The Algebra of the Arches
Buerman, Margaret
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v12 n7 p360-365 Mar 2007
Finding real-world examples for middle school algebra classes can be difficult but not impossible. As we strive to accomplish teaching our students how to solve and graph equations, we neglect to teach the big ideas of algebra. One of those big ideas is functions. This article gives three examples of functions that are found in Arches National Park, Utah.
