 Bon Voyage (algebra version) - Evan Glazer (There is also a version for advanced algebra.) Students use current currency exchange information to plan a trip. This lesson teaches elementary functions in a practical and current way. Language Area: International Business, Sales/Import/Export California Mathematics Standard: Functions and Algebra - Grades 9-12 Global Grocery List Project - David Warlick, the Landmark Project A project that generates real, peer-collected data for use in various subject areas for computation, analysis, and conclusion-building. This project was designed by The Landmark Project, and continues to be supported by the Global SchoolNet Foundation. Language Area: International Business, Sales/Import/Export, Hotel Management California Mathematics Standard: Statistics and Data Analysis - Grades 9-12 What Else Is Out there? - Evan Glazer Students access files from the Internet - a data set, a Geometer's SketchPad file, or a Mathematica file - and summarize the mathematics involved. Language Area: Journalism California Mathematics Standard: Statistics and Data Analysis - Grades 9-12 and Problem Solving Strategies - Grades 9-12

 The Proof Teacher's Guide - NOVA For over 350 years, some of the greatest minds of science struggled to prove what was known as Fermat's Last Theorem - the idea that a certain simple equation had no solutions. Now hear from the man who spent seven years of his life cracking the problem, read the intriguing story of an 18th-century woman mathematician who hid her identity in order to work on Fermat's Last Theorem, and demonstrate that a related equation, the Pythagorean Theorem, is true.
