I am presenting in Hope, British Columbia today, on the topic of Math in the Real World. Here are my presentation slides.
You will probably notice that sections 6 and 7 of my presentation are not completely focused on the topic of "math in the real world" but I feel like they are such important concepts for mathematics teachers to understand that I needed to include them in my presentation.
