Tobias, Jennifer M.; Ortiz, Enrique
Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, v2 Aug 2007
Preservice elementary teachers need to be given the experiences of integrating mathematics with other subjects. They need to go into the classroom with the understanding that mathematics is not an isolated topic. This article describes a paper airplane activity that was presented in a class of preservice elementary education teachers to show how mathematics and science can be integrated with one another. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
