Reviews from Educators

This is a great resource for students to apply the concepts learned in the classroom. A way to bring the math to life! So many real world applications are provided. - Vallee G.

The question sets were challenging and on-topic. The kids found them far more interesting than the typical "boxed" sets. - Math Working Capital

Too often, I get the "when are we ever going to use this in the real world?" This resource answers the question. Word problems are a challenge for students. I love how the resource breaks down challenging quadratic word problems with steps that students can follow to master. This is defiantly something I will continue to use. - The Math Gnome

I really enjoyed working with students on this assignment. It led to a great conversation about what other factors businesses would need to consider in deciding how much of which products to make, and how other data would be collected and analyzed. - Minda M.

Thank you... great real-world situations to engage students. Varied level of difficulty! - Michelle B.
