Do your students enjoy working with practical problems that are "real" in their world? Have you been searching for resource materials which will encourage students to deal with practical problems in their own community? Fortunately, such materials are currently under development by the USMES project (Unified Science and Mathematics for Elementary Schools). USMES is producing interdisciplinary materials designed to stimulate students to explore relevant issues in the social as well as the natural sciences.
