Mathematics

NASA Connect

Link your students to examples of how mathematics and science are used everyday by NASA aeronautical engineers and scientists. Programs feature a live call-in students segment. Each program includes a lesson, a classroom experiment, and a web-based online interactive component which support national math and science standards.

Math and Science Gumbo

Math and Science Gumbo takes the unique approach of using food and cooking to teach many principles in math and science. The series will focus on math concepts like unit pricing, fractions, estimation, units of measurement and area. On the science side, the series looks at the concepts of physical and chemical change, preservation, refrigeration, enzymes, microorganisms and gas laws. This series is tied to Ohio's Academic Content Standards.

It's a Gas! Math & Science of the Blimp

Helping students learn math and science is the goal of this new multimedia project. The workings of the blimp will provide the framework for teachers to facilitate the application of concepts needed to prepare for Ohio's proficiency test. The video series follows two high school students, Rob and Lindsey, trying to win college scholarships. The two team up and decide to create a documentary about how blimps are made and how they work. Each video is a lesson starter that leads to hands-on CD-ROM, DVD and Web site activities.

Fitness Fanatic

Bring fitness into your classroom! Join Dave and local teen athletes as they share the fun of sports and exercise. Lesson plans based on Ohio Academic Content Standards in grades 5-8 are available online.

Econ and Me

The programs revolve around four children and their invisible friend, Econ, and apply real-world examples of economic understandings to individuals, families and communities.

Big or Small: Measure it All

Big or Small: Measure It All was created with a two-fold purpose. First, the videos show students how measurement is used every day in the “real world.” Second, the package offers students “hands-on” lessons that require the use of measurement to accomplish a task. It is directed at grades 4 and 6 and is keyed to mathematics standards for those grades. The package was created by a team of teachers from school districts in our service area.

108 Stitches

This multimedia project offers a science-based curriculum that uses the game of baseball to demonstrate basic principles of physics as set forth by the National Science Education Standards and the Ohio Science Academic Content Standards.
