Get the Math
I know, I gush about a lot of these sites – but, OMG, this is sooooo cool! Get the Math has videos of people in different fields (cool ones, like game design, fashion design, music and basketball) talking about how they use math in their jobs. The videos are each about five minutes long. After the video, there’s an interactive challenge so students can try it out themselves. If you are teaching Algebra and have heard that dreaded question “When am I ever going to use this?” and all you could think of was “Well, you might want to be an engineer one day” – this is for you! Great for middle and high schoolers and FREE!
