HANDS-ON MATH: Real World Applications

Math & Science

“When are we ever gonna use this?” is a question often asked by math students. This happens because skills are so frequently taught in isolation from their application. By participating in hands-on math activities, our students learn the connection between what is taught in the classroom and the real world. This course offers something for all teachers K-12; whether they are specialized math teachers at the high school level or elementary teachers who do it all, Hands-On Math will help students answer their own question…………..“When are we ever gonna use this?”  This course is appropriate for teachers K-12.

Participants will select the text most appropriate to their individual teaching levels:

  • Grades K-8 teachers will use: Math Wise! Over 100 Hands-On Activities that Promote Real Math Understanding by Jim Overholt & Laurie Kincheloe 
  • Grades 6-12 teachers will use: Hands-On Math Projects with Real-Life Applications by Judith & Gary Meschla.​​​
