Title: Red Rocks Community College

Red Rocks Community College
  • Construction Technology
  • Technical Education Pathways Project
  • Integrating math standards with
  • real-world applications

2
Educational Goals
The goals of the Technical Education Pathways
Project and RRCC
  • The Projects overriding goal is to build a
    partnership with construction industry, high
    schools, and workforce development agencies to
  • Foster increased interest in construction
    careers
  • Define and improve the education and training
    pathways to success in those careers
  • To provide support to those who choose to learn
  • and teach along those pathways.

3
Program Highlights
  • RRCC is currently partnered with 13 Colorado and
    1 California high schools for the 2005/06 school
    year
  • Geometry Principles (Math)
  • Introduction to Construction (CTE)
  • Alternative Energy (CTE/Science)
  • Curriculum based on state content standards
  • Courses are part of the Construction Academy
    program, with curriculum developed via the
    Technical Education Pathways Project (TEPP)
  • Partially funded by the National Science
    Foundation to increase academic core competencies
    through the integration of technical education
    and academic curriculum in the classroom

4
Increasing Core Competencies
  • Improve the academic preparation of high school
    students with real-world technical applications
    of mathematics
  • Review academic and technical curriculum to
    define joint learning objectives, course sequence
    and articulation requirements
  • Provide professional development activities to
    achieve these competencies

5
Academic Integration With Technical Education
  • The GOAL is to improve the skill adaptability of
    the student integrating the real-world
    application of scientific, mathematics and
    communication content taught in the classroom
    with mentored workplace internships and
    apprenticeships

Mathematics in Colorado
  • The percentage of students meeting math standards
    has declined on the Colorado Student Assessment
    Program in the higher grade levels

Increased Math Requirements
  • Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE)
    Revised requirements for admission to a state 4
    year college and university include
  • High School Class of 2008 3 years of math
    (Algebra 1 or higher)
  • High School Class of 2010 4 years of math
    (Algebra 1 or higher)

8
Schools with Strong Math Gains
  • Common Factors for schools with strong math
    gains
  • Math teachers knew the math standards and the
    math content
  • Math lessons in textbooks were supplemented with
    practical activities
  • Teachers focused on student outcomes rather than
    just on the math lesson
  • Teachers asked students questions and made
    adjustments based on feedback

Pathway
  • Algebra Principles high school
  • Geometry Principles high school
  • Introduction to Construction dual credit with
    community college
  • Alternative Energy dual credit with community
    college
  • Work, apprenticeship, community college,
    university

What the Students are Saying . . .
As a student who has struggled with math, this
is the first math class that has ever interested
me. The subject matter is more realistic, and
the work is more hands on.
This class has actually made me realize what I
would like to do as a college student and for a
career.

What the Students are Saying . . .
I like this class because the work is realistic
stuff that we use in real life after we graduate.
It is actual job preparation.
This class puts math into real situations that
are useful. Regular math seems useless compared
to this.
The field trips make it more fun and
interesting.

What the Students are Saying . . .
The class is challenging but fun.
This class helps for students who arent strong
at math and helps them better understand it.
The material is easier to understand and is more
realistic than traditional geometry class.

What the Teachers are Saying . . .
In this class I have approximately three or four
students (mainly female) that have shown a
considerable change in attitude about math. This
by far has been the most exciting class I have
been a part of in my 7 years of teaching math.
The hands-on approach has a large effect on class
participation, which in turn leads to no
classroom management problems, everyone is busy!

What the Teachers are Saying . . .
The attendance of this class is well above the
rest of my classes, approximately 98. So far,
every lesson has just invigorated me to teach the
next lesson better. To a student, every student
said that they not only would recommend this
class to a friend but have already done so. Next
year I have two sections because the word is
getting out that math can be fun and
interesting! Jefferson County Schools

What Industry is Saying . . .
We like to have kids out here so they can see
how many different types of careers there are in
construction. Construction is desperate for
younger workers. OK, I get
it! Construction Academy industry partners
