Hospitality and Tourism 2: Costing

Math-enhanced CTE lessons are written only after CTE and math teacher teams work together to develop a curriculum map that identifies the CTE concepts and intersecting math concepts (including the Common Core math standards) that are naturally embedded within the CTE curriculum. Once the map is complete, the CTE and math teacher teams, working in communities of practice, select from within it one or more CTE concepts and related math concepts to develop into CTE lesson plans. The Math-in-CTE model’s seven-element pedagogic framework (PDF) guides this lesson development process. When the lessons are complete, the CTE teachers create scope and sequence plans for integrating the lessons into their courses.

Costing is a sample Hospitality and Tourism (Culinary/ProStart) lesson created by a CTE and math teacher team from Utah. The lesson’s objective is to teach students to accurately find cost per serving and use this serving cost to determine a menu price. The CTE concepts taught in this lesson are cost per serving and menu prices. Math concepts include addition, division, and percentages.
