Summary/Abstract: On the basis of the natural connections between the science and mathematics, an interdisciplinary approach is applied in the non-formal chemistry classes of the Sofia High School of Mathematics. The 7th grade students have pronounced mathematical ability and the teacher is competent in chemistry and mathematics. In this case chemistry and mathematics are integrated both on the basis of content and procedural level. Seventh graders apply their mathematical knowledge and skills in acquisition of new chemistry knowledge. They solve problems and develop projects, requiring integration of both subjects. In this way, students form complex communication, problem-solving and systemic thinking skills. As a result of the approach used, students develop their talents and abilities, increase their interest in science, and improve their achievements at the Olympiads in Chemistry.
