Math exists in the forms of absolute numbers, and complex equations. People use mathematics to calculate fees and interest rates; For measuring sizes, lengths, distances and angles; And cook and clean. Math is an absolute subject with precise equations, opportunities to broaden knowledge and improve student approaches to learning. Educators can teach mathematics as a life skill and strategy by applying mathematical equations and uses it to everyday life. Successful applications include cooking, personal finance, design, and technology. Understanding mathematics improves the resolution of quantitative problems, which are crucial in today’s results-oriented society.
Prepare a decisive lesson plan different uses of mathematics. Identify non-mathematical facts of the impact of mathematics in the development of Egyptian and Greek philosophy. Design a preliminary questionnaire to test the knowledge of students’ mathematics the history of different cultures and eras. Use the information in your lesson plan as a guide to building knowledge, knowledge, and interest of students in historical mathematical applications for current uses of the 21st century. Create a slideshow presentation illustrating the different uses of mathematics in business, engineering, medicine, and technology.
Start the presentation with survey questions to engage students. Introduce everyday topics such as savings accounts, stores, and investment. Discuss the principles of using mathematics to calculate money to make good decisions. Illustrate the difficulties of managing personal finances if you do not understand mathematics. Use illustrations in the presentation to add an object to measurement ideas and calculations.
Write questions at the end of each section of the slideshow presentation to encourage discussions on financial literacy and mathematics. Create worksheets for students to complete the presentation. Write a list of keywords and mathematical definitions for students to complete to ask for the commitment. Use keywords such as “Celsius”, “inch”, “interest rate”, “capital” and “centimeters” to increase students’ awareness of complete tasks at home.
Conclude the lesson by insisting on the principles of why mathematics is an essential skill. Keep relevant information for everyday tasks. After the presentation is complete, start a game to test the knowledge, memory, and understanding of the principles discussed in the presentation of students. Place students in two to three teams to create a financial spreadsheet that focuses on the skills of money for personal loans, savings goals, and daily expenses. Encourage students to focus on the process of using mathematics to find answers to drill questions. Give prizes if possible for the winning team.
