As part of an effort to bring real world math and content driven by the Massachusetts labor market, DESE has teamed up with Pathway2Careers to deliver solutions to not just transform the future prosperity of individual students, but the economies of whole communities.

Through this partnership, educators located in Massachusetts have access to Pathway2Careers Math, Career Explorer, and Financial Literacy program at no additional charge.

Massachusetts Educators are encouraged to request access to Pathway2Careers through the form below. The Pathway2Careers Product Success team will work with you to provide implementation support and resources to ensure the successful implementation of Pathway2Careers’ real world focused math curriculum.

Massachusetts provides resources for interdisciplinary and embedded content that make critical connections between technical and academic skills. Each framework published will have sample lessons aligned to Massachusetts curriculum standards. In state-approved Career Technical Education (chapter 74) these support Strand 2: Embedded academics. These resources also support any educator and coursework to make learning relevant and real-world.

Lessons are presented in one of two ways:

Application – Application lessons are focused on a single career and the numerous ways a math concept is used in carrying out the work of that career.

Exploration – Exploration lessons show how a specific math concept is used across several careers, including the one in the specific Chapter 74 program area.

The framework pages have these resources linked as part of the implementation resources. The tables below are organized by the math content areas: Pre-Algebra (middle school), Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. We will continue to add to these resources.
