Title:

Teaching Algebra So It Makes Sense to CTE Students

Abstract:

Participants in this session will experience one of the Algebra I lessons contained in the Real Numbers Algebra I/Mathematics I book. This book is the end result of algebra teachers visiting various industries looking for the application of algebra. These teachers then developed lessons that taught the content through hands-on projects in a specific career context. The lessons are available free to all educators in Illinois.
