Projects that Connect Math and Life

Hello colleagues, There is a lot of evidence that project-based learning is hugely motivating and allows teachers to target a number of standards effectively. Check out this story, "Teacher Uses Math to Teach about Life," about high school math teacher, Michelle Bair, who engages students in a couple of projects that use math to solve real life challenges.

What projects have you found to be effective and engaging? How do learners respond to project-based learning?  What standards were the target of these projects?

Thanks, in advance, for sharing your effective projects.

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
