# Making It Meaningful

Help your students apply real-world facts and statistics to genuine questions, problems, and situations to build standards-based math and science skills. Participants will experience practical approaches to building meaningful classroom activities and assessments using science content, math skills, easy-to-use technology tools and quality websites. Make math and science relevant, enjoyable, and just plain fun!

We'll explore topics in the following five areas:

- The Question of Context: How Real Is Real?
- Inquiry-based Learning
- Online Student Resources
- Inquiry Starters
- Teacher Resources
