Career Academy Blended Mathematics (CABM) is a series of exciting in–depth, multi–day projects that align with geometric, algebraic, and trigonometric topics found in every high school mathematics class.

CABM engages students in math with career-focused activities across a wide-range of career opportunities from pasty chef to NASCAR racer.  The career-focused themes equip students with the critical thinking abilities to prosper beyond high school and correspond with national, state and district mathematics standards.


Students work together planning to build a staircase in CABM’s Staircase Design lesson.


Students begin to assemble their staircase design.


SUCCESS! A perfectly designed staircase.
