Even those suffering from math-related anxieties or phobias cannot escape its everyday presence in their lives. From home to school to work and places in-between, math is everywhere. Whether using measurements in a recipe, or deciding if half a tank of gas will make the destination, we all use math. It is a good idea, therefore, for teachers and parents of reluctant math learners to use real world examples to ignite a spark of practical interest.
