The Unified Science and Mathematics for Elementary Schools (USMES) Approach

The Unified Science and Mathematics for Elementary Schools (USMES) is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The USMES curriculum project grew out of recommendations made by participants at the 1970 Cambridge Conference on the Correlation of Science and Mathematics in Schools. The idea of USMES is for teachers and students to identify and attempt to solve together real problems in their local environment.
