These lessons were developed by a math and science teacher to focus on content that is interdisciplinary. In each case, the same model or simulation is used to teach both the math and science content.

Mapping and Coordinate Systems

This lesson uses an Explore Learning Gizmo to explore map coordinates. The lesson was used in Earth Science and Algebra 1. Teachers can sign up for a free trial to use this Gizmo. The Gizmo used is called "City Tour."

Line of Best Fit

In this lesson, students use an Excelet to learn about linear regression, line of best fit, interpolation, and extrapolation by measuring stacks of Oreo® cookies.
This handout contains student directions, notes to the instructor, and a link to the Excelet.
This handout contains a link to the Excelet and directions written for 9th grade Earth Science students.
This is a revised version of the lesson to make the lesson more inquiry based.

Temperature Conversions and Scales

This lesson explores the mathematical relationship between the Kelvin, Celsius, and Farenheit temperature scales using an Excelet. This lesson was used in Chemistry and Algebra 2. Click here for more information on Excelets.
