The Get Real Math videos showcase over 40 math skills used in the real world. The videos serve as a capstone after a skill is learned in school to be applied in a real world situation at a manufacturing company. Math skills featured are 3rd grade through high school. The lesson plans were created by math teachers.
What does a ship have to do with math?If a ship building company builds a boat that doesn’t float, that business will not be around very long! The use of the discoveries made by the Greek scientist and mathematician, Archimedes is critical to determining a ships ability to float.
