Favorite comments of '10: Anonymous on "real world" math


Really, I don't think there is any such thing as math at the K-12 level that isn't "real world." What teachers and others mean when they say it isn't "real world" is either that it focuses on the concept/practice level instead of the applicaiton level, OR that it involves applications that they personally don't find engaging.
