Get the Math: Videos about Using Algebra in Real Life
This is a great site by PBS for grades 3 and up. Get the Math is a multimedia project about algebra in the real world. The site shows interviews and demos of how professionals working in fashion, videogame design, and music production use algebraic thinking. Then, they have opportunities for older students to “take on interactive challenges related to those careers.” It ties directly into the new Math Common Core, which places an emphasis on relating math to real life. The actual math problems are for older students but the videos are informative and engaging for many students.
