Geist, Melissa; Anthony, Holly; Majors, Twanelle
Mathematics Teacher, v11 n7 p496-502 May 2018
Some students tend to lose their love for mathematics as their educational journeys continue. Research has documented the various culprits contributing to this phenomenon, but seldom are solutions offered that can be addressed in one's own classroom. In this article, the authors described their attempt to kindle students' passion for mathematics by highlighting authentic health-care applications that help make the mathematics content and standards more relevant to students.
