Milkweed Seed Dispersal: A Means for Integrating Biology and Physics.
Bisbee, Gregory D.; Kaiser, Cheryl A.
American Biology Teacher, v59 n7 p426-27 Sep 1997
Describes an activity that integrates biology and physics concepts by experimenting with the seed dispersal of common milkweed or similar wind-dispersed seeds. Student teams collect seeds and measure several parameters, review principles of trajectory motion, perform experiments, and graph data. Students examine the ideas of scientific/mathematical models, the scientific research process, and the importance of communication. (PVD)
