Gardner, Andrea R.; Warnick, Brian K.; Lawver, Rebecca G. – Journal of Research in Technical Careers, 2017
Achievement test scores in mathematics have been a concern among educators for many years. Teaching contextualized mathematics has been found to be effective and includes providing a direct application to real-life scenarios rather than teaching linear equations and algebraic principles in isolation. This study measured the effects of integrating…
