Every teacher has had to answer the question, “When will I ever use this math in my life?” This session will focus on ways to take basic core math concepts including decimals, fractions, ratios, probability, and graphing to engage students in meaningful “hand’s on” activities related to the real world. We will look at using decimals as we “play” the Stock Market. Then, who doesn’t love football? Students can pick their favorite football team and look at different types of data as they write fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios. Participants will also be shown many ways to include graphing and probability in these activities. And, if football isn’t your thing, these same activities can be adapted to any sport that tickles your fancy! Who ever said math was boring? Come and learn how to best answer the question that math is used all the time in our lives, and best of all- It’s FUN!
