8 Our Focus Is PRACTICAL MATH APPLICATIONS

9 Economic Stimulus Bill Improve student achievement through school improvement and reform:  Making progress toward rigorous college- and career-ready standards and high-quality assessments  Establishing pre-K-to college and career data systems that track progress and foster continuous improvement  Making improvements in teacher effectiveness and in the equitable distribution of qualified teachers for all students, particularly students who are most in need;  Providing intensive support and effective interventions for the lowest- performing schools http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/leg/recovery/factsheet/stabilization- fund.html

10 Our Focus Is PRACTICAL MATH APPLICATIONS Perkins Grant Goals State goals for use of funds: Academic and technical skills (professional technical education) development for students in vocational programs “All aspects" of an industry (related to a broad understanding of world of work, i.e., marketing, finance, production, customer service, management, human resources, etc.) Connections between secondary and post-secondary (curriculum and assessments) Curriculum development, implementation and integration Application of technology to the teaching process and as training of students in technology related careers http://www.pcc.edu/pavtec/perkins/default.htm

11 Our Focus Is PRACTICAL MATH APPLICATIONS Perkins Grant Purpose To develop more fully the academic, vocational, and technical skills of secondary and post-secondary students who elect to enroll in vocational technical education programs, by Building on the efforts of States and localities to develop challenging academic standards Promoting the development of services and activities that integrate academic, vocational, and technical instruction, and that link secondary and post-secondary vocational programs Increasing State and local flexibility in providing services and activities designed to develop, implement, and improve vocational and technical education

12 Our Focus Is PRACTICAL MATH APPLICATIONS What do we have to help? During the current economic climate as customers struggle to find the funds to keep their courses current, we have created the Perkins Shopping Site http://www.cengagesites.com/academic/?site=4368http://www.cengagesites.com/academic/?site=4368

15 Did you know… When students see the connection between school and career opportunities:  They stay in school longer  Work harder  Perform better

16 Our Focus Is PRACTICAL MATH APPLICATIONS Where do we go from here? Think about your courses  You already have assignments – how can you change them to incorporate more math?  Cengage Learning may have just solutions you need Think about your students  We’re usually the last stop before they enter the workplace  You have an opportunity to make a real difference
