Math is not watered down. In fact, the AMPED on Algebra program contains all objectives and standards delivered in a traditional 4-wall Algebra 1 classroom and will be taught through real world, project based lessons, labs, and activities creating a richer, more robust learning environment for students. We believe rigor, relevance, and relationships are key to the success of our students. Additionally, AMPED on Algebra is fully aligned with the national standards.
Annually, AMPED on Algebra students will operate a business running an advanced fabrication lab customizing textile products and manufacturing other items comprised of wood, metal, and/or plastic. The proceeds generated from the business aspect of the program will be utilized to self fund the venture and provide philanthropic opportunities for students through community service or monetary gifts to local charities. Students learn skill sets in various engineering techniques including sublimation, CNC operations, and rapid prototyping. Additional areas for student engagement include composite technologies, alternative energies, and automation robotics.
