At long last, an answer to the familiar question, "Why do I need to learn this stuff?" As the title suggests, Math for the Real World introduces children to real-world situations in which math skills are essential requirements, and does so in a fun, non-threatening manner that kids (and even adults) will applaud. The theme is simple and appealing. Become a roadie, travelling the countryside with a hot new rock band. Their goal is to make a full, ten-scene video that will propel the band to stardom. But the somewhat slimy agent involved in the deal is not about to fork over any money up-front. The cash needed to shoot the video must be earned as the tour progresses. It's not too difficult to guess how the user earns the above-mentioned dollars. Situations arise throughout the virtual trip that require math skills--paths must be chosen, areas measured, change counted and pizzas equitably divided. Each correct solution increases the amount in the band's piggy bank, while incorrect answers are costly. (SuperKids)
