"How am I ever going to use this stuff?"

In response to this nagging question, these real-world math problems were contributed by a variety of business professionals and demonstrate the relevance of math in today’s world.

The intent of these lessons is to excite students about mathematics, to expose students to professions that employ mathematics, and to demonstrate the relevance of mathematics in solving real-world challenges. Connecting learning to the world of work helps students see how knowledge is applied and acts to motivate them.  It helps students see how what they learn relates to life beyond school so that young people can be better prepared for the rapidly changing world.

Math in the Workplace problems are aligned with both the national Standards for School mathematics and the Idaho State mathematics Achievement Standards.

These lessons are designed to be copied for the classroom, with both a question and an answer page. If you have questions or would like to submit lessons for future publication, contact Micron’s K-12 Programs.
