      Science education and mathematics education at the primary level are compared in order to discuss to what extend integration between the two is possible and desirable. They have in common that both can be founded on inquiry learning and that understanding children’s thinking forms the basis for designing learning trajectories. Some examples of how science and math teaching can be combined, and how the two could profit from each other are given. The topic of floating and sinking is discussed, to underline that science and mathematics ask for their own local instruction theories
