A Natural Fusion: Math and Science Across the Curriculum : Northwest Teacher, volume 4 number 1
Articles in this issue of Northwest Teacher focus on integrating math and science across the curriculum. Teachers create learning experiences for students, of all grade levels, that transcend the power of any one of them taught in isolation. With todays national spotlight on improving students reading and math skills, the potential for cross-disciplinary teaching of these subjects may be readily apparent. But science, too often nudged to the hinterlands of the curriculum when state standards and

Inquiry-Based Investigation on the Internet : Sound and the Human Ear
This online exploration of sound energy and the human ear includes an activity where students formulate, justify, and evaluate a number of predictions about sound. The investigation, which is intended for two class periods, or approximately 90 minutes of instructional time, is divided into two parts--Sound Waves and Anatomy of the Human Ear. Although these activities can be conducted separately, they build on each other and connect life science and physical science when conducted sequentially.

Fossil Fuels
How much does the United States depend on fossil fuels? This web page, part of a site on the future of energy, introduces students to fossil fuels as an energy source. Here students read about the uses, benefits, and limitations of fossil fuels. There is also information on how these fuels are distributed geographically and how they affect the U.S. economy through supply and demand. Thought-provoking questions afford students opportunities to reflect on what they've read. Articles about clean co

El Nino vs. La Nina
This site offers images and animations showing global sea surface temperature (SST) and sea surface height (SSH) during El Nino of 1997-1998 and La Nina of 1998-1999. Images show the difference between the normal SST for that time of year and the actual temperature, clearly showing the higher and lower Pacific temperatures associated with the El Nino and La Nina events of 1997-1999 respectively. Thus the annual cycle and climatology have been removed from the data. Animations use Pathfinder and

Don't Crack Humpty
Student groups are provided with a generic car base. The groups then design a device/enclosure that will protect an egg on or in the car as it is rolled down a ramp at increasing slopes. Students will be expected to perform basic mathematical calculations using their data.

Wire Maze
Students will build a wire circuit and pass a paperclip through the maze, trying not to touch the wire. Touching the wire with the paperclip will cause the circuit to close, which will activate the indicator.

What Is Bullying?
In this short video, bullying is defined with facts and stats. Some key elements are power imbalance with intent to harm physically or verbally. This would be a good resource for a teachable moment in the classroom or for a guidance session on reminding students about what bullying is. Content is appropriate for upper elementary. (0:45)

Stand Up Speak Out-Acceptance
This Public Service Announcement was created by a group of Canadians to teach acceptance. The children and teenagers in this video share that we all should be accepted regardless of our looks or religion. The theme is to "Stand Up and Speak Out". It is a brief but good reminder that our differences make us special. Content is appropriate for upper elementary and middle school students. (1:02)

Peripheral Vision Lab
Students practice reading large letters on index cards with their peripheral vision. Then they repeat the experiment while looking through camera lenses, first a lens with a smaller focal length and then a lens with a larger focal length. They then complete a worksheet and explain how the experiment helps them solve the challenge question from lesson 1.

It's Tiggerific!
In Lesson 3, as part of the Research and Revise step students investigate potential energy held within springs (elastic potential energy). Class begins with a video of either spring shoes or bungee jumping. Students then move on into notes and problems as a group. A few questions are given as homework. The Test Your Mettle section concludes lesson includes a dry lab that involves pogo sticks solidifies the concepts of spring potential energy, kinetic energy, and gravitational energy, as well as

Bone Density Math and Logarithm Introduction
Students should have discovered in their reading from Activity 1 the term “logarithm.” It is at this point that students will begin their study of logarithms. Specifically, they will be examining the definition, history, and relationship to exponents. (Specifically, they will be rewriting exponents as logarithms and vice versa, evaluating expressions, solving for a missing piece.) Students will continue their examination of logarithms by studying the properties of logarithms (Multiplication/

Maximum Power Point
Students learn how to find the maximum power point (MPP) of a photovoltaic (PV) panel in order to optimize its efficiency at creating solar power. They also learn about real-world applications and technologies that use this technique, as well as Ohm’s law and the power equation, which govern a PV panel’s ability to produce power.

Energy Perspectives
Students utilize data tables culled from the US DOE Energy Information Agency to create graphs to illustrate what types of energy we use and how we use it. An MS Excel workbook with several spreadsheets of data is provided. Students pick (or the teacher assigns) one of the data tables for the students to create a plot from and interpret the information provided. Each group of students then shares their interpretation and new perspectives on energy resources and use with the rest of the class.
