Introducing a powerful new teaching tool from COMAP!
Covering topics from Algebra
I to Precalculus, TechMAP modules show high school students
real, immediate uses for mathematics.
All students MUST PASS the same standardized tests in order to
graduate and succeed. All 22 TechMAP modules show tangible,
real-world applications of the material on these exams, driving
home required math skills.
The mathematics required by state tests is taught in algebra and
geometry courses, but for many students this is not enough.
TechMAP modules demonstrate these skills in vocational fields;
they help reinforce existing mathematics courses through actual
career activities. These modules are self-contained with
exercises, teacher notes, handouts, etc., and can be used
individually or together. Each module takes one to three weeks
of classroom time.
- A builder finds the slope
of a roof the same way an
algebra student finds the slope of a line.
- A farmer selling her
wheat must decide between several
grain elevators in different locations. She uses conic
sections and parameters on elementary models to make
- An exploration into the
packaging industry reveals area
- GPS devices are
everywhere today, and our module
explains how they actually work; students become well-versed
in spherical geometry, time differences, and codes.
- Carpenters work with
shapes and relationships every
day, and in our modules we explore circle relationships,
differential equations, linear regression, and more.
CD-ROM contains 22 modules, Student and Teacher Editions for each, including teacher notes, answers, handouts, and transparencies.
