We’re guessing you’ve heard the age-old question “When am I going to use what I’m learning in real life?” from students a time or two (or several hundred). We enjoy how Dan Rockmore connects math to exercise in the article “Working Out the Math.” He brings up ideas of how you can connect math to your exercise regimen by counting your reps, gauging how many calories you’re burning, and maybe even creating a mathematical formula to help you determine your health performance. Since both exercise and math are important, combining these two in a lesson can be quite powerful!
