Real World Math!

Mathalicious

I came across this site via Twitter yesterday and have been thoroughly impressed!  I teach 6th and 7th grade math to gifted students in the morning and today I used the proportion lesson comparing the iphone and ipad.  It was great!  My students were highly motivated and it fit perfectly with the work we have been doing with proportions and ratios.  If you teach math 6th grade and up YOU HAVE TO CHECK THIS SITE OUT! 

The handouts for students have already been made to accompany the lessons! 

Thanks Mathalicious, me and my students find you delicious!
