    Hi-
    I just got a new traveling position for the upcoming school year. One of my hours will be teaching 'Functional' math in a regional high school classroom for students with Emotional Impairments. Does anyone have any or know where to find any good units on functional math skills for secondary students? I am really excited, but I want the kids to benefit from the lessons.
    Thanks in advance!!!

    If you can tell me what's meant by "functional" math I'll be happy to help.

    Good point! :)
    More life skills math. Budgeting, finding discounts, probability,...
    Stuff that the students are more likely to use beyond the walls of the school.
    Thanks!
