## An analysis of the subject crossover and integration in the National Curriculum.
At skoool.com.eg, we are keen to show students the value of what they learn in one subject in the context of what they learn in another.
One clear example of this is in the crossover between Maths and Science. Principles that are learned in one subject are vital to the understanding of topics in the other.
Science relates to many different subjects taught at the 3rd Prepretory stage, in both development of skills and in factual content. The major areas of overlap with concepts taught in Mathematics are given below.
