We share a STEM activity designed to integrate biology and mathematics through technology. The proposed activity was completed in two class hours (80 minutes), during which middle school students worked with LabQuest and Vernier probeware to collect data and Geogebra to graph and study data. The activity was designed to foster understanding of photosynthesis and linear relationships. With this activity we were able to effectively integrate both mathematics and biology concepts through technology and propose multiple learning modes for students through real-world context.
