Math in CTE

Integration
Grant

In October of 2014, Alpena Public Schools was awarded a State of Michigan Department of Education Integration Grant. The purpose of this grant is to incorporate Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) into Career and Technical Education programs.

We assembled a math team to follow the “Math-in-CTE” format created by the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education and create lessons for Welding, Auto, and Construction Trades. The goal of these lessons is to take the math that is embedded in the CTE program and enhance it. Students will rigor up their math skills without losing CTE content. Students who are successful at completing the lessons may have the opportunity to earn Algebra II credit, technical math credit, and/or articulated credit at Alpena Community College.
