Math in Career and Technical Education (CTE)
The Math-in-CTE model is a curriculum integration model designed to enhance mathematics that is embedded in career and technical education (CTE) content. It is a process that provides the opportunity for math and CTE teacher teams to work together in communities of practice and to identify where math intersects with CTE concepts and applications. This process leads to the creation of math-enhanced CTE lessons that follow a seven-element pedagogic framework. Premised on five core principles, the research-based Math-in-CTE model has been shown to have a significant positive impact on student learning in mathematics with no loss to career and technical area content.
Math in CTE was developed by the National Center for Career and Technical Educators. For more information please visit their website
The Green Hills site is one of three regional sites across the state of Iowa. We support teachers in the areas of Family & Consumer Sciences, Agriculture, Industrial Technology, Business, and Mathematics.
