This case study provides a summary of the history and science of matches. In the lesson, students consider how matches were discovered and work together to think about new applications for matches to solve real-life problems. Matches, also called friction lights, are a product inspired by an accidental discovery that made it much easier to start a fire. This case can be used as a way to integrate engineering into lessons on chemical reactions, flammability, and phases of matter. A materials list, teacher notes, teacher background information, safety notes, standards, assessment, resources, and references are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, About the Authors, Acknowledgments, Introduction, Appendix, Image Credits, and Index.
