Real world math ideas, projects, and activities for math teachers

### Bloom's Taxonomy in Math Class

Making a connection between knowledge (the steps) and understanding (they why) helps students expand their thinking in math. Learn all about the backwards bicycle and how it makes students think differently about math!

### MATH JUST GOT REAL: PIECEWISE FUNCTIONS

Real World Algebra Project: Students create a graph relating time and height of a roller coaster. They also write the piecewise function that describes their graph. A fun way for students to show piecewise function comprehension.

### Absolute Value Inequalities Real-World Project

Students research products and use their data to create a real world absolute value inequality. They record their results in a Google Slides template. Students love this authentic performance activity to show what they know!

### Piecewise Functions Multiple Representations

My favorite piecewise functions resource for Algebra 1! Each activity sheet feature multiple representations for piece wise graphs. Challenging but engaging for students.

### MATH JUST GOT REAL: SYSTEMS OF LINEAR EQUATIONS

A real world project comparing different growth rates of trees. Students analyze linear systems of equations and graph the results.

### MATH JUST GOT REAL: ABSOLUTE VALUE INEQUALITIES

REAL WORLD PROJECT: Absolute Value Inequalities. This project reinforces students understanding of absolute value inequalities in a fun way! Integrates technology, shopping, and math for a perfect PBL activity.

### Project: Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Curves of Best Fit (Regression)

Students research tuition trends at different colleges and analyze the results to best fit a linear, quadratic, or exponential graph. The project is editable to use the functions that best suit your student's needs. Challenging and fun project for many levels of Algebra courses. Connecting math and the real-world is a great way to help students better comprehend math concepts.

### Piecewise Functions Multiple Representations

My favorite piecewise functions resource for Algebra 1! Each activity sheet feature multiple representations for piece wise graphs. Challenging but engaging for students.

### Real World Algebra Projects

Real-World Algebra Projects are AWESOME! These projects connect math with real world scenarios for students to explore. Many projects with various topics are available: piecewise functions, absolute value inequalities, linear equations, lines of regression, quadratic equations, systems of equations, and MORE!!!

### Piecewise Functions Project

Challenging and rigorous project on Piecewise Functions for any Algebra class! Students design a roller coaster using transformations of functions to create a piecewise function. Both students and teachers love this project!!! Great performance assessment to check for understanding and higher level thinking.

### Absolute Value Inequalities Real-World Project

Students research products and use their data to create a real world absolute value inequality. They record their results in a Google Slides template. Students love this authentic performance activity to show what they know!

### Piecewise Functions Multiple Representations

My favorite piecewise functions resource for Algebra 1! Each activity sheet feature multiple representations for piece wise graphs. Challenging but engaging for students.

### Real World Project: QUADRATIC FUNCTIONS

Students take a selfie with a parabola! Project based learning at it's best with quadratic functions. Students use Desmos to graph and analyze the quadratic equation for their parabola. Such a fun and engaging activity!
