Math Beyond School

Math Beyond School is a compilation of articles that aims to address the question:

Where will I ever use this math?

The articles span a wide range of topics and mathematical concepts, from kindergarten to grade 12.  Their purpose is to provide some examples of how math is used in everyday living and in specific occupations.  

Aside from problem solving and the intelligent use of logical thinking, more specific math concepts are used throughout our daily lives and Math Beyond School illustrates this through realistic applications.
