Modernizing High School Math at Last

How can we make high school math relevant to all students–especially those who have been historically underserved–given the dynamic nature of industry demands and post-secondary reforms? Currently, upper high school math is a burial ground for thousands of our students’ aspirations. Too often the math is not aligned to or applicable for the needs of post-secondary programs of study or the workforce. What can we do to help our students? We must change the equation and modernize high school math.
