A source to relate math with science is the Cambridge Physics Outlet.
Their number is 1-800-932-Labs. I have reviewed a car and ramp with photo-
timers with my students. Students were able to relate calculations with
velocity and acceleration of a car traveling down an incline. Different
weights were also used to examine the effect of weights on the car's velocity.
The company provides lesson plans, scoring rubrics, and a teacher's guide.
I strongly recommend purchasing the teacher's guide since the lessons are
contained within. The students truly enjoyed integrating the math with
science and technology. The company has many other programs as well
that integrates math with science. The lesson guides are also designed for
students with different levels of ability. Separate lessons plans are
provided grades 5-9, grades 8-12, and grades 10-college. Several
additional programs available from the company are: simple machines,
harmonic motion, the elements of the periodic table, sound and music,
and electric motors.
