Abstract:

Jim Stone discusses methods for increasing the math skills of CTE students, reporting on a number of studies being conducted by the National Research Center that are based on a basic principle that virtually all educators would agree with. And that principle is that students learn better material which is relevant and useful to their lives. The NRCCTE's studies are examining that basic principle, one in a very rigorous experimental test, to see if there is evidence which supports it.
