Product Description:

Subtitled, Discover the Power of Mathematics in the Real World, this workbook helps you say and prove, “Yes, Virginia, there is a reason for math!” Each of the 55 short chapters takes mostly 21st century events, and then steps you through analyzing and then applying mathematical principles to find errors and the real answer. These are real-world opportunities to creatively investigate the issue and problem solve. Did Ed get a good deal on tires? Is rent-to-own or this college loan a good idea? Full of engaging, black & white cartoons (how about an Einstein-looking teacher guiding you in math?), this book shows the crucial value of applying math in daily situations. Detailed answers in back. Teachers and parents may photocopy, 233 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

Looks fun, and like a great option for alternative math for my creative highschooler

It is important for students to have a practical connection to why they are learning math concepts, not that they are a separate entity that has no purpose to their lives.

I want my daughter to learn practical applications for real world math. A way to sum up all the Algebra and Geometry she's learned into something she'll actually use.
