The pages include lesson plans, journals, pictures, movies, and results, as well as standards addressed and links to related Web sites. Examples of math used in projects include measuring and calculating (making working kites; finding the circumference of an orange, weighing the orange with and without the peel, then finding the edible percentage of the orange); probability in math (die-tossing and other puzzles) and music (Mozart's Musical Dice); logic (toothpick puzzles, Geoboard Rectangles); and many more. http://www.levering.k12.pa.us/WWW/classrooms/projects.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problem of the Week http://mathforum.org/geopow/ Internet Resources http://mathforum.org/~steve/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
