With our new set of math literacy lessons, we put students in the role of community leaders to show them how math is used by leaders in the real world every day.
The Best Policy: How can leaders use math to make the best decisions for their communities? (CCSS.MP4) In these lessons, we present students with data regarding community issues and possible solutions and ask them to use their algebraic knowledge to make evidence-based decisions.
You can also pair this set with lessons in other subjects for cross-curricular integration in a unit about government policy debates:
Also new this week, two multimedia Additional Reading Practice lessons based on videos from our partners at We The Voters.
Use these lessons to get your students engaged in thinking about U.S. politics during this election season, and for related resources and activities, be sure to check out ThinkCERCA's Teach the Election site.
