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.

Here are over 60 reproducible, high-involvement stories-each with a variety of corresponding math problems-designed to help junior and senior highschool student develop the mathematic skills they need to solve problems in estimation, formulating averages and percentages, fraction and whole number figuring, consumer math, and much more.
For example, in the story The Challenge, students learn to use decimals and averages as they compare the Central High football team's statistics to their uncoming opponent's statistics. Students then apply the rules of probability to their findings to predict the final score.
In Homecoming, students get hands-on practice using a calculator and developing geometry skills as they figure out a budget and time schedule for Tessa's trip to see old friends.
In An Interesting Loan, students get practical experience working with money, figuring percentages, and computing interest as they help Mike figure out a way to pay for a new dirt bike.
In Jake Turns the Corner, students get valuable practice using consumer math skills as they follow Jake through the process of opening a new bank account.
Each of the guide's 60 stories 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 emphasized in the lesson. And each combination of story and problems allows for mixed practice of various math skills, so constant reinforcement is provided.
What's more, the ready-to-use format of this valuable resource makes it easy to incorporate these stories into your teaching program.
In addition, this guidebook features a unique "emphasis matrix" that helps you quickly pinpoint the reading level of ech story, and exactly which math skills will be used in solving the corresponding problems. An answer key that includesd not only answers, but also explanations and background information, can be used by both you and your students.About the Author:
