It's the first Wednesday of September which means it's time for our new linky - Math IS Real Life. Last month was super successful! We've even created a Pinterest Board of all the posts that were linked up last month. We will continue to pin them each month to keep all of these AMAZING posts in one location!
Presenting..... math IS real life: September edition! A monthly REAL WORLD math blog link-up hosted by 4mulaFun, Fourth Grade Studio, Teaching to Inspire in 5th, AND MissMathDork,
For this Math is Real Life September edition, I would love to take the opportunity to blog about my awesome stepson! He is a senior in high school and the varsity quarterback for his team. He is awesome and the post today is connected to him, kinda sorta!
Here he is!!
Since he is the quarterback and an awesome player (if I do say so myself), his dad and I knew we needed to get a subscription to the local newspaper to keep track of any pictures of him in the paper. So, we looked up the deals for our newspaper to be delivered by carrier and tried to decide the best fit for our needs.
Here were our two options that we had narrowed down. One year at $129 or month by month for $12.
Of course at first glance the monthly subscription is less money and I wanted to go with that. However, Jeffery wanted the entire year so we did a little math to determine the savings for each option.
Can't argue with those savings! So we went with the entire year.
Can't wait to see the other examples and how you use Math in your Real Life. Link up!
We are so incredibly excited to read about how YOU use MATH in your REAL LIFE!!!
