### 1. Connecting Mathematical Concepts & Procedures

Mathematical concepts can be linked to mathematical procedures. Many real-world problems can be solved by first applying a mathematical concept to said problem and then carrying out a corresponding procedure (or mathematical operation) to derive an actual solution . There is a plethora of examples to illustrate the importance of connecting mathematical concepts to mathematical procedures.

### 2. What is a Math Concept?

Is it better to learn a math concept rather than a math fact? In this lesson, learn which one will help you more in life. Also explore some math concepts and see how they are applied.

### 3. Teaching Math: Methods & Strategies

Teachers play an important role in fostering mathematics skills. In this lesson, learn some good ways to teach math methods and problem-solving strategies.

### 4. Integrating Math & Other Subjects

Math can be integrated into just about everything we learn and do as a society. From academia to the industrial and professional world, math is used to model and solve problems. Further, math is simply essential in much of day-to-day life.

### 5. Integrated Curriculum: Definition, Benefits & Examples

Have you ever wondered what and how an integrated curriculum works? Learn about this hot topic that is shaping how teachers teach and students learn in the classroom.

### 6. Activities for Integrating Math & Science in the Classroom

This lesson explores the current trend of integrating math and science instruction into the classroom. We'll also look at various examples of activities you can use to engage K-12 students in learning science and math.
