Subject: Re: Integrating math and biology
Dear Steve, I searched on the Web and found this PDF file Connecting Algebra and Biology Using Graphing Calculators: http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Instruction/Math/algbiol.pdf To quote their introduction: "The Connecting Algebra and Biology Using Graphing Calculators resource document is intended to assist classroom teachers of algebra and biology in implementing the Virginia Standards of Learning for mathematics and science. This resource document includes a sampling of activities that have been correlated to the Standards of Learning for Algebra I, Algebra II, and Biology. Where appropriate, activities have also been correlated to Standards of Learning for other grade levels or courses." I also found this: NCTM San Diego Presentation Summary: http://mathforum.org/mathed/nctm96/interdisc/horak.html which looked very promising but I couldn't find any page that actually talked about Virginia M. Horak's work! As I looked I found that she works or possibly worked at the University of Arizona but I could not find email or any Web pages specifically for her. The UA site is here: http://www.arizona.edu/ and perhaps you could write their Webmaster? Maybe another T2T Associate has heard of her work or perhaps they will have some other ideas for you. I hope that this is somewhat helpful. -Suzanne A., for the T2T service
