Modeling Nuclear Decay: A Point of Integration between Chemistry and Mathematics.
Crippen, Kent J.; Curtright, Robert D.
Journal of Chemical Education, v75 n11 p1434-36 Nov 1998
Describes four activities that use graphing calculators to model nuclear-decay phenomena. Students ultimately develop a notion about the radioactive waste produced by nuclear fission. These activities are in line with national educational standards and allow for the integration of science and mathematics. Contains 13 references. (Author/WRM)
