Detailed Lesson Plans
What can I do to get the kids interested?
What supplies do I need and where can I get them?
Will it be hard to write lesson plans for the days I need a substitute teacher?
Because AMME is written by teachers who are currently teaching the class, we understand these questions. We know that teaching a new class often requires a lot of extra planning time, but our detailed daily lesson plans will make you feel comfortable in making the transition to AMME applied math. In them you will find time-lines, supply lists, recommended suppliers, objectives, teaching tips, and helpful suggestions.
First, AMME breaks down the unit on a day-by-day basis, both for traditional and block courses.
Here is an example from Unit 2:
AMME also gives details and teacher hints almost every handout and hands-on activity.
Here’s an example from unit 6:

What People Are Saying
I Really Liked the Curriculum...
I used the AMME program for several years for 9th-12th graders and was very pleased with it. Students in the AMME track did almost as well as students in the Algebra track on the state-wide math proficiency test given in the 10th grade… As a teacher, I really like the curriculum – it was easy to get into and fun to do the lessons.
Students with Learning Disabilities
“This material is excellent. I teach students with Learning Disabilities and because you have provided a lot of hands on labs and easy step by step instructions my students have been successful. I think this material would be an excellent market for students with Disabilities. Just something to think about.”
Mark Heck, Ashwaubenon High School

We are having real success with the upper classmen that were on their last legs to pass a math class before they can graduate.

What a treat!
I love this stuff. What a treat! They don’t ask ‘When are we going to use this stuff?’ Parents like it, too.

AMME Gives Hope
What I have found is AMME gives hope to students who perceive themselves as not being able to do math. It takes the steps simply and understandably for any student. I’m hoping to keep teaching the AMME curriculum. I really do love it.
