SPOTLIGHT ON THE CLASSROOM: The Algebra students are well on their way to discovering answers to the question 'when will we ever use math in real life?'  These students recently worked on a project that related the mathematical language of functions to their personal hobbies and ambitions.  Who would of thought that one could relate functions to concerts, Halloween costume stores, volleyball, or even One Direction?!  These students surely found those relationships and functions!
