The goal of S’mores and More is to help students who have not been actively engaged in their math classes and are therefore not performing at grade-level. Some students may not be engaged because they see math as something that takes place in the classroom, rather than something that is an intrinsic part of their everyday lives. By using examples drawn from kids’ lives and presenting concepts in a variety of ways--standard text, visualizations, interactive charts, and games—we demonstrate that ratios and rates are part of our daily lives and help to internalize these concepts.
