You, Me, and y=m(x)+b

A math-teaching colleague of mine recently commented that he struggles to find opportunities to overlay math work with other content. His frustration is echoed in the following Twitter conversation. Pop some popcorn and read on…

The portion of his anticipated answer that comes before sequential courses and college preparation will probably be golden.
