In this study, the “4MAT (4 Mode Application Techniques) Teaching Model” and “Interdisciplinary Concept Model”, the applications of which aimed to gather different disciplines around the selected concepts, were integrated within the scope of the disciplines of mathematics and social studies. For this study, these two models were combined to develop and test what was designated the I4MAT (Interdisciplinary 4MAT) model. The study was planned with a pretest-posttest, control group, experimental design. The study involved 65 students (primary school, 2016). This study found that the attainment level of students and their mean scores significantly favored the experimental group. It also found that education with the I4MAT model effectively and fully attained the learning aims and achievement and that the scores differed in the control group according to their learning styles.
