As any math teacher will tell you, one of the most common questions students ask is:
“When will I use (enter math skill here) in real life?“
It can often be one of the hardest questions to answer too.
Because most students see right through the classic “real world applications” that have been part of math lessons forever.
You know the type. If train A leaves at 10am, and train B leaves at 10:30, blah blah blah.
Am I right?
