through a cooperative effort by educators in the state of Maryland. It was a curriculum project aimed at the meaningful integration of mathematics and science. It is suggested that these materials be used in two significant ways. First, this document can serve as an instructional materials resource collection. An extensive variety of technology topics are covered, with each topic including detailed information sheets identifying the mathematical and scientific principles that could be studied in a technology education activity. Secondly, this document can serve as a materials resource guide. This is accomplished by providing a format and process for the creation of similar classroom instruction materials. Topics included in this document are: (1) abrasive technology; (2) architectural materials under compression load; (3) bending wood; (4) bridge construction; (5) bridge truss; (6) charpy impact testing; (7) concrete strength; (8) copper electroplating; (9) deck construction; (10) dimensional change in wood; (11) hammer; (12) hardening of steel; (13) heat treating metals; (14) house construction; (15) joining with silver solder; (16) miter joints; (17) nailing; (18) roof framing; (19) screwdriver; (20) steel; (21) trusses; and (22) wall insulation and wood burning stoves. Each of the 22 technology topic entries includes the title, resource information, descriptions of the transparencies, science concepts, mathematical concepts, and transparency masters graphically illustrating the topic. A list of additional documents available from the Division of Vocational-Technical Education, Maryland Department of Education is provided. (KR)
