  About the Teaching Supplement
USS ConstitutionThese lessons are designed to assist teachers in the teaching of mathematics for grades K–12, by applying the skills being taught in the classroom to a real-life scenario: life on board USS Constitution. Many of these lessons compliment those found on the USS Constitution Museum's interdisciplinary theme unit website for teachers


This teaching supplement for grades K–12 was made possible by a generous grant from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems in 2005.

The USS Constitution Museum's Education Department would like to extend a special thanks to the teachers who wrote and/or contributed to these lesson plans: Mary Brisson, Alan Laroche, Matthew Coleman and Donna Gallas. Their creative ideas and passion for teaching inspired us all.
