The Next Generation Science Teaching Standards, that primarily govern STEM on a national scale, is broken into (3) key categories / competencies.
Science & Engineering Practices
Discipline Core Ideas
The Formula is completely in line with the Next Generation Science Standards. This alignment allows us to use category 1 (Science & Engineering Practices) applying our own scientific / engineering algorithm, to innovate throughout categories 2 (Discipline Core Ideas), as well as category 3 (Crosscutting Concepts). Empowered, our students are free to run wild, innovating without restriction or boundaries, within any field of study they chose. From music to carpentry, to technology to health care, these standards provide a scale-able academically adoptable methodology, supercharged by our algorithm, allowing our students to create innovations of every shape and size imaginable, irrespective of industry, that are truly state-of-the-art!
In the case of a CTE student, who has chosen not to go to college upon graduation, and is primarily concerned with gainful employment, yet caught in a down-turned economic cycle where jobs are scarce in his/her pathway, will as a result of exposure to The Formula, posses the skills to discover and invent a totally new application for their skills, in a thriving industry, securing gainful employment regardless of economic shifts, down-turns and negative cycles.
STUDENT OF TODAY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT RISK IS. THEY LIVE WITH RISK COMFORTABLE MISLEAD BY THE MEDIA INTO THINKING AT RISK BEHAVIOR, IS MODEL BEHAVIOR. THIS MAKES EDUCATING THEM INFINITELY MORE DIFFICULT.
The Formula is aligned to 100% of the entrepreneurial teaching standards as per the National Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education. These standards include 50% of the financial literacy standards outlined by the National Standards for Financial Literacy.
As a technology driven entrepreneurial curriculum, The Formula goes beyond these standards as it not only teaches students how control and eliminate risk, the arch enemy of all success and entrepreneurship, but to also innovate using logic, valuation, math with modeling and substitution. No other entrepreneurial curriculum combines all these elements to perfect the thought process of innovation so precisely. Bandit Publishing has pioneered this valuation centric method of teaching the mechanics of engineering design, that goes far beyond any of the design engineering teaching standards, taking its students deep into the heart and soul of classical engineering design methodology.
The Formula provides a methodology, or a systematic approach for innovation, design and sales of any system or product, within any industry or field, The Formula is the only entrepreneurial curriculum on the market today that has:
1. A Logic Based Algorithm For Innovation
2. A Corporate Speedometer
3. A Usable Rubric For Valuation
4. A Visual Business Model Schematic Drawing
Our students come away with a mastery level understanding of product and “model” literacy, allowing them to apply what they learn about innovation to re-imagine new products and their models throughout any and all industries.
Throughout general education, the consensus is, financial literacy is primarily the balancing of a check book. Although balancing the ledger is critical to the financial health of a person as well as a corporation, The National Standards for Financial Literacy asserts that financial literacy is comprised of (6) categories, intelligible to students ranging from grades 3 to 12. The Formula is aligned to ALL (6) of these critically important financial categorical skill sets.
The standards contain these areas of knowledge and understanding that are fundamental to personal finance:
Buying Goods and Services
Protecting and Insuring
