Learning Math through Applications: Math in the Real World was written to show students why it is worth their time to learn math. It's relevant in their daily lives!

Each application module in the book opens with an interesting topic, such as black holes, personal taxes, etc., and provides the student with an introductory understanding of the topic. When the discussion reaches a stage where a particular math skill is necessary to make further progress, the math skill is introduced using standard mathematical language that appears in traditional math texts, along with several worked examples. After reviewing the math skill, the student returns to the topic of the module and sees the utility of understanding the math skill. Each application module closes with a set of target math skill exercises that test the student's comprehension of the skill, and a set of application exercises that test whether or not the student is now able to apply the math skill in a real-world setting.
