This is a career-infused, middle and high school mathematics and workplace skills program. As the first math instruction program to offer capstone projects linked to 16 career clusters, the WIN Math digital learning platform is aligned to Common Core State Standards and local state objectives. With personalized instruction through a project-based framework, students learn math concepts in the context of relevant career opportunities. The WIN Math curriculum is organized into 36 units addressing career clusters with emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and high demand occupations. Working individually or collaboratively, students tackle challenges and work on projects such as marketing plans or performance charts similar to what might be required in a workplace setting. With the WIN Math digital teaching and learning platform, teachers facilitate instruction through a blended learning model introducing the objective, career context, warm-up and then engagement activities. Students in grades 5-8 who are on grade-level, or high school students who are below grade level, can use the program. The four-year curricula consists of interactive math tools, career connections and capstone projects that highlight aspirational as well as practical career paths in order to engage students and provide real world connections and incentives for learning. Students then demonstrate their understanding through embedded formative and summative assessments giving teachers real time student progress monitoring support. Check it out.

A real challenge to get to any actual instructional materials; lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of press release type stuff.
