Abstract: Few studies have examined the student learning effects of integrating science with mathematics and technology. We compared a school that integrated mathematics, science, and technology in grade 9 to a school in the same district that taught the three courses separately. The distinguishing feature of the integrating school was the reorganization of instruction in the three subjects to prepare students for seven group projects (involving a total of 25 hours) that required the application of knowledge and skill that were shared by the three subjects as well as learning outcomes that were unique to each. The study detected benefits for students in the integrated setting in terms of their ability to apply shared learning outcomes, student motivation, ability to work together, and attitudes to appraisal of group work. Female students in the integrated school had a better understanding of selected science learning outcomes. Attitudes toward mid-term exams were higher in the control school.
