Real World Math

Nov 15, 2012 by

Math students often state “When am I ever going to use this?” and teachers are constantly looking for resources that can show students how math is used in everyday life.  Here are a couple of resources that may help when students ask that question:

  Real World Math has some videos and lessons that  show the how math is used daily.  Using Google Earth and video resources, Real World Math may provide both concepts and real lessons that teachers can share with students.

 

Get The Math Thirteen.org has a few great videos explaining how math is used in music, sports, fashion, etc.  Hopefully more videos will come but these videos speak directly to topics that students are interested in so they provide a great starting point.
