Using Video to Energize Academic Curriculums

Recently, the Northeast Wisconsin (NEW) Manufacturing Alliance along with local technology teachers and area businesses launched a new installment of the celebrated Get Real Math academic curriculum initiative.

“When am I ever going to use this?”

NEW Alliance Chairperson Bill Bartnik is convinced that the key to having a robust manufacturing economy in Northeast Wisconsin is making sure local students get serious about learning math. Coupled with custom lesson plans and labs, the Get Real Math videos help teachers answer a match student’s proverbial question, “When am I ever going to use this?” by illustrating the relevancy in what they are teaching and how critical understanding math is in our daily lives.
For students, the videos show how math is used in the real world; how people can apply seventh and eighth grade “Common Core” math skills to real-life workplace problems. Each video is sponsored by a leading manufacturer and addresses an operational challenge specific to that manufacturer’s industry. The videos are shot and edited by EverEffect’s own Ron Tupper.
