Communications. Technology Education-Mathematics and Science Interface Project.
Smith, Kenneth L., Ed.
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 include: (1) Bell's liquid telephone; (2) camera; (3) crystal radio; (4) dynamic microphone; (5) early radio; (6) early television; (7) Edison's phonograph; (8) fiber optics; (9) holography; (10) lighthouse; (11) periscope; (12) phonograph; (13) photo enlarger; (14) pinhole camera; (15) printing press; (16) problem solving; (17) radar; (18) radio systems; (19) satellite systems; (20) speaker construction; (21) sundial; (22) telegraph; (23) telephone operation; (24) telescope; and (25) television camera. Each of the 25 technology topic entries includes the title, 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)
