Math Connections


I have always been fascinated by connections between math and other disciplines. From my experience, students are more motivated to learn math when these connections are made in the classroom. I have completely rewritten my article, Math Connections, which is devoted to connecting math with other disciplines, and with the real world. For example, Exponents and Scientific Notation, Graphing and Social Studies, Math and Technology, Percentages and the Consumer, and Math and Writing, are among the connection you will find. This article includes teaching ideas as well as links to related resources.
