Good morning, I am back in search of some further guidance. A few weeks back I asked for some help in developing an interdisciplinary product. My personal goal was to infuse 8th grade math common core as that seems to be the hardest to merge with other subjects.
Right now I have a cool activity using LEGO EV3 robots to help understand functions http://www.corestandards.org/Math/Content/8/F/
Students will be presented with a challenge that will allow them to define the starting points of each robot to allow for them to finish at approximately the same time if they are traveling at various speeds.
I want to merge the ideas of functions with social studies and language arts. I am a bit stuck at the moment. I was thinking students could analyze functional relationships of periods of time and then create their own graph with language arts doing the writing portion of some nature, but not real sure.
Any thoughts? I would like to finalize this idea and then actually do the project and identify pitfalls.
