Raje, Sonali; Krach, Michael; Kaplan, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

Concepts in mathematics are often universally applicable to other fields. A critical aspect for success in high school or college is the ability to transfer content knowledge from one discipline to another. This is especially true for material learned in the sciences and mathematics. Several studies have suggested that strong mathematical skills…

Hilton, Annette; Hilton, Geoff – Teaching Science, 2016

In many scientific contexts, students need to be able to use mathematical knowledge in order to engage in scientific reasoning and problem-solving, and their understanding of scientific concepts relies heavily on their ability to understand and use mathematics in often new or unfamiliar contexts. Not only do science students need high levels of…

Razzouk, Rabieh; Dyehouse, Melissa; Santone, Adam; Carr, Ronald – Science Teacher, 2014

Teachers typically teach subjects separately, but integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculums that focus on real-world practices are gaining momentum (NAE and NRC 2009). Before release of the "Next Generation of Science Standards" ("NGSS") (NGSS Lead States 2013), 36 states already had a…

Desjardins, Steven G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008

In this paper we describe an interdisciplinary course on dynamics that is appropriate for nonscience majors. This course introduces ideas about mathematical modeling using examples based on pendulums, chemical kinetics, and population dynamics. The unique emphasis for a nonmajors course is on chemical reactions as dynamical systems that do more…

Hill, Bradford – Science Teacher, 2013

Many high school physics courses have deemphasized mathematics, which has changed the nature and role of the inquiry experiments in them. This article lays out an approach built upon an introductory unit, "Patterns in Nature," which aims to engage students in constructing their understanding of physics through contextualizing and…

Sharp, Janet; Lutz, Tracie; LaLonde, Donna E. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

Cultures need to accurately record dates and times for various societal purposes, ranging from knowing when to plant crops to planning travel. In ancient times, the sun and moon were used as measurement devices because of the scientific understanding of the physical world at that time. Ancient timekeepers monitored celestial events and either used…

Bell, ClareValerie; Odom, ArthurLouis – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2013

In three semiguided inquiry lessons on population biology, students use models and simulations to examine population trends and make projections. They are guided to create and evaluate data and to use algebraic and geometric representations to examine biotic and logistic growth models as part of examining human population growth. As they recognize…

Berlin, Donna F., Comp. – 1995

This document is a compilation of lesson plans designed to teach math/science concepts that have appeared in the journal "School Science and Mathematics". The activities combine important mathematics and science fundamentals in a single lesson and have been tested by classroom teachers. The lesson plans include concepts, objectives, rationale,…

Chee, Chia Teck – 1988

This study aimed to identify the main difficulties faced by physics students and then devise teaching units to overcome the difficulties, and to investigate whether there was any improvement in achievement in physics if mathematical skills were being stressed explicitly in physics lessons. The topics chosen for this study were graphs, errors, and…

Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center. – 1991

This resource book was developed to help home economics teachers reinforce academic principles in mathematics; science, and language arts while teaching essential home economics content. Separate sections of the book are written for each academic area. Each section begins with an overview and update of the academic area based on a review of…

Hayes, Donald G.; Dockery, Linda B., Ed. – 1989

Twelve resource units are presented for the teaching of science and mathematics to gifted students in secondary school. The units present an introduction, tips for teachers, objectives, activities, and materials lists. The units include: "Functions, Relations, and Graphs" (Priscilla Watts); "More Wham to the Gram (A Study of the…

Hacyan, Shahen – European Journal of Physics, 2009

According to Poincare, a geometry cannot be an object of experience since any geometrical experiment must be realized with physical objects, such as rulers and light rays, and it is only their properties that can be tested. This position was apparently refuted by general relativity and the successful confirmation of its predictions by astronomical…

Skopp, Joseph – Journal of Chemical Education, 2009

The Freundlich adsorption isotherm is a useful description of adsorption phenomena. It is frequently presented as an empirical equation with little theoretical basis. In fact, a variety of derivations exist. Here a new derivation is presented using the concepts of fractal reaction kinetics. This derivation provides an alternative basis for…

Birk, James P., Ed. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1989

Describes two computer programs for chemistry: (1) "A Microcomputer Simulation of Fractal Electrodeposition" (provides for the study of fractal aggregrates, BASIC 4.0); and (2) "Counters on Grids" (a game to illustrate the distribution of energy). Notes the programs are available from the authors. (MVL)
