Despite international support for cross-curricular activity
involving design and technology, science and mathematics
classroom practice in secondary schools has been unable to
respond positively or effectively. This paper explores the ideas
of purpose and utility as drivers to enable collaboration
between teachers from these subjects and suggests ways in
which this collaboration might take place.
