I love being able to tie my math lesson into real life situations. Extreme Math gives you those situations that are probably going to be on many people's Bucket lists and really give a subject an amazing way to think about math. The sooner students realize that math is everywhere, the better they will understand it's importance. You tell them math is all around them but this book really makes them see that.
