This week, linking math to Mother's Day has been occupying my thoughts. We know that authentic learning is best, but sometimes it's not as easy as it looks. So, where's the math in Mother's Day? Well, we could graph age groups of the mothers of our students, we could also determine the difference in student and mother's ages, we could estimate the cost of Mother's Day gifts and determine the taxes, or we could ask you! Post your ideas about linking Mother's Day and math. Here's a great starting point.
