The NEW Manufacturing Alliance is a group of manufacturers, working with educators, workforce development, chambers of commerce and state organizations to promote manufacturing in our Northeast WI region. The Vision of the Alliance is that every northeast Wisconsin manufacturer will find the talent it needs.

Industry and educators united to celebrate an innovative approach to addressing career awareness through the importance of learning math.

Get Real Math was created five years ago when an educator asked the Alliance how she could answer the question asked by many of her students: “When am I ever going to use this in the real world?" The Alliance’s GRM videos showcase how math is used in the real world. In addition, the videos and lesson plans provide schools a tool to use for academic and career planning (ACP). The videos and lesson plans (written by math teachers) are available at no cost on the NEWMA website.
