Math for College and Career Readiness

If you have ever answered the question, "When am I going to use this?" this math series was written for you! Middle school students will learn how to apply math skills in the context of a variety of careers. Rather than including math instruction, situations are provided to apply what you know. In the grade 7 book, for example, there are 9 units, each with a different career or real-life opportunity to use your math knowledge. Units 1-3 are age-appropriate jobs: lawn care, yard sales and food pantries. Units 4-6 are careers for the masses: mechanics, car sales and marketing. And the last 3 units are STEM careers: architecture, nursing and accounting. In the lawn care unit, for example, the reader is introduced to the job with a half page to read followed by a list of the 4 Common Core standards met by the lesson. You then have prerequisite skill practice of two-step inequalities, integer subtraction and area of composite figures with a practice page for each area. Then it's time to put these concepts into the real-life application of lawn care over 4 pages. Every unit is similarly structured. Reproducible for classroom/homeschool use only. Answers are in the back. 94 pp, sc. ~ Sara
