PUMAS (Practical Uses of Math and Science) - The On-line Journal of Math and Science Examples For Pre-College Education
Entry ID: 01-pumas-00

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: PUMAS -- is a collection of brief examples showing how math and science topics taught in K-12 classes can be used in interesting settings, including every day life. The examples are written primarily by scientists, engineers, and other content experts having practical experience with the material. They are aimed mainly at classroom teachers, and are available to all interested parties via the PUMAS web site. Our goal is to capture, for the benefit of pre-college education, the flavor of the vast experience that working scientists have with interesting and practical uses of math and science.
