Math-in-CTE Sample Lesson: Aircraft Weight and Balance

Mar 2012

In response to hundreds of requests from CTE educators and school administrators across the United States for more information about its Math-in-CTE curriculum integration and professional development model, the NRCCTE developed a series of videos about the model.

In this video, teacher J. C. Parry (Arlington Career Center, Arlington, VA) leads his students through a lesson about the importance of calculating weight and balance in order to make sure that an airplane is safe to fly.
