Math-in-CTE is a curriculum integration model designed to enhance mathematics that is embedded in career and technical education (CTE) content. The process provides the opportunity for math and CTE faculty teams to work together in communities of practice to identify where math intersects with CTE concepts and applications, leading to the creation of math-enhanced CTE lessons that follow a seven-element pedagogic framework. Premised on five core principles, the research-based Math-in-CTE model has been shown to have a significant positive impact on student learning in mathematics with no loss to career and technical area content.
