Correlated Model

Based on "Mix It Up: Suggestions for correlating science and mathematics" by Drs. Vasquez-Mireles and West, we encourage you to follow these steps in developing your own correlated math and science lesson:

  1. Find a science teacher partner to work with
  2. Choose a math concept
  3. Teach the math concept to your science partner
  4. Identify pertinent science concepts
  5. The science teacher teaches the science concepts to the math teacher partner
  6. Co-develop the correlated lesson
  7. Decide the mode of instruction

These steps have been adapted to begin with a math concept, but you may reference the article to see how to start with a science concept.
