Raje, Sonali; Krach, Michael; Kaplan, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Concepts in mathematics are often universally applicable to other fields. A critical aspect for success in high school or college is the ability to transfer content knowledge from one discipline to another. This is especially true for material learned in the sciences and mathematics. Several studies have suggested that strong mathematical skills…
