Integrating Mathematics and Science: Ecology and Venn Diagrams
Leszczynski, Eliza; Munakata, Mika; Evans, Jessica M.; Pizzigoni, Francesca
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v20 n2 p90-97 Sep 2014
Efforts to integrate mathematics and science have been widely recognized by mathematics and science educators. However, successful integration of these two important school disciplines remains a challenge. In this article, a mathematics and science activity extends the use of Venn diagrams to a life science context and then circles back to a discussion of professional development and classroom results. The activity presented seeks to integrate mathematics and science by engaging students in a meaningful exploration of both fields of study. In particular, this integration enables students to use mathematical diagrams to represent relationships involving topics in ecology, physiology, and life science.
