This collection of bike-related activities is perhaps best suited for students at the middle school level. Using a variety of computer-based tasks, worksheets, and hands-on investigations, students are asked to research materials used in current and past bikes, help a family make decisions about purchasing bikes for each family member, and to determine a mathematical relationship between diameter and circumference. In a well-developed final activity, students are lead through the process of comparing gear ratios and development (distance the bike goes in one pedal revolution). Each of these tasks is clearly outlined, although each individual teacher would need to more fully develop pedagogy (materials needed, procedures, time needed, order of activities) to fully implement the activities in his or her classroom. Assessments are included for most of the activities, allowing for both the student and teacher feedback. Additional SMART notebook files are included (visit http://express.smarttech.com/# to “view, save and interact” with these files - or to download the software - for free) to support instruction.
