About Common Core Math Standards
Students might complain that what they learn in math class has nothing to do with the real world, and to some extent, they're right. They don't really have to drive the speed limit, pay taxes, or balance a budget, do they?
Uh. Yeah, they do.
Regardless of what your students plan (or don't plan) on doing after high school, there's a 100% chance they'll need the skills they've learned in their math courses.
