Materials for Teaching Together: Science and Mathematics Teachers collaborating for better results (2013 – 2015)

Project: Research

Project Details


he main aim of the project is to produce materials for pre- and in-service teacher training, and for teaching in schools, that allow teachers to teach mathematics and science in an interdisciplinary way, as well as to collaborate with each other in several ways, both in preparing and in executing their teaching. Numerous evidence (e.g. Jones/Rasmussen/Moffitt 1997: “A collaborative approach to interdisciplinary learning”, Bransford et al. 2005: “Foundations and opportunities for an interdisciplinary science of learning”, as well as several works from Resnick or Schoenfeld) shows that this will foster learning and improve achievements in both mathematics and science. This is done by developing and collecting materials that are showing a variety of methods, approaches and contexts. The context will be relevant and meaningful to students, and can contain out-of-classroom activities, real-life situations, nature of science issues. Several of these materials will be supported by interactive ICT products.
