Reply to: RE>Math Ed.
This is an interesting topic, and I'm sure you'll get a lot of different responses.
But we need to attend to what we mean by integation of mathematics. Do we mean something like "using arithmetic"? Do we mean looking at mathematical history when we look at history? Do we mean writing in the mathematics class and doing mathemaics in the writing class? I'm curious to find out what people are doing.
Glad you asked the question!

I am a Pacific Lutheran University methods student who would like to get a variety of professional opinions on this subject. Thank you
