Why Math? - A Research Paper on Why Math is Important to You

Aug. 30, 2020 Max Points: 15
Description:

Why Math? - A research paper on why math is important to you
Every year students ask me, “When am I going to need this?” And every year I fine-tune my “sales pitch” about why math is important and remain mostly unsuccessful at “selling” math to my new students. I have realized that mathematics is important for everyone to learn, but for different reasons. In this project you will reflect on why math is important to you as an individual and write a research paper on why you should be learning math.

Why Math? Research Paper Goal: You will determine at least three reasons why learning and passing math this year is important for you. Why: Math is important for everyone to learn, but not for the same reasons. It is important that you understand why it is important to you. How: You will have two class periods to research online. What: You will turn in a well-written one-page paper (double spaced).

Useful resources: A great starting website to find out why math is important: https://www.niu.edu/mathmatters/everyday-life/index.shtml Math uses in cell phones, roller coaster design, fashion, and more: https://mathigon.org/applications Examples from NASA, when you can apply math to daily life: https://pumas.jpl.nasa.gov/examples/index.php
