### When am I ever going to use this?????????

A Mathematical Investigation

INTRODUCTION

Have you ever wondered,

"When am I ever going to use this?“

in a Maths class?

Here is your chance to find out when you will use topics like linear relationships, angles in geometric shapes, fractions, decimals and more in real-life.

Well let's get started!

• Your mission is to convince the rest of your class that Maths can be used in our everyday lives.
• You and a partner will:
• research one of the main topics you will look at in Maths this year
• find real world applications
• create a PowerPoint presentation
• complete a summary table by providing a description and at least three real-life examples.

PROCESS

Review the topics in the table below. Which topic are you and your partner most interested in?

PROCESS

2. Look at the rubric below, so that you know what I will be looking for.

Evaluation - When am I ever going to use this?" Scoring Rubric “

PROCESS

3. Research your topic using the links from the following resources (next few pages).

Write facts and other information into Microsoft Word.

Come up with three real-life representations of your topic.

Provide important facts, formulas and applications of these topics.

These will be used as evidence to support you and your partner’s view that there are real world applications for Maths.

Make sure that your descriptions clear and accurate.

4. Create a PowerPoint presentation based on your topic. It must include a title page, lesson, examples, at least three appropriate graphics and a resources page (where you list websites you used, books you used etc).

6. Spell check each of your PowerPoint slides.

7. Use the “When am I ever going to use this?” summary table from page 5 to summarize what you learned this term from your topic.
