What does it look like in the classroom?

Teachers are using IRL as a supplementary resource to engage their students in mathematics. Using real world scenarios teachers are able to answer the question "Why".


Parents are using 'IRL' as a way to support the learning that occurs in school. Many parents find the resource a great tool for the family to be involved in the Maths of today's generation.

This product meets a need that I haven’t seen met by any other mathematics resources, by teaching maths through real world ideas.
