Mathematical Selfies: Students' Real-World Mathematics
Jaqua, Kathy M. C.
Mathematics Teacher, v111 n1 p54-59 Sep 2017
The activity of snapping photographs to document all parts of daily life and sharing them with friends is the norm for many students. What if we could make mathematics as natural a part of daily life through "mathematical selfies"? The author's goal is to use students' love of selfies to help them see that mathematics is already part of their lives. When students take photographs of events or objects, the mathematics becomes much more real for them.
