Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Online Math Applications
We designed our web page to meet three educational objectives: To apply math to real-life situations; To make math interesting and stimulating; To share interactive math experiences over the Internet. We show that math is part of our daily life by applying it to driving a car, listening to music, using a computer and saving and investing for college funds. The mathematical concepts in each of our topics are defined with simple equations at elementary and junior high math levels. When students realize that they can use simple math to understand and solve problems relevant to their lives, they will discover that math is stimulating. We take away fear of learning math by using simple equations for complicated real-life application. We ask users to submit a quiz to share in the hope of stimulating their imagination in the real world. As more users submit their quizzes, we will build up a database of interesting real-world math applications
