CORD Communication Textbooks for Contextual Learning
SelectOSep, LLC is the CORD Communications Representative in the states of Michigan and Ohio for their contextual learning texts for both Mathematics and Science from the 6th  12th grades, postsecondary education and Tech Prep. Below is a just a partial list of what CORD Communications has to offer in the way of teaching/learning tools. Follow the link at the right for a complete list and information.
Algebra 1 (Interest Level 811) High school graduation requirements are becoming more and more challenging for today’s students. The real challenge for schools is reaching those students who need to see the “real world” relevance of the math before they can learn it and be successful. Now into a brand new third edition, CORD’s Algebra 1 : Learning In Context, Third Edition, remains the primary tool for the contextual teaching approach. By combining new rigorous math content and a handson approach through realworld applications, you reach more students and more students succeed. Algebra 2 (Interest Level 10  12) As more and more states raise their graduation standards, there are an increasing number of students who find themselves faced with the task of completing Algebra 2. By developing CORD Algebra 2: Learning in Context, CORD has expanded its groundbreaking series of contextualbased math textbooks. More importantly, teachers are provided a tool to help the student who would traditionally struggle with math succeed and reach their full potential. By combining realworld applications and lab activities with the mathematics being taught, students receive a more meaningful education and are better prepared for state testing…and life. Geometry (Interest Level 9  12) The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. But how do you reach students who don’t see the point of mathematics? The new CORD Geometry: Learning In Context, Third Edition continues the proven method of using realworld applications to bring math to life for students. New handson applications, including workplace exercises, and lab activities help concrete learners build a strong foundation for success. The math content is rigorous, yet developed in a way that all students can learn and succeed, regardless of learning style. Bridges (Interest Level 7  10) Bridges to Algebra and Geometry, Second Edition lays the necessary foundation for success in high school mathematics. State tests are changing to include critical thinking skills. CORD’s contextual approach to teaching is proven to work with students who traditionally struggle with math, but must pass these new state tests. It is full of lab activities, realworld applications, workplace exercises, and skill/practice problems, proving that all students can learn rigorous math content and succeed. Physics in Context (Interest Level 9  12) This oneyear physics course is an ideal option to increase student performance through contextual learning. Its’ goal is to break the “physics barrier” by helping both the middle majority and top 25% of students learn physics. Students explore how physics applies to reallife situations while developing the problemsolving skills that are necessary in today’s workforce
