Correlated Curriculum Program: An Experimental Program, Mathematics Level 1. Project No. 10006.
Magram, Elyse; And Others
The Correlated Curriculum Program is a 4-year career-oriented program designed to provide a more effective educational program for the general course student, with an interdisciplinary approach to teaching. Teachers are organized into teams to plan for correlated lessons. Correlating career subjects with academic subjects serves to reinforce student learning and to improve achievement in all subjects. The document is a teacher's manual designed to assist the mathematics teacher in implementing the Mathematics Correlated with Business Careers curricula. Specific teacher and student activities are suggested and illustrated for each topic, but extensive lesson and unit plans have not been developed. Mathematical skills are developed in various simulated job situations related to six occupational areas: working in a store, in an office, in a warehouse, in a transporting company, in a service industry, and for the government. Additional, noncorrelated lessons are suggested to round out the students' mathematics education. Resources and references are listed in the appendix. (Author/AJ)
