Abstract

We present a case of one teacher’s engagement in project-based learning for algebra I students. This teacher was a member of a cohort of mathematics teachers and career technical educators who participated in a two-week intensive summer institute investigating autonomous vehicles. During the academic year, the follow up support for these educators includes classroom support and monthly meetings where teachers give a formal presentation on their lessons. This paper presents the first of nine presentations that will be given by the mathematics educators during the 2020-2021 academic year. While her students loved the lesson, she reveals that the lesson will have to serve as an algebra I curriculum add-on as she does not perceive that this activity will adequately prepare her students for the state mandated algebra I examination.
