Mrs. Dieker has her students take pictures in their community of the math concepts they are learning in geometry.  For example, her students take photos of angles and shapes around their urban homes.  They then have to caption those photos with the concept covered in class.  They also use class #hastags to identify certain themes (e.g. parallel lines intersecting). This exercise establishes relevance in class.
