How do these simple Algebra concepts support Engineering Careers? What are some of the Engineering careers that I can get my students excited about when they experience success with these Algebra practices? Engineers don’t just work on the railroad or in the factory. There are thousands of different types of jobs in this area. Check out the supplemental web site to bring this to life for your students. http://www.allengineeringschools.com/faq/careers_in_engineering.php
IACP Resource Project When working with students with disabilities provide them with the data collection forms and examples of graphs indicative of the problems presented. Additional modifications include telling the student the number of measurements needed for this activity. This site bridges academic planning for success and career planning for success: Before introducing this activity, discuss the range of engineering careers possible. Use the supplemental web site to do this or have them explore and discover an assigned number of engineering careers and present them to the class. As a follow-up to this classroom activity, have the students apply how the particular types of engineers would use the major concepts introduced in this lesson, e.g. mass, length, incline, and time, to produce a product or design a system in their particular area of engineering. Do this individually or in groups.

IACP Resource Project Individual Academic and Career Plan Research and Resources Research and Resources Target User: Parents – High School Students Purpose: Resource Book You Don't Really Know Me: Why Mothers and Daughters Fight, and How Both Can Win by Terri Apter, 2004 ISBN: 978-0393057584; Hardcover or Paperback, 256 pages; Price: $24.95 or $13.95
IACP Resource Project The author believes the often turbulent relationship between mothers and their teen daughters is not inevitable and can be improved. Drawing upon numerous interviews with adolescent girls and their mothers, Apter concludes that younger girls often try to emulate their mothers while older ones want to distance themselves from their mothers and not be "like them." Yet, the author stresses, ongoing interaction between mother and daughter is key. The challenge for moms is to avoid the endless cycle of arguments and frustrating conversations and try to be seen by their daughters as more responsive. Apter offers a number of strategies to address common adolescent issues, such as complaints of a lack of freedom, concerns over physical appearance, and irritability. Her advice is sound: mothers should make an effort to listen to their daughters without passing judgment, either verbally or with physical expressions; and they shouldn't shout or argue but instead wait for their daughters to calm down before having a conversation. Real-life conversations will help readers identify with many of the situations.
