Algebra through Movement

Rockbridge County High School – 2007-2008 – Ten calculator-based motion sensors allow Algebra I, Parts I and II; Algebra I CP; Algebra II; Algebra III/Trig; and physics students to see how their own movement or that of a ball can be graphed over time.  Students can explore rate of change (slope) and intercepts and create equations representing that motion. Physics students can investigate the relationship between time and distance.  Abstract math concepts come alive with this technology for all levels of math expertise.
