I love this source because it portrays how little of a percentage of students believe that math has to do with their future, and how many truly dislike the subject! This, in turn, depicts the importance of making math relevant to our students.
This is a great source for teachers who struggle to make math relatable or engaging for students. It explains the common misconception of being “bad at math” and ways to avoid this way of thinking by incorporating technology and having students re-work their mistakes.
Applying math concepts to all areas of life including our bodies, the Earth, and the stock market will help children take a step back from dull math concepts and help them to focus, apply, and problem solve in other ways. This book shows how all subjects from Science to Literature come into play in mathematics.
