Product Description

By Masha R. Albrecht, Maurice J. Burke, Wade Ellis, Jr., Dan Kennedy, and Evan M. Maletsky

Throughout history, the need for more sophisticated measurements has led to the discovery of more sophisticated mathematics. This book highlights this important idea in activities that help students explore an array of measurement strategies and techniques. Investigations probe ancient methods for performing such tasks as measuring the speed of ships at sea and estimating the distance of the sun from the earth. Students apply simple formulas to measure complex shapes, explore iterative processes that lead to measurement formulas, and develop an original formula for measuring the size of a tree. They also discover how to use advanced technology to make measurements and mathematical models of complex real-world phenomena. The supplemental CD-ROM features interactive electronic activities, master copies of activity pages for students, and additional readings for teachers.
