The new curricula, titled Pathway2Algebra (P2A) and Pathway2Geometry (P2G), will focus on the instruction of foundational math concepts in the context of high-value careers. Content within each subject will center around twelve main topic areas, with each lesson addressing one or more Common Core State Standards. What distinguishes P2A and P2G from traditional math curricula is the in-depth career application that will be available to students. Over one hundred different occupations are represented in the curricula. As students work through lessons, in a blended, technology-enhanced learning model, they gain career exposure through detailed career spotlights. Most importantly, they have opportunity to experience purpose in their learning through the application of core math concepts in authentic on-the-job examples. In Pathway2Algebra and Pathway2Geometry, students learn and practice math fully immersed in a variety of unique and different careers.

MetaMetrics will partner in the development of the innovative math curricula to provide benchmark assessments and Quantile® measures at the beginning, middle, and end of the year. The Quantile measures will be used to indicate the skills and concepts students are ready to learn, as well as cumulative growth in mathematics abilities.

As a particularly unique feature, MetaMetrics will integrate their Quantile® Career Database, consisting of hundreds of Quantile-measured occupations, into student score reports. With the inclusion of this database, students will receive a list of occupations that align with their math ability. This career list will give students insight into the types of occupations for which they have achieved career preparedness. This, according to Joseph Goins, Ed.D., CEO for NS4ed, “is an invaluable point of connection for students. Students need the ability to connect their learning to their current and future employment potential. This information prepares students for the realities of today, as well as inspires them to prepare for the future.”
