Building Math for TEKS: Everest Trek - Print Version

Building Math for TEKS: Everest Trek - Print Version
This simulation is uniquely appropriate for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) initiatives. And it’s great fun!

Students will use algebraic thinking, data analysis and the engineering design process to solve problems in real-world settings.

  • In Building Math for TEKS: Everest Trek, students overcome the challenges of extreme weather and dangerous trail conditions to conquer the world’s tallest mountain.
  • Students will conduct mathematics investigations including
    • Locating and representing the range of acceptable values on a graph to meet design criteria
    • Extrapolating data based on trends.
    • Producing and analyzing graphs that relate two variables
    • Distinguishing between independent and dependent variables
    • Producing and analyzing graphs that relate two variables
    • Comparing rates of change (linear versus non linear relationships)
    • Measuring angles using a protractor
    • Comparing and discussing appropriate measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode)
    • Applying the distance-time-speed formula
  • Science investigations include:
    • Conducting two controlled experiments.
    • Collecting experimental data in a table
    • Using physical and math models
    • Distinguishing between independent and dependent variables
  • Building Math was developed through a partnership with the Boston Museum of Science and Tufts University, and successfully piloted in Boston-area schools.
  • Each book includes a poster illustrating the engineering design process and a DVD with classroom implementation samples.
  • Addresses TEKS standards and ITEA standards for technological literacy
  • Spiral-bound for easy reproducing and classroom use
