This lesson integrates math into the teaching of American History. Our school has a Mufi-tiered Support System (MTSS) class with an emphasis upon math. As a Social Studies teacher, I have to teach a 25 minute MTSS math class every day. I decided to make my own lessons and teach math and social studies at the same time.
This lesson concerns the Steamboat Arabia from the 1850s. Data concerning the Arabia is provided as well as math problems involving that data. This lesson requires students to solve problems concerning volume and time calculations.
