Abstract

Often students struggle with connecting course content to the real world which can lead to a lack of motivation during learning. Math is a tool used daily within the agriculture industry. Providing applied instruction connecting math concepts with typical agricultural careers can help bridge the gap between content in the classroom and real world applications. Career and Technical Education programs provide hands on learning for students to prepare them for a career in a focused industry. Student enrollment can be a struggle for many programs while students balance the necessary graduation requirements. Aligning program instruction with additional course credits would create another avenue for students to choose and can in turn increase program enrollment. The purpose of this project was to create a course curriculum within the agriscience program that would provide the students at Perry High School an option to count the agribusiness courses as their fourth-year math credit.
