Get The Math

Get The Math provides algebra-based real-world challenges for middle and high school students. The challenges focus on fashion, videogame design, and music production and give students an interactive problem to solve. Students watch video segments where professionals encounter algebraic problems, then are given interactive tools within the website to try and solve the problem themselves.  Students then return to the video to see the professional team’s solution.

This site includes lesson plans and related resources for teachers as well.  Watch this short video to see how you can use Get The Math to support algebra instruction in your classroom. http://www.thirteen.org/get-the-math/teachers/overview-of-the-lessons/26/
