It seems that in my school that the only way Math is taught is by the cut & dry approach of this how you do it. I often ask teachers how they could engage students in real world applications of the math they teach and many seem to struggle with finding ways.
Is there a website out there for that type of approach? This website is great for students who have an interest in math, unfortunately, many students in my building struggle with math and don't see the relevance of it. There needs to more resources for engaging the reluctanct learner of mathematics. Many students have been conditioned to think that they simply are not good in math.
Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.
