I teach 7th grade physical science and we use math a lot! We have graphed ramp height vs. distance traveled for a golf ball rolling down hill and found the relationship. Students know how to draw lines of best fit, and extrapolate. We found final temperatures when mixing two different temperatures of water, and just finished calculating heat transfers. We also will use math for density, solving sp...
