Why Use AMP21?
Do you want easy-to-implement materials that have well planned teacher protocols and teacher prompts, questions to engage discourse, estimated times of discussion, step-by-step implementation guides? Are you tired of hearing students say that they hate math? Are you looking for math problems that will motivate students and spark discourse? Are you looking for “REAL” world tasks (small business references, break-even analyses, percentages and rates, etc) that engage students and help them develop analytical skills they will use in life?
If any of these questions sound like something you have recently thought, try AMP21 today! The AMP21 curriculum was designed to engage students with even modest mathematical skills to find motivation and success in addressing real-world decisions.
