    Amanda, I struggle with this as well! I have found that is best to be honest with them. Sometimes I tell them that some of what they learn won’t be used in the real world unless they go into certain professions, but that math is learning how to problem solve…that is a skill that everyone will use!

    I also try to take pictures of situations where I have used math in my daily life. I have taken pictures of recipes, receipts, math fails, etc.
