Role Model Videos

DESCRIPTION

Through these role model videos, professionals' real world views and application of math show high school students just how relevant math is to their futures.  Filmed on location, professionals tell students about how they use math in their careers and what math meant to them in high school. 

The role model videos are an important aspect of the"Scaling Up STEM Learning with the VCL" model.  Teacher participants in this ITEST project were required to screen videos from this resource and engage their students in discussion about real world use of math and potential interest in STEM occupations.  The project PIs found that students were responsive to seeing unanticipated ways in which math is used.
