Making Connections: Science Experiments for Algebra Using TI Technology
Lyublinskaya, Irina
EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, v2 n3 p144-157 Dec 2006
Using science experiments in life science, chemistry, and physics, helps ground students' understanding of abstract algebra concepts in real-world applications. Hands-on activities connect mathematics with science in a way that is accessible to teachers and students alike. Each activity explores a scientific phenomenon, connecting it to algebra concepts such as quadratic functions and trigonometry. Students understand abstract algebra concepts by experiencing how scientists solve problems and use mathematical models to design experiments. They apply a variety of techniques to verify their experimental results and develop conjectures. These activities: use the Calculator Based Laboratory, CBL2™, with different probes, common science equipment, and basic tools, in addition to calculators. The experiments can be used as hands-on activities or demonstrations.
