Here are 51 interesting, true-to-life situations to motivate teenagers to apply math skills for solving everyday problems. For example, in the story "The Challenge" students use decimals and averages as they compare rival football teams' statistics. In "An Interesting Loan", they get practical experience working with money as they help Mike figure out how to pay for a new dirt bike. Each reproducible story is followed by three increasingly difficult groups of problems that focus on the same math topic, making it easy for students of all ability levels to develop the math skills being stressed in the lesson.About the Author:
