Help your students to see the importance of math in any future career path. This simple activity is meant to get students to reflect on what they would like to do when they grow up and how this path involved math. I tell my students that every career path involves math, some more than others, but there is math everywhere and in everything! I do this activity at the beginning of the year to get my students to see how important math is in their lives. I leave their work posted all year so when things get tough, they can glance up at their words and remind themselves of why they are working so hard.
