Welcome to the Get Real Math blog. We look forward to sharing with you innovative ways to use real-world contexts to make math come alive for students.  Although many of the blog posts will focus on creative ways to teach the concepts in College Algebra: A Make It Real Approach and Precalculus: A Make It Real Approach, we will also share other insights into teaching and the world of math education. To provide you with a diverse set of perspectives, the author team (Frank, Scott, Trey, and Alan) will post to this blog with the goal of better helping students learn why math matters and how to use it in daily life.
