STEM Connect Virtual Event

How Math Can Solve Everyday Problems

Author: STEM Academy


March 9, 2010 at 1pm ET

For Classrooms

Would your students be surprised to learn that math can solve questions like, “Does he/she really like me?” or “Am I really ready for the test tomorrow?” Ask the numbers. This fun webinar uses basic algebra and a healthy helping of humor to provide fail-safe solutions to just about anything. Simply list the factors, build an equation, enter your numbers, solve, and voila—the world is yours! Bestselling author Garth Sundem will show students how to use math to solve everyday problems in life, and they’ll learn a thing or two about the design and solving of algebraic equations at the same time. Your students will see that math can be fun—and funny, too!

Shorter problem--less wordy and more visuals.
