My school is hyped about the promise of co-curricular education and they are giving the math and science teachers paid days off to develop lesson plans that synergize our learning goals. I'm on board with this.
The problem is that I'm teaching geometry and my science grade-level peer is teaching chemistry. I'm confident that she could use my help reminding students about the kind of algebra that could help with balancing equations or doing stochiometry, and statistics refreshers would probably also be awesome. But I can't think of much of anything that would use plane geometry on the Euclidean or Cartesian plane. And while my experience of chemistry is several paradigm shifts ago, I can't imagine what she would teach that would help my students get better at proofs or constructions.
Does anyone have experience or references that could help me to bring some productive ideas to our collaborations?
