### New Make It Real Learning products

I've recently added a whole slew of new Make It Real Learning activity workbooks to my site (I have had some already).

These workbooks concentrate on answering the age-old question, "When am I ever going to use this (math)?"

SALE! Get Make It Real Learning workbooks 25% off at Kagi store. Use coupon AUGUSTSALE. Coupon valid till August 20, 2012.

OR BETTER YET! Get a whole bundle of them up to 50% off at Homeschool Buyers Co-op's group buy (runs till the end of August)

The workbooks contain activities or problem situations taken from real-life, with real data. Some examples of the situations are: cell phone plans, autism, population growth, cooking, borrowing money, credit cards, life spans, music downloads, etc. etc.

As students work through the problems, they can use the math skills and concepts they have learned in their math curriculum (such as the concept of average or graphing), and apply those to a situation from real-life.

Typically, the activities contain challenging parts and therefore allow students to practice real problem solving - not just apply knowledge from textbook examples to other almost identical problems.

Ok, and here's the whole list of the workbooks, by topic, with normal pricing, so you can learn more about each. Keep in mind you can get 25% off of them till August 20, 2012, using the coupon AUGUSTSALE:
