Salem Maritime National Historic Site Maritime Math

Salem Maritime National Historic Site worked to implement Maritime Math, a high school program combining mathematics and real-world maritime environments.

Salem Maritime National Historic Site and Essex National Heritage Area partnered with Lowell's Boat Shop and Amesbury High School to implement Maritime Math. Students will apply mathematics concepts in real-world maritime environments, while developing a connection to the park and their community that will lead to lifelong learning and stewardship. They will also create interpretive products, developing interactive activities, and mentoring park staff in how to engage visitors in the maritime math-based concepts they explore.
