Science and math integration unit

I chose a culminating activity to use after the students had completed learning about fractions, ratios and percentages in math and in life science learning about the ecosystems and inquiry and observations to solve problems. The activity I chose has students looking at trees within a forest near the school. My rationale for selecting this project is that students in this area do a lot of hunting this time of year and are outside in the wilderness a lot during the month of October. I thought that this lesson would make them more aware of their environment and provide them a different way to look at their surroundings before they went off to the mountains for hunting elk and deer. I believe the students will be very interested in this unit of study and also it will help them to be more observant as they are hunting this next month. I tried to write a unit of study that students in this area would enjoy doing, one that would fit with their lifestyle and have a meaningful positive outcome upon completion.

This is a summary of a culminating unit for science and math. Students will measure off a section of the forest and count quaking aspen trees and lodge pole pine trees within the measured off area. Students will then use the 12 processes of science and math skills to answer questions and complete investigations to solve the science question. The students need to collect data, chart it and analyze it to answer questions using math skills including ratios and percentages. The standards for science included science as an inquiry focusing on identifying a question, investigating and using math in the inquiry. It also looked at the ecosystems and populations in the area of life science. Math standards covered in this unit of study were using mathematics to problem solve focusing on formulating problems from everyday life and

#### Blaise Pascal: Contributions To Math, Christian Philosophy, And Science

...Blaise Pascal Report Blaise Pascal made many contributions to math, Christian philosophy, and science. Blaise Pascal was born on June 19, 1623 in Clermont-Ferrand, France. During his lifetime he worked on conic sections and geometry. Around the 1600’s, Pascal created a early version of the calculator. He is well known for his series of letters defending his faith, and his notes in Pensees. Blaise Pascal was born on June 19, 1623. He was the third child and only son to Etienne and Antoinette Pascal. His father Etienne, was a mathematician and tax collector. After his mother passed away when he was three years old, he grew closer to his two older sisters. Blaise and his family relocated to Paris, France in 1831. His father wanted to give his children an unorthodox curriculum so he taught them at home. Some sources have said that Blaise might have been homeschooled because of a illness. Etienne did not allow his son to learn math until he was 15 so he could focus on the classical subjects. Blaise’s early education focused on learning Latin and Greek. Etienne’s plan to eliminate math from Blaise’s life failed. The idea of math not being allowed made him more interested in the subject. When he was 12 he started working with geometry by himself. He used his own terms and eventually worked...

Students will have to use mathematical skills and reasoning to figure out which of the 16 coins they find on the ground belong to them and to their friend and the dollar amount to which each persons coins add up to. In part two of the performance task, students will again use empathy as they “visit” the school store. Students will have figured out how much money they have to spend in the school store in part one of the performance task. Students will be allowed to buy as many items as they can in the school store with one caveat – they must have one coin left over after their shopping spree. Established Goals: MST Learning Standard #3: Math 2.

#### Perception of College of Arts and Sciences Freshmen Students Towards Math 2 Subject

...Perception of College of Arts and Sciences Freshmen Students Towards Math 2 Subject Introduction Mathematics is an essential subject that is part of the curriculum. Through this, we learn how to count, to solve and to analyze problems involving numbers. The application of Mathematics is in our daily life. Learning Math should not be neglected because it will be our foundation in our future career. Understanding Math in a deeper way is quite difficult, that is why it is not new to us to hear different comments about this subject. It will always depend on how we are going to handle ourselves towards this course. Students are of different traits and personalities while learning. Some students would just go to school to have the feeling of belongingness not even minding the education that they could get. There are also students that are doing great in school and giving the best of them for their parents. As we have notice, almost of the students don’t really have the interest in studying Mathematics. They find it hard, tedious, and boring because it involves lots of equations and functions to solve. It is true, you can never learn Math unless you will have the application on this. It is not just merely counting, solving and analyzing. Math is a broad subject and we cannot learn all this in just 4 years of studying in college. The students should know the significance in learning the basis in Mathematics. To make this interesting we should know the purpose of why we should love...

...communication with a diverse culture of your peers. There are many jobs out there in math and science that will interest you. But most kids study very hard but still struggle with math and science and sometimes feel like giving up. So to give students the encouragements there are many different ways to help them. Mathematics and science is one of the most challenging this student or an adult can say is so confusing and sometimes can be frustrating. When you think about math all you really see is numbers and symbols and more and more numbers. But on the other hand when you think about science you see formulas and symbols and also more number they both favor some of the same things. That’s what makes them both very challenges and wiser. The reason that we need mathematics is to solve problems and to educate others. Probability and statistics for an actuary to analysis research.

The objectives are (a) to find what level of self-efficacy do High school students have and (b) to explore if there is gender difference among high school students in terms of their self-efficacy and academic performance. The data are gathered using survey type questionnaire which is composed of two domains, English efficacy and Math efficacy to find if there is significant relationship between academic performance and their self-efficacy. Data was analyzed using mean and test of difference (t-test). Result showed that students‟s performance on Math subject posed a high significant relationship with their self-efficacy beliefs with statistical interpretation as positive substantial relationship (p=.615**, a=.000). On the other hand, students registered a significant relationship and a moderate relationship (p=.401*; a=.015) on their self-efficacy and academic performance on English subject. The researcher also found out that Filipino science high school...

#### Stereotyping

...powerful tool. Governments and organizational leaders charged with the distribution of these positions and resources often use stereotyping and discrimination as a process of elimination. Therefore, negative stereotyping exists in almost every sphere of participation. It exists in schools, in financial institutions, in nearly every industrial and societal sector. Sometimes, negative stereotyping is less obvious than others are. As demonstrated by the University of Toronto 2010 article, “Stereotyping has a lasting negative impact,” innuendo can yield detriment. In fact, the University of Toronto (2010) explains how one group of women taking a math test were subjected to negative stereotyping. According to the University of Toronto (2010) article, the test monitor told these women this test would prove whether they were smart in math....

With that being said, the lack of these teachers cause a lack in the quality of education that one is receiving. The only way to prevent this is for the teacher shortage in the fields of math and science to be solved immediately, no matter what the cost.

The percentage of women working in STEM has grown exponentially over the last century; however, the stereotype that women are not as good as men at math and science is still being perpetuated through a variety of ways. This stereotype, though it may be inadvertently preserved by parents, teachers, and employers, affects society and women themselves in a number of negative ways. The untrue stereotype that men are more proficient in STEM fields than women leads to parental bias, a decrease in women’s confidence in their ability to understand math and science, and employment disparity and discrimination.

#### Spirituality and Trauma

...the value of spirituality in providing emotional care to survivors of trauma is analyzed. Why is the value of spirituality in emotional care important to me? Conventional wisdom has held to the notion that boys are better at math than girls. Perhaps, this age old belief was responsible for Mattel the company that produced “Teen talk Barbie” in 1992 to create a Barbie doll that had among its stored phrases, one phrase that said, “Math class is tough!”. This phrase was stored with 270 other girl talk phrases such as “I love shopping” and “Will we have enough clothes!”. The result was that Mattel was soundly criticized and quickly changed the doll’s offending phrase a few months later. In spite of Mattel’s effort to correct a message that verbalized an inherent cultural bias, one wonders if the is any accuracy to the stereotype that associate math being difficult with the female gender and whether math is less difficult for males. Bryner (2007) indicated that women are still outnumbered by men in math science and engineering fields. Tachibana (2010) posited that as much as 90 percent of the engineers in the United States are male. Mathematics is considered a gateway such to the hard sciences....
