Siegel, Lauren M.; Dickinson, Gail; Hooper, Eric J.; Daniels, Mark
Mathematics Teacher, v101 n7 p490-497 Mar 2008
This article describes preparation and delivery of high school mathematics lessons that integrate mathematics and astronomy through The Geometer's Sketchpad models, traditional proof, and inquiry-based activities. The lessons were created by a University of Texas UTeach preservice teacher as part of a project-based field experience in which high school students construct a working Dobsonian telescope. (Contains 9 figures.)
