Hi from Vermont

Snow has been replaced by daffodils in my garden and Spring is firmly in the air. Thanks for your message. Cancun is sounding very appealing right now. Your math resources are growing rapidly and looking excelent. I think linked curricula between math and science would be good. Why waste valuable class time on just science, when the data could lead to a math exercise?

I agree Declan, math models pretend to emulate natural phenomenae, or more precisely, what science knows about nature. Maths are already present in your biology experiments, kids learn to measure, count, collect data, I see you have reserved room for math connections, so next natural step is analysing collected data in order to discover patterns; simplified math models can be developed which can be used to predict future events. Let's make kids think as scientists =). Love the idea, no doubts we should work on it.
