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.
Common Core Mathematical Content Standards:
7.EE.3: Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with rational numbers in any form.
7.EE.4a: Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations to solve problems by reasoning about quantities.
*Teachers can extend this situation in 7th or 8th grade by graphing the situation or creating a similar situation to compare the two situations. (8.EE.5, 8.EE.8c)
