This task was developed by high school and postsecondary mathematics and health sciences educators, and validated by content experts in the Common Core State Standards in mathematics and the National Career Clusters Knowledge & Skills Statements. It was developed with the purpose of demonstrating how the Common Core and CTE Knowledge & Skills Statements can be integrated into classroom learning - and to provide classroom teachers with a truly authentic task for either mathematics or CTE courses.

Writing about gender roles of the 1950s, Betty Friedan once defined the ...

Writing about gender roles of the 1950s, Betty Friedan once defined the "suburban housewife" as "the dream image of the young American woman." Just as prescriptive literature of the 19th century geared to the middling classes emphasized women's "true" place in society as mother and wife, the 1950s saw an ideal perpetuated in books, magazines, movies, television, songs, and ads that depicted the white, middle-class woman fulfilled only by a happy marriage. The following article from a popular magazine of 1960 offered a sociological survey of the more than one-third of adult American women whose lives did not fit this domestic norm. Based on interviews with single, divorced, and widowed women, and a host of "experts", the author detailed the "frenzied" mating efforts of women who tried, but failed, to marry as well as the adverse psychological effects of being single. Despite the evidence presented that unmarried women could be happy--sometimes even happier than their married counterparts--the article's rhetorical emphasis on "frantic hordes of unwed women" relentlessly searching for husbands perpetrated a stereotypical depiction at odds with some of the statistics and testimonies quoted.

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess whether students recognize relationships of direct proportion and how well they solve problems that involve proportional reasoning. In particular, it is intended to help you identify those students who: use inappropriate additive strategies in scaling problems, which have a multiplicative structure; rely on piecemeal and inefficient strategies such as doubling, halving, and decomposition, and have not developed a single multiplier strategy for solving proportionality problems; and see multiplication as making numbers bigger, and division as making numbers smaller.

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the congruence of polygons. The applet presents nine polygons that are in fact congruent, but don't look it because they are reflected and rotated in various ways. If you click on one, it rotates and flips as needed, then slides over the top of another to show it is congruent. The web page describes how to determine if two polygons are congruent. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.
