WebQuest  Integers and Science  

Exploring Integers and Scientific Facts 
There are many connections between integers and science. The boiling and freezing point of liquids, the melting and freezing points of solids, and the temperature of planets, are all expressed as integers. You have been selected to explore these connections.
To prepare for these explorations, you will need to browse our lessons on integers, completing the interactive exercises at the end of each. You will then complete a worksheet on integers and scientific facts. Next, you will extend your knowledge by searching on the web for additional scientific facts similar to the ones from the worksheet. Lastly, you will use the facts you gathered to create original problems for your own worksheet. These tasks will require a computer, access to the web, paper and pencil.
Process Part I: Learning About Integers
Process Part II: Apply Your Knowledge
Process Part III: Extend Your Knowledge
Congratulations! You learned about integer properties and operations. You also learned how integers are used to express the boiling and freezing point of liquids, the melting and freezing points of solids and the temperature of planets. You engaged in independent, online research to gather scientific facts on these topics. Lastly, you used the facts you gathered to create your own problems involving integers.
