The New York Times has a wonderful article on fun ways to practice and apply algebra in the real world.

Some examples include:

  • Mathematically Modeling Mortgages
  • Calculating Car Costs
  • Algebra of the Election
  • Olympic Algebra

Check out the article, they have instructions and links to do these projects. We will share these with our mentors as they embark on another year of the Algebra Remote Tutoring and Mentoring program.
