Teaching and Learning Mathematics through Hurricane Tracking

Maria Fernandez, Robert Schoen 

May 2008, Volume 13, Issue 9, Page 500

Abstract:
Hurricane-based mathematics tasks involving cooperative learning that were found to help students enhance their understanding of patterns, graphs, and rates of change. The tasks created for this activity have been used by both middle and high school teachers and students. Interdisciplinary themes are prominent as students need a working knowledge of longitude and latitude. Activity sheets, answers, and student work included.
