    Why Math Matters!!!!!

    We live in a mathematical world. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures.It is frequently called the gatekeeper subject. It is used by professionals ranging from electricians to architects to computer scientists.  
      Connecting Math to the Real World
    Students need to relate their numerical operations to real life situations
    Students should learn to choose the operation that will fulfill the need in a problem
    Methods for solving problems: mental math, calculator, computer, pencil and paper

    Who commonly uses math?

    Everybody uses math whether they realize it or not. Shoppers use math to calculate change, tax, and sales prices. Cooks use math to modify the amount a recipe will make. Vacationers use math to find time of arrivals and departures to plan their trips. Even homeowners use math to determine the cost of materials when doing projects
    Overview of Courses: Students will see how mathematics can be used in their daily life as told above. The real-world applications will allow students to make mathematical and logical connections that they can understand and synthesize. Students will learn and investigate concepts in problem-solving. Students will also survey the mathematics that they will use in the future: algebra, probability and statistics, and set theory.
    After School Math Help is offered by appointment. Please set up a time with me at least a day before. If you have a quick question, please feel free to stop by my room, 04, if you need help..
