Ohio Math Works

Ohio Math Works is an interactive, multimedia program for 7-9 grade students that links mathematics with careers. Video, web, and print materials bring the world of fashion, food, theme parks, sports, and meteorology into the classroom. The series correlates to the Ohio Proficiency Outcomes for 9th grade and the Ohio High School Graduation Competencies. Through hands-on projects that simulate the daily challenges in these industries, students will use mathematics in much the same way that industry professionals do to create their products.39

Ethics in a Global Society

For high school students, discussions about ethics would typically center on issues like cheating on a test or plagiarism, but, in this four-part series (15 minutes each), the discussion focuses on how ethics affect careers and the workplace. Filmed in a high school government class, students discuss ethical behavior in the arenas of business, government, and science as a way to foster deeper thinking about the ethical dimensions of their life and our society.
