“When will I ever use this?"

Tuesday, August 11, 2020; 2 pm Eastern
(1 pm Central; 12 noon Mountain; 11 am Pacific; 10 am Alaska)
Why should I learn this stuff? This is an increasingly common question in math classes that suggests students are struggling to find purpose in their learning.

In this session, we will explore a new career-focused math curriculum from Pathway2Careers that places ALGEBRA and GEOMETRY in the context of high-value career opportunities. Lesson samples will be explored that align with Common Core State Standards in algebra or geometry and demonstrate the real application of these standards in authentic on-the-job examples.

Seeing the why behind the what can enhance both motivation and retention.
