 The teaching of mathematics can be elevated from the routine recitation of pure forms and abstract relationships to the realistic modeling of scientific phenomena. A system of scientific probes linked to a graphing calculator, called the Calculator Based Laboratory (CBL) system, provides the connection between scientific experimentation, data analysis and mathematical modeling. A 1994 National Science Foundation grant supported interdisciplinary faculty teams to develop mathematics/science modules utilizing the CBL and graphing calculator technology.
