High School Mathematics at Work is a collection of essays and illustrative tasks from workplace and everyday contexts that suggest ways to strengthen the mathematical education of all students.

The essays are written by a wide range of individuals who have thought deeply about mathematics education and about the futures of today's students. The National Center for Improving Science Education (NCISE) at WestEd was created to improve science and mathematics education for K students.

A large part of NCISE’s work included preparing science and mathematics teachers for the classroom. The rich mathematics in MiC is developed using realistic contexts to engage and motivate students, and the math models help insure retention by using various representation.

The book describes tasks and their use in daily educational practice to show how teachers can enrich their practices with inquiry-based learning and the use of workplace contexts.

Mathematics in Contextreverses this sequence; mathematics originates from real problems. The program introduces concepts within realistic contexts that support mathematical abstraction.

In the typical mathematics classroom, especially in the middle years of schooling, we tend to use one model to connect maths with the real world; we start by teaching the maths content and skills, we then get students to practice and do some maths, and then we next might apply some of those skills into a real world context by using learning activities such as word problems.

Combine academic and essential skills instruction within workplace contexts to guide adult learners on a path to a living wage and a sustainable career path. Aligned with WIOA requirements, our workforce solutions promote best practices for integrating academic and occupational skills to prepare students for postsecondary education and training.

Resources and findings generated through educational research and development projects funded in part by the National Science Foundation can help inform states and school systems that are developing strategies for improving K STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education.

Through an analysis of the workplace practices of STEM professionals doing research, engineering, and other technical work in optics and photonics, we identify ways in which workplace contexts, including social interactions, tools, and technology, and the workplace environment and culture shape how mathematics and communication are used to.

This is important because students may focus on the context without connecting the context to the learning objective. Learning characteristics such as attention problems, cognitive processing deficits, passive learning and metacognitive deficits predispose students to "miss" the connection.

Contexts for Learning Mathematics provides carefully crafted units designed to foster deep understanding in a math workshop environment. By setting each unit in the context of students' lives, teaching and learning immediately becomes engaging and meaningful in your classroom.

The author's experiences in using children's literature to engage her students in mathematics are described in this article.
