The Great Divide: How Mathematics Is Perceived by Students in Math and Science Classrooms
Beauford, Judith E.
Science Scope, v33 n3 p44-48 Nov 2009
Often the differences students see in science and mathematics classrooms are in perspective, approach, or application. Understanding those differences can help teachers to present a unified picture of mathematics and science to their students. In this article, the science teacher is given a glimpse of the treatment of topics shared by both disciplines as they are represented in mathematics texts, with suggestions for better transfer between disciplines. (Contains 2 figures.)
