was selected by Michigan's Department of Career Development (MDCD)
to work with mathematics and automotive career and technical education
teachers across the state to integrate higher levels of mathematics
into the automotive technology career cluster.
role was to identify mathematics concepts taught in automotive courses
and to connect the concepts with the Michigan Mathematics Curriculum
Standards, the Michigan Education Assessment Program (MEAP) High School
Test in Mathematics, the American College Testing (ACT) WorkKeys Mathematics
Assessment Strands, and the National Automotive Technicians Education
Foundation (NATEF) Applied Mathematics Skills.
resource bank of integrated automotive and mathematic work examples
was developed and is contained on this CD-ROM. These work examples can
be implemented in both the automotive and the mathematic classrooms.
Instructors can access the work examples by Integrated Automotive/Mathematic
Work-Examples link. The eight NATEF categories are listed and each category
is a link to specific work examples correlated to that area.
Instructors can access the work examples by math level. By clicking
on the ACT WorkKeys Mathematic Assessment Strands link, a chart will
appear indicating all five levels of the ACT WorkKeys as well the characteristics
of the problem and skills involved for each level. You will notice that
the level number is highlighted and underlined. These are links that
when selected will display all of the work examples for that particular
ACT level by NATEF area.
