This website, sponsored by Learner.org, illustrates how math is relevant to everyday life. The complex theories taught in classes have very real ramifications in the daily chores of cooking, consuming, decorating, and finances, among other activities, including gaming odds. Each subject on this page is thoroughly explained using both the daily and theoretical contexts. More information on each topic can be found throughout the learning.org website. Furthermore, this feature shows math students how to make smart choices in their daily life by applying mathematical skills to the nonacademic world: a highly valuable asset to both teachers and students. For more information from a teacher's perspective, follow the link at the bottom of the page to "For All Practical Purposes," which advises instructors on introducing math to real-life situations.
