Abstract:

Our topic today is math in career and technical education. The main message of the last two decades of educational reform is that we have to expect higher performance from all of our students, including those in career and technical education. And the academic area in which most students have the most problems is mathematics. For the past two years the National Research Center at the University of Minnesota has been conducting a study that has enhanced the math instruction in traditional career and technical education curricula. Here to tell us about that study today is Dr. James Stone, Director of the National Research Center.
