Second Differences: A Mathematical Bridge between Two Projects
Fischer, Joyce; Wayment, Stanley; Johnson, Christopher
PRIMUS, v20 n7 p563-574 2010
Making connections is one of the most important foundations involved in learning mathematics. Two projects are presented in this article: one involving Newton's Second Law of Motion and the other involving the determination of star numbers, a type of figurate number. The two invoke seemingly different modalities for students at different levels of mathematical maturity, and yet they share a deep academic connection. (Contains 6 figures.)
