Math Integration in CTE
Career & Technical Education
Math-in-CTE is not a curriculum, but a process through which the math that naturally occurs in the CTE curriculum is enhanced. Integrating math includes practical, hands-on applications of relevant math. It leads to increased academic engagement and achievement for students.
- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Math Integration Resources
Research shows that contextualized learning increases students' mathematical understanding and helps improve their attitudes towards math. The following two programs will be piloted in Phoenix Union starting in the '16-'17 school year.
- Career and Technical Education (CTE) driven classes where students are engaged in CTE content using their mathematics as a useful tool for solving real-world problems.
- All students work on developing and understanding the skills necessary to thrive in the modern workplace.
