OVERVIEW In Astronomy, students learn about the solar system and their relationship to it from a mathematical perspective. They investigate the Sun-Moon-Earth system and the characteristics, sizes, and distances of planets in the solar system. They construct a small refracting telescope and learn how it functions. They explore gravity and orbits, distinguish between weight and mass, and relate the kinetic energy equation to crater impacts. STUDENT OBJECTIVES
In this MATH Expedition, students analyze data concerning population growth and available resources for a fictional city. They create and graph linear and exponential functions from the data to determine trends.
How do population growth, employment growth, and resource availability affect people’s decisions in relocating to an urban setting?
OVERVIEW In BioEngineering, students explore topics related to kinesiology and sports performance. They cover mathematical concepts including measuring and classifying angles, absolute values, positive and negative rational numbers, data collection, and simple algebra. Students perform flexibility tests, take digital images of the tests, and use the computer to analyze their flexibility. STUDENT OBJECTIVES
In the Building with Patterns MATH Expedition, students examine patterns used to build and design tetrahedron and box kites. The patterns include both physical and economic models that are associated with building both styles of kites. Students build a base model and then expand the model to more complex arrangements.
How can functions help investors make wise decisions?
In the Built to Last MATH Expedition, students work as chief engineers of a high-rise construction project that is having to make adjustments to the project due to earthquake concerns.
What ways can math be used to predict how best to maintain safety while minimizing costs in building construction?
