Career Education--An Idea Book for Mathematics Teachers.
Soper, Joan, Ed.
The book contains a series of career-oriented ideas for mathematics teachers, contributed by teachers in the East Providence Career Education Project. The ideas are the basis of the interdisciplinary contracting system for grades 7-12 in three pilot schools. They are classified by occupational clusters, which the teachers can use to incorporate their academic skill development with career exploration and development. The ideas are meant to be adapted to any grade level and incorporated into the teacher's particular teaching style, classroom organization, and student needs. The occupational clusters integrated into the mathematics curriculum are: agribusiness and natural resources, business and office, communications and media, construction, consumer and homemaking, environment, fine arts and humanities, health, hospitality and recreation, manufacturing, marine science, marketing and distribution, personal service, public service, and transportation. Each idea is numbered separately and is presented in a one- or two-sentence format. (BP)
