Transportation. 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 XP-59A Airacomet (first American jet); (2) canal lock; (3) conestoga wagon; (4) Goddard's liquid fuel rocket; (5) hot air balloon; (6) magnetic levitation train (MAGLEV); (7) metric dragster; (8) operation sail; (9) reaction engine car; and (10) Wright Brothers airplane. Each of the 10 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)
