Integrated Studies: Math (sampler)
The Drexel Math Forum supports a searchable collection of resources, continues to improve its sketchpad tool for geometric models, posts a Problem of the Week (subscription required), weekly electronic newsletter with integrated lessons like math and poetry and software reviews, and leads summer workshops. The staff has issued a call for experts to participate in their "ASK DR. MATH" project. This a wonderful opportunity for you to become an online expert!
The Center for Children and Technology began as the educational research and development division of Bank Street College in New York City. They investigate the roles that technology can play in improving teaching and learning within children's classrooms, schools, and communities.

Teacher Dymphnia San Nicolas-Diaz's math class used remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV) to expand beyond traditional textbooks and calculations and answer the perennial question, "will we ever use this in the real world?".
Integrating STEM into her curriculum, the students first came up with their own ideas of how to make an ROV, then worked in groups of four to design their robot.
An Integrated Approach To Math Instruction
