Mathalicious is designed to provide something that’s lacking in most math programs, namely, relevance. The website poses real world problems where mathematical concepts must be applied in order to find solutions. The situations presented are all of high interest to middle school students, aligned to Common Core Standards, and done in an attractive and polished way. Teachers control the progression of events to match the needs of each group. A problem is shown to the class through a multimedia slideshow. The students then work together to apply what they’ve learned in their regular math program to solve the problem at hand. This effectively demonstrates how math skills translate into everyday experience. The approach is unique, and provides the math teacher with tools to engage and motivate students. Mathalicious would be a valuable addition to any middle school math program.
