• 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.
    Mathematical Processes
    • 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 strategially.
    • Attend to precision.
    • Look for and make use of structure.
    • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
    Research shows 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.
