The Mathematics and Science Integration Argument: A Stand for Teacher Education
Furner, Joseph M.; Kumar, David D.
EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, v3 n3 p185-189 Aug 2007
This paper explores the question, should we integrate mathematics and science in reforming science education? As science, especially physical science involves mathematics, and both subjects involve process skills, integrating science and mathematics methods courses might be a way to improve science education. Considerations and recommendations for mathematics and science integration are addressed.
