**1. Food Purchases**

The supermarket is a great place to practice your math skills. You use mathematical ideas like multiplication, estimating, and percentages every time you go to the grocery shop. Let’s say you want to calculate the cost of your groceries—all you have to do is multiply the price per unit by the number of units in each product! Plus, percentage discounts might incentivize you to buy things that are on sale.

**2. Cooking and Baking**

Baking and cooking are a lot of fun and can be quite satisfying as both of them are a perfect combination of science and mathematics.

Recipes are merely elaborate task lists or mathematical algorithms that must be followed step by step to produce an excellent final product.

**3. Traveling**

When you’re traveling, you might not be aware of how often you use math. But if you pay attention, you’ll see that it’s always with you.

When driving anywhere, for example, you must calculate how much fuel will be needed and plan your route accordingly.

**4. Build Things**

Calculating lengths, widths, and angles to create a house or flat-pack furniture requires math. Did you know that math is also needed for things like measuring the cost of a project and putting it all together when it’s finished?

**5. Sports**

Teenagers who want to be successful athletes could benefit from learning some geometry and trigonometry.

They can use it to figure out the most effective strategy for hitting a ball, making a basket, or running a lap of the track.

**6. Astronomy**

Mathematics has always been at the forefront of space exploration. Many of the most well-known mathematicians and vice versa have also been involved in astronomy. From when the space shuttle enters Earth’s atmosphere to how an astronaut drives a spacecraft, there are precise mathematical equations that power it.
