# Real-World Math with Computers

*Real-World Math with Computers* contains 29 activities that explore real-world applications of math concepts.

## Description

Concepts from algebra through calculus are covered. Activities cover a wide variety of topics, including linear, quadratic, and periodic functions, statistics, systems of equations, and many more. A variety of sensors are used, including motion detectors, temperature sensors, force sensors, microphones, etc.

## Included with *Real-World Math with Computers*

- Complete student experiments with materials list, step-by-step instructions, data tables, and questions.
- Teacher Information section for each experiment with complete directions for setting up experiments, helpful hints, and sample graphs and data.
- Word-processing files of the student sections on a CD so that any experiment may be easily edited to your specifications (Microsoft Word for Macintosh and Windows files).

Features listed above are only available when you purchase the lab book. They are not in the downloadable evaluation PDFs.
