Multicultural Science and Math Connections

Multicultural Science and Math Connections is a unique, fascinating volume of middle school projects and activities.  Students explore and practice discoveries and achievements from other civilizations. 

Part I highlights the contributions of 14 cultures, from Egypt and Kenya to Hopi and China, that tend to be underrepresented in the traditional math and science curricula.  Part II focuses on ten outstanding scientists and mathematicians from various cultures and ethnic groups.  Throughout Multicultural Science and Math Connections, you'll find hands-on science or math activities, background information about the culture, critical-thinking questions, project suggestions, and more.

Among the dozens of topics:

  • How the Inuit Stay Warm
  • The Puzzle of the Sriyantra
  • Egyptian Water Clock
  • Hypatia, martyred genius
  • Leon Roddy, "the Spider Man"
  • Benjamin Banneker, astronomer

In diverse classrooms, exploring and understanding the diverse contributions of cultures across the world reinforces student engagement and comprehension.  Multicultural Science and Math Connections is an excellent resource for teachers who are looking for something more in their science and math programs.
