Math in the Middle...of Nature

Ideal for grades: 6 - 9
Duration: Twelve, 20-minute episodes
Closed-Captioned
Producer: South Carolina ETV

Math in the Middle...of Nature

Each episode includes a video fieldtrip to help students see real life applications of the many math concepts featured in the series. Examples include a community ecologist studying population distribution on the coast of Oregon, watching spotted owls as they feed their young, and collecting data on lizards in the desert of Southern New Mexico.

Mathematics concepts: Magnification, volume/area/length, fractions, graphing, estimation, probability, statistics, reasoning, percentages and proportions, volume, exponents, patterns, geometry, scaling, problem-solving.

Rights granted include: a) life of media audiovisual use, b) public performance, c) campus or building closed circuit and digital/video-on-demand transmission.
