Stewart Craven, assistant head of the Mathematics Department at Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute in Don Mills, Ontario, shows how math applies to real life, say many of his students. In a Math Murder Mysteryþ, students help inept detective Al G. Brass solve cases using math concepts. Mr. Craven may use sandwiches to teach combinatorics - students calculate how many different combinations can be made with bread, meat, mustard and lettuce. His students share their wealth of math knowledge with local elementary school children during Math Adventure Days.
