Race 2 Achieve is a free supplemental curriculum for 11th and 12th grade math classes aligned to Common Core standards. The focus is on how the Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR team uses key concepts from Algebra II and trigonometry, and applies them in a real-world context.
The project-based curriculum includes a complete and adaptable kit with:
- A comprehensive teacher’s guide
- Student notebooks
- Videos featuring Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Hendrick Motorsports Engineers
- Car kits for each team of 5 students
- Pre- and post- curriculum assessments
Race 2 Achieve is designed to be used over approximately five-ten class periods. Small teams of students work together to each build a race-ready car culminating with a class “race day” competition to determine which team has built the most efficient car from the car kits provided with the curriculum materials. Teachers are provided with all of the components necessary for teams to assemble their cars.
Race 2 Achieve was free to the first thousand 11th and 12th grade math classrooms interested. Unfortunately that number has been reached. However, complete the signup form here and you will be placed on a waiting list.
