About Get Real Math

Mathematics is a lens through which we can see and better understand the world. Yet, too often, teachers and textbooks fail to help students connect the mathematics they are learning to their personal lives. In our classrooms we use numerous and varied real world contexts to introduce mathematical concepts. Readers of this blog will help answer for their students the question, “When am I ever going to use this?” We want students to learn the mathematical concepts behind the procedures and discover how to apply quantitative thinking in their daily lives. We hope this blog will provide you the tips and tools to try this approach in your classrooms.
