A Curriculum/Instruction Model with Specific Activities to Integrate Math and Science

This presentation is based upon the authors' Chapter: Connecting School Science and Mathematics, appearing in the 1995 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Yearbook. Connecting Mathematics Across the Curriculum. This chapter describes the Berlin-White Integrated Science and Mathematics (BWISM) Model. The BWISM Model was developed to provide a template to characterize and guide the development, selection, and sequencing of materials and activities for integrated mathematics and science teaching and learning. The presenters will outline the six basic aspects of the BWISM Model, provide a brief theoretical and reasearch justification, and discuss in detail specific classroom-based, integration activities related to each of the aspects. Copies of the integrated mathematics and science activities and a bibliography of related, additional activities will be furnished.
