Connecting mathematics to real-world contexts can engage students in meaningful discourse about mathematical topics. Teachers can use students' interests to help students develop ownership in the mathematics. The speakers will share an approach that has been effective, will offer examples for geometry instruction that can work for other teachers, and will provide a process for transforming the contexts.
