Abstract

Science and mathematics are naturally and logically related in the real world. Educators are trying to capture this relationship in the classroom in an effort to improve students' achievement and attitude in both disciplines. However, the literature abounds with terms and definitions related to the integration of science and mathematics education. The Berlin-White Integrated Science and Mathematics (BWISM) Model was developed to provide a template to characterize current resources, guide in the development of new materials, and provide a common language to advance the research base related to integrated science and mathematics teaching and learning.
