Looking for ways to incorporate real world experiences into middle and high school math classes?

Get The Math provides algebra-based real-world challenges for middle and high school students. The challenges focus on fashion, videogame design, and music production.  Students are provided with an interactive problem to solve. By watching video segments where professionals encounter algebraic problems, students become engaged and use interactive tools within the website to try and solve problems themselves.  Students then return to the video to see the professional team’s solution.

This site includes lesson plans and related resources for teachers as well.

Watch this short video to see how you can use Get The Math to support algebra instruction in your classroom. http://www.thirteen.org/get-the-math/teachers/overview-of-the-lessons/26/
