Making math memorable
All students ask “Why do I need to know this? When am I ever going to use this in the real world?” Amplify Math helps students make the connections with math and their everyday lives to help them see and appreciate the relevance of the math they’re figuring out in class. Throughout the units, students will be introduced to interesting and relevant narratives from history and today to pique their interest. The lessons that follow sometimes touch on those narratives to show the direct connection between what students are doing in the classroom with the real world they live in.
