Reflection: Real World Applications Math All Around Me - Section 5: Closure

This is one lesson that I feel is quite important.  Too many students really don't get why they must learn math.  When they take time to really think about math that they use outside of school, it is an eye opener for them.  This lesson accomplished what I hoped.  Most of the students have an appreciation for what is done and learned in the classroom.
