Description: Extending Mathematical Power: A Math Curriculum for Adults, extends school mathematics reform to currently under-served populations so that they more effectively engage mathematical demands at work, at home as parents and caregivers, in the community, or as they seek high school credentials and further education. Teachers and researchers with expertise in adult mathematics education and K-12 mathematics reform have developed and field tested EMPower curriculum units around the topic areas of number sense; patterns, functions, and relations; geometry and measurement; and data and statistics. Example units for each topic have four parts: The Math Problem; Try This: Ideas for Facilitation; Research Findings: Overheard in the Classroom; and Math Resources. Supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Levels: Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12)

Resource Types: Lesson Plans and Activities, Problems/Puzzles
Math Topics: Basic Algebra, Measurement, Number Sense/About Numbers, Patterns/Relationships, Euclidean Plane Geometry, Data Analysis, Statistics
