This week, The New York Times published an article, "Solving a Leafy Mathematical Mystery". I love this because it helps our adult learners seen that math helps us to make sense of the world. It isn't just based on problems or variables - there is a purpose. I plan to share this with my class; it will give context and we look for other plants that use math in them. The bonus of expanding on this topic? It becomes a science discussion, too.
What are some other ways you bring math to life beyond just problems, numbers, and variables? I am looking for new classroom ideas and would love to hear some of yours.
Help me to be more creative in my classrooms, PLEASE!
