“I can remember sitting in math class in high school and wondering when on earth I’d ever need to use a concept like polynomial and rational functions. And there have been many students I’ve taught over the years- mine included- who asked me the same thing: ‘When will I ever use this?’ Consumer math makes learning math relevant because students can easily see how those topics relate to their real life.”
