PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students ask "When am I going to use this in my daily life?" Then, we get irritated and give them some off-the-cuff response that satisfies neither of us, and then we move on. Well, not anymore! I have a lesson that answers the most irritating question of all time in a way that also reaches across the curriculum to use skills students are learning in their English classes!

Included in the download:
-Lesson plan that outlines suggestions for implementing the lesson into your classroom!
-A reading with a worksheet that asks students to think through a response to the question "When am I going to use this in my daily life?" The reading is from a blog post I did on this same issue. You can read it here: http://wp.me/p6y4bF-2s. The worksheet makes students evaluate the response, come up with their own examples that support the reading, and evaluate their own perceptions about the usefulness of math.
-An answer key for the worksheet!
-A follow-up project for student to complete entitled "Real Real-World Applications." Students are asked to explore real world applications of mathematics and professions that use the skill regularly.
-As an added bonus, I have also included an assignment that you can give to students who ask the question "When am I going to use this in my daily life?" that forces them to answer their own question!
