Science does not exist in a vacuum and, therefore, shouldn't be taught that way. In that spirit, Activities Linking Science With Math, K-4, is a hands-on guide for preservice and inservice elementary school teachers who want to connect science instruction with other areas of studyincluding visual arts, social sciences, language arts, and especially math.
