Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Achieve has produced a series of “Mathematics at Work” brochures to examine how higher-level mathematics is used in today’s workplaces.
First developed in 2008, using the American Diploma Project benchmarks as the foundation, Achieve produced a series of "Mathematics at Work" brochures to examine how higher-level mathematics is used in today’s workplaces. Updated in 2013 to reflect the expectations set by the Common Core State Standards in mathematics, the brochures present case studies drawn from leading industries nationwide to illustrate the advanced mathematics knowledge and skills embedded in jobs that offer opportunities for advancement and are accessible to graduates with some education and training beyond high school but less than a four-year degree. The series underscores the value of a rigorous high school curriculum in mathematics. All high school graduates - regardless of whether they enroll in college, join the workforce or enter the military - benefit from acquiring a college- and career-ready foundation in mathematics. Feel free to print the PDFs below. Hard copies of the materials are no longer available.
For states that have not adopted the Common Core, brochures aligned to college- and career-ready standards are availablefor download as well:
