Math in action

I often try to show Samantha math in action. Like cooking with her, showing her how I use math in knitting or even math in her sewing projects.    

I was about to give her math for the day it was a worksheet on measuring in metric.  So instead of her just doing it on paper I had her go out and measure my car. Measure the width and length of it. Then measure the height of it and the measurement of the wheels.  She then had to come in the house and convert it all into the American measurements.   

Then another day she came up with an idea of wanting to make the cat a toy to play with.  I had her use math again.  She had to measure the clothe  to make it the right size.  I love seeing math in action
